Oh yes, I also have Les Miserables going. Although I'm only 50 pages in.

Beatlemania! by Martin Creasy; The Divine Comedy part 1 by Dante: Hell; 59 Seconds by Richard Wiseman; Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel; The Iliad by Homer. I don't ever seem to be reading just one book.

I was reading like three books at the same time a few months ago and I found it pretty hard becuase I'd mix everything up from them and then I'd be really confused!!

I'm reading The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud. It's pretty unbelievable how he was able to get so much insight out of seemingly insignificant aspects of his own and his patients dreams.

At work I'm reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac for the fifth or so time.

I' m interested in reading that book and the whole concept of " interpreting dreams" somehow it allows to have a probable insight of what my mind is thinking at the time, also isn't he the one that said that a guitar in a dream meant a woman's body?, i really don't believe it but well, it's  the context that reveals the true meaning.

Right now i`m reading a book written by Cesar Millan ( The Dog Whisperer)

I've put Les Mis off for a little bit to read Why England Slept by John F. Kennedy. Mostly reading this because I have to do a DBQ in Government (Document Based Question). And it's really like a thesis statement and that's what Why England Slept really is. So I'm reading it to hopefully get an idea of what I should do for my DBQ and it's by Kennedy so it has to be good. (Ironic thing is though, is that our DBQ is on the Cuban Missile Crisis, which involved Kennedy.)

Has anyone read A Clockwork Orange? Seriously weird book, not quite Finnegans Wake, but still pretty out there.

Yeah, I read it years ago. It's a good book, I think I preferred it to the film.

It's very short. Once you tune into the language it's a quick read.

Don't some versions come with a glossary of terms to help the reader understand everything?

Try to find an edition which has the Nadsat-to-English translation/glossary thing in the back, it's helpful!

Currently reading A Beautiful Mind.

I haven't. I'm still scared with the book which I think was forbideen for a while in my country. I saw a copy the other day, but again, I won't read books originally written in English in Spanish.

 

BTW guys has anybody read the new Nobel Prize Mario Vargas Llosa in English? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

I developed a nervous twitch when I read those fateful three letters. Even though I think the DBQs will be my strength. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I agree. I had to make a speech a few weeks back, and I got very worried. I still aced it.

Heh, I had to look up "DBQ", a term I'd never encountered before, unless you're talking about the Dubuque, Iowa airport (i work in the air-freight industry, lol!)

That is a really good book, I read it a while ago. Well, I just read Anthology and I may read a book I have to read for school next year soon, just to get it over with earlier.

Personally, I just acquired the Letters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I haven't read it yet, but after I read this I will probably have more to say on the Lennon Letters.

Well, I have started reading it, and wow! These things can really reveal aspects of a person's character. This is an absolute masterpiece, and it really takes away the myth of Conan Doyle. Like, did you know he didn't like Sherlock Holmes, which was his masterpiece literary achievement? If the Lennon Letters are anything close to as good, well, we are in for a treat.
