What Book(s) Is/Are You Currently Reading?

Right now, I am reading a book by Simon Singh named Big Bang: The Origin of the Universe. So far so good!

What book(s) is/are you currently reading?

I've been reading Nelson DeMille's Up Country for the past 2 years!

It's not that I don't like reading. I love it when I really get into it. But I can almost never finish a book at one stretch. There's bookmarks galore in all the books I have right now.

You know the "is" really isn't necessary. Both options (book/books) would be "are".

I'm about to start Moby Dick for Senior Seminar.

BUT, I'll be right back to Memoirs of a Geisha afterwards.

the hound of the baskervilles. that's the only thing i'm actually reading now. if i listed all the other books that were lying on my floor that i intend on reading in the near future, we'd be here a while.

When I met BAW, I was a dedicated, take time out of the day to read kinda guy....Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, had them all...since then, maybe one a year but these last few months, probably due to the airplane travel, I've got myself back...paperback, at least...

I've finished 3 John Grisham's, I'm in the middle of Ken Follett's Whiteout with Scott Turow's Ordinary Heroes already on deck...

Quiet time is very nice; I've missed it over the past number of years......sssh!

Red Dragon, the book before Silence Of The Lambs. I thought it would be a bit crap, but it's actually quite good.

I was quite surprised by Hannibal Lecter's personality, he comes across quite charming considering he'd quite like to eat you.

Berlin: The Downfall 1945
by Antony Beevor

excellent W.W. II book that's the 3rd time I read it...
It's dramatic to see how the big leaders were treating the people these ages...
Anyway, that was a bad time for humanity...

I can't believe I did that.

Thank you.
