This week I read Julian Barnes' England, England and Andrea Levy's Small Island. The latter is highly recommended

Been a fan of Leo Tolstoy's classics for over 20 years now.

I had to pick a foreign writer for a report in Junior High, and he was who I picked.. gotta love them Russians. Dostoevsky's excellent, also; the Russian mindset is an interesting machine.

Had to take a break from John Brunner's Stand on Zanzibar, not because it's bad, but because it's so dense. After several weeks of bedtime reads, I was only about 250 pages into it.

So I went with Cormac McCarthy's The Road and whizzed right though it. What a book! I'm a big fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, and many of those novels contain a glimmer of hope for humanity. Well, not this one. We are truly witnessing the end of the human race (and no, that's not a spoiler).

I just started reading an awesome series called "Clifford, The Big Red Dog." Still working through the first book but I'm sure I'll finish it sometime soon.

well apparently in about 3 months I am going to have to go from NA to Cork, Ireland, then to Munich, then to Singapore, then to Japan, and then back home. So obviously I am going to need some good reading material. A friend suggested reading the Dresden Files books. Anyone agree these are good to read?
