I'm re-reading Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel. Such a great book!

The movie will not be as good but anything with Christina Ricci (the image of female perfection) is worth a look.

You'll Never Eat Lunch in this Town Again, by Julia Phillips. Memoirs of the first woman to receive an Oscar for Best Picture (The Sting), chronicling her cocaine addition. Lotsa Hollywood dish; I just finished reading about the behind-the-scenes difficulties during Taxi Driver (MPAA bullshit) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Francois Truffaut was a total prick), along with tales of the stars (Goldie Hawn is a skank, Richard Dreyfuss is an angry fuck [in the literal sense], Jon Peters is a bad lay). An okay book, but really long; I've been reading it over a week not and am barely halfway through it.

Miracle and other Christmas Stories - Connie Willis

Seriously, noone ever read anything form her? You don't know what you're missing! So far it's a 10/10. Funniest. Christmas. Stories. Ever.

Dark Tower V: The Wolves Of Calla and Danse Macabre, both by Stephen King.

Wish I'd actually read them...both are in about 100 pages, but I can't seem to able to lift a book up, much less read it.

"Red Dwarf" by Grant Naylor (possibly Rob Grant and Doug Naylor combined in one body). Its pretty much like Series 1 and 2 (maybe even 3) combined in one book, which is pretty cool because I haven't seen the show in ages and am thinking about buying the DVD's. Really funny as well, good read for any Dwarf fan.

The latest Repair Man Jack novel, and I must admit it is a tasty little morsel of genre mixing literature.

I went a little crazy at the library yesterday, checking out more books that I can read in three weeks. They are:
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon
  • Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble, and Coming of Age in the Bronx, by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc
  • A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, by Dave Eggers
  • Naked, by David Sedaris
  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, by Michael Lewis
  • The Elements of Style, by William Strunk, Jr.

Someday I'll be able to check out Dude, Where's My Country. Why only one copy there? For some reason the library isn't taking a waiting list for it. All his other books are hard to get, too.

I just finished reading the entire Harry Potter series for the first time. I was thoroughly impressed. Here are my rankings for the books. I can't wait for year six. Anyone know when that might come out?


Here's how I rank them.

1. (Tie) HP and the Prizoner of Azkaban 10/10
& HP and the Goblet of Fire 10/10

2. HP and the Order of the Phoenix 9/10

3. HP and the Chamber of Secrets 9/10

4. HP and the Sorceror's Stone 8.5/10

SPOILERS for ALL BOOKS!!!

Prizoner of Azkaban just had something really amazing to it, and that's why I can't wait for the film. Maybe it was the "break from confronting Voldemort up close, I don't know. I hope it's as magical as the book. And I just had so much fun with Goblet of Fire as well. I loved the Triwizard Tournament, and all the new students. Great stuff all through there. PoA is definately the best though. Order was great, but not as good as the Poa or GoF. The end battle, which was good, let me down, and it seemed that Sirius died only because Rowling promised us that someone would die. His death seemed out of place and unessecary for the moment. I don't disagree with his character dying, but I think it was handled sloppily. I liked CoS because of the whole Tom Riddle twist, which was nice. I thought for a second that every Defense against the dark arts Teacher was going to be the bad guy, and that was going to get stale, but Rowling surprised me nicely here. (Maybe this freshness explains my like of PoA). And of course, Sorceror's Stone was great, although perhaps a little slower and episodic, because the world of Harry Potter was new. Overall, great series, second in my opinion only to Lord of the Rings. I recommend them all to haven't read them, and of course, being written for a slightly younger audience, they are amazingly easy to read and comprehend. I read them all in about a two week period. Cheers.

Just finished reading "The Rum Diary" by Thompson. Dissapointing to say the least.

Now reading, The Program.

Right now I'm reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. So far it's the strangest book I've ever read.

I HAVE to remember to pick that one up from the Library sometime.. keep forgetting dammit!

Anyway, went to the liberry yesterday and picked up:

Girl, Interrupted

Catch Me if You Can

A Simple Plan

All based off movies weirdly enough.. not much selection at my library- too many sucky ass books to borrow. The major patrons are 60 year old Women with a passion for trahy romance novels, so go figure...
