i couldn't sleep last night so i FINALLY finished this:
thought it was really good, i think that i might even like it more than v for vendetta [yes, even with the really lame-o female hero character whose "skill" is kneeing people in the nuts].

FINALLY got started on this Sunday.
I saw Chuck on his book tour for this book. He read the short story "Guts" to the crowd. That was... what, a year and a half ago? Reading it again even now, I still get a little queasy. Sick, disgusting, and ****ing hilarious.

im reading Black and Blue about the 1966 world series between the dodgers and orioles. it was koufax's last season, with the author doing a great job telling how much pain sandy was in and the incredible effort he had to put in to make his arm game ready. the book also give a great idea of what the country was like at the time and the circumstances surrounding the games.

Just finished Running with Scissors. Completely bizarre and twisted... I wonder how much is actually true?

Just finished 'Dogs of God' by James Reston Jr. (Spanish Inquisition et al) and 'A Perfect Hell' by John Nadler (Origin of the Special Forces). Both good reads.
Now I'm on to Jon Krakauer's 'Under the Banner of Heaven'...looking forward to it.

i thought it was pretty good, a little info heavy in places and i lost track of some of the facts (but it could be that was distracted at those times). i liked how the narrative was presented in letters, memoirs, and first person.
i am now reading this:
