    Just kidding, just kidding.

    Kerouac's "On the Road" could be a good one for SP's.

    Then there was this one book about discovering Antarctica, I don't remember what's it called, and I read it not in English. Anyway, that was the first one that came to mind when thinking about SP books.

    I'm reading "Red, White and Black" right now, pretty interesting. I figured I should learn more about US history.

    I don't like reading, but once in a while i'll pick up a book.

    Right now i'm reading Barack Obama's book Audacity of Hope,
    1984 cause I somehow missed it in highschool,
    and The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs. Its a humorous account of a guy who tried to follow the old testament literally for a year.. That's my favorite of the 3.

    Taking me forever to get through them though. I'm so easily distracted.

    Same here. I am surprised by the number of people who do read fiction here. Even after my college days, I would prefer to pick up a text book on a subject that I enjoyed than a ficitonal book.

    Yeah maybe i'm just not a fan of fiction. I read Please Understand me II quickly and that kept me interested. I think I need a good mystery because those keep me entertained Ill have to find something with alot of action and excitement.

    Ah, I love reading; tis my favourite activity next to singing. I'd get through 3 books a week when younger to the point that I was once temporarily banned from extraneous reading by my teachers and parents due to it interfering with my studies.

    My favourites are books of an escapist nature; high fantasy penned by the likes of Tolkien (both Tolkiens), Ursula Le guin, Philip Pullman, Anne McAffrey, the Harry Potter series. Although I do enjoy most genres really; humour (Neil Gaiman for instance), misery-lit (Frank McCourt is my favorite in that genre), even books billed as chic-lit (e.g. Sophie Kinsella)!

    Basically everything but the impersonal superbly-T psychological thrillers.

    On a related note, I believe Tom Clancy ought to be boiled in a vat of heated sludge.

    I have always thought the audiobooks were on of the most stupid inventions...
    Why would you listen to one? That can't even be called reading...
    Besides, I am more of a visual person, I won't remember unless I see it.

    I'd recommend, for SPs obviously, 1984 too, it was great. And in the same note, Fahrenheit 451, which was less entertaining than 1984 but still interesting.

    And another book that I liked was Trainspotting, I think that is so SPish.
