I had some free time the other day and read most of Cellblock, IIRC. Not sure of the title, but it's about a black man and a white man who are put in a cell together to see how integration works at the Georgia State Prison. They become friends, of course, and put together a basketball team before both are released. That's as far as I got.

Yeah, No books (last one I read was Ric Flair's book), but i've read Empire magazine and two Batman comics. Which is weird, cos I havent read a comic book in three years, but I just thought 'to hell with it', and got a couple of comic books the other day.

"Different Seasons" by Stephen King [features four "novellas", three of which were made into movies - The Body (Stand By Me), Apt Pupil, and Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption (Shawshank Redemption, obviously)]. Good stuff. The fourth novella [The Breathing Method] is sort of lame.

"Microserfs" by Douglas Coupland. This guy is AWESOME. I've read five of his books [Microserfs, Life After God, Generation-X, All Families Are Psychotic, Polaroids From the Dead], and they are all [with the exception of the non-fiction Polaroids] really, really good, especially Life After God and Microserfs.

"Deliverance" by [i forget]. Decent, but slow, and yeah..

I'm pretty much done with reading now that I'm back in school and my reading time has now turned into homework time.

Cloudy read 4 books in the last week? :o

Erm, I don't know what's so odd about that? Each of the books was in the area of 500 pages, and read in all my spare time at school (except during lunch) and then when I go to bed at night I usually read a few hours.

I suppose I should also say that by the time I was 12 years old I could read and comprehend books on the 12th grade reading level :blush:

I don't actually read that much so it came as a great annoyance when I was told to read the rest of Othello for English.... man it sucks.

I also bought Battle Royale yesterday, so I gotta get to reading that.

I hate reading books for classes, because I'm always restricted to what I can read. I'd much rather be able to read Koontz or King or Lumley or something to my liking for an assignment than Dickens or Homer.

Nothing like some old fashioned propaganda...
