    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I thought it was an interesting concept, told in a really weird way. I think I would have rather it just ended and left me hanging than trying to explain it all from a removed, academic point of view. It seemed like 2 styles were fighting each other. If it was going to be a journal/memoir account, it should have committed to that at the outset, IMHO.

    Finished reading:
    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom by James Kahn
    Not a bad novelization. A few minor scenes that weren't in the movie, or were slightly different than the movie. Overall, pretty good.

    Just started:
    Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Last Ark by Campbell Black.
    I'm reading all the Indy books in chronological order and Temple is a prequel so...

    Walk This Way...Aerosmith's autobiography.

    Pretty good book. A must read if you're a member of the blue army.

    "One Day" the cover is mildly embarrassing, and it feels... I don't know.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    This thread reminds me that I am STILL reading Insomnia by Stephen King and I have yet to pick it back up after two months and finish it. I have three chapters left and for some reason, I have been distracted with other things. Maybe since I have a four day weekend I will have the time to finish it.
    I suffer from infantile thoughts of grandiosity

    "Red Pyramid" by Rick Riodiaran (Sp?) I like it so far... I mean it's not great but it's better than some of the bad YA I've read.

    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban
