I had to read Frankenstein way back in 7th grade... it was interesting at times, but oh so confusing.
Right now I'm reading Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie, one of my favorite authors. The way he intertwines countless themes and symbols and somehow it all makes sense.... I'm so jealous of his talent. I would highly recommend anything by him for people looking for an entertaining, yet highly intellectual read.
Well right now, I don't get to read for pleasure. I'm taking an English lit class called Views of Women from Fiction to Film. Right now we are reading Jane Austen's Emma and soon we will be reading Orlando by Vriginia Wolff. The premise of the class is to discuss how well these books were adapted to the silver screen. It's good times!!!
I got two books this past Christmas and right now I'm reading one of them (which I'm about half way through: The Da Vinci Code (Illustrated Edition)
The next book I'm gonna read is the other one I got as a gift: State of Fear by Michael Crichton
I'm also reading: Business Law
Advertising and Promotion
Yup, the joys of being a full time Business Administration student!
Now reading the Wonderful World of Disney History of Television,
and F.D.R'S Secret War.

Currently on the counter in my...uh..."library" is Stalking the Wild Pendulum by Itzhak Bentov and Living Budda, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh. As a reward for staying for 10 years at the hospital I work at I was given $200 in gift certificates to where ever I wanted. I got $100 to Barnes and Noble and $100 to Borders. Next in my reading que will be several more of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett, Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, Dune: The Machine Crusade (although I'll probably wait for the 3rd to hit paperback before I actually start those), and Comfortable with Uncertainty by Pema Chodron.
