I'm always curious about what people are reading, even if it is for class or for fun. So, whatcha readin?

Christa Faust - Control Freak.

I've read it 4 or 5 times now. I'm killing time until my new Poppy Brite book shows up. Damn you Amazon!!!!

Between work and school I never have any time for pleasure reading anymore. The last thing was "Anita Blake Guilty Pleasures Graphic Novel Volume One". I've also got "Underworld: Blood Enemy" and a book on Betta care sitting on my table partially read, but untouched for weeks. Right now I'm reading tons of journal articles about education for school. I also recieved "The World is Flat" for christmas and am hoping I'll find time for it soon.

"Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson. There's a movie based on it as well, it's pretty good. The book is on a pre-teen/teen level though, but nonetheless has a good message.

Haunted is a great book! I remember one chapter being particularly "gut-wrenching".

I'm really looking forward to Palahniuk's next book Snuff, due out May 20th.

I just finished 'Snow Crash' by Neal Stephenson. It's cyberpunk, with motorbikes and samurai swords and skateboarding couriers. All good things in my opinion.

I just started 'Pretty Vacant' by Phillip Strongman, which is a history of punk. It's looking quite good so far. Some wonderful pictures of Sid Vicious and the Bromley Contingent in there.

I got bored pretty quickly from Palahniuk's style. Besides, after American Psycho everything else seems relatively gentle.

Default Good Omens - Neil Gaiman

Even when he veers from his normal themes he still manages nothing short of brilliance!-A great book!
