"the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" Mark Haddon.  Very funny, and I reccomend it to anyone who likes lit fiction and minds.

The First Man In Rome - Colleen McCullough
rereading
This series is my guilty little pleasure
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

Dante

Just finished Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. Really great book, though a little abrupt with the ending.

(By the way, how's the board doing? It's definitely been a while since I've been here.)

Still reading Middlesex--it's pretty good.  About a guy who was born androgynous.

Oddly, I was thinking about you the other day and wondering where you'd been.  Welcome back.

Thanks. (I'm not sure how long its been since I've been here. I've been somewhat more busy lately, and right around now things are cooling off, so I figured it would be good to come back.)

I just started this.  It's really good so far.

I was feeling a lack of cyberpunk in my recent literary diet, so a B&N gift card from the mother unit of my Fiance' was spent entirely on William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Bruce Sterling.

Also, finished re-reading "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde
