For the last few years I have been making my way through the 'Discworld' series by Terry Pratchett. I have now read over 20 of those fuckers, and am finishing up 'Carpe Jugulum'. The books are fairly repetitive plot-wise, but always delightful and highly addictive. The main trigger is Laughter. In the one I am reading now it is Witches Vs. Vampires. The author writes mostly dialogue, and it amazes me how these characters come alive. He really is a master at it.

Now that is one book I am looking forward to! After I finish Discworld, I will get into that. A few months ago I read the beginning in my local Bibliotek, and was instantly transported. While chuckling to myself in a maniacal glee, I put it back on the shelf with a friendly little pat: saving You for later...

Scarlet Letter
Streetcar Named Desire
The Great Gatsby
Death of a Salseman

I've read those a while a go now, but still, worth to read Wink
I strongly recommend Salesman's Death

I am currently reading the Memoirs of Casanova. A delirious affair. I also reread Soul Music by Pratchett- some tight writing there.

Jonas Jonasson - Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann
Great feel-good book, one of the best and funniest I've ever read (up till now only in Swedish)

Albrecht Dürer - 576-pages cataloguebook for a 2003 exhibition in Wien (the biggest one ever about Dürer)
http://www.highlightzone.de/buch/duerer.html
Very interesting cataloguebook that I got in a 2nd hand bookshop. Not only describing pictures, but also giving a background on them (why they were made, what odyssey they had until they were bought by their final owner, and the discussions around the pictures as well as describing some painting/carving techniques at times. Very interesting read. Hopefully in 2012 there will be a great Albrecht Dürer exhibition in Nürnberg again.

Some more Terry Pratchett for me: now it is 'Jingo'(1997), almost finished. Before that: 'House By The Churchyard' (1863) by JS Le Fanu- a rather forgotten Irish author, yet one of the best, from a special period of romantic/gothic/weird/sensationalist serialised fiction with an historic twist. This was the 7th book of his that I have read, and all on my mobile, downloaded from the Gutenberg site.

Been going to Barns and Noble lately to pickup new readin material for my daughter.

So I've also picked up a few about some of my favorite artists.

Tony Iommi - Iron Man, rough read but some interesting insite
Keith Richards - Life, Enjoyed it a great deal
Cliff Burton - To live is to die, good book but repeats itself a little bit through out. Many first hand quotes from people close to him outside the band.

Murder in the Front Row photo collection from Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew. Simple to say just awsome collection.

The latter two were really good together as Harald and Brian were quoted several times throughout to Live Is To Die. When they are talking about some instance in the book you can see what photos they have in Murder in the Front Row about said event.

BTW they are still selling copies of ODIR and they look to be moving. Smile

I'm always reading, with many books on the go. I put one down, sometimes for months, pick up another & so on. I usually finish everything, except for the odd one here & there. I wrote on the Album thread how I've been reading Black Metal: The Evolution Of The Cult & I'm still not finished. I've got a little bit left. It's 600 pages & apparently there is a sequel. Couple this with musical immersion into every band that he writes about (Yes, I'm a 'full glass' kind of guy) & this goes on for months. The Forum members can rest assured that I now worship Satan as my sweet Lord. I noticed the change in my perception after rewatching Rosemary's Baby. The first time, 20 years ago, I left the film in horror- staring at my Occult books & wondering if I was indeed, the spawn of the Evil One. After the 2nd viewing my reaction was that Rosemary was blessed: 'This is so cool. Now she can raise Satan's child!".
Very Happy
