I'm reading THE FAT FALLACY - The French Diet Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss, by Dr. Will Clower. A very interesting read. He trashes the American low-fat diet.

THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES, by Gary Chapman. A fascinating read!

Among others.

At the moment I am a big fan of Richard Wiseman. My favourite so far has been paranormality, but 59 seconds is pretty good too.

Finishing up "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold - pretty awesome...
And speaking of awesome, if you just want a "bathroom book" you should pick up "The Book of Awesome" it is a clever read. Simple but makes you feel good thinking about some of the things it says.

I agree, this is well written book, but applaud you being able to get through it. It was a difficult read for me because of the content. I finished it but mostly because I have to finish books I start.

Game of Thrones

<3 So much love for A Song of Ice and Fire!

Right now, I'm reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. Its my first time away from Britain (well, for anything longer than a week away) and this book reminds me of home. Its awesome.

P.S. No. I do not live in a castle ;)

I am reading "A Storm of Swords" by George R.R. Martin.  I am reading a little bit a day as I am busy.

Just started Freakonomics. The last tenant of my place left it behind so I figured I give it a go. Seems pretty interesting so far (half a chapter in :P).

Currently, I'm reading the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon. It's pretty good (I'm only on the first one), which is surprising, because I never thought I was the historical fiction/fantasy type of person...

For any wrestling fans, or former wrestling fans (like myself), I finished "Undisputed" by Chris Jericho.  It's his second book, both are entertaining reads.

I'm reading Room by Emma Donoghue at the moment.
I have mixed fellings about it.

Hi everyone,

I'm brand new to this site, and brand new to Seoul. I'm reading my favorite book again.  It's A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.  I totally recommend it to anyone who likes funny books.  It's hilarious.

Having recently visited Cambodia, I've just finished reading First they killed my father by Luong Ung, as well as the sequel, Lucky child. Both are excellent and must-reads for anyone interested in the Cambodian genocide.

Now I'm also reading, on my kindle, the entire Sherlock Holmes series by Arthur Conan Doyle. Wonderful stuff, love Holmes and Watson!

I am currently reading Raising Atlantis by Thomas Greanias. It is one of two books I brought with me so that I have something to read when I am taking a crap.
