So, there's a "What Song Are You Currently Listening To?" thread, so why shouldn't there be a "What Book?" thread.


I just finished up Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Home by Julie Andrews. Both were excellent.

I'm about halfway through Jane Eyre, and after that I plan to pick up a book called "Must've Done Something Good".

I just finished Ender's Game and Speaker For the Dead, and I'm waiting for Xenocide to be returned to the library so I can read it. I've been waiting for more than two weeks. I could have re-read the other two books in that time.

just read 1984 for my ap english class, now i'm reading Zoo Story on sparknotes because it sucks, and we're reading A Midsummer Night's Dream in class. in my opinion, and it's not just because i don't like him, Shakespeare was one of the worst writers to ever live.

I'm reading The Brother's Karamazov by Dostoevsky, and I'm on the last couple of hundred pages. I really shouldn't be in the Pit, because I want to finish it soon so I can start on the Qu'Ran.
But it is probably the second most beautiful book I've ever read, close on the heels of Kerouac's Desolation Angels.

I haven't read a book in a while. The best book I've ever read though was To Kill A Mockingbird. I like reading short stories by authors like Edgar Allan Poe, and Ernest Hemingway though.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

those are great books, orson scott card is an amazing writer.

right now I'm reading a couple of George Orwell's books for an english paper. I'm reading animal farm, the road to wigan pier, homage to catalonia and coming up for air (ive already read 1984) and they're all great so far.

I just finished reading all of J.D. Salinger's stuff. "For Esme- With Love and Squalor", "Perfect Day for Banana Fish", and "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters" were my deathly favorite.

. . . Are you the one who's holding my precious Xenocide away from the Ottawa Public Library???

Yeah, he is a great writer. I've already read most of the series, but it was years ago and I want to read them all again. Have you read the Alvin the Maker series too?

Then why has this thread gotten 16 replies in 6 minutes?

Not everyone in the pit is a 12 year old prepubescent little boy who just wants to be loved.

I'm reading Closing Time, which is the sequel to Catch-22, which is in my opinion, the greatest book of all time.

I've just finished Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz (hey, it's a great series, ok) and the next one I read will probably be Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin. The author is autistic, and has worked out how animals perceive the world using her own perspective.

Yep, one of the best things about America. Do you like the San Francisco Renaissance too? I tend to lump them together.

The Portable Henry Rollins, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey for school (not complaining), and The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey.

I'm thinking of rereading The Silence of the Lambs, but don't know when I'll have time for it.

Next for English class we're going to read To Kill A Mockingbird and Their Eyes Were Watching God.

BTW - did anyone else have to suffer through The Awakening? Absolute torture.

Silas Marner for my Honors English class.

In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest

Until you, decide to wake up

Oh yeah, I'm a fan of both movements. I'm slightly biased towards the East coast Beats, but I do love the San Fran poets. I live right across the Bay from SF, so I've been round all their coffee shops and whatnot.
They're both probably my favorite literary groups.

Their Eyes... is one of the worst literary experiences I've ever had. It's what kicked off my Lit. teacher's feminist streak.
