I'm reading "In the Hand of Dante: A Novel" by Nick Toches and "Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players" by Stefan Fatsis.

Both excellent reads....I highly recommend them both.

See, I'm lucky... I am reading three of those books for school... but they were still my choices. And my girlfriend has my LOTR.

I've read Dracula about 6 times. I loooooooove it. :P But I haven't read the Old Man and the Sea. I do however, look forward to more Hemingway, as I just finished the uber-depressing A Farewell to Arms

I'm half way through a book about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda: We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch.

It's astonishing, frightening and hugely thought-provoking.

Normal

Unfortunately, with the semester upon me I don't have time to read non-school related books. I look forward to the summer when I can read some things for my own enjoyment!

Reading The Heart of Darkness was just torture for me.

"The horror, the horror!"

I could barely get through Fathers and Sons by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev and I had a tough time with The Bull from the Sea by Mary Renault. I was in 8th grade though.

I think I need to try again.

blah, i meant frankenstein, sorry. i've never even read dracula!

but frankenstein, man that sucked. we had to read it for 9th grade, and we all hated it. our teacher was so cool, he actually apologized for us having to read the crappy book and gave us an easy test.

old man and the sea was so horrible i couldn't even finish the damn thing. i made a 20 on my test because of that.

college rules, i don't have to read books (well, except those huge things they pass off as textbooks) for class anymore, so i can read what *i* want.

Worst book I ever had to read was The House on Mango Street my freshman year of high school. It was so awful I thought I was going to die reading it.

Me too. I haven't read it since 8th grade and I needed a refresher. Up next (besides The Two Towers) is The Life of Pi by Yann Martel. A friend recommended it to me highly and it's a Booker Prize winner which I usually seem to like, so I'm really looking forward to reading it.
