Tom Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons, and I'm having a hard time believing that the title character would be so sheltered.

I finally finished Choke after 2 months of reading and I can say it's argueably the second best book I've ever read. (the first being Sideways Stories from Wayside School).

I just started Invisible Monsters. Hopefully it's as entertaining as Choke.

Invisible Monsters is sort of a frustrating read, but it certainly pays off in the end.

I just started Slaughterhouse Five.

And fuck yeah Sideways Stories From Wayside School emoticon

I read the books in my elementary school, where I was the only kid smart enough to enjoy them (or books in general, for that matter), and in all the time since then I've only met three people who remembered the series.

That was a great read when I was in elementary school.

I hope that's true. I'm on the third chapter and so far i've came to the conclusion that it doesn't make any sense and it's boring as hell.

i think all of chuck p's books are boring as hell.

i haven't read the latest short story one. i might as i've heard that he has finally gotten away from telling the same story over and over again.

maybe.

The first time I read it I gave up on page 80 or so because I was bored shitless, but over the summer I tried again, made my way through, and read the last 150 pages in one sitting.

It's not a bad book, but since the pieces dont fall together until about halfway through it's like a chore to try to enjoy it until then. I imagine it's way better the second time around.

"Founding Bothers" by Joseph J. Ellis.

I heartily recommend this book to history enthusiasts. The events it talks about aren't anything new, but it provides interesting insights into the character of the American founding fathers.

I'm reading Red Mars. It's...O.K., at the least

I'm just into the 3rd part,
and it mostly seems like a Soap Opera, only, in space/on Mars. :/
I'll still read through it, though

World War Z.

I just got this book yesterday and I can't put it down. I'm only a hundred or so pages in but I would say the most enjoyable part of the book so far was when Larry the Cable guy got blown up by a grenade.
