    Libraries normally have popular books out on stands or whatnot,
    Book clubs/Reading clubs
    I'm sure there are plenty of online lists or nerdy-ass literature fora that you could look at.

    I've set aside Pale Fire for Calvino's Baron in the Trees. I'd like something lighter for the moment.

    Finishing Cloud Atlas shortly. Excellent book, Mitchell is a great writer who pieced together a engaging story across centuries of time.

    I have like four books I could start on right now, but I want to go non-fiction after a streak of fiction. Something related to WWI or WWII maybe...any suggestions?

    I'm trying to finish Stonewall Jackson: The Man, the Soldier, the Legend in my little free time. Not sure what I'll delve into next.

    Right now, I'm working on three books: The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell, Catch-22 but I'm thinking of starting over again because it's been so long, and Strange Victory by Ernest R. May.

    How is that book? IBM and the Holocaust that is.

    I have that book, but have never gotten around to reading it

    Will be receiving Plato - The Republic, Sun Tzu - Art of War, Lao-Tzu - Tao Te Ching and Ori Hofmekler - The Anti-Estrogenic Diet tomorrow. The first 3 are nice coffee-table books and the latter is something I plan on devouring straight away. Besides that, got Napoleon on the Art of War and American Psycho with a piece of paper halfway next to my bed.


    Great list, I'm planning to read american psycho too.

    I fucking hate having no time for leisure reading due to school-related work. I'm aching to read John Campbells two-volume bio of Margaret Thatcher but I just can't fit it in. [​IMG]

    Finished rereading 1491 and Gotham.

    Now rereading The Stars My Destination.

    Gully Foyle is my name
    And Terra is my nation
    Deep space is my dwelling place
    And death's my destination.
