You need to pick up Brian Azzarello's Joker. Great story and beautiful art. Kingdom Come by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. V for Vendetta by Alan Moore.


I'll check it out - thanks. I just finished Arkham Asylum and really enjoyed it. Great art and trippy story.

I happened to see When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris when I was at the library a few weeks ago so I grabbed it. I'm just now getting around to reading it and I'm really enjoying it.

By the way, I'm really glad to see that this thread has done so well. Hopefully it has inspired people to read more and branch out to different genres. This is where I first read about The Road, by favorite book ever!

Have you read his other works? I'm a huge fan of his, and own all of his books.

Around the time his last book came out, he was accused of exaggerating some of his stories and flat out lying in others. I can't say if this is true or not, but they still make for great reads.

Finished The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and Slaughterhouse-Five. I don't know what to think of Slaughterhouse-Five. Reading Neverwhere right now.

Anyone read The Door into Summer by Heinlein? How is it?

Finished Neverwhere and The Naked Sun. They were both alright. Now reading The End of Eternity.

I had read parts of Naked and Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim so I knew he was at least OK but I am really enjoying this book. I will definitely be going back to those books and reading them in their entirety.

Just starting into Dreamcatcher by Stephen King. Having a hard time getting started though, not from lack of interest, but burnout. I have had a book on the go for nearly a year straight, think it might be time for a break. But my buddy is going to lend me the Dark Tower series so that break won't happen anytime soon.

Can't wait for volume 6.

Just finished When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long Term Capital Management. This book really reminds me of the current crisis, especially the massive amounts of leverage they took on and how foolishly confident they were of their market models. People are not automata that always behave rationally but that doesn't stop the 'geniuses' from constantly searching for some magic formula that can predict the stock market. I suppose people will never learn.

The book was pretty good. The author did a good job explaining complex concepts like bond arbitrage in layman's terms. And the mental image of almost 100 lawyers in a room trying to work out a deal to save LTCM made me laugh aloud. I recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of stuff.

If you ever get the chance to go to a David Sedaris reading... do it.

As for what I'm reading right now... uh, I don't know, I've got like three books going right now, which is not how I like to do it, but that's how it happened.

I'm about to finish The Dead Emcee Scrolls by Saul Williams.

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.


Great choice...one of my favorite non-fiction books from the last few years.

If you're enjoying it, you should also check out Christopher Hitchens' God is Not Great. Hitchens is a wittier, funnier, nastier Dawkins. Good stuff.
