I would recommend for non-fiction if you haven't already read it: "The cocaine papers" by Dr. Sigmund Freud and for fiction: "The husband" by Dean R. Koontz or "The song of Suzanna" by Stephen King. Does anyone else have a book that they have read recetly that they would recommend reading?

I'd heard mixed reviews about The Husband over the summer and did end up getting it from the library but didnt have a chance to read it.... Books I've read that i would recommend would be the fiction (and hilarious) book Dirty Job by Christopher Moore and also by him Practical Demonkeeping...the entire Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R Ward....For NON fiction I would have to recommend "When Rabbit Howls" by "the Troops" (Trudy Chases other personalities), Hostage to the Devil (forget the author but I bought it recently after reading great reviews about it) and also A Long Way Home which is another i've not read yet but did buy due to rave reviews and "Hardcore Zen" by Brad Warner which I am reading for the second time actually.... Only some of those are recent reads for me..some are older reads though....and of course as I mentioned for a couple, I've not read at all yet..

I haven't read anything that's not school related in about a year, but there were still a few good books in the piles that I had to go through. Simon Reynolds' "Rip it Up and Start Again" is a great history of post punk music in the late 70s and 80s. Michael Chanan's "Repeated Takes" is a history of recording technologies that is actually way more interesting than it sounds, particularly the chapter on Sgt. Pepper. Oh, and my boyfriend just read "The Man the High Tower" by Philip K. D*ck and says it's really good---it's a 'what if' history of the US if the Nazis had won WWII. I'm going to start reading it this week. PS--- Mylot won't actually let me write out the author's name, because it thinks it's a rude word. Man, how's THAT for censorship...I guess I can't review "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", either.
