    High School English teachers were very incompetent.

      Definitely is. Been a few years since I last read it, I probably won't get around to it again until the semester is over.


      I'm currently reading Tropic of Hockey: My Search for the Game in Unlikely Places. I bought it during the lockout and never got around to reading most of it.

              Just finished reading Wieland by Charles Brockden Brown.

              Quite easily the best book written in 1798.

                "American Gods" - Neil Gaiman. 2007 Hugo award winner. Gaiman's awesome.

                Just read the Batman graphic novel, "The Long Halloween" as well. Another solid recommendation.

                But seriously, pick up American Gods. There's no way you won't like it.

                  Read this one awhile back but it's still an excellent book



                  About the genocide in Rwanda, and also about how basically useless the UN is.

                    If you're into fantasy novels, I recommend most R.A. Salvatore books(very few authors describe battle scenes better) and of course Dragonlance Chronicles and Dragonlance Legends by Weiss and Hickman, as well as the Dragonlance Heroes set of books. The Legend of Huma is particularly great IMO.



                    If you're into some mindless type reading, I though the Stephen King novel "Cell" was quite good.



                    And for more mindless(but very fun) entertainment, try the new Warhammer 40,000 series "the Horus Heresy" Extremely good books. I'm hooked on this series right now.

                            Man I used to read the Dragonlance/Forgotten Realms books all the time. I have The Legend of Huma & its sequel Kaz the Minotaur somewhere.

                            Its been taking me awile, but ive been working my way through this great book.

                              The Count of Monte Cristo. And the movie is almost as good.

                                It is about human sexual psychology. It is a fascinating read.
