Don't read that book, it's horrible.

It's not something you'll want to read if your a fan. And i mean a real fan.

I've recently finished Born on a Blue day by Daniel Tammat, an excellent read.

I guess you didn't know much about him, or were interested in him before picking up the book, cause you would be disgusted with it.

Finished The Plague by Albert Camus.

Picked up Ilium by Dan Simmons.

Still working on Hen's Teeth and Horse's Toes by Stephen Jay Gould.

Put down The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the Unsung Triumph of Modern Physics by Robert Oerter, along with Foundation by Isaac Asimov. With school I don't have much time for reading. I'll get back to them later.

Alright, so currently I am reading Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternack, which is an absolutely amazing story and I highly recommend. It's about a doctor in Russia and how his life deteriorates after the Russia revolution. I'm about 3/5ths of the way through and I love it.

I'm also reading a book called From Rome to Byzantium, which is about why Rome fell and why the Eastern Roman Empire stood for about 1000 years after the west fell. I'm about 1/3 of the way through this one.

The other book i'm going to start after I finish the Byzantium book is on Augustus from Rome fame and how he basically founded Europe with his Pax Romana. AHHHHHHHHH, it's so nice to read some really great books smile

really? i could never get into that one. The first part was outrageously boring, and (dare i say it?) in my opinion, bad.

I'm at Welcome to the Monkey House by Vonnegut, which is a collection of his short stories. Though i must say they are hit or miss. So far Harrison Bergeron was really good, the rest were simply ok. Definitely not as enticing as Cat's Cradle or Sirens of Titan.

Staring The Stand by Stephen King down right now. I want to read it, but it's just so darn big, and i should really get a hold of Wolves of the Calla and finish the Dark Tower series first.

and then besides some school stuff (Ovid. Not looking forward to that too much), that's about it.

the later chapters get better. The first ones though.. wow.. just.. wow

also, Ovid.

Now i have a translation of the Tales from Ovid by Ted Hughes. I'm sure in it's original language it was nice and pretty, and sounded sweet and subtle.

In English, in this translation, it's dribble. pages and pages of dribble. It's disgusting, i get no idea for what he was trying to say, and barely comprehend what's going on.

Whoever thought someone who specializes in TRANSFORMATIONS could be so badly transformed?!
