    I'm currently reading the entire literary works of Edgar Allan Poe, it's a lot of awesome short stories and poems written by Poe but also includes some of his essays he wrote which are also very good. To be more specific I'm reading the Fall of the House of Usher and will be getting into William Wilson soon, the only story by Poe I haven't previously read.

                  Just read "Love in the Time of Cholera" by Gabriel García Márquez. Really good, but tough to get through

                    The only book i've read in a while is the new Harry Potter book.

                    It was magical. (Pun intended)

                      i just finished an amazing book called A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. It's his true story of growing up in Sierra Leone and becoming a child soldier. Very easy to read and very disturbing.

                      Another book i just started to read but am in love with is called Into the Wild which they are actually making into a movie and it comes out later this month. Its about a young man who graduates from college, gives his life savings to charity, leaves all his possessions, and hitchhikes across the country to Alaska.

                          Man I should read more books but I just can't get into them, I'd rather waste my time here lol. I was supposed to read Beowulf and Canterbury Tales so far for my English class but cliff notes just sounded better lol.

                          For freshman year of college I had to read about the life story of a holocaust survivor, it was VERY interesting... I didn't mind reading it.

                          I also had to read a 700 page book called The Frontiersman about pioneers in Kentucky, it was based on the pioneer who my HS was named after. I gotta say it was pretty sweet reading about all the Indian torture techniques. They would pull out peoples intestines and wrap them around a tree while they were still alive, shoot gun powder at naked guys sacks then of course scalping.

                            If you're a Palahniuk fan, go out and read Rant. I just did and it's another good one. It's not as good as Lullaby or Survivor, but it's still better than most of the crap out there.

                              I am currently reading the label on my Blue Moon and you'd be surprised to find out that "According to the surgeon general, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects"
