I dunno, everything I haven't read yet I suppose. In the immediate future it's Bill Bryson, and Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez.

I'm in the middle of Snow Crash and the new Thursday Next book.
I got bored with them both. Actually, I fell asleep in the middle of the former, and want to start reading it again at some point soon so I actually understand what's going on.

as for the latter, I just don't think I could be bothered finishing it.

others on my to read list include:

Chart Throb - Ben Elton
The Gulag Archipelago - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Dark Tourist - Dom Joly
The Left Hand of God - Paul Hoffman

Tell me about it. I decided life was too short, and took it back to the library. Maybe another time.

My mom read it and passed it on to me. She said it's more of the same, but still funny. :D

I enjoy them, but I honestly couldn't tell one from another :lol:

And one thing that bothers me, I just don't fancy Ranger :( He seems like a bit of a tool to me.

Maybe because he's kind of a flat character? All mystery, no personality.

I dunno. But Joe Morelli is sexy, he's just got something about him. Maybe I just don't like men with ponytails who say "yo" when they answer the phone :lol:
