Just started using the Kindle I got for Christmas (thanks Mom!).
Since last Thursday I've read:
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
And I'm now working on A Storm of Swords
George R. R. Martin is one of the biggest literary dick teasers I've ever come across. (i.e. leaves you hanging hardcore at the end of a chapter [or book for that matter], then takes forever to get back to that storyline so you can figure out what happened)Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

Recently finished Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. I liked the characterization a lot, but the stream-of-consciousness/multiple POV style really confused me. Or maybe I'm just dumb.
Also, Peter Walsh is totally INFJ.

Temple of the Golden Pavilion by Yukio Mishima. If you ever want insight into the mind of a 4w5, Mishima is what you should read.
Also I got Martian Time-Slip by Philip K Dick waiting as soon as I'm finished with my current one, just read A Scanner Darkly by him and greatly enjoyed it.

A good book
I always have a few books to read at any given time. Right now, I'm on Linnea Sinclair's Accidental Goddess (scifi romance, lol) and also a big collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. It's all fine.
