      Right now I'm reading:
      • Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them (Al Franken)
      • A Short History Of The World (J.M. Roberts)
      • 1984 (revisiting an Orwell classic!)
      • Tropical Truth (Caetano Veloso)
      and there are too many sitting on my shelf that I've to pick up; if Amazon wasn't so cheap, maybe I wouldn't keep buying stacks of them!

      Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (James Agee/Walker Evans)
      Lenin's Tomb: The Last Days of the Soviet Empre (David Remnick) -- been gnawing at this one for awhile now and just can't seem to finish it.

      I'm not reading anything right now, unfortunately; I've been too busy writing.
      Gotta pick up something new for the train ride home for Christmas.

      I just read the rule of four yesterday, boy was i severely dissapointed.
      Last week I re-read the Janson Directive by Robert Ludlum. Ludlum is always a good read.

      I'm about half way through The Magic of Recluce by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
      So far it's a pretty good fantasy with some interesting ideas... but its been hard to get good reading time in with finals and all. I have a stack of books waiting for me when winter break hits though, muahahah, i cant wait.

      Thats not very tolerant of others views. Lets try to keep this from turning into a political debate, the thread will get locked and we'll have to stat all over.

      Me too. I thought the book was very slow in the begining and finally picked up a little over half way threough, then all of the excitment building through the rest is let down in the ending.

      A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson
      Good stuff--- Cosmology, Theory of Relativity, Quantum Physics.... still have a lot more to read. This book is probably to short and brief for the PhD student, but great for reference or Jeopardy question junkies

      I just picked up Hacker Cracker. Its the story of Ejovi Nuwere. Its a biography going from growing up in the projects of NYC to becoming a hacker. Just started it yesterday and can't put it down.

      yeah, this book is awesome. so inspiring too. My brother had to read it for his freshman year in college, and I read it for him and wrote him a paper about it so he did have to read it, I like it that much
