I'm actually doing the incredibly couragous (and confusing) thing of attempting two books at the same time. I have some sort of affliction when I buy literature that I inundate myself with far too much at one time. Anyways... I'm about 3/4 of the way through Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction (a book that will make you hate the opposite sex for no real reason) and Margaret Atwoods' Oryx and Crake... a post-apocolyptic novel that explores the flaws in humankind as a whole. Blarg... what a dry splat of drivel, I swear its much more interesting than that crap I described it with. Oh well.

I picked up a used copy of Robert Fagles' translation of the Odyssey three days ago, and I read it straight through! It's the best translation of Homer I've ever read, in terms of readability. Seriously, if you've ever wanted to read it, find Fagles' translation; the ones we had to read in school were awful.

Gritzy, I've never read Oryx and Crake but I like Margaret Atwood...it sounds good! I'll put it on my list.

Aselune, how are you liking that MLA handbook? Don't worry...if you're like everybody else, you'll manage to find the one situation that they don't cover in the citations guide...

Aw, you'll do fine! Just write the essay first (or some semblance of a first draft) and then find supporting material. Find some that support your position, and a couple to argue against, then redraft a few more times to make sure it's all coherent. That's the easiest way to do them!

The environmental activist who harasses me at work gave me something interesting to read. It's most certainly "different".

The funny papers. Every day, Every month. I do read from other sources, but the daily funnies are the most dependable, consistant, and inspiring of anything in print. What a better way to start they day? Snoopy, Hagar, Otto? Who better to share the morning coffee with? Evenings can go to Doyle and Lovecraft.

What a great thread. Too bad it dropped away. I am forcing myself to read ...er....um.... that stupid Da Vinci Code. I've had it for years but all the hoopla turned me off, until he was sued. I started it then, just to compare with The Holy Angels... (whatever the title of that book is) that I have waiting. Also reading about 15 others including The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, A Course in Miracles, If You See Buddha By the Side of the Road, Kill Him, and A Path With Heart by Kornfield. (Well...hey....it's cheaper than therapy.)

Hero: Put your "Myths" on my booklist. I should get to it by the year 2028.

I read three Dan Brown books: Deception Point, Digital Fortress and Angels & Demons. Now I'm about 1/3 through The Da Vinci Code. I have to get this one read so I can see the movie while it's still in theaters. I love Dan Brown's books.

Sometimes I feel like I am the last person in the world who has no desire to read "The Da Vinci Code."
