Luckily I don't go back to school for another month, so I have time (finally) to read some books for pleasure.
I just finished We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates--very good.
Next I plan to reread Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand--definitely one of the best books I've ever read. Bought it last year and loved it and thought I should read it again before the movie comes out later this year.

Your class hated Frankenstein?? Mary Shelley'sFrankenstein? Holy shmokes, I absolutely LOVED that novel. It's one of the best works of fiction I've ever read.

But, to each their own.

I'm about 25 pages left of Richard Powers Operation Wandering Soul...

Then I'll probably tackle Steve Erickson's Rubicon Beach and Thomas Pynchon's Slow Learner...

Oh yeah, also concurrently reading Michael Chabon's A Model World and Thomas Merton's Seven Storey Mountain.

A Clockwork Orange was the reason I learned Russian. Such a damn fine novel. I am currently reading Infinate Jest and Carter Beats the Devil. I reccomend both highly.

I was supposed to read that book my senior year. However, I was tired of always getting wonderful grades and doing all of my homework, so I decided to not read a single page. Needless to say, I failed the test. It was the first and only time I ever purposely blew a test though...I wrote down all stupid answers. My teacher was shocked, to say the least. LOL

The Scarlet Letter

Probably the most boring story ever written. The cliff notes are more entertaining.

The Mahabahrata is the most confusing, boring and painful thing you could ever read. It has like 50 MAIN characters and many with similar names. So yeah it sucks.
