WHAT are you reading right now?
 
In following of the "What are you listening to right now" topic in the Music forum, I present to you the question... What are you reading right now?

Me, Moby Dick. I felt it was time to check out some classics.

Secrets of the Samurai, by Oscar Ratti and Adele Westbrook.

This is a pretty big book, and it's full of nifty little illustrations and shit. Samurai kick ass. :)

Stephen King- The Stand (again)

The SARS outbreak prompted me. I can dream, can't I?

I am reading Keys To Inifinity by Clifford A. Pickover ... again. :)

Lord of the Flies.

It's incredibly boring so far. :(

Protoclown Apr 16th, 2003 01:36 PM

I liked "Lord of the Flies".

Right now I'm reading Frank Miller's "Daredevil Visionaries: Volume 2".

Next up as far as novels go I have "God Emperor of Dune" lined up in the queue.

FS Apr 16th, 2003 04:48 PM

Ah, Lord of the Flies. An untimely classic.

Three flies for the shady guys in bowties.
Seven for the midgets, all each other's clone.
Nine for clowns over whom the baby cries.
One for the fat guy who came in alone.


...well, something like that anyway.

Incidentally, I started in Moby Dick and drifted over to Stephen King's The Waste Lands. I've been re-reading the Dark Tower series after I found out the next volume's set for June :rock

I've been picking at Thompson's Great Shark Hunt because I've been too lazy to go and pick up something else at the moment.

Protoclown Apr 17th, 2003 01:48 PM

I like the funny books

THEY HAVE PICTURES :(

kellychaos Apr 17th, 2003 01:50 PM

The Far Side books are STILL funny to me ... yup ... I'm an idiot. :/

I've decided to go with a thesis rather than internment period, so most of what I'm reading is pretty dry. Current two on my desk are:

Nuclear Weapons and International Law in the Post Cold
by Charles J. Moxley

The Unbroken Record: Soviet Treaty Compliance
by Daniel Rosenberg

On a side note: The Stephen King reference brought something to mind. Has anyone notice a comeback of the short story format lately? I've noticed that many established writers including Peter Straub and Elmore Leonard have went back to the format. Does anyone think that King had an impact in making this genre open up again? Personally, I like short stories.

FS Apr 19th, 2003 05:27 PM

Could be. In the introductions to his short story compilations he tends to complain that the art of writing short stories is dying out.

And yeah, I love short stories - they help me sleep. When I'm reading a good book in bed, I have a hard time putting it down without the closure of the end of a chapter, and sometimes not even that. When I can finish a story in one evening, I have no trouble putting the book away before, ya know, sunrise.

Kelly, as much as I love King's regular sized novels, I think his short stories are a fuck of a lot better. I'm far more apt to read something out of Night Shift or Nightmares and Dreamscapes on the can than I am to read a chapter of something out of a novel that I'm currently reading.

By the way, right now I'm pretty addicted to the Hap and Leonard series by Joe R. Lansdale. Man, that fucker is funny.

"Myst - The Book of Atrus" by Rand and Robyn Miller
"The Dolphins of Pern" by Anne McCaffery
"Murder in Lamut - Legneds of the Raftwar Saga" by Raymond E. Feist
"The Shinning Ones" by David Eddings

...multiple books makes it more fun...

glowbelly Apr 22nd, 2003 10:48 AM

makes what more fun, princess?

waterwitch Apr 22nd, 2003 11:19 AM

please PLEASE don't call me princess....thats just plain insulting...

...and why would you care about my reading habits? if i think reading more books at once makes the general experience fun, isn't that enough explanation in itself?
