    Yeah, Devil in the White City is really good. I am only 90 pages into the new one, but so far liking it.

    Was thinking about starting a similar thread the other day :)

    I'm currently about a quarter way through American Psycho. It's still building up to the main action but it's interesting to see the little snaps in his psyche so far. Onwards and upwards!

    The friends of Eddie Coyle. Needless to say, he doesn't have many friends...

    Just finished "The Trouble with Tom" by Michael Collins. It's an entertaining story about the transatlantic odyssey of Tom Paine's remains, and the cast of characters who were part of the journey. It's written in a conversational style, and now has me reading biographies of several of the participants.

    That book has some disturbing moments. All of Ellis's novels are a little twisted, but that one in particular really pushes you out of your comfort zone. Like most books it is much better than the movie.

    Just started American History Revised by Seymour Morris. Also reading the latest in the Nightside Series by Simon R. Green. Everything will get put down when Butcher finally releases the next Dresden novel though.

    I spent so many years reading ultra heavy academic works, I do so enjoy my popcorn novels these days.

    Just came home from an annual camping trip and I finished Jonathan Tropper's How to Talk to a Widower in under three days. He's one of my favorite authors now that my girlfriend has gotten me into his books.

    At the Earth's Core, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. An e-book from Manybooks.net (or Project Gutenberg).

    Free download. A classic.

    I know what you mean. Sometimes I read two or three books at a time just to switch it up.

    Sounds like you are similar to me and will refuse to stop reading a book once you've started no matter how trying it may be :)

    I have done similar things, I started a book only to read a few pages and put it down then several months later pick it up a start reading till finished. I hate to not finish reading a book. Right now I'm not reading anything at the time, but do have several books waiting for a first time read.

    I am glad that I am not the only one who does that.

    I am tearing through various Warhammer 40K novels recently. Currently on 'The Ultramarines Omnibus' by Graham Mcneill. Excellent stuff. I'll be back to the Dan Abnett Gaunts Ghosts series after finishing.

    I'm about 1/2 way thru Decision Points by George Bush..... Ehhh the jury is still out. It jumps around quite a bit rather than in a timeline type of order.
