I'm reading "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," by James Joyce and "You Shall Know Our Velocity," by Dave Eggers. I love Dave Eggers so much; I'm excited to see the new Where the Wild Things Are movie, because apparently he teamed up with Spike Jonze to make it.
As I have watched the film 100ds of times, I thought I will read the book which I have been reading ALL weekend with no stops except yesterday for a few hours, I have finished now, which is Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. 2morro I'm gonna start 2 read New Moon. Judging by the covers of the four books, I think Bella will become a vamp in Eclipse.
"A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson, I'm re-re-re-re-re-re-reading it (yeah, I really like this book.) I picked up my brother's copy of "Great Expectations" and read a few pages, but I'm not really looking for something heavy at the moment (which is slightly ironic, given that "Short History" is actually a much larger book.)
At the moment I'm reading nothing concrete, but I'm just picking up books at random so they're scattered all over the house. Those would be:
- "The Time Traveler's Wife," by Audrey Niffeneger (re-reading it for the 4th time)
- "Anna Karenin," by Tolstoy
- "The Old Man and the Sea," by Ernest Hemmingway
I love Anna Karenina! If you're looking for the best of Hemingway, I would recommend A Farewell to Arms; it is by no means his most notable novel, but I think that it's far better than recognizeable titles such as The Old Man and the Sea and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
Pharaoh, Great Expectations isn't a book to expect a fast pace from (my favorite Dickens has always been David Copperfield), but it's quite enjoyable.
I'm just finishing up the last book (so far) in the Anita Blake series, Skin Trade. Also finishing up the fifth book in the Argeneau series, A Bite to Remember. I unknowingly started with the fifth one, now I have to go back and get the previous ones XD.
