Dostoevsky. Crime and Punishment. I read it as a kid, then picked it up again on this trip. (This time son was reading it.) Absolutely rivetting. 

I just finished Infidel (what a brave woman!) and was ready to start on Satanic Verses (S. Rushdie) before I was diverted. Next I just MUST re-read The Brothers Karamazov. Theres a reason this stuff is classical.

What about you? What's in your reading pile?

I just finished "The Old Man And The Sea" by Hemingway.

Prior to that, I read "This Side Of Paradise" by Fitzgerald.

Before those two titles, I read "The Origins And Legacies Of World War I" by D.F. Fleming

D.F. Fleming's book was a very carefully detailed examination of the actions, circumstances and inactions that led to WWI, including but not limited to the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand; the rising tide of Slavic nationalism; the inability/unwillingness of the three Imperialistic Dynasties to capitulate to their subject's desire for more autonomy and self-governance; primacy over The Balkan States and the trade routes including Adriatic and Black Sea ports on down to Constantinople.

 

I read "The Four Agreements" today, on a drive from Durham, NC to Atlanta, GA. 

I wasn't doing the driving at the time. '-)

 

Glad to hear it.

I'm still reading "Garp"

I gotta start "A Prayer for Owen Meany". Have you read that already, Robbie?

If not, maybe we can read it at the same time. That would be pretty cool.

yesterday i read The Blood-Horse magazine.

 

Today I will read The Pastel Journal and the Artists Magazine.

War and Peace by Tolstoy..
