Do you read regularly. I mean novels and short stories, not the internet. Just finished Stephen King's The Dark Tower series and am now reading Catcher in the Rye.

What about you?

I think I read too much for my own good. I've always got a book [or two] in my hand. I also like to read magazines, short stories, and poetry. We come to learn so much from active reading.

I am currently reading Don't Think of an Elephant! and 50 Ways You Can Help Obama Change America. Good books.

I generally read Sci-Fi and fantasy books like Artemis Fowl or the Inheritance Cycle.

I read a good Superman-Batman novel called Enemies and Allies recently.

I read way too much.

I haven't read a full-fledged book by my own accord since finishing A Practical Guide to Racism in August. It's quite an insightful read if you can get past the title. Below is an excerpt from the first chapter, Hispanics: A Practical Guide to Fecundity:

Okay, now I know this was a thread... somewhere. Well, whatever.

I'm not really reading anything right now, except for 1984 for school. I want to read The Lost Symbol and few other books, though.

Brian, this is an exercise in self-control. Highlighting the below text will spoil the remainder of 1984 for you.

Winston finally succumbs to the Party's absolute control by coming to the realization that "he loved Big Brother" just before his implied execution. O'Brien is actually a government agent who imprisons and tortures Winston and Julia, the latter of whom is never heard from again.

Can you contain yourself?

I've almost always got a book lying around somewhere that I'm somewhere in the middle of. For example, right now I'm reading the fourth book in R.A. Salvatore's Legend of Drizzt series. I like to read just about any fantasy or science-fiction book, which is good because I have this one friend who always lends me books, and those are the only kinds of books he has.

After having read what I just wrote, I must ask you to please forgive the sloppiness of this post. I'm waaay too tired right now to actually write anything coherent, so I'll try editing this post tomorrow when I'm more awake.

Well now I never have to read 1984.

My turn to make a self-control exercise.

Everyone, this is an exercise in self-control. Highlighting the below text will spoile the Dark Tower series for you.

DT1: Roland lets Jake die.
DT2: When Jake died in this world, he was pushed into the street by a man in black. Not the man in black. Which is how he got to Roland's world.
DT3: Jake comes back to life.
DT4: Roland kills his mom. He saw Rhea (evil witch) in a mirror, turned around, shot her four times, and it turned out to be his mother and not Rhea.
DT5: THE WOLVES ARE ROBOTS.
DT6: Roland is the father of Susannah's baby.
DT7: Roland gets to the top of the tower. He opens the door to the room at the top. When he opens it, he sees a desert. He is sucked inside there, and he ends up back in the desert, chasing the man in black, where the first book begins. So he has to start all over again.
Little Sisters of Eluria: The nurses are vampires.
