Just finished a really good book by Paul Auster called The New York Trilogy. It's a fairly bizarre postmodern detective story, split into 3 separate volumes that interconnect with each other in various ways. Great book! Just before that I had read a classic called The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz by a Canadian author named Mordecai Richler, and Chuck Palahniuk's Choke.

Next on the list are:

My Name Is Red by Orhan Pamuk
The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
The Wars by Timothy Findley

My mom got to Deathly Hallows before I could.
Damn.
I started reading it recently and I'm almost done.

Oh, and, Mortem- The Hitchhiker series is great.
I'm on Mostly Harmless... I think. :lol:

Right now I'm reading "The Satanic Verses" by Salman Rushdie. Great book so far! Really interesting opening, a bit unexpected. Grabs your attention.
