    Default Read any good books lately?

    I read about a 500 page novel every day.

    What have you read lately? What did you think of it? Any books you're looking forward to, preferably without pictures?

    For example they've got Peace Talks by Jim Butcher coming this summer... I've been waiting five YEARS for that one.

    Oh and the new David Wong book Zoey Punches the Future...

    Too much verbose trash and not enough profundity in books lately. Unless, in my opinion, it's science-fiction!

    I don't do as much reading as I would like. But not too long ago, I read Accidental Presidents by Jared Cohen. If you are a history buff, I totally recommend it. It's about the eight Vice-Presidents who became President when their predecessor died in office.

    I just purchased The System: Who Rigged it, How We Fix It by Robert Reich. He's one of the few economists I respect because he uses common sense rather than unsupported assumptions and ideology. I will start reading it over the weekend.

    The books I have finished:
    The Handmaid's tale: I enjoyed it as my favorite genre is dystopian novels and it gave an interesting premise. I'm not really big on 3rd way feminism however, so at times it was differcult to ignore the political undertone.

    1984: I had a little bit of trouble following the story line as it seemed a bit repetative to me. That being said, it was pretty good. The concept of "wrong think" was relatively interesting to me in our current political climate. Also a dystopian novel. Slavery is freedom. Freedom is slavery.

    Me before you: Pretty decent, it held my attention. It makes you feel feelings. However, I did have an issue with them using the poor girl/rich guy premise. Pretty easy to romantacize a billionare. My main issue with that is that being a parapalegic isn't romantic, it isnt sexy. Theres a lot of messiness involved in it. A lot of mental anquish. I know that the writer tries to convey that through Will's decesions but I still think that its an harmful on going trend to romantacize terminal illnesses and disabilities. Also see: The fault in our stars.
