    I'm about halfway through Motley Crue "The Dirt" Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band

    I love it, I want to be a rock star.

    Well, now you know how Donald Trump gets rich!

    I'm currently reading "Beethoven's Hair" by Russell Martin. Very interesting--it's half a biography of Beethoven and half the story of a lock of hair that the young composer Ferdinand Hiller cut from Beethoven's head shortly after Beethoven's death. An intriguing read . . . I'd highly recommend it.

    It's not the same type of book but, have you ever heared of the photographer Sally Mann and her book What Remains?

    I'm reading--don't laugh--Angelina Jolie's journals from her travels to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Ecuador as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. She first contacted the UN High Commissioner for Refugees after working on her movie Tomb Raider made her aware of the land mine situation in Cambodia. She then became Goodwill Ambassador and travelled extensively, encountering, face-to-face, suffering, starvation, and human injustice--these are excerpts of her observations along the way. The prose is compassionate and moving, but simple enough to make me believe she (and not some anonymous ghostwriter) really wrote it. You want some eloquently-written remembrances, read Proust, but if you want to restore your faith that hot women can be heartfelt humanitarians, then read this.

    No, I haven't heard of her. What type of photographer is she in the story? If she works with the police, fbi, or similar, I may be interested.

    I just finished Grave Secrets and a friend let me borrow Deadly Decisions to read next.

    Well, I received yet another novel in school yesterday... Le Vol de la Jaconde. It's a story about how the Mona Lisa (la Jaconde) is stolen from the Louvre and replaced with a fake that is remarkably similar in many ways, almost unnoticeably a copy. It's pretty interesting; the illustrations are pretty bad, though.

    At least it is in French... I'm kinda proud of myself, being able to read a book in French and understanding what's happening.

    Currently reading Zodiac by Robert Graysmith. It's an alright read.

    Was trying to read Slaughter House 5. Could not get into it at all. Didn't care for the writing style I guess. Hopefully will try to get into it again.

    Aw, that's too bad, Junkiegirl, I love Kurt Vonnegut. Sometimes it's just not the right time to read a book, and you pick it up and put it down several times before you're in the mood for it. Give Slaughterhouse Five another chance later on.

    Oops, sorry I missed your thread before, Nausi. Thanks for the suggestion of Margaret Mahy, I'll have to check it out.

    BTW, Nabokov is probably one of my favorite all time authors. I've been loving his work since I was still technically "nymphet" age. "Pale Fire" is not only one of Nabokov's most experimental, it's also one of his wittiest! I also liked "Ada or Ardor," "Pnin," "Transparent Things," "Invitation to a Beheading"--basically any of his works are well worth your while.

    Of course, you'll have to read "Lolita" now, which is still one of my favorite novels--might I suggest getting the annotated version? It really helps you to see just how far down the rabbit-hole Nabokov takes you as a reader. Read it the first time on your own, then the second with the footnotes. You won't be reading it just a once, at least I didn't. This is still my personal idea of a "romance novel." Okay, maybe I'm weird.
