I just finished punk land, it was a quick/ fun read and toally ripped off the layout of breakfast of champions. There were a lot of "insider" punk references that i really enjoyed and some really bizarre objects/ scenes.

How so? I thought it was slow, but I loved it.

After finishing Double Indemnity, it was right onto his The Postman Always Rings Twice. Total hard-boiled intensity.

I just got Ender's Game and Breakfast at Tiffany's from the library. So, I will probably read those.

I'm not reading anything for fun right now. . . LAME, I know, but I've been busy (and, you know, wasting time on the PPK. . . ), but I started Jonathan Lethem's Chronic City for my philosophy class. I wouldn't have picked it on my own, but it's pretty engrossing, so far.

Really enjoyed The Likeness. Glad to hear her next one is also awesome. For some reason I can't get on the wait list at the library for it. Her books freak me out. I just want to finish them so I won't be freaked out anymore!

I'm in the middle of lots of books but I haven't really got any good reading momentum up lately (you know what I mean, where you just read a few pages on the bus here and there and then forget what you read by the next time you pick up the book. I picked up Ethics into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement by Peter Singer today and I'm pretty psyched to read it.

I'm finally getting around to reading 1984 - so far it's kind of like going to a foreign country where you don't know anything about how they live. This book is giving me culture shock.
I love the protagonist, though, and that he is a very thoughtful, questioning character - having these intuitions and thoughts that things just aren't right, but feeling so unsure of himself at the same time. I relate so much. We're totally bonding.

I loved 1984! A very interesting book.
Right now I'm reading 'The Basic Eight' by Daniel Handler. Just a book I got off a bargain books section, it seems pretty good so far though.

Never Let Me Go-Kazuo Ishiguro.

He's my current author obsession. I would read his day planner.

I started Our Noise-The Story of Merge Records by Cook, McCaughan & Ballance

It'd be cool/helpful if people would also always add the authors and not just the titles of the books.

Agreed. That book is fantastic. Heard they're (unfortunately) making it into a movie.

Ishiguro has been quoted as saying he thinks the movie is great, so hopefully his fans will agree. I also love his books. The Unconsoled in particular is one of the craziest things I've ever read.

That book is fascinating. I started reading this a few summers ago. . . I would go to Borders every few days and just read chunks of it there, instead of actually buying it. I need to get around to finishing it.
