I'm reading Something Happened by Joseph Heller, the author of Catch-22 (one of my all time favorites). I'm really busy with classes right now so I'm going through it slowly but surely.

Ever since college I find I'm not reading as much as I'd like to. In high school we hardly did anything, and I'd end up reading entire novels in 3 days just in my free time! Now I'm working on making sure I get some reading in. I also have been raiding my library's used books store weekly and I'm really finding some treasures. A few months ago I got 8 really nice, brand new Kurt Vonnegut books for 75 cents apiece! (I've now become a huuuge fan).

..as for Something Happened well, its much more dense than Catch-22, less things happening with more comprehenssive explanations of every emotion, personal tick, and character relationship you can think of. It's very dark and unfliching in it's honesty, but like the other book it's still very funny.

I found the translations on the Vampire Hunter D books to be jagged. (Not like I could do better, mind you.) It's hard to describe but the prose comes off as real herky-jerky, so I only ever made it through the first 2.

I think Vampire Hunter D is going to go on the backburner. I decided to start a third epic fantasy series instead. Sword of Truth!!! X_X

I'm about 20 pages short of finishing Bart Ehrman's book on the Gospel of Judas even as we speak.

I just finished Rex Stout's And Four to Go [an excellent quartet of Nero Wolfe mysteries] - I haven't yet decided whether to read Stout's The Golden Spiders next or to start in on volume four of the Anthony Tollin-Nostalgia Ventures pulp reprints of The Shadow Magazine novels The Murder Master and The Hydra

Coming Up For Air by George Orwell, which remains very relevent, if not far more relevent, nearly seventy years after its publication.

"Tyrannosaur Canyon" by Douglas Preston, described by critics as what Jurassic Park would have been like had it been written by John Grisham. Pretty interesting, though I've only gotten a few chapters in. I've been stuck, instead, on a short story collection called "Shivers for Christmas," which has cool macabre holiday stories. :)

I wish I could find our copy of Stephen King's "Skeleton Crew," sitting around the house, because I really want to read "The Mist" again after seeing the movie. I guess I'll have to go to the supermarket and buy the single.
