Just started House of Leaves, and a book of essays called Bad Girls and Sick Boys.

My wife read House of Leaves last year. She enjoyed it.

I'm still continuing my Dark Tower trek. Currently about 300 pages into the Wizard and the Glass. I'll have it finished in a couple of days and then it's anxious anticipation until the Wolves of Calla comes out.

Oh, and I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It's real history and other interesting things that are mostly to taboo to be discussed.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

I've been reading a few entries in "The New Biographical Dictionary of Film" by David Thomson, before falling asleep every night.

Quote from: Jeremy BlackmanOctober 7...


Can't wait  :yabbse-thumbup:
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

Yeah, I've eyed that one up at the bookstore a couple of times. But with it being a massive 848 pages, I could never picture myself having enough time to get through it.

So you give it a definite thumbs-up, Mac?

RegularKarate

I don't have cash for a new book and no TX DL for a library card, so I'm re-reading Clockwork Orange slowly (it's so short) until next paycheck, at which point, I will purchase one of Chuck's books because I haven't read any and need to get on this bandwagon fast.
Once I'm done with that, I should have time to read the new version of the Gunslinger and re-read the rest of the series (minus Wizard and the Glass, but just because I don't like that one as a part of the series) just in time to pick the new one.
After that, if I like the Chuck book I select (I think I'll go with Survivor, seems to be a favorite), I think I'm gonna read something really oldschool... like Bram Stoker's Dracula... don't know... I have a huge list of books I need to read, the list, of course gets larger faster than I can read.

Teen Wolf

I just finished a book of collected reviews by Pauline Kael called I Lost It At The Movies. Right now I'm reading a biography of the Spanish architect Gaudi. Next up is a biography of Yukio Mishima, who was a revered writer and master swordsman.

I just listened to the latest audioblog from Chuck's Diary tour, which may make a difference to the way you read him. It shouldn't, but oh, how it will. Juicy for all the FC lovers.
