    Yeah, i definitely plan on reading it when I don't have so many other things to worry about.

    Just finished a collection of short stories by Miranda July called No One Belongs Here More than You. To be honest I'm not a huge fan of short stories,some of these were so-so, but some were very good.

    Starship Troopers is such a shitty book, and such an awesome movie.

    The book is like one long essay on how a military society would be awesome, except by military society I mean space-fascist bullshit.

    Whereas the movie makes fun of all the stupid things in the book.

    First story form Heller Catch as Catch Can is cute. Also short - Zoologist by Niccolo Ammaniti is crazy.

    Finished Life, the Universe and Everything by Douglas Adams. I told myself I would not allow myself to read while I should be studying for exams but now I've gone on a binge.

    This is my all time favorite book; absolutely hilarious and yet, so beautiful and powerful. So great.

    Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001 by Steven Coll

    It's been near the top of my "too read" stack for a while, but recent events gave me a little more incentive to start it. Coll won a Pulitzer for it too, so it should be quite good. And apparently Obama read it during the 08 election campaign.

    Since yesterday I have finished So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish by Douglas Adams (I got feck all study done).

    And I have started The Wild Things by Dave Eggars. This could go either way, seen as Where the Wild Things Are is one of those childhood favourites for me.

    I recently read Gone For Good by Harlan Coben. Excellent mystery, read it in one sitting....all 400something pages. Then I read the new Steven Tyler book....that was a trip and a half. Like....wow. It was interesting, but it was kind of....ridiculous? Not sure if that's the right word. Just bought another Harlan Coben book, but I havent started reading it yet.

    i guess it's all about the dream
