Books I am reading right now…

Thought this would be interesting to chronicle. Just bought a bunch and I can keep them all in here.

Abarat 2: Days of Magic, Nights of War – Clive Barker
– great YA fantasy book. Beautiful illustrations based on the authors painitngs. You know him, he wrote Hellraiser

Everything Bad is Good for You – Steven Johnson
– Great critique on our society’s tendancy to downgrade pop culture’s values. Plus there are tons of stats and psuedo stats.

Sex, Drug, and Cocoa Puffs – Chuck Klostermann
– Haven’t started reading yet, but will soon. Another pop culture criticism.

On Beauty – Zadie Smith
– Was named as a potential “Voice of the times” along with jonathan Safran Foer and a couple otehrs in Newsweek or Time. Haven’t started reading but will soon.
