Othello by William Shakespeare (no, really?!)

Elle et lui by George Sand

I love Othello. Iago's the man. :shifty: Elle et lui is interesting as a psychological study, but it has a pretty boring plot. I've been reading for 30 pages now, and so far all that's happened is the usual guy likes girl, girl doesn't like guy "that way" because she's all liberated, so guy has to try harder to woo her. Oy.

You sound like me, I like to keep 2-4 going for fun. Over 4 is no fun for some reason. My mother always ways "You can only read one at a time" "NO YOU can only read one at a time mumsy."

I have to get that Page one, off I go ordering 'rubs hands briskly.'

:) I can't help it. Most of the times, I want to concentrate on one book only, but depending on the book and on the level of interest I might want to have another one on the side... :D

But as I said, I haven't started the Jimmy's yet. This one will have my one and only attention. For the moment, it keeps company to the other two on my bedside table... :)

Scary, true story, I've read before but still a good read.

Been reading a lot of Douglas Coupland lately. Great Canadian author with a really distict voice and an ability to create characters you can relate to. Just finished Generation X and am now reading Shampoo Planet.

Rolling Thunder Logbook by Sam Shepard Re-issue version,

as useal Im reading more than one book at once, this Ive read before but always love going back to it. It a kinda of diary of Shepards experience on the Rolling Thunder Revue which in my opinion saw Bob Dylan at his all time best. Led Zeppelin even made an appearence at one of the shows not as performers but to watch the show. Would have been great to see them jam with Dylan on stage.

Just finished yesterday Anne Rice's: "The Mummy or Ramses the Damned" (I've probably read it like 12 times already, but it's always a good read).

I'm a big big Rice fan....to bad she's gone somewhat mental in the last decade.

I really miss her vintage Lestat and the whole immortal trop pieces.

Walter Burkert's Greek Religion, which is amazing, Iain Pears' The Dream of Scipio, which is really quite good, and Braudel's Memory and the Mediterranean, which is fabulous.

Thanx Orwell.
