Let's get a bit scholarly here. Just tell us the name of the book you just finished reading or is currently reading now. School book text included.

Just finished last nite: All the President's Men (about Watergate scandal)
Just starting : Casino (made into movie with De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci, directed by Martin Scorsese, i guess you know that).

What about the rest here? Magazines regularly read not included :D

im reading "the interpretation of dreams" by Freud currently.

I'm a book worm.
But, at the moment loads of work drag me away from my book.
Yet I still manage to read a novel by Eric Jerome Dickey called "Genevieve"

Maldinesta, do you remember Indonesian book series called Senopati Pamungkas by Arswendo Atmowiloto around 89-92? They have 25 books in the series and the fun part was waiting for the next installment.

Is this the same Carl Sagan whose book turned into the movie Contact (Jodie Foster)? The film is a must for all atheist! Too bad can't find the book here.

Honestly, neither I'm his admirer, nor, ever heard about those book.

In my teen day's , I read more Imported(translated ones), than locals.
Except, maybe timekiller, like "212", or Novel by marga T, and Ike Supomo.
Japanese Books once,made my days, like "Musashi", by Eiji Yosikawa.
Also, from Brazilian Author, Paulo Coelho.I love his books :)

The last fiction book I've read was Sidney Sheldon's "Are you afraid of the dark?"

Sorry to ask lately, but exactly what kind of book is "Da Vinci Code", seems everyone talk about it :)

Currently I'm reading : the Guide to Space and the Universe by Isaac Asimov.
5 books waiting in my drawer to be read: Alexander (3 books) and 2 books by Carl Sagan (Cosmos and Contact). At least for the next few months my reading material supply is secured.

I bought the whole 6 books (all brand new) for less than USD 20 in some incredible sale :D
