      I read The White Boy Shuffle by Paul Beatty last night. I think it may have just taken the podium on my "favorite books" list. It's a smart satire on race, culture, and society. I found it to be laugh-out-loud hilarious at parts and thought provoking at others.

      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.

      What was it about and how did you like it? Any book with a Z8 on the cover can't be too bad.

      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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I'm amazed at all the detail and research he did to write the book.
