Have you ever tried Clive Barker?  He is twisted, but an absolutely amazing writer.

Right now I am reading the 911 Commision report and "Through Violet Eyes" by Stephen Woodworth.

Isnt Clive the dude that made Hellraiser?

I tried reading Everwood but couldn't quite get into it.

I'm reading Seven Types of Ambiguity by Eliot Perlman and Just One Look by Harlan Coben, pretty decent mystery...I'm getting into it faster than the Perlman book.

I'm incedibly happy today.  Yesterday, I went into the Forbidden Planet and got hold of a book I've been after for ages - The Horror in the Museum and Other Revisions by H P Lovecraft.

(Do I have to say that I could easily have spent my next 15 years wages in there?)

I am reading the memoir of the young man who got pinned down by a rock in Utah in '03 and had to amputate his own arm. His name was Aron Ralston and the book is called Between and Rock and a Hard Place I am nearly done. It is an excellent book.

A lot of Rush fans are also bookworms to no small degree.

Please share what's on your bedside (or toiletside) table.

I may as well start:

I just finished reading Che Guevara's The Motorcycle Diaries.

It completely changed my attitude toward the man. Previously I had dismissed him as an anarchist of meager intellect who just happened to rise to public fame from being at the right places at the right times; but now I am privy to a whole 'nother Che - intelligent, kind, sensitive, funny, considerate.

I recently re-read 'Band Of Brothers' and afterwards I decided to read all of Ambrose's WWII books, so I picked this up yesterday.

I loved his first book, The Cat in the Hat, and the follow up Green Eggs and Ham. I just had to read this one too.

Wow, that cover sure brings back memories.

Dr. Seuss's The Lorax had a big impact on me.

Just finished "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time" By Mark Haddon, written from the perspective of a 15 year old autistic boy. Best book I've read in ages.

Before that it was Terry Pratchett's Bromeliad Trilogy - Truckers, Diggers and Wings.

Highly recommended!!

Just finished Ghost Rider and The Silmarillion, almost simultaneously (yes, two books at the same time). Now to simpler entertainment, Tom Clancy's Netforce: Night Moves.

I am currently reading a slew of Isaac Asimov's essays. My local library fortunately has a ton of them and I have consumed every one. I keep re-reading them and wishing he were still among us to give us more. Even the ones from the  1950's still resonate with me.
