Hitler's autobiography? I really want to read that.

I finally finished Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. Fantastic book that I recommend to all.

And I've already seen Rules of Attraction so I won't be reading that (I've got this thing about reading a book after I've seen the movie).

If you are interesting in reading Brett Easton Ellis you have to read Less Then Zero. It's by far his best book.

I've lost a lot of respect for King.

I second that. I've not been a fan of King's for years. For me, his early stuff is awesome, but after Tommyknockers, most of his work went down the drain. I HATED The Cell.

I didn't like the Cell either. I read "it" for the first time last year and couldn't stand "it"! It was so long winded, and so damn boring. Wasn't scary in the least bit.

So I finally got around to finishing Brother Odd by Dean Koontz. I've never been so into a book where I could just sit down and not realize how many pages I've flown through. It was a good read, and I really enjoyed it. It seems to me that Odd Thomas doesn't end here.

Just finished Hellbound Heart bye Clive Barker. It exactly the same as Hellraiser except Pinhead is a girl. Right now I'm reading Cell. It's ok I have feeling this is gonna be one of Kings not really good ones.

I'm reading The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore right now. Not loving it, really, too cutesy for me, but it was lent to me by a friend so I'm giving it a shot.

Later today, I'm going to dig through my big stack of to-read books and find something new to assail. It may be Michael Houellebecq. Could be Steve Erickson.

Eh, I just didn't dig Less Then Zero at all. I've only read that plus American Psycho. And Less Then Zero just totally pales in comparison to American Psycho for me.

Finished A Boy's Life finally (haven't been reading very much lately). Overall, I had a fun time with this book. The ending was a little meh, but I still enjoyed the book.

Now I'm onto Charlie Huston's A Dangerous Man to finish off the Hank Thompson trilogy. Just picked it up at Border's and I'm pretty psyched to read it.
