    Just finished Angela's Ashes. Awww.

    Half way through Pride and Prejudice but struggling to pick it up and continue. I don't enjoy leaving books half read.

    Just finished the Scott Pilgrim series, all six volumes (but not in one sitting).

    I guess it was a bit too "indie" for me, 'cause I was all throughout the last volume. I can never quite tell when O'Malley is being serious and when he's being silly...

    This means that it's time to add another series to my "Currently Reading" roster. Death Note it is!

    Yeah, it was a little repetitive, and a lot of the time I found the detail tiresome. I never like it when I feel like I have to skip over whole paragraphs because I can't get myself to care about, for example, what the textures of the goddamn thistle bushes were like.

    Agreed about the victimization of the main characters.

    The Road to Serfdom by Hayek. After this book, I want to read one supporting the very opposite stance. (It's my own personal rule)

    The Power of Now. Very interesting despite the cheesy title.

    Memoirs of a Geisha

    This book is an enjoyable disappointment to me. I thought that it will be a little boring, but it's very readable and interesting, because it allow to look inside in a hidden world.

    I'm reading Graham Masterton's The Wells of Hell, I read The Manitou and Devils of D Day by the same author, they're sufficiently different from one another and sufficiently similar too that I'm able to read them in a chain like that but I think I might read a different author and entirely different style next.

    (copy pasted from my blog- It's by Siddhartha Mukheerjee)

    I would highly recommend the book "The Emperor of All Maladies"- a Biography of Cancer. It's brilliantly written so far from what I've seen and I've just picked it up. I've flipped through and looked at random pages and gotten something out of every paragraph I read. It's scientific at times, but also really well worded to suck the reader into the emotional aspects as well- it's not completely dry. I have a feeling I will get done quickly, I am absolutely enamored by the writing style and content. Pathology and disease combined with emotions connected to them is up my topic alley, so this could be biased- but it did win a Pulitzer prize, I don't appear to be the only one that loves this book.

    That was one of my favorite books I couldn't put it down.
