What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

Personally I love reading and always have something on the go. Reading sharpens the mind. I imagine many of you read as well when you have time to kill on your travels or perhaps just in general. So the topic is simple; what are you reading at the moment? What's it like so far? Enjoying it? Hating it? Just simply want to list it? Go for it!

Currently I'm reading two books:

On War by Carl von Clausewitz and Confessions of an English Opium Eater and Other Writings by Thomas De Quincey.

Share yours!

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

The Alabama & the Kearsarge: The Sailor's Civil War, by William Marvel. (My wife's great-great uncle was a sailor aboard USS Kearsarge during its hunt for the Confederate raider Alabama.) Interesting to read how this action carried the American Civil war to Europe and the Mediterranean.

and on my netbook with the Kindle software I am reading a book recommended by TB member kvom "One Shot" by Lee Child, a Jack Reacher series book. This book is being made into a movie staring Tom Cruise.

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

I'm reading "11/22/63" by Stephen King at the moment.  Haven't enjoyed any King for several years, but this is terrific!

Wow, Keith...I read "Working" back in college, it had to come out what, 35 years ago?  Still relevant???  I forget most of it, but love(d) Studs.

A book title: 'Is It Love or Addiction' (for book report).  It's an excellent book!

The 100 year old man who climbed out of a window. I'm only three pages in though, so too early to recommend. And microeconomics for MBAs.

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

I am half way through Lifeless by Mark Billingham.  It's the 4th book in the DI Thorne series and I am enjoying it a lot.  Book 3 Burning Girl was a disappointment so I am pleased this one is better.

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

I'm reading Under the dome by Stephen King, so far so good. Wasn't really into King books until a trip to Africa. There were only a few books to choose from on our truck so I read Duma key and I've loved him ever since.

The Oxford Companion to Politics in India. Nice change for the crappy books I had to read about Anesthesiology.

Oh and I have been reading Steven Hawking's ex-wife's book "Music the Move the Stars" cos my bf watched the BBC tv film and wanted to know how the hell totally decrepit man managed to have sex life.

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

Currently reading "Win The War From Within" by Floyd H. Chilton.  He talks about healing from the inside out, which consists of proper nutrition and incorporating a clean diet to rid oneself of illnesses and diseases.

Just ordered online "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay as new reading material for next month's trip.

Re: What are you reading RIGHT NOW?

Last year i read "Reckless Endangerment" by G.Morgenson concerning the Market melt down here in the USA. Very good but a complicated read. Picking at "Money Mischief" by Milton Friedman,will take a little while too. My next book will be more fun, "Where the West Ends" by Michael J. Totten,(stories from the Middle East,the Balkans,the Black Sea and the Caucasus).Maybe fun is the wrong word?

Good book that.

I'm struggling with Adolf Hitler's Mein Kamph - interesting read though.
