    What book are you reading right now?

    Well, summer is hear meaning there is alot more time to just sit around and read a good book. What are you reading right now?

    Last week I finished up Tom Perrotta's Little Children. Think a satire of how childish adults can be when put in certain situations.

    Started My Friend Leonard by James Frey on Sunday. Couldn't put it down. Finished all 400 pages in 2 days. The sequel to A Million Little Pieces. Despite all the controversy around this "biography" the book itself is well written and super engaging. Definatly a recommended book.

    Amazon Links:

    Little Children

    My Friend Leonard

    On my way back to the States I found a really good book called The Damage Done Twelve Years of Hell in a Bangkok Prison.

    It was written by an Australian named Warren Fellows that was arrested in Bangkok for trying to traffic heroin back to Australia. The book, as you can tell from the title, is about the twelve years of a life sentence he served in four different Thai prisons. It wasn't a hard read at all and I flew through the book but I still would recomend it to everybody. I wish I could tell the story right now. Go grab it

    And I was making my way through and original copy of The Theory and Practice of Communism but lost it. I gots to know what my enemies be thinkin

    Dear Diary,

    Zurich is great. I hate that new kid trotsky, he keeps on talking about me behind my back calling me dome head.

    I think I'll rename a city. Then everyone will love me.

    I like pansys too.

    Love Lenin
    XOXOXOXOXOXO

    The Count of Monte Cristo (full version)...

    It's taken me forever because the library lost the second volume of the book and I'm forced to read it off the internet. Reading through a computer screen is unpleasant to say the least (although it makes for a nice time waster at work).

    I'm one of those people that reads a ton of things at once, not making progress on any, but enjoying all.

    Experience and Education, John Dewey

    Mathematics for Economists, Simon & Blume - I've gotten rusty since college.

    something or other whose title I forget, Tom Robbins

    August 1914, Solzhenitsen

    Main Street, Sinclair Lewis

    Entreprenurial Economics, Alex Tabarrok - if you like Freakonomics but want something a little meatier, I'd reccomend this.

    BIKE, Powder, SI, the usuals
