"The Hobbit....For the second time this year."
I finished that not too long ago! But the last time I read it was several years ago. Why are you reading it for your second time in the space of three months? =PRight now I'm reading "America Alone" by Mark Steyn for myself and I'm reading "Watership Down" for school. They're both pretty good."
Because it's (in my opinion) the greatest adventure story ever written. I try to read it at least once a year.

I'm reading Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely and Guerrila Warfare by Ernesto "Che" Guevera.

Edit: Oh, and I'm reading Watership Down for school.

I'm supposed to be reading After Shock by Stephen Kyle, but It's been 2 weeks since I've gotten it, and I've got no inspiration to start.

"A ways in to The Jungle by Upton Sinclair"
Gah, that book grossed me out.
I'm STILL trying to get through Atlas Shrugged. Once that's out of the way (if I have the willpower to finish it) I'll be on to The Self-Aware Universe by Amit Goswami and maybe The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory by Brian Greene

The Catcher in the Rye - J.D Salinger I’m working my way through the classics.
Its great, especially now as I am the exact same age as the protagonist.

Catcher in the Rye is one of my favorite books of all time. It is an excellent novel. Glad to see someone else enjoying it!

You should definitely do this. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Steinbeck.  Spend your summer reading all three.

We just read the Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway) and the Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald) in English. Both were pretty good, but OMAS was a little too simple for my tastes. =P It was really short, though.

Brave New World is a good book. I read it earlier this year. It's by Alduous Huxley.

That's what is beautiful about Hemingway's writing. Beauty in simplicity. The sentences may be small and concise, but there's a lot of subtlety behind his writing. People don't say he influenced the entirety of modern American Literature for their health alone.

Ah, finally found a thread like this.

I'm about to start reading William Gibson's Spook Country when it comes in, but until then I'm reading an interesting take on the end-of-the-world  by J.G. Ballard called The Drowned World, where at least some of mankind is sort of at peace with the idea of the world being reset, instead of it all being one big angst trip.  Not that I hate angst trips :)

"So what books are you currently reading?I have nearly finished The Northen Lights by Philip Pullman, it's part of 'His Dark Materials' series and I also have the two fellow books in the series to read. I believe it's called Golden Compass in the US. I know a film was made on it, but never seen it. It's been a good book so far, can feel quite childish in areas but also as a much darker side to it. After that I'll get around to reading Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell. "

Just finished "american psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis a couple of months ago, currently reading "Shatter" by Michael Robotham

I'm reading "Catch Me If You Can" By Frank Abignale. The book is based off the movie of the same title but is written by the main character. For those that don't know it is based off a true story and the main character is now in his 70s. I love the book.
