I just finished 'New Rules' by Bill Maher. Quite a nice, light, amusing summer read (unless you find him horribly offensive).
Our man Bono even warranted a mention.

I think I might be reading 'Race Against Time' by Stephen Lewis next

He gave a talk at my university once. Such an amazing speaker, such a great man.

I look foreward to reading it.

You might also enjoy this, from the 2005 Massey Lectures in Canada. It's Lewis talking about his experiences...doing so with his trademark passion and wit. I thought it really added to the book when I heard it a few weeks ago:

Just finished A Clockwork Orange.
Really liked the book, very interesting...although honestly I didn't like the last chapter that apparently hadn't been added to the American versions til recently. I think I would've actually preferred it without.

I'm reading Flowers for Algernon right now and I can't believe it took me this long to do it.

I'm really enjoying it thus far.

going to the library in a few
books I want (many inspired by this thread):
Slaughterhouse 5
Weight of Water
Catch 22
Love, Rosie
Reading Lolita in Tehran
Motorcycle Diaries (enjoyed the movie a lot)
and something by Agatha Christie just for fun

plus any CDs I might find.

Why have I waited so long to get a bunch of reading in this summer? esp. now that I really do need to finish my school reading before anything else.

What a great list, whoever recommended The Weight of Water has great taste

wasn't able to find that one, unfortunately Kara.

I did pick up-
Endless Night- Agatha Christie
Slaughterhouse Five
and the Motorcycle Diaries, which I am reading right now and will most likely finish in this sitting. The way it's written is absolutely beautiful.

Finished the Motorcycle Diaries by Che Guevera a bit earlier. I loved reading it, the beauty of the descriptions was incredible. It had a good pace, always interesting but taking time to give some background info on some of the more important points. I don't have any particular political opinions regarding his later actions blah blah blah but it was just a refreshing read.

finally finished 1215: Year of the Magna Carta

still have a TON of notes to do...but...I'm done reading!



It was interesting enough at parts, but I'm just glad I've finally got through it.

Archie comics! Man, I used to love those. I love that they still have the little ones at the cashier's lanes in supermarkets.

I'm in the middle of Dave King's The Ha-Ha, which isn't too bad. But I'm leaving on a road trip tomorrow and will save the rest of that one for when I return.

I have six books in my bag. I like to have options.
