Hey, What Are You Reading This Weekend?

Sat Mar 05, 2011 2:15 am

I was in the mood for some escapist fare, and picked up "A Dark Matter" by Peter Straub. Hope it scares me witless.

And what are you reading?

Stephen King's "Salem's Lot" for my English class. It's actually pretty good.

Working through "Unreliable Sources : How the 20th Century was reported", by John Simpson, the BBC's Chief foreign affairs correspondent who is in Libya at the moment. Interesting to see how the media developed, in the UK mostly.

The C.I.A. and the U-2 Program: 1954-1974

A monograph by the Center for the Study of Intelligence at the Central Intelligence Agency. Kind of amusing to read through a PDF filled with blanked out parts and NOFORN stamps all over the place

"Wise Man's Fear", the sequel to 2007's, "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. I've been waiting for this book forever, and I cannot put it down.

It may be the best set of books (the third in the trilogy will come out in a couple of years, I'd imagine) I've ever read, and I've literally read thousands of books.

Sounds great; can you give us a hint of what it's about? Thanks.
