What are you reading?



What are you reading at the moment? I'm making a big effort to spend less time online and more time reading. Right now I'm working my way through "The Day of the Triffids" and next in line is "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac which I bought yesterday.

  1. Hi! I'm reading "PopCo", written by Scarlett Thomas, the writer of the book "The End of Mr Y". You should try both, they're awesome :)

  2. Day of the Triffids looks really good! I'm adding it to the pile... Currently though, I'm re-reading Francoise Sagan's Bonjour Tristesse, and Albert Camus' A Happy Death. A friend last night also said that Catch 22 was a must read... hmm. To the books!

  6. i'm reading Frankenstein for my lit. & comp. class. i was a bit surprised at how much i've come to like it. that seems to be a theme with the works we're reading in that class.

    i was reading Life of Pi, but i got so busy that i didn't have time for leisurely reading. what i read of it was quite interesting, so i'm planning on picking it back up soon.

  23. As I am writing a thesis, most of the books I read these days are about cultural conservation and Airstream brand trailers (yes, seriously). However, two books I strongly suggest are Cruddy by Lynda Barry and Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, both PNW authors.

  25. I'm currently reading "Lion Boy", a book I've been ignoring for years..and turns out to be quite interesting. ;) After this, I have "The Golden Road" and "The Story Girl" on the line.. maybe it was because I spend more time reading books so my blog is not continuously updated.. >.<
