So, what is everyone reading right now?

After all, this is the reading room. It needs a thread like this!

Please tell us its title, author, and what you think of it!

Schoolish: "The Anatomy of Satire", Gilbert Highet, Princeton, 1967. :D, and John Clarke, The Howard Miracles. God John Clarke is an absolute genius.

Non-schoolish: picked up a copy of Oliver Twist/Great Expectations/ A Christmas Carol from a nearby shelf for an idle read, so it appears to be Dickens time.

Finished George Eliot's Middlemarch last night... left me sobbing. I hate the day/s after you finish a really powerful book, because I generally need to read before going to bed at night, and I don't like to start a fresh book when my mind's still turning over the previous one. So I'll spend the next few nights flicking through already read pages of Middlemarch and reminiscing before I can bring myself to start another book...

I know, but like I said, this is the reading room! Plus the one in Entertainment is like 29 pages long....

Btw, I'm reading Frankenstein too. The introduction in my book takes upapprox. 1/3 of it and it's really boring me!

I'm also reading LotR and Dragon of Autumn Twilight, the first book in Dragonlance Chronicles.

just finished reading "A child called 'it'" by Dave Pelzer, has anyone else read it?
Great book, a tear-jerker for the girlies, and a powerful memoir of one kid's survival for the guys...
Some of the stuff is truly horrible and sometimes quite graphic, don't read if u r queasy.
I'm about to start reading the sequel, "The Lost Boy".
These are nice, short books, easy to read, for if u like to read on the bus/train etc.

I've read all of the Pelzer books (and I didn't cry - no stereotyping me thank you!)

I'm currently reading "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest", and also this book called "My Language is Me", a non-fiction written by the therapist of this teenager with schizophrenia recording six years of his treatment.
