i've just finished nabokov's lolita & now i want to read alot more of his books, i really liked the way he writes. lolita was the first of his books i'd read. i might read another of his books next, or sylvia plaths 'jonny panic & the bible of dreams & other stories' . or ill read perks of being a wall flower cos ive heard it mentioned alot lately on this website & it sounds quite good.

I enjoyed Perks.... Plus, The cover is a cool green thing, and you know, as they say, YOU MUST JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER!!!

Edit: Think faster than I type.

Good for your father. Steinbeck is America's finest author. "The Grapes of Wrath" should be next on your list.

"Globalization From Below" by Brecher, Costello, and Smith. A horrible book written by disillusioned members of the far left, but once I start a book I'm obligated to finish it.

"Napalm and Silly Putty" by George Carlin.
I think next I'll check out the banned books section at Barnes and Noble.

how can people read more than one book at a time? i find that story lines just get messed up and you forget stuff and it becomes a labour...

or perhaps i'm just not too bright.

anyhow, i'm reading "the lovely bones" by alice sebold. it's pretty addictive and moving. at times.

Lovely Bones is an excellent book. chilling

I am reading Dream Brother. It is the story of Tim and Jeff Buckley. Pretty interesting so far. They both had great range with their voices. I know Jeff Buckley has been mentioned on this forum before. If you haven't heard Grace, check it out. It is different, yet very good.

Dear God, I love this message board. Not only are there people here who read, but people who read good stuff. Chuck Palahkiuk, Dante Aligeri, Tolkien, Shakespeare, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", "Perfume" (*what an amazing book), etc. FANTASTIC!

Right now I'm attempting to read "Candide" by Voltaire. I say attempting because I just haven't really had the time. Boo.
