    Just got a bunch of books from Borders to read:
    1.Monstrous Regiment(a discworld novel) By Terry Pratchett--- SFG, Pratchett is good! British humor like reading Monty Python.
    2. No Phule like an old phule by Robert Aspirin and Peter Heck
    3. Tattoo Blues by Michael McClelland... Mystery set in Florida- sequal to Oyster Blues.
    4 The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocolypse by Robert Rankin... true life crime....ok so I lied... scifi/fantasy

    Will update as I read them.

    OMG, I lurve Monty Python, Ili...I will have to check out Pratchett. Maybe Good Omens will be like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of British goodness.

    Speaking of good British humor, anybody read Stephen Fry? The Hippopotamus and The Liar are such funny, acerbic books, slightly absurdist books.

    Oh but what am I reading now? I finally got the Da Vinci Code--haven't started it yet but wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I'm looking forward to it though, heard a lot of great things about it.

    if you like british humor, I suggest Tom Holt. He is just as good as Terry is. The scene in Good Omens where the 4 horsemen of the Apocolypse end up getting drunk in a bar is good.

    I just finished Catcher in the Rye yesterday (I don't think I got everything out of that book that I should have ) and tonight I got done with Go Ask Alice... SO SAD! I was almost started to cry at the end. Tomorrow I'm either going to pick up Girl, Interrupted or The Color people. Girl, Interrupted would fit in well with Go Ask Alice so probably that one.

    Go Ask Alice! I remember reading that in high school!

    I would try something lighter after that than Girl, Interrupted, though... Too much sadness all at once.

    I'm reading We Were The Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates...for some reason I'm finding it hard going. I'm not a big reader of JCO, with the notable exception of American Appetites, which I loved. After I slog through that one, I'm giving The Tattooed Girl a try.

    I really enjoyd Catcher in the Rye. I read it in college for fun and definitely think one appreciates it more when he/she is a little older.

    I would highly recommend The Color Purple. A very moving book.

    I just finished The DaVinci Code. I had it for about 2 months before I read it. My sons and my mom and sisters all kept telling me to read it, that it was really good. I think it was on a par w/ The Source, one of my all time favorites. I

    SnowflakeGirl - I love "The Hippopotamus!" I've recommended it to many people - it's hilarious, in, as you say, a very acerbic way.

    Good Omens is also one of my favorites - very funny, very fun. Worth a read.
