I put this in the other book suggestion thread but thought i would post it here aswell 'cause everybody should read this book!!!

Dave Eggers has a new book out called Zeitoun and it is def. worth the read!!!!!

It realy touched me and am gonna read it again....

Peace

edit:


Zeitoun tells the true, closely observed story of one New Orleans family and their experiences of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath -- a story that allows Eggers to penetrate into both the goodness of America's psyche and its darker dysfunctions. Critics too often state that a new book isn't just a story, it's "about America." In this case, Eggers has produced exactly that -- a book that's not just about America, it's as all-American as it can be, with its wide vision and its clear portrait of individual courage in the face of officially sanctioned stupidity. The irony is that it's an all-American book whose main character is Syrian.


Dave Eggers's Zeitoun delivers a Katrina story for the ages

I am rereading Deadeye Dick by Vonnegut. And starting lots of books for my courses!

I recently finished Cat's Cradle- Vonnegut for the third time. It is my favorite book ever, I think.

I recently finished Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry. Cool story about a cop who kills a terrorist, only to find he's risen from the dead. Followed that up with Level 26 by the dude who created CSI. It's the story of a serial killer so sick, so twisted, that they add a new level (26) to classify him. Accidental homicide would be level 1. Dahmer was level 19 or something. The book isn't bad but every 20 or so pages you're given a password to enter on the site (level26.com) and you can watch a 4 minute video that bridges the story. I stopped watching the videos as I was reading the book on a plane.

Currently reading The Monuments Men by Robert Edsel. This follows the creation of The Monuments Men, a military group (brits and americans) who were tasked with protecting and recovering artwork, architecture etc during world war II.

Patient Zero is a cool cool book. I got the proof copy before it was published

Didn't have the video links in it though... Sounds intriguing!

Perks of being a bookseller...

Bill Brysons Shakespeare.
I like his travel writings, though not as much as William Darymples works.
Bryson changes tack in doing this biography, though its a reliable Bryson in the sence that he is incredibly well informed and maintains wit and crispness thorughout. He celebrates Shakespeares language and investigates the complexities of Shakesperean scholarship, a field full of debate and myth.

Lovers of Bryson or Shakespeare will enjoy it.

On the subject of zombies, have you read either the zombie survival guide or world war z? Real good fun!

John Ridley ~ Love Is A Racket


Despite its grim subject matter, the book is sexy and often outright funny. ("My good luck was LA's a great place to work. Except for the smog and the gang violence, the brushfires in summer, the rain and floods in the winter, it's great.") Ridley injects bits of Eastern mysticism and icy realism to suggest a deeper truth behind Jeffty's tragicomic façade. While it's not a book for the overly sensitive, it is a masterpiece of noir black comedy that recalls Elmore Leonard's best writing. --Patrick O'Kelley

Currently listening to Dan Browns The Lost Symbol as an audiobook. Quite nice when you work in a lab all day...

Right now I'm reading Anne Rule's Dead By Sunset. She's a local author and I like her true crime books.

I'm almost finished with 'Songs of the Dying Earth' which is a collection of stories in honor of Jack Vance. A few of them are very good and if you like the Dying Earth books it's worth while.

It's football season and I've been wanting to read 'Quiet Strength' by Tony Dungy for awhile now so, it's next.

Re-reading The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan as I am awaiting the new one and it is a long series of books, so I need to get reacquainted with all of the characters.

The series is also sort of a hint as to where Wilder comes from.

I'm reading We The Living by Ayn Rand, at the moment.

So far, it's pretty good. A little on the 'romance novel' side, but not enough to annoy me too badly.

I have finally gotten around to getting and reading Richard Dolan's books "UFOs and the National Security State". They are an incredible read and shows how the government acted as the UFO phenomena started and moved along.

Extremely well documented with great information. No speculation in these books.

Currently reading Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol

little more than halfway through it, pretty good, but I'll reserve judgement as to which of his books was the best after I'm done.
