    Aaah, Wittgenstein. I so wish I wasn't busy reading articles about complicated research procedures, that would buy me time to read something as worthwhile as Atterdag's pick.

    Finally finished War and Peace (which was the most epic and awesome book I have ever read. Took me a full 5 months to read it, with some major stops in between) and did a massive report on it too, so I have been taking the month off from reading. I am about to start up on the Count of Monte Cristo.

    Right now I am rereading the book Peter the Great by Robert K. Massie. One of the best biographies I have ever read. Won a Pulitzer too.

    Finished reading Cat's Cradle quite some time ago and I must say that I really liked it. Anyway, I have just started reading The Iliad by Homer, wich is one I've always wanted to read.

    Whose translation, or the original?

    reading... well, Boris Johnson's Dream of Rome and Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game depending on my mood, at present. Heh.

    What am I reading:

    God's War, by Christopher Tyerman (A history of the Crusades, v good)

    A Booke of Days, by Stephen J Rivelle (A ficitonalised first hand account of the First Crusade)

    The Crusader, By Michael Eisner (About the Seventh Crusade)

    There is a bit of a theme here.............!

    Deus Volt!
    The Devshirme
    On the night the scarlet horsemen took him away - from all that he knew and all he might have known - the moon waxed full in Scorpio, sign of his birth, and as if by the hand of God its incandescence split the alpine valley sheer into that which was dark and that which was light, and the light lit the path of devils to his door.

    The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

    Second time I've read it, very entertaining & offers a perspective on the early-mid 1960's not normally seen.
