Well since this thread got deleted in the KnownHost crash, what is everyone reading? I just got done with the horrid child abuse book "A Child Called It". It's a written account of one of California's worst child abuse cases, told from the perspective of the child on the end of it. I read this book in both Middle and High School classes, but I recently bought it for a cheap amount on Amazon.

There's always been talk that the story is fake or exaggerated, but it's a pretty amazing book all things considered.

The thread is still around, but who knows what posts are missing now.

I just finished The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly 



From Amazon:

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother. He is angry and alone, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in his imagination, he finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a land that is a strange reflection of his own world, populated by heroes and monsters, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book... The Book of Lost Things. 

I really enjoyed this one. Simple narrative with a nice flow, best fiction I've read since Game of Thrones but I haven't been reading as much lately.

Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel. I'm planning to read through all the Ian Fleming ones, though I already read From Russia With Love.

The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas. Well, of course there is! You're her. And you're still just as perfect as the day we met.

Right now I'm reading a book called the Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons. Interesting stuff. It's a good mix of history and science. It focuses on how people learned how the brain worked via trauma and unethical practices throughout the years. But you can kinda guess that based on the cover.

It's horrible and fascinating to think how much science has gleaned from war time atrocities. Unit 731 in Japan, the US PARDONED the scientists and doctors in exchange for what they knew.

Next book I'm reading is this one. It's pretty interesting. Mostly about the origins of humanity, life, etc and our attempts at understanding ourselves

House Of Leaves - It's a total mind trip and confusing but intriguing none the less.
