Well Janne, Jeannie and jhowton, I found my motivation today
At the first couple of pages it needed some 'adjusting to' but I'm about halfway now
Liberal Facism - Jonah GOldberg. Pretty boring, may quit reading it soon. Non-fiction book that is heavy on political history.
I'm always reading some book of Chrichton's. He's my favorite author and I can re-read his things over and over and over again.
Pick up a copy of State of Fear. It will get you thinking.

Homages are great. So are the real things. Watches win, in my book.
Parliament of Whores - P.J. O'Rourke
Hysterically funny and as applicable today as it was 28 years ago when I first read it.

I've been trying for some time to develop a lifestyle that doesn't require my presence.- Garry Trudeau
Time has little to do with infinity and jelly donuts. - Lt. "Mac" McReynolds
I finished reading 'Wuthering Heights', not really what I had expected from it, I thought it would be much more of a classic lovestory than this.
Went back to the store to pick up something 'new' -> Dr. Zhivago, by Boris Pasternak, €1,25
I just finished reading "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova. Wasn't quite what I thought it was when I got it. Maps in the front and back covers that say COLD WAR EUROPE. Hardback I got from a thrift shop (along with my fixer-upper Benrus) and it was missing its cover, so I took it. Last thing I was expecting was a story about vampires and Dracula. I made myself read it. Better than I expected, but I still would've preferred a war story!
I have now moved on to Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina". So far, easy reading-- but then I am only about 20 pages deep.
