    Kitchen Confidential was fun although I was a little hindered by my lack of understanding french culinary terms when I read it.

    Yeah, same here, but generally, I'm able to get the gist of things.

    The road is a great book!
    Is it? I read it a few weeks ago and I'm still scratching my head. Could this be the most depressing novel I've read?

    Almost finished with Duel of Eagles by Peter Townsend, definitely worth reading.

    Excellent read!!!

    It really is. I bought it way back in HS after reading Beowulf, and never got around to reading it until now. It's hard to put down. It reads very quickly. I'm almost halfway done with it after about two hours of reading, and I'm wishing it was longer.

    I liked this one a lot. Ought to re-read it soon.

    Finished Yes Man, and 3/4 of the way through Talk Talk. Stopped at an interesting part, actually. Picked up a book on the history of Gucci for light lunchtime readng.

    That depends; have you read "The Idiot's Guide to Thermo-Nuclear Holocaust" or "Elephantiasis in Words and Pictures"?

    I just started "The Picture of Dorian Gray" that was highly recommended by a friend. Doesn't hurt my interest that Sasha Gray named herself partly based on this book [​IMG]

    I didn't know that. [​IMG]

    Kinda messed up, when you think about it. Dorian Grey is not really a good person, and his punishment is an unkind one.

    Reading Michael Crichton's, "The Great Train Robbery". Excellent so far.

    Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time
    Saw this on sale at the book store, but heard from a friend that it was a let down. Probably still going to read it.

    This book's premise sounds like something that would interest me. Added to my to-read list.
