Peter Singer's 1979 book, Practical Ethics. This is probably the 7th time I've read it and I'm still picking up on new things. Part of the reason why philosophy is so much fun!

Reading FreeFall book 3 of the Tunnels series.

Also my English teacher is now requiring me to read Ender's Game. Even though I lost Of Mice and Men.

Tunnels series.

yes those are good, I'm waiting for the one after Spiral.

I finally finished Needful Things and I've moved onto Desperation.
The only similarities I can find between the two is that there's a person who isn't quite a person, but that's about where it ends.
The other day some guy criticized me for always reading Stephen King. I happen to like to read well-written horror. If I brought Lovecraft to school, I'd probably be criticized even more.

In English class, I was assigned to read To Kill a Mockingbird. I must say, I was surprised to find out that it's actually a good book!

Basically just a group of quick and easy problem solving tools for engineers and people who (like me) have to be able to come up with a reasonable number on the fly.
Here's a few open source chapters from MIT, if anyone's interested.

@apldeap123 The Great Gatsby is, and always shall be, the best book I was ever assigned for English class.

Need this in my life. Thank you.

I'm reading Old Path White Clouds and the Lotus Sutra. I'm not sure if I'm still reading Atmospheric Disturbances or not. I am mildly interested in seeing where the story goes but the writing style gets in the way. I understand and appreciate where the style is coming from, so maybe it would be more fair to say that I don't like the main character/narrator.

On the other hand, I'm enjoying Old Path White Clouds. It's like a massage for my brain.

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, an account of his hike on the Appalachian Trail. It's utterly hilarious.

I hate that book so much. It's not nearly gritty enough, and it's so slow.

Only paper books, only hardcore))
I have a 50-books collection of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. storys)) Very interesting post-apocalypse thing, especially for fans of this subject)) Unfortunately, almost of them (if not all..) are not translated on English..=(
But it's good reason to learn Russian)) ^_^

I'm rereading the Midwhich Cuckoos by John Wyndham. The peemise is that one day in a small country village in 1950s England, everyone falls unconcious for a short while, and all of the women are found to be pregnant soon after. A thoroughly creepy book.

Don't you spoil any of that book, 09. I've been waiting so long for the end and really loved the others.
