(book need not apply)

So, what book are you reading right now, and what do you think of it?

I'm currently reading The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. My goodness. It's an experience, honestly. Very short, only something like 50 pages. But what a masterpiece. I'm not a religious person at all, but this book has made me consider what spirituality means to me, and how I can apply the idea of a healthy mind to a life without faith. Quite possible, I should say.

Praetorian of Dorn really good but the plot is a little  to straightforward but good none the less.

Last BOOK I read was the new Harry Potter book, which was passable at best.

I mainly listen to audiobooks. I enjoy Stephen Fry's stuff, and mainly fantasy. I listen to books I've already read like A Song of Ice and Fire, the Inheritance Cycle and the like. So fantasy and Autobiographys.

I really liked Michael Mcintyre's Autobiography. You should check that out if it is your thing.

Currently, Eat The Document by Dana Spiotta. Really loving the setting and all; the depiction of some of the characters' mental processes (like anxiety, depression, etc) are really, really spot-on/relatable IMO, which makes it a very interesting and real read.

I've been so interested in that book! Just wanted to add that.

It's really good. I'm not totally done with it, but almost. Despite being written almost a century ago, it feels really contemporary.

Submission by MIchel Houellebecq. I don't usually read or like this type of book, but it was recommended to me by a clever person. And I like it. It is well written and makes some uncomfortabel but important points. The story of its publication alone makes it stand out in a somewhat scary way. I only read about half of it so far, so difficult to judge it without seeing which direction it takes.

My reading content varies dramatically from day-to-day, but I guess the one I've been reading most consistently as of late is Moyers on Democracy by journalist Bill Moyers.  He was Press Secretary during the LBJ years and has basically compiled many year's worth of speeches and musings.  It's pretty interesting stuff and gives a good look at what we faced during Vietnam vs. now and especially where we're going as a nation.

Monstrous Regiment, by Terry Pratchett. One of the finest and wittiest fantasy writers ever to walk the hallowed soil of England.
