I'm too cheap to buy an account.
Impressive. Both for the effort and for the choice of books.

I saw you have Engleby by Sebastian Faulks? Have you read it yet? It doesn't come out until the fall here, but I have seen some reviews that say it isn't as good as his other works. Not that those would stop me from reading it.

Calling all book lovers ... have you seen this site?

Library Thing

Catelogue your books! Rate your books! Get recommendations! See who else has all the U2 books you have!

It's pretty cool.

A limited membership is free, but since I have so many books, I paid $10 for a year. A good deal ... let's see if I use the site more than a few times.

I just finished "White Oleander" by Janet Fitch. Excellent book. The writing was so poetic and lyrical. Sometime soon, I'll rent the movie, which I'm sure wouldn't be much like the book but I want to see it anyway.

Next, "Marie Antoinette" by Antonia Fraser. I've been meaning to read it for a while, especially since the movie with Kirsten Dunst. After that, "God's Politics" by Jim Wallis.

Good friends of mine actually know Janet Fitch. We were at their house once for a party, and he introduced us (not that I spoke to her or anything). And I had just recently seen the movie White Oleander. I believe the Oprah bookclub catapulted her career (I think, I'd have to ask him again)

Don't read fictional books anymore to be honest. Used to like mystery novels and stuff.

Now I just read mags and books about music and sport.

Speaking of comics, I picked up the first issue of the new Buffy season, which is in comic book form. I keep forgetting I have it and need to read it.

Which also means I'm, like, two issues/episodes behind already. oops!

There's an interesting story over on Yahoo today about the increasing number of literary authors trying their hand at graphic novels and comic books. The article mentions Jonathan Lethem and Michael Chabon, among others.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070513/...C7IH3Jt31xFb8C

I reorganized my books a few weeks ago, and I realized how many I have that I haven't actually gotten around to reading. It's been awhile since I've had a lot of time to read, so I don't really know where to start again.

I haven't. I'd heard mixed things about it. Have you read it? What did you think?

After a couple of months of stopping and starting I've finally finished Joyce's Ulysses.

Wow. It was an incredibly hard read. I'd often find myself drifting while reading it, and then not even having a clue what I'd just read on the previous page, and having to go back and reread.

Maybe it's just me and my low-brow tastes talking, but I found it to be an over-hyped, pretentious, stream-of-consciousness set of ramblings.

I'm curious as to what others have thought. Comments?
