I just bought Hammer of the Gods: Led Zeppelin biography. So I'll start reading that soon.

Hmm, that book sounds interesting McLennonson, I think I'll check it out.
Right now I'm reading a book called The Wise Heart which is an introduction to Buddhist psychology. It's cool.

Fast Food Nation. It disturbs me. I rarely eat fast food to help with my healthy diet (5'4" and 97 pounds and I intend to stay that way if I want to be a "star of the screen"...sorry, ranting.). Now, I'm never taking a step into a fast food joint ever again.

I had finished reading Hammer of the Gods back in June. Then I started reading Just Kids by Patti Smith on my mom's Kindle but then I got sidetracked and stopped reading it for over a month now. Then I tried to pick up again The Beatles by Bob Spitz but my efforts were in vain. Lazy college student.a-hard-days-night-john-2

I am currently (trying to) read all the Edgar Allan Poe and Earnest Hemingway short stories as well as some of the Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I'd probably say Poe is one of my favorite poets/ authors.

I was reading the complete Sherlock Holmes but havent got back to it for a while. Same goes for The Great Gatsby. Therefore nothing in particular.

I finished Revolutionary Road recently and thought it was pretty much flawless. It was very psychological which is right up my alley. I'm reading a few non-fiction books but I'm looking for a really good fiction book. Right now I'm reading Tobias Wolff's The Night in Question which is pretty good, but I think it's hard after you read something really good because you can't help comparing.
We'll see though, I don't have much on the radar so if anyone has any suggestions...

Just my Mammoth Book Of The Beatles... I bring it to school everyday. My classmates sometimes mistake it for a dictionary.

My Mom has been pestering me for a lack of reading, so I decided I will try Twenty Years After (the sequel to the magnificent 3 Musketeers). I loved Musketeers, so I hope this is just as good.

It's quite good, thank you. It's the only book I read. I think I bought it in June... I'm on page 484. I'm such a slow reader.

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, it's really, really good. Very dark but funny at the same time, the kind if book where you can't wait to get to the end but you're terrified of what you'll find there.

I really want to read this! My friends who have read it have said it's really good. But at least I can say I am a fan of the movie.

I'm about to finish my mammoth book, so I bought another one.

It used to go under the name "A Hard Day's Write" But now it's "The Beatles : Stories behind The Songs"

Mine is basically a compalation of both 1963-1966 and 1967-1970 books so... front cover is the '63-'66 and the back is '67-'70. You get the idea. The only thing I can't stand is that they put a Help! movie picture in there and say it's from AHDN blue-meanie

"Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts. Very captivating!
