    Rate the Last Book You've Read

    We have one of these for movies and I figured at least some of the posters here are interested in good literature so I figured I'd make a thread for people to talk about their favorite books that they've read recently

    The last three I recall were this June and last January.

    Night by Elie Wiesel- 8/10
    Into The Wild- 10/10
    A Clockwork Orange- Way cooler and freakier than the movie.. and that's one of my favorites of all time. 10/10.

    3 great books, bucky!

    skinny dip by carl hiassen... 8/10

    very funny and entertaining. it was an easy and quick read. kind of predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless. i've heard good things about hiassen's other work (minus his kids' books) so i think i'll check out some more of his catalog.

    You better have put this up even if I would have put "The Cat In The Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and Hop on Pop" because I swear.. before those last three I rated, those were the last ones

    I'm not big on reading, so you better be proud of me.

    taht bok wuz sew osm cuz it haz lyk 512 paygez!

    (I know it's sad I know it has that many pages. But my friends have been bragging about how they read a 512 page book.. I think that's why people are being hooked onto this. It's 512 pages that make them feel special.)

    you know what's great to do during a book that's boring that you don't want to read?

    everyone 100 pages, light one up, take a few rips, whatever..

    get back to reading.. soon enough, the book is about a pony banging a frog.

    I ended up reading like 78 pages and then lied that I finished the book
    the gayest and the most confusing book I have ever read

    Last book I read was A Confederacy of Dunces ... dragged in a few parts but really came together at the end as all the different character's storylines began to merge into each other. And Ignatius C. Reilly was truly a brilliant & hilarious character. Prob a 7.5/10 in my book, no pun intended.

    Reading Liar's Poker now... still only about 30 pgs in. Interesting so far.

    Also really loved The Frog King, The Brief & Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao, and A Thousand Splendid Suns ...all of which i read probably within the last year I believe!!
