    I think we used to have a thread like this, but eh...it's dead so.

    I'm reading Clive Barker's Weaveworld now for the third time.

    Eh, Lenin's "State and Revolution" :p

    And I should probably finish my half-read "Catch 22" and Nick Hornby's "How To Be Good" sometime.

    I read How to be good about 3 months ago. Even though the book is not big at all I had some trouble getting through it. It's an alright book, not very special or anything.

    I still haven't quite finished reading Northanger Abbey. I think I've read pretty much all of Nick Hornby's books, they're good. The last book I finished was Dubliners which was for my English course.

    Yeah, How To Be Good is pretty alright but I don't think it can be as good as "High Fidelity".

    Dean, have you read Fever Pitch as well? I got that one by mistake, but after all it was great for a football book, haha.

    I was reading American Psycho but I couldn't get through the descriptions of everyone's clothes. I told myself if he did it one more time I'd stop, also I didn't have time to read it after that.

    I've just started re-reading Rising Sun by Michael Crichton. I've read it 14 time already but this is one of my favorite books of all time. I'm taking a break from the other book for now.

    I never understood that, reading 2 books at the same time. I mean, if I read a book my whole mind is focused on it and if I would start a new book I would only get confused and I'd mix them up.

    For me it's not that hard to do. I've been multi-tasking in reading since I was really young. Reading The Dark Tower, I, II, and III, going from one to the other on the other hand was DAMN hard. :lol: I'll never try to read 3, 800+ page books at the same time again.
