The Book Thief

And though I haven't bought it, I read Lamb: the Gospel according to Biff, Christ's childhhod pal

Its actually quite good. I might reccomend it to my religion teachers (the cooler two, anyway.) Its partly farce, but it does provide an interesting interpretation of Jesus' message that isn't too bad.

Is it just me or is this somewhat redundant given the stickied "what are you reading" thread?

Anywho.

I really need to get some more Cyberpunk. I loved Snow Crash (mostly for the characters) and need to read more.

I don't think so because just like the what DVDs have you purchased or DLed you can buy more then one book and not be reading them all at once which most of the avid readers here do.

Snow Crash isn't too representative about what cyberpunk is about. Another book by the same author that you might like is the Diamond Age. Like Snow Crash but not as funny.

I love cyberpunk. It's probably my favorite "genre" of sf.

I picked up the sexy Barnes & Noble specific edition of The Complete Works Of Lewis Carroll. The only thing it's missing is the illustrations for The Hunting Of The Snark, but for $20, it's nice as hell.

I bought William Gibson's Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive so I can finish reading the Sprawl trilogy. Also got Do Anroids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick on Satan's suggestion and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein off Buki's suggestion and that of this dude from Facebook. Last week I bought Man, State, and Society in the Soviet Union by various authors, edited by Joseph L. Nogee for fifty cents at this charity organization my brother is doing his community hours at.

I forgot to mention that I ordered I, Robot off of Amazon.com today. I could have bought it at Barnes & Noble, but I didn't want a copy with Will Smith on the front. :awesome:
