    Re: What book are you reading?

    Unfortunately I have problems reading books so I don't read often. But my girlfriend reads to me on the phone or when we are together. Its the only way it works for me. Anyway the book she is currently reading to me is the Phantom Tollbooth. Its a childhood favorite that I haven't read in ages. It reminds me of how life can really be.

    Re: What book are you reading?

    I'm currently rereading both 'Freakonomics' for my Univ class and 'Sister of the Dead', from the earlier series I mentioned.

    Freak is an interesting read about a "rogue economist explores the hidden side of everything". Basically it's a economist linking unlikely pairs together (i.e. KKK and Real-Estate Agents, School teachers and Sumo wrestlers) as well answering questions such as "What makes a Perfect Parent?" "Where did all the Criminals Go?" and "Does Your Name really Matter?" You might not agree with his logic (my English teacher sure didn't for the abortion issue ), but it does make you think. Recommended to anyone, as it's an easy read -- not too long, the words on the page are pretty big, and he explains in layman's terms (IMO).

    I picked up Sister because after I read the next two Ichirou novels the next book in the Noble Dead series shall be in paperback, so I'd like to refresh my memory on what happened last. If you tried and liked the first two books, you'd probably like this as well (And where as the first two books had similar structures, this one is a little different because they're not hunting).

    Right now, I am reading two books. I am reading At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks. It's good so far but I haven't become addicted to it yet but I'm sure I will. I love his books! I am also reading The Gold-Bug and Other Tales by Edgar Allen Poe for my English Honors class. That one is pretty good so far. The writing is very descriptive and I love it! It definitely has a tone of sadness to it though.

    It is a good book, but very sad. I hate holocaust books. They take me a long time to read cuz I cry the whole time. Another book that did this was David Peltzers "A child called it", so sad.
