    A little spinoff from what's in your ipod, what's in your garage, etc.


    Currently reading Dune (Frank Herbert). A few years ago I didn't like the book much and didn't understand it much either. Now, I've picked it up again due to summer boredom and am 200 pages in. Pretty solid book :)

    This book on electricty markets and structures. It is quite boring, has a lot of grammar errors, and reads like an outline. But im learning some stuff.

    I dont recommend it unless youre in the industry.

    QED: Feynman
    Breakfast of Champions: Vonnegut

    Just finished the Hobbit, and now I'm listening to the LOTR trilogy on tape. Gotta be why I'm so popular with the ladies.

    A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin, for lack of anything else to read before bed. I just read Pastwatch by Orson Scott Card.

    Fountain Head: Ayn Rand (this is my 2nd attempt to read this long friggin book. She just goes on these tangents and its just hard to follow at times)

    Also finishing up 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Covey and looking forward to start on 1000 Splendid Suns.

    yeah, maybe if I didn't have ADD and focused on ONE book, I could finish these faster. :(

    lol, there's no way I can read more than one book at a time. I've got a bit of partial ADD as well.

    Just read a thousand splendid suns a week ago, not bad, I didn't enjoy it as much as Kite Runner though.

    Srindberg's The Ghost Sonata by Egil Tornqvist

    It's a study of the play's text, history and various performances. It has a rehearsal diary and transcription of Ingmar Bergman's 1973 production which many consider to be one of the best.

    Just started "24 Days" - yet ANOTHER book about Enron.

    What is it with me, why am I so obsessed with this topic?? This is my 5th book about it (Smartest Guys in the Room, Conspiracy of Fools, Power Failure, Unshredded Truth). I just can't get enough of it.

    Fight Club-Chuck Pahlunik (i love the movie but never read the book)

    Cause Celeb-same author as Bridget Jones' Diary and yes it's chick lit and can i just say how much i love the insults from England

    is it really lame that i've been listening to harry potter and judy blume books on my cd player while driving to work in the morning? i think i'm just reliving my childhood with judy blume. i'm not ashamed to admit that i've reread harry potter more times than someone my age should.
