I didn't want to shit up the other book thread and I'm curious.

I'm in the middle of The Glass Bead Game (Hesse), and it's pretty awesome. I'm also still somewhere towards the beginning of Mason & Dixon (Pynchon), though I doubt I'll have it finished by the time his next book is released.

i'm currently in the middle of 3 books:
Fast Food Nation - just now getting around to reading it because it was on the $5 table
The Godfather
Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics - work related

lying in wait on the book shelf are Memoirs of a Giesha and some book called deep survival (it was on the buy 2 get 1 free table)

i'm also in the middle of a book called Misquoting Jesus, but i borrowed it to read during a flight, and had to give it back. Its pretty neat, it talks about how and why the bible is not be as infalable as your preacher would have you believe.

^^ I read Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs by Chuck Klosterman a couple months ago and really enjoyed it. Fargo Rock City not so much, but still mildly entertaining. I've been eyeing his new one, maybe I'll go buy it this weekend.

It's been a long time since is that the sequel or the original?

I'm currently reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I really like it, but it feels like it's missing something. It's very well written, though, even if it is kind of derivitive.

I just finished Liars and Saints by Maile Meloy (sister of The Decemberists' Colin), which was fucking awesome. A really well structured family drama, totally trashy, the type of thing that middle-aged women probably read all the time (except, you know, well written). I'd definitely recommend it.

I'm almost done with that. Next on the chopping block is The Effect of Living Backwards by Heidi Julavits.
