I'm reading Tolstoy's 'Childhood, boyhood and youth', it's a fascinating book with a good insight into russian culture pre the revolution. It is based on Tolstoy's upbringing - he says gfairly loosely, but I'm guessing its a nigh-on autobiography of his younger years. I have read an edited version of his diaries too, which are strange and funny.

I'm curently reading a great book called Nothing. And if you haven't figured it out already, then no i'm not reading a book right now. Even though i love to read I currently busy with this thing called Life and Friends. I used to ignore both to read books but i've learned my lesson. Books are all evil!!! Just Kidding but it is important to put the book down once in a while and talk to your friends and family and the opposite gender.

I'm reading "Shopaholic Ties The Knot." by Sophie Kinsella. It's a funny book. Very entertaining. It acutally helps me release the stress at work.. What a good stress reliever. I already finish the 1st book, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan.

I'm reading 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism.' It's a book I think everyone should read because it tells how today's world leaders, businessmen, educators, and everyone else for that matter, have been lied to regarding the threat of global warming. It tells about how some scientists and environmentalists distort some facts and completely deny others to give credibility to the "global warming" myth.

I'm reading World without end but it's actually do back at the library tomorrow so I am going to cheat and read the last fifty pages of the book. I've already renewed it once and I dont feel like doing it again. It's a good book but not great. The pillars of the earth was a better book in my opinion.

In terms of actual paper books, I'm reading Michael Moorcock's 'Dancers at the end of time' series, which is possibly the oddest thing he ever wrote. And that's saying a lot.
