What are you reading?
« on: December 12, 2006, 02:09:18 PM »
Island by Aldous Huxley. Check it out if you haven't already. I'm about forty pages in. This book depicts a paradise that is changed by a shipwrecked journalist with a flair for the sensational(as well as being corrupt). This is a simple way of describing the story. Any book you want to talk about folks. :-D :-D

I just finished "The Curious Incident of a Dog In The Night" (I think?)  By Mark Haddon.

FUCKING AMAZING BOOK. 

I highly encourage everyone to read it.  It's such an easy yet classic read.  Uplifting good stuff.

I'm in the middle of "A Tale of Two Cities" which I paused to read the Haddon book...it's kinda good...but I don't really get it....it's my first Dickens experience.

Playboy....






















For the articles.  :-D
Honestly though, this whole post whoring thing is getting to be a little ridiculous.  But does having a higher post count make a cooler pauger?

Dickens=most overrated ever, IMO.  He takes so much time to say so very little, zzzzzzzzzzz.
