    A book of some short stories by Guy de Maupassant... It's funny how about every second of his stories revolves around hookers :>

    Ben Elton - Stark. The world is going to die and the richest people in the world are conspiring this big plan because they know doomsday is coming... and who will save the world? a small group of hippies who have no clue. Hilarious.
    Sara Douglass - The Nameless Day. Deamons rising up from hell style book. Tacky fantasy fiction.
    Dostoyevsky - Crime and Punishment. Haven't read much because I'm trying to finish some other books first.
    Neal Stephenson - Zodiac. Good so far.
    Stephen Donaldson - The Chronicles of Thomas Coventant the unbeliever.

    I read way too many books at the same time.

    A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
    Kong Jesus by Robert Graves (a translation of his work King Jesus)

    A Portrait, hmm I've only read about 50 or so pages so far. It was my mom's backwards idea of a good christmas gift. Insanely boring, the only thing worth reading so far was about the argument on Catholicism in the Irish Republican movement.

    Kong Jesus is very good. It came out before the Da Vinci code, and is wonderfully detailed. It's even gone to explain certain things about theology, like that originally the Jewish God Jahve, had two mistresses, they formed a holy trinity. The book is based on the fact that Jesus is the song of King Antipater, who was son of King Herodes. And that Mary, (Miryam) was in the line of David. Joseph comes in as a person who is taking care of Mary after Antipater's execution.

    All good fascinating stuff, worth the read.

    I'm reading 1984 by George Orwell (for the third time) because I'm doing it for A level and also about 4 books about Spain in the 16th Century, also for A level. I don't have time to read as much/what I want because of school.

    You don't have bad luck. The reason bad things happen to you is because you're a dumbass.

    This is more the "things I'm supposed to be reading", but anyway...

    Popular Music from Vittula by Mikael Niemi - I got it for Christmas and definitely want to read it again.

    Some short stories by Tsehov - Again, a Christmas present.

    Porno by Irvine Welsh - Re-read in Finnish, again, a Christmas present.
    and no wonder hearts and minds have been won
