"Under the Net" by Iris Murdoch. It's quite brilliant and funny. It's about a lazy writer who gets kicked out by his girlfriend and consequently experiences fantastic and quite ridiculous adventures as he looks for a new place to bum around.

50 Shades Of Grey. Like the rest of the female population.

 

Have you read the part where they have sex yet??

 

Wait, that book is about sex? I thought it was about a colorblind guy :?

I'm reading A Dance with Dragons after a long and angonizing wait to get it from my local library. It is very good so far and I can't wait to read the rest of its 900 pages (about 700 to go)

I just finished "The Egg Said Nothing" and was shocked at how great it was. It's a book in the bizarro genre, so it's very absurd. Think "John Dies at the End". I wholly recommend this book if you want an amusing read involving time travel and romance and not knowing what's going to happen next.

 

I'm also finishing up "Ready Play One" for the second time. I saw it in a bookstore the other day and grabbed it because it's a decent story. It's amusing and softly cyberpunk. It's not as amazing as everyone says it is because it's really just a nostalgia circljerk with a little story thrown in. But I've read worse.

 

I grabbed "The Old Man's War" in the humble book bundle. I finished that and am currently halfway through the third book of the series. It's a pretty good series and I like the characters in them. I intend to finish off the series and read the complementary universe books when I get to it.

 

Since I finished "The Egg Said Nothing", I started reading "Rampaging [bleep]ers of Everything on the Crazy Shitting Planet of the Vomit Atmosphere". I'm pretty sure the censor is going to break the link to Amazon, but meh... It's a collection of 3 bizarro stories and the first one looks pretty good. Amazon says the stories are satire, so I'm sure I'm going to love them.

 

Ok, I think that's all the books I'm reading/have read in the last couple days... I'll head out after leaving my favorite quote from "The Egg Said Nothing".

 

They dream their little dreams, toss and turn in sweaty sheets, and we'll be awake. Do you realize the effect that will have on us? Instead of air, we'll be breathing dreams.

You know, I bought this book and was really really looking forward to reading it, but now... :/

Go ahead and read it still. It's a fun read, especially if you grew up in/near that time period, it just won't have much lasting power because of its references.

It's kind of like the Scary Movies. They're funny, but since they have very specific references, they won't age well.

Not yet. I read the first 30 or so pages and nothing has really happened yet. I will make an effort to finish reading it one day.

Finished halo: thursday war. Was great and some great potential spoilers for halo's 4-6. Gonna need to wait till next pay check to get the game though.

 

Think i'll start Pariah: ravenor vs eisenhorn from warhammer 40k next.

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

I just finished reading Doomed by Tracy Deebs. It was FREAKING AMAZING. Awesome book for gamers who like a bit of sci-fi apocalypse adventure.

Now I'm reading Prophecy by Ellen Oh. I've only just started it, but so far I'm a little unsure... but only because I'm not sure I'm in the mood for high fantasy right now.

Finished reading a book called Alice In Zombieland - I forget the author right now, though. It was seriously good, and I cant wait for the next book in the series.

 

Ohh by Gena Showalter. I've been considering reading that for a while now. :P I've heard good and bad things about it. From what I gather, as long as you accept that it's not really a cold-blooded-killing zombie Alice in Wonderland retelling, you'll really enjoy it. I want to read it at some point. :P

 

And the cover... soooo pretty!
