lol Somebody either didn't read it or just skimmed or REALLY didn't like it enough to care about the author.

Just read Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I really enjoyed it, great female coming-of-age graphic novel.

I hate to pimp shit but someone I know is running a special evilBay auction to raise money to pay taxes this year. Winning bidder gets to tell him which political books to burn, a video of said burning, the books that you didn't have burned and a special inscribed copy of his new book, Ravenous, that comes out on April 1st from Leisure. I think its a pretty cool auction from Mr. Garton

I am trying to finish Abstract Wild by Jack Turner. It's rough going, Turner is just a wee bit off. For fun I am working my way through the Flashman Papers for a third time. It's such a fun series.

I'm loving the show John Adams so I'm thinking I'm gonna bump 1776 up in my reading rotation. As a matter of fact I think I'll do it immediately and put away Ishmael.

Just finished I Am Legend. Pretty decent, but the ending was lame. There were some cool short stories at the end of the book, too. I'm anxious to see the movie now.

You'll be pretty disappointed in 1776 if you're looking for info on Adams in 1776. Pick up McCollough's book on him for a bio on Adams.

No, I know 1776 is about Washington. That's what intrigued me .. he's a character so to speak on "John Adams" and now I want to know more about his story. Stuff you dont read about as a kid in history class.

I should have mentioned, too, that 1776 isn't all that great. You can tell that it's a hastily put together book that really doesn't say much about the American Revolution.

LoL - when I read that story I read right through the ending and I didn't realize at first that the short stories were different. I was like - WTF with the knives when did the vamps get telekinesis powers.

I did that myself. As I was reading I thought to myself, "Why are vamipres at a carnival?" :lol:

I finished up World War Z a few weeks ago, and now I'm considering The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, since I've always wanted to read it.

Prepared to be shocked, it's very different from the movie.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

I anticipated that, which is the reason I'm interested in wanted to read it.

If possible I'd like to track down and read the first 14 Oz books by the original author.

There are two really nice leather bound editions that have all the books in them that sell for fairly cheaply, I think around $20 each.

I enjoyed 1776 and am looking forward to reading John Adams later on this year. I was wondering too if Truman any good? I don't typically hear anyone talk about that book when discussing McCullough's work?

friend of mine told me to check this guy out, said he was one of the more under-rated writers during the splatterpunk movement. Today I found quite a few books of his at the used book store.

Finished up Solipsist last night (great fucking read), and decided that the time isn't right for Only Revolutions or Naked Lunch, so I picked up Snow Crash instead.

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

I commute alot so I "read"/listen to books on tape. They go REALLY FAST.

Now I am in the middle of The Fountainhead, (abridged) by Ayn Rand....Yes, Bioshock did make me interested in Rand initially. Before this I listened to/read The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

I am actually READing my third Dan Brown book, Deception Point, I also read The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, and I think the last was my favorite of the three and foresee it staying that way.

Before that I read Crime and Punishment, by Dostoyevsky. Before that was A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens, and before that was all three Lord of the Rings books. To this day that was probably my favorite read, Tolkein rocks.

For those interested in military history: Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley (son of one of the flagraisers), and House to House: Playing the Enemy's Game in Saigon, May 1968 by William Nolan. <--Part of this book actually follows my uncle's squad. They suffered many losses and more than once, my uncle was the only one to return out of his entire squad.
Wii-Sixty FTWiin. Fanboys STFU & GTFO!

Now playing: Assassin's Creed 2, Battlestations Pacific, Madden 10, Army of Two, 40th Day.

Recently beat: Bioshock (again).

Uhm. Banewreaker by Jacqueline Carey. It's a little too emo/goth for my tastes, but the charachertization is good. Nice to read a fantasy novel w/o a clear cut distinction between the hero and villan.
