I just finished reading "A History of God" by Karen Armstrong.

Now I've just begun reading "Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia" by Carmen Bin Laden. She used to be married to one of Osama's brothers. She tells about the Bin Laden family, what Saudi Arabia is like, and how she managed to leave her husband, and the country, and keep her children. So, it should be interesting.

The edition I bought had them in order of writing, so it was The Commitments, The Snapper, The Van. They're all about the same family, so they make sense in that order.

Just be careful about sipping beverages whilst reading. Your nose may get a hosing.

David Sedaris is awesome.

He came to my undergrad in 98 and was just great.

I bought Me Talk Pretty One Day and his latest!

I think you're talking about TONY Robbins, the motivational speaker. I was referring to TOM Robbins, the American novelist.

But I love when the Tony Robbins infomercials come on. The guy seems pretty legit to me, as he's spoken to many professional sports teams and Fortune 500 companies.

Anyway...

I've read 5 of 'em. I can't touch anything he writes anymore. Too formulaic & predictable.

I'm currently working on:
People Watching by Desmond Morris
LOTR: FOTR by JRR Tolkien (2nd time around)

i've read 2 of them, The Rainmaker and The Street Lawyer, and I thought the ends of both were pretty surprising, especially the end of The Rainmaker

Right now I've started on "Cider House Rules" by John Irving. I've already read his "A Widow for One Year" and "World According to Garp", both of which I really enjoyed.

Recently I've read "Religions of the World" by John Smith (I think); which I thought was wonderfully accessible and informative. And I've just finished digging through all 1070 pages of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged". Definitely one-of-a-kind book that's equally fascinating and frustrating; jeez this woman loves beating you over the head.

Interestingly enough, those were the first two I read as well. I really enjoyed The Street Lawyer. It's my favorite. I read The Firm, The Partner, & A Time to Kill; by the time I hit ATTK, I was done. I hear he's changes things up in his newest release, The Broker. Has anyone read that yet? Thoughts/Opinions?
