What is everyone reading atm ?

I'll start :

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand ( reading for the 3rd time it's absolutely brilliant)
and

the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman ( also a work of art ) ;)

Anyone else ?

I don't think I've read an entire book in the last 5 years. Sad hey? I just don't enjoy reading. I wonder what that says about my mental ability.

Reading 'Lost for Words' by John humphreys. His opinion about mangling of english language and he picks on teenagers, politicians, business-speak and so on. His sense of humour also peeks through, one cant help but chuckle sometimes. See the start of book e.g.

"So just how mega is this then? A book on English. Never really meant to do it. No way. Then I'm like with my publisher? She's like yeah, John, everyone gets really uptight about the gash way we speak now. We need something fly, yeah? Like totally awesome? And I'm so like no way... I'm up to here with stuff? And she's like, tell me about it. But she blags me and we do a deal and I'm cool and she's like, Bless! Know what I mean?

You probably do know what I meant. It might have been a bit of a struggle but I dare say you will have got the meaning of that hideous paragraph in the end....If you were fifteen years old you'd have had no problem - ...."

Hmmm getting some ideas for what to read next - Lost for Words ' sounds great and so does the Clarkson book.

Oh,anyone read Freakonomics ? ( nonfiction ) An irreverent and very telling look at the economics of life in the real world ...by an off the wall but brilliant economist...

I've just finished "The Power of One" by Bryce Courtenay ... gives you alot to think about how the old days was in SA.

I also love all of Wilbur Smith's books ... reread them all the time:cool:
