(I got this idea from the Top Books of 2007 thread ... )

Currently I'm reading 'How to Be Idle' by Tom Hodgkinson (humour/self-help) and 'Moral Disorder' by Margaret Atwood (fiction).

Well, at the risk of repeating myself...

I'm currently reading "Confessions of an Ugly Step-Sister" by Gregory Maguire (The guy who wrote "Wicked"). It's a retelling of Cinderella from one of the sister's point of view.

I'm reading Through the Looking Glass by Lewis B. Carroll.
My severe disinterest in the book isn't helping me finish it either.
Nor the fact I just got Malcom X for Christmas and it's sitting next to the book I'm supposed to be reading.

Have you read 'Naked'? That's the only work by him that I'm familar with. I'll check out Holidays on Ice.

I enjoyed reading 'Naked' ~ it was very honest and funny.

One of those books that I loved for the way the characters were, but was glad that they weren't part my family.

You're welcome, Sarah. It was a fun interview. Skinny voice of Sedaris and all. :munch_h4h:

Thompson was awesome. I've almost read all of his books ...

Fear and Loathing will always remain one of my favourite movies too for the bathtub scene. I haven't laughed that hard since ... hm ... since the Big Lebowski bathtub scene. :lol2:

Haha, yeah, I really don't do alcoholic beverages too well.

oh man, i (tried to) read Me Talk Pretty One Day b/c someone suggested it to me. i really didn't like it at all.

i just picked up a book called 'Perdido Street Station' by some guy named China Mieville. it's a sci-fi fantasy genre read. author has won two Hugo awards, got one of them on his 2nd book. i picked it up just after reading reviews about him...which i rarely do. just about every 'important' sci-fi author/critic had nothing but tremendous accolades for his work.

and yeah, you can't go wrong with Hunter S Thompson. classic read.

I Am America (And So Can You) by Stephen Colbert.

Next on the list: I Am Legend; the original version, because the original movie starring THE Vincent Price was amazing.

After that: Screw reading.
