      I gotta stop adding books to my "To Read" list.

      Finished "Under the Dome" last night. It was a little slow at first, but was great when it got moving. I should have expected that at just over 1000 pages in length.
      I have the Coheed & Cambria book from the Year of the Black Rainbow box set I'm starting next.
      Still waiting for the next George RR Martin SOF&I book. It's only been what? 3 years?

      Started reading "Henderson the Rain King" by Saul Bellow.
      It's hilarious.

      Finished Hot Zone by Richard Preston
      Reading Lononistan by Melanie Phillips
      And Cobra In the Freezer. What can I say? I find level 4 viruses fascinating. I'm also reading this Cisco CCNP book.
      Done with Hondas and back to my roots, VW.
      Future project car: mkIII GTi or Jetta VR6/T.

      With The Old Breed is so good. Definitely pick it up if you're into war, history, or first hand accounts of either.

      Great book, if you like Fitzgerald I would highly recommend "Tender is the Night"

      I honestly don't read much, but lately I've tried to acquaint myself with some of the classics.
      I'm enjoying the book so far, I'll look into "Tender is the Night" when I'm finished. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I'll do this on occasion. I read The Jungle by Upton Sinclair last year along with Cat's Cradle by Vonnegut. I tried to read Slaughterhouse 5 but I couldn't make it through.
      I think the only older author I've really enjoyed was Lovecraft. I don't know why, but I just can't get through a lot of older stuff. Most of it just seems to dry. I remember having to read Heart of Darkness and Pride & Prejudice in highschool and it was absolute torture trying to make it through those two.

      I think the problem of reading classics in high school is that a) you are forced to, b) you don't have enough life experience to relate.
      I reread Heart of Darkness recently and it's fairly awesome. Also 'Secret Agent' by Conrad is a great read.

      I read a lot, even in high school I would always have a novel of some sort in my back pack. I even had my AP Engrish teacher call my mom at work to tell her that I was reading a book in class.
      That was the funniest thing I've ever heard a teacher do. Can you blame me? Jane Austin is about as exciting as staring at a blank wall...unless you're on drugs that is.

      There are definitely some iconic books that make great sleeping aids.
      But in my personal experience I could relate less to, let's say "Rabbit Run" by John Updike at 18 then I could at 28 (story of a mid 20s something lost in a meaningless white color existence haha).

      I'm about 1/2 way through and I've literally found myself laughing out loud on a number of occasions, It's quite funny and rediculous at times but its a straightforward read with quite a few rediculous stories to be had.
