    I’ve been reading the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan … not a series even a sci-fi/fantasy fan should undertake lightly, but I’m hooked.

    Does a Technical/Instructional book count?

    If so – CSS – The Missing Manual. Not sure who the author is.

    I just blazed through Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. Talk about an easy, interesting read. The chapter where the dramatic drop in violent crime is tied to Roe v. Wade was great.

    kitoba wrote One of my favorite books last year was “Hairstyles of the Damned”. I highly recommend it for anyone who, like me, is about the same age as the writer (late twenties or early thirties). It’s a very acutely remembered picture of high school in the early nineties.

    Read this last year. You’re spot on — it is an excellent picture of being a teenager of that era. I second your recommendation.

    Currently reading There Goes My Everything by Jason Sokol. It’s pretty good. A little uneven, but still interesting history.

    The City: A Global Urban History,by Joel Kotkin for my Geography 650 class at OSU. But, it is a very interesting book and enjoyable read if you like history and things related to cities and urban areas!

    Political Zoo,by Michael Savage. A good read for those on this forum who are more politically conservative!

    The Bible,by various authors. This is always a good read!

    Just finished “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

    Hot damn what a good book that is! I’m having a hard time getting thru Hells Angels, but that Fear and Loathing is AWESOME.

    I’m just got into Book II of Stephen King’s The Stand, and it’s really amazing. I’ve never read any of King’s work in the past, so I was stunned at how intense his depictions of social collapse were. I’ve been on a post-apocalyptic fiction kick lately, and this has to be my favorite so far.
