  • Whacha reading?

    So, whacha reading? On the train, on the pot, in bed when the missus is asleep, at work...whatever. What you read these days?

    Me, I'm simultaniously reading all of these:
    Oe Kenzaburo-空の怪物アグイー
    Earl Miner-Comparative Poetics (yawn...)
    David Kaplan, Alec Dubro-Yakuza: Japan's Criminal Underground
    I also have a Playboy in my desk drawer that I flip through. It's so nice, you know, to look at. The articles, I mean. The articles.

    And you?

      The last books I read were Jarhead, Eragon, Memoirs of a Geisha, and whiteout. Jarhead and Memoirs were both excellent. Eragon is fun in a trite, holy-crap-this-is-the-same-story-as-star-wars, kind of way. White out was a sub-par suspense. Oh, I just remembered State of Fear. Excellent read and full of facts against global warming.

          "What's going on in there: How the mind and brain develop in the first five years of life." By Lise Eliot.

          Excellent book, fairly accessible and highly recommended to all you parents out there.

          (Booker, are you really reading all those books, or are you trying to impress us again? Don't worry, we like you, you're a nice, clever guy. You post (mostly) decent threads too. Stop trying so hard )

                  How many books are you reading??

                  What is this? Some kind of intellectual pissing contest?

                  Why can't anyone read one book at a time?

                  Quality over Quantity. Every time.

                    Damn right it is. Haven't you seen my 3 meter pencil mark on the toilet wall of the British Library?

                      And from a sitting position? Impressive.

                      What were you reading at the time?

                        An article in 'Soviet Kinema Monthly'

                        "Edvonovich Obsplowsky and the Politics of Discontent" if I remember correctly.

                          Aah, "The Politics of Discontent". An excellent toilet read.
                          I usually go for something that can double up as botty-wipe. Say, something 20th century British, perhaps.

                            You'll have the 'scat-gang' on this thread soon if you mention bottoms and toilets.

                              Yes, to be avoided at all costs.

                              Sorry, good thread, don't want to sabotage it.

                              Let's get back on track.

                              I'm reading 5 books at the moment. Any takers?
