Currently reading Dostoevsky's Notes From The Underground.
Recently read Lakoff's "Moral Politics: What Conservatives Know That Liberals Don't" = of highly questionable merit; the guy claims to be making conclusions based on cog sci & linguistics, and he has a few interesting points, but overall it seems a rather shallow approach and set of views on conservatives & liberals. Also, sorely lacking in concrete evidence (or whatever one might conventionally associate with the scientific method).

The Monkey Wrench Gang, by Edward Abbey. IMO, Eric Schlosser's foreword makes it sound much more fervent in its eco-anarchist message than it actually is. Man, I should really stop reading prefaces....

The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss. It's fascinating.

"The Book Of Lost Things" by John Connolly. About a young boy who loses his mother, and is drawn into a fantasy world after his father remarries. Really enjoying it so far."Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you...amazing things will happen" --Conan O'Brien

But then again I've read the seventh book in the Alex Rider series (Anthony Horowitz) in one session. The pattern in these books is quite predictable and the thing is aimed at 10 year olds butbutbut... there are cool gadgets in it and evil madmen!
I'm of the opinion that it's a question of taste, not of quality. Twilight is good because you enjoyed it.Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
