    Now I am reading THE FIGHTER'S BODY, suggested to me by our own Xue Sheng. After that it is on to THE FAT LOSS BIBLE and then finally BLEEDING EDGE by Thomas Pynchon.

    Actually, I have WAY more than that sitting here on my desk at work to go through. People joke that I am starting a library. I have all but one of Thomas Pynchon's books, and I want to read them from beginning to end again. But I also have several books that I have NEVER read to go through first.

    FLINT, Louis L-Amour
    ZIG ZIGLAR'S SECRETS OF CLOSING THE SALE
    COMPLETE WORKS OF OSCAR WILDE
    SIL-LUM KUNG FU
    WHAT IS AIKIDO
    WHITE CRANE GUNG-FU
    THE RUSSIA HOUSE, John Le Carre

    I picked up those three martial arts books at a garage sale or something like that. Those are meant to be quick, fun reads in between the heavier stuff.

    anything by kathy reichs, tess gerritson, pj tracey, karin slaughter --- you get the drift they're all murder mystery thrillers and all of them are a darn good read --- all are also un-put-down-able :)

    I just finished Thomas Jefferson: Author of America by Christopher Hitchens. It's a very short biography hitting on key moments, decisions, and contradictions of Jefferson's life.

    Finally finished The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean. I was reading chapters of it between reading other books. Now I'm on to Salman Rushdie's Joseph Anton: A Memoir.
