Okay, so I am "reading" Catch 22 (have been reading for a while), when I find the time!  BUT for those of you who like memoirs of non-fiction I suggest "Sex, drugs and Cocoa Puffs" by Chuck Klosterman OR -- Anything by Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors author).  He is my favourite author!!  Augusten literally makes me laugh out loud.. which gets awkward if you're sitting in a library or very public place.

I just started "The Scarlet Letter." I haven't read it since I was a freshman in high school.

Nana by Ai Yazawa (the series)
Kyobo has a section on English manga that I can't get enough of.... I think I'm going to try reading "boys over flowers" next.

I just finished Freedom, by Jonathan Franzen. It's about rock stardom, bird sanctuaries, infidelity, parenthood, competition, and is set in my home state, Minnesota. It was the 'it' book last year, but managed to lose all the major awards except 'most backlashed novel.' Despite all that, it's a fantastic read if you're into, or don't mind, 'literary' fiction by pretentious Americans.

Obviously, I couldn't bring all my books with me to Korea, and I feel a bit lost without them  :'( I did bring three though: One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Metamorphoses, by Ovid, and Don Quixote, by Cervantes. I think it was the right choice, because I will be rereading them for as long as I live  :D

I'm reading Me Talk Pretty One Day... It's hilarious! I'm also getting in 1984 because I haven't read it yet! If anyone knows any libraries in Daejeon with a good English section.. please post!

currently read The "Miseducation of Ross O'Carroll-Kelly" and "Roysh Here, Roysh Now… The Teenage Dirtbag Years"
great books but would only recommend them if you understand Irish slang

ROCK the legend of Castlerock!  8)
I just finished the last one- We need to talk about Ross, fantastic books for one liners! :laugh:

I totally agree. That book was an easy read but entertaining. David Sedaris is a pretty fun writer.

i'm half way done with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and just started Cat's Cradle. Zen is a really good book so far but I feel like I spend almost as much time in the dictionary haha.

I am reading this book called "Middle School English" by William Roszell. I have all three volumes and they are enthralling. I mean these books have me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what will come next.  :P
