    Just started Slouching Towards Kalamazoo by Peter De Vries, a brilliant, American novelist, essayist and satirist.

  4. Jimmy J Read

    CHERUB by Robert Muchamore

    I mean to read more but I just never seem to. If I'm in a Uni semester I always think that I should be reading the text books and if I'm on holidays like now, I think that I should be doing better things with my time.

    I'd also recommend God Is Not Great, by old mate to the left, in my avatar; C Hitchens. He writes with a superior prose to Dawkins, as is to be expected - Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist, and Hitchens, a well-read scribe and wordsmith. Just don't buy from Angus and Robertson - 30 odd pages missing from the paperback I purchased. Thought I was going senile.

    Incidentally, the aforementioned novel I'm currently perusing was recommended by the Hitch in this excellent debate - Perhaps if you are interested in theological discussion.

    Hitch of course, massacres his adversary.

    I recently finished reading a 900 page, introductory, psychology text book used at Yale and MIT - If I had to do shit like that for testing/examination, and over many years, I'd probably slit my throat.

    Forgive me if I've asked this before and forgotten, but what are you studying again?

    I know EWS is doing economics and just loves it.:clap:

    excellent. Watching now. Thanks.

    Business degree with a double major in Accounting and Financial Planning. It's not too bad. Only one semester to go and then I can be the dodgy accountant everyone needs.

    Reading is over rated and gay

    Just started Michael Crichton - Disclosure last night.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Haha. One of your staples, I presume.

    Stick to colouring books then.

    Millions of poor and illiterate people would give their right arm to be able to read Orwell and Eliot and Proust.
  16. 99* JJ Ritchie

    Currently pounding through the following:

    - Harrington on Hold'em #'s 1, 2 and 3.
    - Tournament Poker for Advanced players.
    - In Conquest Born.

    Should be reading by uni textbooks for next semester but cbf.
  17. SmellyStuff MP Chung

    Pffft, who reads uni textbooks in their spare time? Not even my med school mates do it. <_<

    Reading smart people books is overrated

    just bought metro 2033 yesterday

    mum read the back of it and it said cult best seller and she instantly though I was joining an actual cult :/

    Every Indian economics student I've ever met.

    Exactly. They don't do it in their spare time because they have to do it in their study time. I'd rather read genuine psych books by genuine experts than "self-help" nonsense by pop psychologists like Dr. Phil.
