Currently reading Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Pretty eye opening, to say the least.

I learned that there is a lot more pretty creepy stuff in development in labs across the world than I was aware of. Some awesome, most creepy. Interesting read though.

I've always been really into more classical literature, with exception to the 30s-60s work of people like Hexley, Orwell, Fitzgerald, and what not.
There was a sale at the local neighbourhood bookstore this week, and I decided to treat myself to buying a few books after completing spring classes this Friday, as it had been nearly a year since I've read a book for fun.
The leather-bound book is merely a collection of stories from Welsh poet/author, Dylan Thomas (the person behind the reason for Bob Dylan changing his last name to 'Dylan'. I got Catch-22, because I'm really into literature involving war, and it is considered one of the all-time greats. I also want to start reading some Russian literature; the bookstore had three volumes of 'War and Peace' by Tolstoy in these beautiful red leather-bound hardcovers, but it was $270, - 40%. A little steep. I don't know my Russian lit all too well, so I went with a familiar name in Chekhov. Any recommendations from some of you more well-read posters would be very much appreciated.

For the Sins of my Father
I just finished this book. It's a great autobiography about Albert DeMeo and his father Roy DeMeo, who was a notorious mafia boss. The public portrayed his dad as a murderous monster, but the son saw him as a loving family man. DeMeo was a very compassionate person towards his family, wild animals, and friends, but he chopped up and murdered many people who owed him money. The first half was heartwarming, but the second half was very dark . The father went out of his way to protect his family from the mafia life (which ultimately leads to his death) and made his son promise not to follow his footsteps. It's definitely a great read for father's day.
Oh yeah, I recommend reading the Wikipedia biography of him first.

An item made out of paper, with words on each page. Or something your mom tried reading to you when you were little but couldn't. Illiteracy's a bitch.

This Is How You Lose Her
A series of short stories about love and love lost. It was pretty good but I think I might have missed some details because I haven't read Oscar Wao yet.

Game of Thrones. I burned through the first three books, but I'm stalling out on book four.
