    Currently reading:

    Sophie's World- by Jostein Gaarder (also author of Solataire)
    The Rainbow-D.H Lawrence
    Candide-Voltaire
    Anna Karenina- Leo Tolstoy

    By the way, have any one read Alice Sebold's novel- Lucky? (1999). If so is it good?

    I believe that is her first novel-Her other novel The Lovely Bones is just amazing!
    Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
    The pen is mightier than the sword.
    Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Richelieu
    English dramatist, novelist, & politician (1803 - 1873)

    hitchhiker's guide to galaxy by douglas adams.
    It means you got eyes like apostrophes, you dress white, talk black, and drive Jew. So how am I supposed to know what kind of zipperhead dog-munching dink you are if you don't?

    Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe - This is a very simple, but excellent book about the tragic fall of a "strong man" perpetuated by his own weakness(which, ironically, was his fear of appearing weak) as well as the white people's spreading influence in Nigeria.

    I hate The Great Gatsby. It's one of the most boring books I've ever read.

    Currently reading The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen
