    I just finished up Alan Moore's Watchmen and Bev Vincent's The Road to the Dark Tower, and now I'm not too sure what I'm gonna read. Anyone have any suggestions?

    America (The Book) - John Stewart.
    Thinking of reading some Vonnegut next. I read Mother Night last week and liked it a lot.

    Hey, I read Mother Night two weeks ago and liked it. I got that and Slapstick for free as hand-me-downs from a relative, but I've been thinking of picking up Cat's Cradle before reading Slapstick.

    Also just finished The Dark Tower VII by Stephen King.

    Currently reading: Pale Fire - Vladimir Nabokov

    Next up? Depends on my mood.
    A trip to the bookstore or,
    Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron - Daniel Clowes
    Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace (will be my second attempt to get into this book if I pick this)
    Vonnegut's Slapstick or Cat's Cradle

    The Face by Dean Koontz

    I keep telling myself that I'm going to start reading more classics. So far, it's not going well.

    I Am Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, for school, but I'm enjoying it.
    I still need to finish The Stand by Steven King, and move on to the last two Dark Tower books.

    Just finished King's The Dark Tower VII last week, and I picked up DT I: The Gunslinger and DT II: The Drawing of Three when I returned it to the library.

    I also picked up The Ice Limit by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I've never heard of them or the book, but it was a last minute pickup before the library closed.

    I got to the library with 15 minutes until closing and they had already turned out the lights in the stacks. Honestly, it's not that big a library, 5 minutes would have been plenty of time.

    Just finished The Catcher in the Rye. Not as good as I remember it from H.S., but still an entertaining read.

    Just started From the Borderlands, a collection of Novellas/Short Stories. I hope to breeze through it, and get started on Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.
