    I just finished Watchmen by Alan Moore. I read it just in case I go to see the movie so I wouldn't waste time trying to figure out which character is who, but I really enjoyed the novel. It's smart and thought-provoking.

    Thanks for the recommendation, sput.. off to update my Amazon wishlist. On another note, a book store a few blocks from campus is going out of business and having a huge sale.. I might go blow my money there sometime this week.

    I just finished Stori Telling....seriously!!! Read it in about 2 days. Entertaining.

    I also just read Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris.

    Next up, don't know. I have about 10 books next to my nightstand.

    A trashy romance a co worker gave me. The story is just well cheesy but the sex is great!

    Not quite finished with 'The Jungle' yet, but my history professor probably didn't anticipate me reading 3/4ths of it a month before the date we are supposed to have it read by.. so I put it down and started reading 'The Brothers Karamazov' by Dostoevsky.. I read 'Crime and Punishment' a few years back and thoroughly enjoyed it.. hope this one is good as well.

    Love Dostoevsky and any other Russian writer. But finish the Jungle...it's excellent.

    haha I read that too! I gave it to my sister and she had to stop because she stayed up all night reading it. A very enjoyable read, complete with a wicked (not-so-step) mother.

    I finally finished it Wednesday night... I found the ending to be a 30-page endorsement for socialism, which was a change of pace since 90% of the book focused on the meat packing industry and the impermanence of financial stability in early 20th century Chicago... but I can see how it was building up to that.

    Picked up 'Brothers Karamazov' and even had a nice chat with a cute guy on the bus about Dostoevsky.. it pays to read Russian literature

    Lucky you! I haven't had a good chat with a cute stranger over a book in ages.

    The Reader - Bernhard Schlink

    I found it to be too predictable, since I figured out Hanna's "secret" right away. Maybe this will be a case of the movie being better than the book.

    it's not really about the secret. you're supposed to find out. IMO at least that's not the point.
