If you're interested in the subject matter, Hunter S. Thompson's book about the Hell's Angels is quite good.

I'm a college librarian and it's so good to hear that all of you are reading the classics as well as best sellers! way to go!

Thanks for that title, Beegee. I haven't heard of that one and it sounds good.
I have been a librarian for a very long time both public and college. I have seen some really strange stuff!

I just read Eat,Pray,Love- it was good.

I have been reading up on healthy living and eating habits, skin care, and holistic/organic health care and remedies.

One of my favorite books recently is Marley and Me-for me as a dog lover, it was so heartwarming

Keeping on Reading everyone!

Hi coastalgirl, it's always fun to meet a fellow book pusher

Anna, another good biker book is called Under and Alone by William Queen. It's the true story of an ATF agent who went undercover in The Mongols.

Ooh! There's large sections on the ATF in Angels of Death, and a fascinating account of how they set up their own 'gang' and let the Angels come to them - the Solos Angeles. It's brilliant. thank you both for your tips. I'll track these 2 books down.

Marley & Me was one of the few books where I genuinely laughed and cried. Anyone who's owned a dog has to identify with him and Marley.

The semester's almost over for me, and then I'll be reading all summer! I can't wait; I've already started up a list that I want to get through.

#27 Then We Came To the End by Joshua Ferris

I've heard nothing but raves and raves about this book, and I finally read it. Tales of ad agency office workers, comic and tragic, very engrossing and very good.

There's a few books that I'd love to have the time to read, but unless it's a medical textbook or board review book it ain't happening.

I think corianderstem read at least 15 books in the time it took me to finish The Satanic Verses

Last night I finished Greg Kot's book Wilco: Learning How to Die. I enjoyed it, since I learned a lot about the history of the band that I didn't know. That said, it wasn't as artistically done as I'd hoped--Kot is a journalist, and the book read like reporting. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I felt like it needed more storytelling and more artistry in the language.

Next up for me is Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. With as much as I'm traveling in the next month, I think I'll probably easily breeze through five or six books in no time.

I'm a newbie and I've really enjoyed seeing what everyone else likes to read. I love to read, it's one of my favorite things to do. I love reading any books about U2 (my favorites being U2: At the End of the World, U2 by U2 and Bono In Conversation). I also love anything and everything by Nora Roberts, Janet Evanovich and Heather Graham. Also, I really enjoy books about Arthurian legend, and Jack the Ripper. I'll read just about anything and have a list of books I want to read that grows every day and is currently at about 600 lol.

Tell me about it. I'm trying to get through this Teddy Roosevelt biography (the Pulitzer-winning one), and it's taking a LONG time. Each time I see the numbers next to Cori's book titles it's like another lash of the whip on my back.

Oh, stop your complaining. You paid very well for those lashes.

No One Belongs Here More Than You, Stories by Miranda July

If it was possible to fall madly in love with a book, this is the one I would marry.
