Currently Im reading Count Zero, by William Gibson, which I started on directly after finishing Ghost Girl, by Helena McEwen. Both good reads. Before that I read A Home At The End Of The World by Michael Cunningham and Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck. Also I stumbled upon a marvellous fantasy trilogy called A Song Of Ice And Fire, by George R. R. Martin, which was devoured pretty fast alongside a couple of Kurt Vonnegut books, namely A Breakfast Of Champions and Hocus Pocus. Funny stuff. So you can tell Ive had too much time on my hands lately...

I really wish more of his novels had as much heart as this one did. Kind of sad.
I just looove this book! Note: must read again.

Currently reading Francis Bacon: The logic of sensation, by Gilles Deleuze. In English. I have to say it is a must for Bacon fans.

Awesome book. I leant my copy to the guy that runs this site, never saw it again.

Have you read A Writer's Tale by Richard Laymon?

One of books I am re-reading is "The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire" vol 1, by Edward Gibbon. I have and have read, all 6 volumes. If you are a coder or a math geek than you would recognize the other books I am reading, which I will not designate. Math is God. Physics is God. I worship at your temple.

I'm reading Trainspotting to impress someone I have a crush on. Yeah. It's an okay book, although I do have to read it out loud at some points.

skoteinh, excellent choice in reading material. I loved that book. But then again I really like Anne Rice books. Funny thing tho, I've never read any of her witch books. The Mayfair ones? Maybe I should one day. I think I've read all of her vampire books. Of those I'd have to say Memnoch the Devil was my favorite.

As for what I'm reading now, Forbidden Knowledge by Roger Shattuck. It's a really interesting book. He discusses whether or not there should be limits on what we know. He makes many references to literature throughout history to elaborate on his point.
