I can't seem to get enough of modern-noir/pulp style novels lately, especially Charlie Huston's stuff. Just started The Shotgun Rule by him last night and it's amazing.

I also need to pickup Christopher Moore's new book, Fool.

I'll have to show that to my friend. He's hardcore into D&D books.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Nice...thanks for the recommendation.

I've read Drood and The Terror by Simmons but I didn't know that he had a P.I. series, as well. I'll check 'em out.

Great satire and dark comedy. The movie while good is tame compared to the book.

I'm slowly trying to get through The Runaway Jury, but I've already seen the movie, so I'm not really inspired to keep reading.

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is ridiculously funny. It is definitely NOT PC though, so caveat emptor.

I am a huge sci-fi nut, but i didn't really care for the Foundation series when i read them.

Finished "American Lion" by Jon Meacham last week. It was pretty good, more about Andrew Jackson's family and personal life while in the White House, so I'll have to find a good more traditional biography to read on him some time.

Finished "The Pirate King" by R.A. Salvatore last night. Another solid book in his long run series. Looking forward to "The Ghost King" this fall.

Will read "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" by F. Scott Fitzgerald next, then probably "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoyevsky. Taking advantage of public domain ebooks!

Farseer trilogy was pretty good as i remember. I read it years ago though, so i don't know if my opinion would be the same now. I tried to read the liveship trader series by the same author and couldn't really get into it.

I was reading World War Z, but had to stop to study for the pcat. I'm going to start reading that again. After that one, I want to read Battle Royale since I loved the movie, and then Corline. I also want to start reading the True Blood books.

Just read "Restavec: From Haitian Slave Child to Middle-Class American", and damn was that depressing and messed up. Good book though.
