I am mid way through a Michael Crichton book called "Airframe." Its pretty good. It's about an quality assurance investigation over an airplane after a suspicious mid air flight incident which killed a few people, and injured a bunch more. Meanwhile, this airplane company is trying to seal a deal with China for some airplanes. It's getting pretty suspenseful.

Anyhow, I want to finish it so I can start reading my next book; "Scar Tissue" by Anthony Kiedis.

What book are you reading?

    Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
    by Anthony Bourdain

    Great book.

    and last month I finished reading Between a Rock and a Hard Place (Aron Ralston), and One Man's Wilderness (Dick Proenneke). Both I would recommend.

    I've read Scar Tissue myself - entertaining read to say the least.

  • I'm reading Chocolat, a novel by Joanne Harris from 1999 that was a movie a few years ago starring Juliette Binoche, Judith Dench, Alfred Molina and JDepp :)
    I hardly ever read books anymore... the one I read before this one was the latest Ann Rule true-life murder stories book :eek:

    The last one was "the murder on Sarajevo" (if you translate it directly from Norwegian) by Zeljko Vukovic. It's a very interesting read from a journalist and writer who's writing about his life and others around him when Sarajevo was bombed to pieces in the 90's. There's some awful and sad stories in it, but it's very well written and gives a pretty good understanding of what was going on down there and why.

    Now I'm gonna read "The Dirt" (the book on Mötley Crue) or the biography of Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime-minister here in Norway and leader (general Secreterian? something like that.) of WHO. But it's so goddamn long. Don't know if I've got the patience for a biography on almost 1000 pages.

    Hunter Thompson - Fear & loathing in Las Vegas, just finished it a fun read! Brilliant monologues..

    Dan Brown - Angels & Demons, i just started and so far its interesting, alltho the set of of the story really has a lot of similarities as Da Vinci Code (murder, victim's daughter and a secret research).
    your light's reflected now

    its lovely so far
    Wave came crashing...
  • I am reading "It" by Stephen King, again. "Scar Tissue" is a pretty interesting read. I read that Bourdain book and it is also a pretty good read although it makes the restaurants I have worked in look pretty tame ;)

    I'm reading the Chronicals of Narnia right now...

    I've had a box-set of all 7 stories since i was a little kid...
    It was funny to pull it off the shelf, and find that the only one that was ever opened was The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe!! :)
    (I guess the thought of reading 7 books back to back was a little daunting when I was 8 years old! )

    I'm glad I picked them up... The Magician's Nephew is my favorite so far!

    "Showdown at Gucci Gulch" by Birnbaum and Murray.

    It's the "inside" story about the passage of the tax reform act of 1986.

    It's required text for the Public Policy class that I am currently taking....
    All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a thousand enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.

    So I've heard a lot of people say. Can't wait to read it! Guess that biography is just have to hold on for a little longer. Man, the guys in Mötley Crue have done some weird shit over the years..

    I've just finished two really good books, both by Dan Savage. (He's the advice columnist that writes Savage Love.) One was "The Commitment" and the other was "The Kid (What happened when my boyfriend and I decided to get pregnant)." They're both funny, poignant and well-written memoirs, and I read them each in about a day because I couldn't put them down. Not sure where to go from here, but I've got nothing but time to read since I'm not working and my baby isn't here yet. :)

    I'm reading "Cell" by Stephen King. Its pretty good so far, very "The Stand"ish, although not nearly as long. I don't have a cell phone now, and am sure as hell not getting one after reading this!

    Next on the list is the Chronicles of Narnia, I'll read those on the beach while I'm in Hawaii!!! Nice easy read, never read any of them before, but thought the movie was cool, so we'll see...

    I recently read the Davinci Code too, and was sorely dissapointed. Read Angels and Demons a while back, and it was amazing! I was expecting great things from the sequel, but I didn't think it was nearly as good. I'd recomend Angels & Demons over Davinci Code any day.

    Peace

    I'm reading this now too!! I just bought the one book with all the books inside. Not sure why I never read it before?? I finished the first book which basically tells you how Narnia became, and where the wardrobe came from. Now I'm on the Lion The Witch and Wardrobe, all the kids just entered Narnia and have met up with the beaver.
    Anyway, I'm really liking it a lot! Love fantasy stuff like this.
