Just finished Choke by Chuck Palahniuk again before the movie comes out next year, re-reading his new one "Rant" as it is probably the best thing ever.

Last I read was Brave New World, preceded by Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. This month I rented Ripley's Game after enjoying the movie, but was too busy to get past the first chapter. Next book will be I Am America (And So Can You!)

I might have to check it out purely for the alex grey artwork

since i am currently immobile with my broken leg I have been reading a fair amount

I re-read survivor by chuck palanhiuk, I am legend (and other short stories) by Richard Matheson, and The Zombie Survival guide by Max Brooks.

Currently working on The Phillip K. Dick Reader, then I got enders game, american psycho, monkey wrench gang, and anything else I can get my hands on.

Any suggestions would be great.

My two last books were "The God Delusion"(very important book) by Richard Dawkins and "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, which is an absolutely incredibly good book. It's very short but it's not without a reason it's a major classic. Please read it, it's a raw depiction of human reactions yet it's full with genuine emotions which makes it feel very authentic.

Almost done with Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, started it like a year ago and read multiple books since then. Its a great book once you get started into it at a mere 1078 pages with font that makes you go blind.

just finished "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck. Not a fan of the author, "The Great Gatsby" bored the hell out of me.
But "Of Mice and Men" was a very good book. Short, to the point.

EDIT: just realized gronned read this too. sweet. lol

I finished No Country for Old Men a few weeks ago, the adaptation was pretty close to the actual book, but as in most cases gave a much better picture of the story and was just 'more' then a movie could ever be.

I get to go see Chuck Palahniuk on 5/20 for his release of Snuff. He is going to be up in Ann Arbor for anyone in the SE Michigan area. First 150 get a personalized signing + 2 other books signed. I have a doctors appointment  up there in the morning and I plan on just hanging out around town all day.

The only books I ever pick up are Haynes manuals tongue.gif . I've never been into reading books for pleasure. If it doesn't contain important technical info then I'm not interested.
