I'm reading Carl Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark. I highly recommend it

I was reading Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for a school project until May 30th when I finally finished it.  It is certainly a good read, but it supposed to be for 10th graders and up, or something like that.  I'm not surpised people were trying to ban it.

I generally have at least three books I'm reading at the same time. Right now, sitting on my desk is:

The Subtle Knife, Phillip Pullman
Changes, Jim Butcher
Princeps Fury, Jim Butcher
First Lords Fury, Jim Butcher(The man is a genius)
A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking

And, perhaps most importantly, Uncle John's Awe-Inspiring Bathroom Reader, The Bathroom Reader Institute.

My desk is not exactly organized. I wouldn't be surprised to find the original charter for the Mayflower floating around in a drawer somewhere.
As a form of protest, I refuse to make a signature...

The book is ALWAYS better than the movie. There's even a section of the Harvard bookstore (or some other bookstore in Boston) called that!

Ooh, I love that book! I have it in Mandarin for some reason. I thought it was very nostalgic for some reason.

Since I'm a young person, I read kid books. Currently, I'm reading a book I just randomly found called the doom machine, and also started the Artemis Fowl series. Also trying to get hold of that new Lost Hero book. I've heard it was good...

Please give me internets! So much less bulkier than those eggs.

Help spread the word about the word smorent! Definition: [smohrent] adj. fluffy. In a sentence: that bear is very smorent.

Currently Reading Ian McEwan's Atonement for school.  It has some interesting content, but I'd enjoy it more if it weren't required reading.  I really don't read anything that isn't required anymore.  I tried reading Brisingr but couldn't get into it, and haven't picked anything up since.
