NVR - What are you reading right now? (Fiction or non-fiction)

I'm reading 'Raising Vegan Children in a Non-vegan World' by Erin Pavlina.
I'm curious what everyone else has their nose in at the moment!  :)

You should all discuss these books in The Official Book Club. http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=23969.0

I think the problem is not all of us have been lingering around for a long time or simply forgot there was already a thread on this subject.

So is the book club one just like this thread? Or do we all read the same book and then comment on it a week later?

It's...whatever you want it to be. Your dream come true.

In that case, I'll off to see the Official Book Club thread, the wonderful Official Book Club thread of Vegweb (sung to the music of the Wizard of Oz) :)

I love this book! Huge fan of George Orwell.

Wish I was reading something other than textbooks right now, but unfortunately my main reading material right now is Canadian Tax Principals and Finance. Whoo hoo!  :(

It is one of Orwell's lesser known books. It is about Orwell time in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. After seeing Pans Labyrinth, I keep meaning to read it.

Really? I have never heard of it. I very much enjoyed Pans Labyrinth, it wasn't at all what I was expecting when I first watched it. Very cool movie.
I'll have to check out Homage to Catalonia, almost the end of the semester so I cram as much non accounting related books into my breaks as possible!! Is that one of his earlier works?

Does reading a cookbook count?  ;D

I just finished Twilight. The first book in the series. I guess now I have to follow up with the rest. In the meantime, I'm continuing to read "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" by Flannery O'Connor. I just read the first short story. I wish I could read more, but I think I have an attention span of a two year old when it comes to reading a book. :)

I just finished The Gum Thief, which is the most recent novel by my favoritest author in the world, Douglas Coupland. ("Most Recent" is relative; it's been out for years but I finally found it in paperback). LOVED IT.

If anyone else have tastes that fall under the slightly-snarky, heavily pop-culture laden realm, recommend me an author.

I just started reading a book on the philosophy of learning by the guy who was the subject of the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer. Interesting stuff...

can anyone tell me if "Freakonomics" is a worth-while read?

i'm sorry if someone has said something about it in the threat before, i just don't have the patience to browse thru 20 pages of replies.... im gonna be needing something to read in a day or two and can't find any fiction to read right now (i guess i could always go look at all the unread stuff on my bookshelf)

oh! i would recommend "I am not Esther" to anyone. it's short but it is soooo good. its about a girl who gets dumped by her mother with some relatives who turn out to be super religious (almost like polygamist religious) and she spends her time between trying to teach the other kids its okay to be "normal" and trying to find the real reason her mother took off

I dunno if this counts, because I'm actuallly *listening* to an audiobook of "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency." Is it just me, or is this book unimpressive? I get the feeling it's kind of a patchwork of leftover ideas wrapped loosely in Mr Adams' interest in then-new forms of software and tied up with his term paper on the mathematics of music. So far I am underwhelmed.

Yes, it's fascinating and and a quick read.
