Thread: What are you reading?

    What are you reading?

    Do people out there still read?

    I've been going fairly light for the last couple of months, giving myself a bit of time off the heavier stuff - been reading (and in some cases re-reading) the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. It's a bit up and down in places but on the whole I've enjoyed it. I'm trying to read through a lot of the stuff that I've bought and never got around to reading, so now that I've finished I've picked up Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon. I know he died before it was finished and I've not really read too much that just ends, so no idea how I'll feel about that when I get there.

    Anyway, what have you been reading lately?

    Right now I'm reading "Black Boy" by Richard Wright. I believe Native Son was a required reading in HS, but I can't remember. "Black Boy" is a very vivid tale of life in the Jim Crow south. Only four chapters in, and he hasn't even made it past age 9 in the narrative yet, and he has already been through a lot.

    You only bought it for the articles, right?

    I recently finished an old Victorian novel that I had lying around, by M.E. Braddon. Was quite good, but as is typical of a lot of stories from that period it finished with a pretty syrupy ending, so a bit of a let down at the end. Now I'm reading a Stephen King novel that I was bought for Christmas some years ago and that I just threw on the shelf and forgot about, called Duma Key.

    Actually, I forgot to mention, I'm illiterate.

    I have my mother type for me.
