Might start reading this soon, has anyone read it? I'm deciding between this or another Easton-Ellis novel.

all the president's men is good but it's more about journalism than watergate. if you want a great book about nixon i recommend boys on the bus, the selling of the president, nixonland or, of course, fear and loathing in '72. nixonland is especially readable and really well researched. the author, rick perlstein, lives in chicago and had lunch with me once. really nice guy.

This book is entertaining, the main characters a jerk and stubborn as fuck. Funny, but read this book with a grain of salt. It's filled with Ann Rand's egotistical bullshit.



Pretty heavy themes in this book.



Sure everyone knows this and has either read the book or seen the film but it's worth mentioning.

Finished this last week, loved it.


Almost done this,



And when I'm at home I read this kus its too big to carry around. Check out the comments/reviews for this shit http://www.amazon.com/Science-Sanity-Introduction-Non-Aristotelian-International/dp/0937298018

Quote
I first read this book over 25 years ago, and it stunned me. Only a fool or the bitterest cynic could come away from this book unchanged. Whether or not you agree with all or even some of its premises and conclusions, Science and Sanity will make you keenly aware of language, psychology, and communication in all aspects of your life. You will realize how little most people know or understand about the deep and complex role language plays at home and on the world stage. This book will give you a different platform to stand on. Yes, it is a difficult book to read, but like another difficult book, Samuel Hahnemann's timeless Organon of the Medical Art, it rewards the patient and thoughtful reader in countless subtle ways over the course of time. I'd rate this book in my top ten books of a lifetime spent reading everything under the sun.

Every Adrian Mole is so good.  she is supposed to be writing one more.  i hope she does as the last one kind of ended in a mild cliff hanger.

Happy Bloomsday everybody! I'm finishing up "Ada, or Ardor: A Family Chronicle" by Vladimir Nabokov tonight and picking up "Finnegans Wake" after a two year hiatus. Today seemed like the best day to restart it. I've read the first section of it and I'm trying to get as much finished before school starts again in September.

Got it as a birthday gift the other day and I have about 50 pages left, it's good.

Pretty decent book. Its strange how some of the interactions in American Psycho between Patrick Bateman, his mom, and his main female are almost verbatim from Clay's conversations in Less Than Zero. American Psycho is in definitely in my top 5 books so far. Don't know if i should read his other books?? ATM? Kilgore?

I'd read Rules of Attraction, it's probably my favorite thing I've read from him so far. Isn't there a sequel to Less Than Zero coming out this month?

This book is hilarious. If you can't afford the book check out the website/twitter, but the book ties all the quotes together

If you liked "Football Factory"  then you should check out this one:

This is hard an intellectual read, but it's hard to find a book that makes you laugh out loud when reading it and this one did a good job of it or me. It is to literature what Dali is to painting.

woah...first time in this thread, about to post this very book and it's on this page...small world.  i'm just getting into vonnegut, and this is my favorite so far.  i read slapstick right before, and sirens years back in school.  just started jailbird...seems like a slower read, but good so far nonetheless.

i need some advice on what (vonnegut) to read next, and i don't like reading reviews because they ruin books for me.  anybody have any suggestions?
