"Think Global, Fear Local: Sex, Violence and Anxiety in Contemporary Japan" by David Leheny. I'm not even in school anymore, yet I need to have a constant fix of analytical international politics.

Free Lunch by David Smith.
I bought it on recommendation from the lecturer of my business and economics module at uni (who claimed it made business and economics interesting and easy to understand) but never actually got around to reading it while I was still there and studying :P

Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice
I'm slowly reading my way through the vampire chronicles.

Camille by Alexandre Dumas
I couldn't resist a book with nice binding and I think I saw the movie at some point during my life.

JPod by Douglas Coupland
I'm 3/4 of the way through it and I've thoroughly enjoyed it so far. It does take a certain sense of humor in order to fully appreciate though. :D

I prefer not to rodomontade about the literature I read because my tastes have little to do with how I want to be perceived by others (unlike most other quasi-intellectuals.) For example most people in this thread only read so they appear smart to others. I find this despicable.

However, here is a list of books I am currently reading.

A Nonparametric Multidimensional IRT Approach with Applications to Ability Estimation and Test Bias

Encyclopedia of Phenomenology

Superstring Theory: The DNA of Reality

The Essential Husserl: Basic Writings in Transcendental Phenomenology (Studies in Continental Thought)

Analysis of Mind

Multivariable Calculus (James Stewart)

The Architecture of Happiness


So there you go. On average, I finish 1 book every three days and I am usually reading 5 to 7 books at once. I plan on reading more math textbooks and philosophy books next. I also enjoy advanced engineering textbooks.


Pot, kettle, etc.

Finished some of the books I posted earlier, still reading some of them. Also started Steve Martin's "Pleasure of My Company" - better than "Shopgirl" so far. D:

For my humanities class we had to read parts of Dante's "Divine Comedy". I really enjoyed it so I'm slowly reading the entire thing. I also am nearly done with "Moon of the Spider" part of the Diablo book series.

I'm reading Stephen King's The Dark Tower series now. The books aren't that good, though, so I'm moving slowly.

Aw, haha. I know the feeling. I tried to read those too once on request from a friend but I couldn't make it through the first one. :(

Right now I'm reading The Sword of Shannara.
