Currently Reading...

Post by buttterflies » Sat May 17, 2008 8:44 pm

since there's a Currently Listening thread,... i figured why not make one about what we're reading! :grin: this way we can find more cool stuff to read...


so i'm reading: The Inheritance of Loss - by Kiran Desai

i'm nearly halfway done, and absolutely love it so far... i recommend! :thumbsup:

The Shell Game by Steve Alten
Presented as a novel, it is an eye opening expose of 9-11 with a lot of truth behind it.

it is kind of sad in a hemingway kind of way but the details and civil war thoughts and images are really cool......i have never seen the movie and have had the book tucked away for years and finally pulled it out and finished it just the other day.......i would recomend it but i do see where it could be very depressing.....lol :mrgreen:
