    I think I started this thread on bucknuts the day I was banned.

    The Safety of Objects by A.M. Homes. It's sort of a one or two-day read though.

    Have Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley, The Life of Pi by Yann Martel (this would be the second attempt at that one), and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath stacked on the table here to grab next.

    All I know is that the queue of things I want to read grows faster than the pile that I've finished reading.

    Think that might be why you were banned? Suggesting that there might be things to read that didn't involve a premium membership.

    Was it really bad to have mentioned that I was reading Jon Anderson's famous bio on Che Guevara?

    Well Tib, at least it wasn't Mein Kempf.

    I am reading "Rubicon" by Steven Saylor.

    Resurrected: Shroud's Message Revealed 2,000 Years Later. By Gilbert Lavoie.

    Short book my wife has been suggesting I should read. I am planning on tracking down some of those that were suggested in the other thread.

    The Iliad: by Homer
    I'm only a couple of pages into it. It'll be awhile before I get to 'The Odyssey': by Homer.

    I just got done reading "Motherless Brooklyn" by Jonathan Lethem, a humorous "detective" story where the antagonist has Tourettes. It was hilarious! Now I'm trying to decide whether to read Hillary Clinton's "Living History" or Jonathan Franzen's "How to Be Alone." (Some of you right wingers would probably suggest that the way to "be alone" is to read Hillary's book :) )

    Read The ClinTon Wars instead. I just bought it and will tackle it after finishing JFK.

    Last night I started "Moneyball" about the Oakland A's and how they've done more with less than the big payroll teams. Pretty good so far, especially as I'm not a real baseball fan.

    Tibor, The Clinton Wars is on my list, as well as Bob Woodward's new book. So many books, so little time! I read nonfiction for a living (I'm an editor at MIT Press), so I like to read fiction in my spare time. These books are exceptions, though.

    To further enhance my reputation as a conservative blowhard, "Right Reason" by William F. Buckley Jr.
  15. DEBuckeye

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I'm reading "Violets are Blue" by James Patterson. I just finished "The Corrections" by Jonathan Franzen, and I wanted something mindless to read for a little while.

    Grad- "What it Means to be a Buckeye" is a great book. I plan on re-reading it just before football season to get me even more jacked up.
