I am just about to dig into Catcher In the Rye. I feel I have to read this book, aand I've got nothing else to read now.

Catcher in the Rye is one of my all-time favorite books, Sun King. I think you'll quite enjoy it. ahdn_george_08

I am. I'm shooting to finish it by the time I return to school on Tuesday. It seems awesome so far.

When I read it, I had it all finished in one school night lol. I could hardly put it down. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 I'm really glad you're enjoying it so much! a-hard-days-night-george-9

The Price of Politics – Bob Woodward

Excellent if politics is your thing. It's on the US debt ceiling debacle.

I'm reading some shit about The Philosophy of Language to prepare a class. It's not that I don't like it, I get it, it is interesting, but honestly I'd rather be reading something entirely different.

Currently reading 'Syd Barret: Shine on'. It´s a brillaint book, clearly well researched. I hate it when someone decides they can make loads of money buy writing something they have no clue about.

Sad, at times, but I´d recommend it to anyone who wants to learn a bit about the genius that was Syd and the origins/early days of Pink Floyd.

A version of The Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter that I downloaded from Project Gutenberg the other day. Was interested because of Lennon's reference to the Beatles tours being like Fellini's film loosely based on the book. Very readable.

I finished with reading Norwegian Wood, probably most famous Japanese novel, and it is of course named after the Beatles song which one of main characters loves. Great book and I recommend it to everyone.

What´s it about? The name sounds familiar.

I've read a couple of books in my life,

The Holy Bible

, a book I am obliged to read for one………..

Anyway I don't have actual "physical" books, but e-books which are basically free (if you know what I mean) enjoy fictional stories rather than the real stuff. When I go to me school's library I read a couple chapters from books like Homer's Illiad and the like. I read a lot of books I immerse my self in them.

Right now I am waiting for the next book of Rick Riordan Jr.'s Percy Jackson series. Hopefully this one wouldn't end too swiftly, unlike the other novels I've read.

"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Just thought of the implication of saying I like Fiction better than Non-Fiction in my first post (thought of it the second I woke up), I do like reading both.

Another book I am forced to read is my College Physics Textbook =-(

Just started reading my first book that's not about The Beatles, Pink Floyd or Hinduism in about a year. It's called 'The Ice Cream Girls' by Dorothy Koomson. It's about two young girls, in the beginning, that are accused of murdering their teacher. One of them goes down for it and the other, for some reason, doesn't. If follows their lives over the next two decades, and it keeps going back and forth. It's interesting how the plot develops though.

I've read about half of it so far, and I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys this kind of thing.

Ive never been into history thanks to tedious lessons in school that covered subjects in a very dull manner but was given this after my interest was piqued by Richard the Third's bones being dug up. Its fascinating, being written in a way that is neither talking to the reader as if he/she is a 3 year old or so dry a weeks worth of rain wouldnt make a damp patch appear. I do like books where you have to stop and think to understand what is written but without the need to have a PHD In English.

My dad has got this book and I've been meaning to read it for some time now. Would you recommend it?

It was pretty good, yeah.

I'm reading Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead and finding it quite irritating.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
