Default What are you reading?

Purely out of curiosity, what book(s) are you reading at the moment?

I'm going through a catching up on clasics I haven't read for years, or have never read. Just finished Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and started Nabakov's Lolita. Also some boring financial books.

I will read Weasel's book once I work out how I read a Kindle version on my iPad.

I'm reading an Andy McNabb one.

All his fiction ones are great for 10 pages in bed before passing out.

Currently reading:
Weasel's book
Co-dependancy No More (my friend made me, if you know anything about co-dependancy that's ironic)
The Quantum Universe and Why Everything that Can Happen Does Happen

I just finished Bill Bryson's At Home which was great.
I've got quite a few other books i still have to read but i can't remember what they are and i'm getting slower as everytime i pick up a book i fall alsleep within a couple of pages.

Gunther Grass's The Tin Drum - for the second or third time.

Really is a dark and weird masterpiece.

The only thing with reading in bed is I fall asleep quite quickly and at 25 years of age it feels like an awfully old thing to be doing....mainly because it decreases the chances of a bit of slap'n'tickle a million-fold.

Weekends - good shout. Instead of watching WWE and wondering why I'm bored I should read more.

Default Re: What are you reading?

I only read Terry Pratchett. There's a stack of his books beside my bed. Most nights I pick one at random and read ten or so pages before nodding off.

Funny. I used to be a hardcore reader but these days anyone but Pratchett or the occasional history book bores me.
