What book are you reading at the moment?
Currently I'm reading Hell's Angels by Hunter S Thompson, which is really good, I have read his other works Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (obviously), and The Rum Diary, which was excellent and amazed that he was just 21 when he wrote that.

After that I might continue to read Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, but I have quite a few other books to get through, Mr Nice, and Bringing Down the House: How Six Students Took Vegas for Millions being two of them.

So what book have or are you reading?

I'm reading another book on Dario Argento. This one's pretty elementary stuff, but there are some interesting interviews with people who've worked with him. Apparently he's an asshole to everyone within a two year period of meeting them.

I also am currently reading "The Da Vinci Code", picked up an early edition paperback (2003) for $5 at a used book store. How far are you into it (chapters please, no spoilers)? I plan to be finished by the end of the week but that can change fast.

The DaVinci Code is such an easy read.  Great book!  I was fortunate enough to finish it the day before I visited the Louvre in Paris, and it made it all the more interesting.  Can't wait for the movie, as long as the authors of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" don't f**k it up.

So do you think the United Nations is subverting America?  How So?

Do you think that because countries like the U.K. and other European is multi-cultural and is always readily accepting different religions is slowly becoming an Islamic state or as the author put it a Eurabia or as Claire Berlinski calls our country Londonstani?

Do you feel that all the different religions around the world that do not accept the Christian faith and Jesus Christ as the saviour are all demonic, and that because of Europe’s so called decline of Christianity is caused by the Europeans being anti-American and anti-Semitic?

Also do you agree with Claire Berlinski in her book called Menace in Europe, that a united Europe is a fantasy, and it could be a crises for the United States?

Do you feel that you are getting the whole picture of how the world really is by reading these books?

Floyd, I'm not gonna quote the c**p you typed because you are labelling me through your rhetorical questions. That is incredibly dishonest. The post you started in the Forums was: What book are you reading at the moment? It happens to be the three I supplied at YOUR request. So pay better attention to what you read and print. And don't assume you know anything about me or what else I read or view other than what I have given you. And by the way, I believe the United States should withdraw all funding from the U.N. and let it relocate to Europe or wherever the hell they want to place that worthless institution.

I'm not attacking you personally, I'm just interested in your opinions as you are reading a couple of right wing conservative books, I was just wondering if you agree with any of the points (not c**p because a lot of right wing conservatives to feel that way), that the authors of the books have made have made?

cool which ones?  

You peeps can also put down what comic books you're reading.

It would be cool if companies like DC or Marvel, published a definative collection of their superheros, which include major plot points and the first time the characters/villans first appeared, I think it would be ideal for say like the X Men.

"Who goes there?" I always wanted to to read the book because John  Carpenter's The Thing was based on it.

*sniffs*

Been reading Bukowski's 'Women'.

No stranger to my bookshelf, I've had it for years and it's just sat there with it's spine to my face begging me to pick it up.

Post Office is great.

Factotum, is not as good, but fine.

Women, is excellent.
