    Istanbul: Memories and the City by Orhan Pamuk. I'm enjoying it a lot.

    I want to read The Wasted Vigil by Nadeem Aslam, but I'm waiting for the paperback.

    An RJ friend recommended the book that I am currently reading and I can barely put it down -- a real page turner -- called "MAY DAY" by Nelson DeMille. It involves a secret Government mission, a new missile test, and the Jumbo supersonic Jetliner full of passengers it accidentally hits.

    Nixonland by Rick Perlstein.

    For anyone who wants to understand why our political culture is so toxic, the book shows that it was the result of some deliberate, conscious decisions made by the Republican party and Richard Nixon in the late 1960s. We talk about how divided the country is---the term "positive polarization" was coined by then-Vice President Spiro Agnew (well, actually his speechwriter, Bill Safire) to mean the strategic decision to set Americans against one another for political gain.

    We are still living with the consequences.

    reading is almost the greatest exercise for the mind, the next best thing is writing a book, but there aren't many people who have the nerve, the persistence, and the eloquence to capture a nation with a single sentence. these are necessary, but eloquence comes with experience. lol.

    i read EVERYTHING, lol. i am into a book called On Writing, by Stephen King. you need one of two things in order to like this, a fascination with writing, or with Stephen King, i have both. lol. the book is awesome, it talks about a lot of aspects of writing and it has early short work in it as well.

    i am in the middle of Dragonlance Chronicles once again, and i have to say it is awesome! it is a 3 book trilogy, but my collector's edition is about 1200 pages of pure adventure, with some fantasy aspects. it's nice to read in front of the fire with a good drink and someone to lay with.

    i am in the middle of a lot of books, so i thought i would name off the two on the very top of my head

    also, i am writing a book that should be out soon, and if i may say so, it is pretty good. it's called Scattered Warriors, a trilogy, but the first book is the one that is coming out soon. it depicts the life of a young man struggling to overcome the gripping aspect of war: death.
    the M/C blindly follows orders until they continue to warp his mind by keeping him away from his great loves, another character in the book, and independence despite his adulthood.
    fighting against the odds, the M/C discovers what love really means, and what it really means to be a warrior. it's an tale of epic proportions. lol.

    I rarely find a book I enjoy and get into so since Harry Potters wraped up and dunzo it's been hard finding something to get into.

    I picked up this book on Friday called "Hero" by Perry Moore.. It's about a basketball jock gone superhero who happens to be gay, and all the struggles and blah, blah blah... so that's what i'm reading now.

    I'm reading "Rool, Jordan, Roll" about the world the slaves made for themselves in the U.S. South. It's not interesting, but it's what I have to read for class this week. Oye

    If you like the book...skip the movie. If you don't care for the book that much you might enjoy the movie.

    I really liked the book, so scratch off another movie from my list.

    I am now reading "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You" by Peter Cameron. Very funny in parts but also sad. I also find it disconcerting to read. The main character and I share many of the same feelings of life and our peers at 18. It takes me back to a time and place I didn't want to go again.
