Any readers here?
« on: Sat, 15 December 2007, 02:49:40 »
I've asked about girls and horror movies is this part of the board before, so now it's time to find out if any of you read books.

I am on some 50s lit kick from hell as of late. I am way into the beats, and Jack Kerouac is my favorite author. I listen to audio books at work and read real books out loud to my child. I don't take lit classes just so I can pick what I read.

Chime in if you read and we can discuss books!

Did you read iWaz? it was really good. Any Apple or computer fan needs to read this book.

I never got into fantasy books, but if you recomend one I may give it a try.

For YOU, I definitely recommend Her Majesty's Wizard.

I quite enjoyed that book all three times that I read it.  :)

Gene Wolfe is supposedly the greatest living American author... but because he writes fantasy he's overlooked by the mainstream litcrit.  I've only read one of his books. It's his first or second novel, and it's not that well-known, but it impressed me a hell of a lot. So much so, that I missed my trainstop on the way to work.

Just started House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. No spoilers please, but did anyone read this?
