      I need a new book now. I might check out that book that VDUbbens reading.

      You should; I really enjoyed it.

      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.

      Just finished Warrior Soul by Chuck Pfarrer, a pretty interesting autobiography of a Navy SEAL.
      Next in line is probably Guerrilla Warfare by Che Guevara.

      I'm waiting for my copy of "Playing With Boys" by Alisa Valdez-Rodriguez to arrive from Half.com. Yes, I let myself read chick lit every now and then.

      Basically, it's a driving trip through the American Southwest with a bunch of CD's, and the telling of stories, memories, and history associated with those CD's

      I enjoyed it, although Peart has a tendency to wander off the subject occasionally. Overall, he's almost as good of an author as he is a drummer/lyricist.

      Somewhat off-topic, Neil Peart really enjoys his BMW's...his second book ("Ghost Rider") is his narrative of his 55,000 mile tour of North and Central America on his first BMW motorcycle (I think he has a couple now, as well as the Z8).

      Glad you enjoy it. I'm amazed at all the detail and research he did to write the book.

      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.

      (and I bet you would call Ann Coulter "intolerant")

      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
