Just finished "The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry" by Jon Ronson.. the man who wrote "Men Who Stare at Goats". Fascinating book really, mainly because of this crazy notion you can checklist psychopaths and label with a ham handed test! Its called the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. A lot of information here on several associated subjects.

I'm about 1/2 way through The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three. It's pretty freaking kooky, but I like.

Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story - Arnold Schwarzenegger

It is definitely interesting. A lot of people didn't know that Arnold was already a budding real estate tycoon before he ever got in to movies. He also ran his own construction business with Franco Columbo and was an avid college student taking courses at multiple colleges to avoid visa restrictions. He also helped with the initial studies that lead to weight lifting being a sanctioned sport in the Special Olympics.

It isn't the greatest example of modern writing. It feels a little too one sided and leaves out some things that would be interesting. Overall it is a good read even if it feels a bit shallow at times.

Read this before, but its a great book, so I'm rereading. A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Just curious....does anyone else reread their favorite books? My husband thinks I'm insane when I keep books, but I do reread them.

I don't anymore...but I used to and maybe I will again in the future, when I am old(er)...now I only re-read those I read to my son...now there is a HUGE pleasure for you to look forward, sharing your favourite books with your child. I bought my son the LOTRs trilogy for Christmas, and was really looking forward to reading them again, sharing them with him...but that didn't even cross his mind, he began straight away to read the first alone. I was sad for a moment, and then I thought, how awesome is that, my nine year old son reading something I didn't even dare approach until I was an adult.

My cup runneth over

I am currently reading 'Fairy Tales' by Hermann Hesse. It is funny, as one progresses as a reader, you come across writers who touch you just in the way that you want/need to be touched at that moment in your journey. Hesse takes my breath away, it is like coming home to myself. Such a gift.

Yesterday I was thinking of that question of if you could have dinner with so many people from history, who would you choose. Right now, just Hesse would do me...no one else need apply.
