'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath. Nice light reading...not! But a very good book nonetheless

I'm currently reading Freak-onomics by Steven Levitt & Stephen Dubner. A Rogue economist explores the hidden side of everything. A must read.

Who Moved My Cheese,
Earth, Inc.
The Heart of Change Field Guide

all for school, I might add - and lighter than Global Finance (last term)!

oh and 287 pages of case studies -- reading for pleasure again will be one!

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just read Miss Peregrine's Home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs... wasn't what I had expected but it was good story worth a read, liked the visual additions he added.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I am reading my own article, mhahaha...I wish I didn't have to, I am not vain, I have to send it in. It deals with language development of trilingual children and psy impact of being brought up in yet another culture.

When I am done, I will reread Havel's stuff.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just finished Variations on Night and Day from Munif. The 3rd volume from his Cities of Salt trilogy.
It is a fascinating story of a fictitious Gulf country that mirrors Saudi Arabia.
If you are into history and political satire, this is for you. It is an eye-opener about how the dictatorship there consolidated itself over the past century.

Finished it a week ago or so, I found it pretty good. Not quite up there with his Hyperion cantos, but close. All in all Simmons is a great storyteller. But I'm reserving my final verdict until I also finish the second book, Olympos
