    I just finished a book called, "The Juicy Parts."
    The book is a summery of the biographies of famous people, with only Ďthe juicy partsí mentioned. It was really cute.
    Now Iím reading a volume of short stories.

    I'm stalling in my reading schedule. Right now, I'm reading articles on Lolita instead of reading Beloved and The Symposium by Plato.

    I've tried many times to read Lolita, never got very far. I never even got past the man describing his own back story. It was such a boring book. Anyone read it? Did it ever get any better?

    Well, it isn't about the story, it's more about the manipulation of words and the reader. You should get an annotated edition to enjoy it properly.

    "Jokes my Father Never Taught Me" by Rain Pryor. She talks about meeting her father Richard for the first time. Actually not a bad read so far.

    The Bad Seed. Just a couple of chapters in, but I can tell it's more intense than the movie.

    It's much better, and very different.

    Yes, I did, although I haven't finished reading the copy I bought years ago!

    I'm currently reading a few different books, depending on what mood I'm in. I've been re-reading David & Leigh Eddings Belgariad/Mallorean series before bed, but I've also been reading Michael Bentine's Doors of the Mind and dipping in and out of a compilation book of diary entries that encompases everyone from a village parson in the 1600's to Queen Victoria and Noel Coward.

    I've finally admitted defeat on the reconstructed mess that is JRR Tolkien's The Children of Hurin. I've been attacking it for nearly two years now and I just can't find the will to even pick it up any more.
