by Geoff Dyer
I'm reading this for school. It's one of those that I probably wouldn't have picked up if left to my own devices, but am definitely enjoying. To give you an idea of what the book is like, here's a quote concerning Dyer's girlfriend:
"We already had our shared motto, almost shared, more accurately, because whereas Laura's version was 'Together Forever' mine was 'Together Whenever'. Laura liked the idea of us sticking together 'through thick and thin' whereas I opted for the more pessimistic 'through thin and thinner'" (10.)
It is quite entertaining.
The Zen of Listening
by Rebecca Z. Shafir
Another one for school. I mostly like it, but it does get on my nerves at times, especially when Shafir says that we have things harder in this day and age than any previous generations did.
by James Clavell
I haven't touched this book in several months, but I'm not willing to take it off of my "currently reading" list yet! I'll get back to it...eventually...maybe during winter break...
