In the vein of the "listening to" thread, I figured I would pose a reading thread to compliment.

Plus there is a good chance that more "they read books" jokes would re-surface.

On the plate:

"The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson and "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" by George Carlin

The first is for the Metro and the second is for the Throne.

Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift.
Read it before, but it's so good that it warrants another read; highly recommend it.

Just finished Rant by Chuck Pahlaniuk.
Now reading: Snuff by C Pahliniuk (written within the minds of three participants in a 600 man video gangbang shoot!) and The Party is Over (about peak oil and the end of the oil era).

I need to read some more Pahlaniuk. I finally read Fight Club a few months ago. So Rant is pretty good?

Done with Devil in the White City. Anyone who digs history and serial killers I highly recommend it. Basically it covers the Chicago World's Fair and a sociopath who preyed on laides in the area...the American Jack the Ripper so to speak.
