What are you reading? / What did you read last?

I'm done reading Solipsist by Henry Rollins. It's okay, not your everyday read. Has anyone else read it?

Henry is the Champ... I've never read any of his books, but have enjoyed his spoken word on CD and in person.

Do you ever get down on your knees and thank God that you know me and have access to my dementia?

Re: What are you reading? / What did you read last?

I'm working my way through America: The Last Best Hope by Wm. Bennett. It's kind of a cursory treatment of American history, and leaves me with more questions than it answers. But it's a good overview. Previously, I read a book called Chechnya by...I forget who. Interesting, but slow going for me due to all of the unfamiliar pronunciations. I had to really focus to make it through that one.

I am re-reading the wheel of time series.

Also reading the Obsidian Trilogy.

Yea his stuff are definitely good. Let me know if you want me to mail you a couple of his books to read and you can send them back once you're done.

@ gjcab09
Have you read Zinn's A People's History of The United States? Good stuff.

@ Magicseven
I haven't read any of them. Are they good?

Seyed.

IMHO the Wheel of time series is probably one of the best fantasy series ever written.

No, although I enjoy the topic, I've really got to work to make it through this kind of thing. Once I finish Bennett, I'll be looking for another to sink my teeth into.

Re: What are you reading? / What did you read last?

I just finished Black Widow and Dead Silence by Randy Wayne White while in Key West. I'm currently reading Fuzzy Navel by J.A. Konrath. I also have started on A Voyage Long and Strange: On the Trail of Vikings, Conquistadors, Lost Colonists, and Other Adventurers in Early America by Tony Horwitz and am thoroughly enjoying it.

My book here at work is Stuff White People Like. Hilarious observations and comments.
