Whatcha reading?

Right now, I'm all Faulkner all the time. I'm reading The Sound and The Fury(for the third time) for a class, Sanctuary in my free time, and Faulkner in the University in my free free time.

Embarrassingly... I mostly read manga or other kinda niche books. I have read Naruto since I was 10 years old so I still keep up with it. I love One Piece... I've been reading 20th Century Boys... I also asked for the Halo: Fall Of Reach book for xmas... oooooops I sound like I'm 12 but I'm 21...

Among a lot of other things, I'm reading The Essential Kabbalah by Daniel C. Matt, Fear of Flying by Erika Jong, The Mothman Prophecies by John A. Keel... but don't think I'm that smart, I read too many and half-finish them :/

Just finished the Road by Cormac McCarthy, it was amazing.

I'm currently in in the middle of The Enormous Room by E. E. Cummings. I have to say, he is my favorite poet, but I'm not really liking this book so much. It is remarkably boring and forgettable. I've really been hoping that I'm just missing something, or the book has a sudden turn soon, but I lost hope and haven't touched the book in a few months now.

Other than that, I really dug I Hope They Server Beer In Hell and The Bell Jar. And One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is the best book I've ever read in my life. Go read it!

I really like e.e. cummings as well but Bukowski is definitely my favourite poet! I LOVE Tucker Max. Those stories are HI-fucking-LARIOUS! I just read Jenna Jameson's biography which was pretty eye opening and action packed, no word of a lie. Ron Jeremy's biography is really good as well, he's a VERY funny person.

I also read some trashy teen lit about private schools. One series called "Private" and one called "Privileged" which is a spin off of Private. They are so trashy I don't even read the description I just read the dialogue.

One of my favourite books ever is called "The View From Saturday". Has anyone ever read it?

I cant read.

Well actually I have yet to find a book that kept my attention long enough to finish, closest were Angels and Demons, the 1st Harry Potter, and The Watchmen graphic novel.

I can never get into those joke books like Abraham Lincoln or Pride Prejudice and Zombies. The novelty wears off for me after a chapter and then I just notice terrible writing.
