Me:

1) Just finished reading Robert Baer's Sleeping with the Devil
2) About to start David Sedaris' Dress your family in corduroy and denim
3) Been reading bits and pieces of Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat, but I find every chapter to be quite repetitive.

Let's see what everyone else is reading right now

I'm now reading Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Lots of swearing, but it is a very good book.  Smile

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

I was loaded the other night and having a conversation with a Palestinian cab driver. He gave me his copy of

The Politics of Dispossession. The Struggle for Palestinian Self-Determination.

Cab drivers are funny. I had one try to give me his Bible last month.

Deception Point, by Dan Brown

Dan Brown is one of my most favourite authors.

I am currently reading The DaVinci Code (yes, I'm late!), I read Angels & Demons, Deception Point and they were all amazing.
