Just finished "Fallout" the final book in the Crank trilogy by Ellen Hopkins. A little mediocre until the very end. I have to say, the end was incredible. /no spoilers

Now reading "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu

Just a little light reading. Y'know.

Finished "The Art of War". For some reason, military history and tactics just exploded by way of reading appeal. Now I'm reading "The Prince" by Niccolo Machiavelli. Actually, it's part of an anthology of the greatest military writings in history. Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, von Clausewitz, and so on.

FINALLY finished "The Prince". Holy crap, that's a though read. But I enjoyed it. Moving on now to "On War" by General Carl von Clausewitz.

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak.

It's a truly fantastic book so far, very clever.
And they're making a movie currently :)
Think they just started production actually.

Among other things, I'm re-reading some of Edgar Allan Poe's tales, a friend of mine got me a lovely anthology. :)

Remember that the judiciums can be read in any direction, so you still have lines connecting paragraphs

Lucifer's Flood, Book 1 of The Reluctant Demon Diaries (Sounds very much like "Demon" by Tosca Lee ; I need to find out which was based off which)

Just finished The Great Gatsby. I know I'm reading something else, but I cannot remember what?

Les Miserables.

1400+ pages and only 360-some in. Bleck. Definitely not something you just pick up and read. It's not even a very complex plot-line, just a lot of history and pages and pages of military strategy (which I, freakishly, find fascinating).

H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction - when I'm conscious enough at the end of day.

I always felt the The Prince was one of the best resume cover letters I ever read.
