Let's return this thread to live, shall we? I'm currently going through Mrs Dalloway for the erm, 3rd time I think. And just finished reading Doris Lessing's The Fifth Child, which turned out to be a bit disappointing.

I'm reading 3 books at the moment.

First, I'm enjoying this book about Springsteen's "Born To Run" album:

I'm also reading this book, to improve my brain:

God, I should feel ashamed. I'm French and have a degree in French literature but never read L'étranger :roll: :lol:

Is it any good?

I read that one a while ago, to improve my brain too:

It was a very interesting read but I've never really managed to "put it in practice"... :|

Thanks for the tip, I might read that as well!

I'll let you know about "The Mind Map Book" when I've advanced a bit... too soon to tell.

I read some Camus in English before. "La Peste" was my favourite (and it's also on my list to read in French).. I already have the next 6 books or so, which include Houellebecq, de Beauvoir, Sartre, Balzac & Francoise Sagan. You had some decent writers over there!

Ugh, I had to read that book in 1994 in my 1rst year in the University. At that time I considered so boring (I was 17).

I first read it when I was 18 or 19, and quite liked it, but La Peste is much much better.
La Chute is the one I had trouble with.

What Book Are You Reading?

Post by MsMagicAmerica » 20 Jan 2016, 07:08

Unless, I'm blind (well it is 2am, so chances are I might be) I couldn't find a What book are you reading thread.

So, if there isn't one (& as I just created a new thread, I hope there isn't one) here's a thread for books you are currently reading or books you recently read.

Currently I am "reading" (rather listening to the audio book) Carrie Fisher's book Shockaholic

Image

It's hysterical! She talks about everything from her stepfather's farthing, Michael Jackson, Ted Kennedy, etc... You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to read it.

I'm a fan of audio books as my ADD makes it a bitch to pay attention.

"The Casual Vacancy" by J.K. Rowling. I liked her detective stories written under Robert Galbraith pseudonym, so I decided to give it a shot despite the mixed review. 100 pages in, I think I will read it until the end, the overall premise is not yet clear but the heroes are well-written, that's promising.

David Stubbs - Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany

I started reading it a while ago but stopped in the days before Christmas before resuming this week. Very fascinating stuff. A lot more to krautrock than I thought.

Kill Your Friends by John Niven. I haven't seen the movie yet, but if it's anywhere close to how funny this book is, I'll enjoy it. Also, lots of Britpop references.
