I guess I am also reading In Cold Blood by Truman Capote in addition to Breaking Dawn. Go figure.

I originally started a book called Generation Dead. It's about zombie teenagers, but they do absolutely nothing zombie-ish. I closed the book around page twenty when the explanation for why only teens turn to zombies was, "the combination of hormones and the chemicals in fast food."

It was stupid so I returned the book and decided to take up the Series of Unfortunate Events series again. I'll start off where I left off four years ago at "The Ersatz Elevator"

Sounds like a good book, I'll try it later.

I'm now reading "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell" by Tucker Max. I bet you'd like it; it's "highly entertaining and thoroughly reprehensible" according to the NY Times.

Just picked up The Pluto Files by Neil deGrasse Tyson. Those who stalk me on facebook might have known this already. Anyway, Tyson is pretty frequent on The Daily Show and he recently talked about this book. I had been meaning to pick it up sooner but Borders.com is a complete joke.

Been reading alot lately. I finished 3 Lemony Snicket books the past two weeks. I attempted to read "Left Behind" but it was boring as hell. So I swapped it for a book called "Born to Rock". Hopefully, I can get a library card soon so I can get some decent books outside of the school library.

I'm currently reading this book "Thinking in Pictures" by Temple Grandin. (updated version)

It's about her autism and it's very interesting, but more like an instruction manual about how to care for and treat a autistic person. Some great insights on how they think and feel and why.

If you know anyone with autism this seems to be a great book about the problem since it was written by an autistic person.

I think I'd like to read that book.

I just finished this book which I believe you'll like.

"I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell" by Tucker Max. A very funny book.
