just finished "I drink for a reason" by david cross. quick read. took me 2 days of light reading but i think it took that long because i spent so much time laughing. if you're into humor and not just serious reading, check it out. it's basically a series of rants but damn are the funny.

bump.

finished the millenium trilogy right before xmas. awesome! can't believe i waited to long to start it.

just read jonathan franzen's -- the corrections. really good, depressing yet crazy addicting. it's modern fiction, but it reminds you of something that they should teach in school but don't because of questionable, yet very real subject matter. can't wait to start his newest -- freedom.

wanting to read the mark twain autobiography. sounds interesting.

I've honestly only read "Moonlight Mile" by Dennis Lehane since I finished the Millennium trilogy like 6 months ago. Anyone know of some good crime novels in the vein of the Millenium books?

i love the corrections. it was very sad. i read it mostly on trains. i hated denise so much in the beginning then she quickly became my favourite character. chip was a car crash that just kept happening all the time.

yeah, i'm looking for more too. although i can recommend some true crime that i really liked: helter skelter & zodiac -- but those aren't too new or anything.

My buddy bought me Jesse Ventura's new book "Government Conspiracies" for a late Christmas present.  I have only had time to read the introduction today.  But I'm kind of excited to read it.  I think its going to be pretty good.

  • Wake up, don't fear I want to love you...
I haven't read a book in a year, so I got myself one! I've been reading Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami. Something about his writing that I absolutely love. His books always put my imagination on a rollercoaster of emotions. Loves it!
..Yeah don't go there,

I let you get to me

yeah yeah.

Jesus - I didnt even realise there was a book thread going on - I'll briskly peruse the previous pages to pluck a suggestion or two and purchase them then forthwith to allow myself the pleasure of retaining the delights their pages hold.  In the meantime, everyone should check out the duo by Tana French - In the Woods and the likeness - some really rather splendid crime novels....In the Woods is told first person about a guy who takes on a case bearing several similarities to an incident he himself was a victim of whilst a child during which he blacked out, and is therefore plunged into a journey into finding answers to what happened.  His partner is the only one who knows what happened - which leads on to the second, which is instead told through the eyes of the partner, where she bears an uncanny physical resemblence to a murdered girl, and is therefore sent in undercover as the girl to discover the truth.  Both shit hot.
