    I just started Eleanor Henderson's _Ten Thousand Saints_, a novel about lost, stoned, confused kids in the late-80s NYC hardcore scene. It's filled with lovely and sharply observed characters but, man, it just makes me want to take the protgonists home, feed them a good bowl of...

    Let Magic Happen by holistic radiologist Larry

    Burk, MD Not only did I find evidence of the synchronicity between people and events that I've often talked about, I discovered that I tend to think and act in "Indian time", which is a non-linear approach to thinking. I also first read about the technique of Anodyne Imagery...

    I'm reading The Perks of being a wallflower.

    I feel like the author is trying to send the message that you may feel meaningless and alone..but you aren't. And that no matter how small you seem, there is always someone who loves you. I can't wait to know what's gonna be in the end *O*

    A Song Of Ice and Fire

    I'm not really in to fantasy like I was when I was young, but I love this series. I love the characters that Martin makes come to life and the fact that I've been reading it for a couple of months. There's nothing I like more than getting in to an epic story, with lots of...

    The Sea, by John Banville.

    This novel won the 2005 Man Booker prize. The author is Irish but there is nothing in the tale that makes it local - it could be set anywhere. Lots of good writing and pretty sentences, but the story left me flat. I found it quite tedious after about half way through, when the...

    Last summer I read Vladimir Nabakov's book
