Last Books You Read/Books You Are Currently Reading

Since the last one I made is deader than dead (HAHA, FURBALL), here's the revival topic. Simply do what the title says. Please list which part of the book(s) you are at so that we may be able to discuss it/them, as well as author (thanks to dasime for the suggestion).

I AM READING
Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard
Watership Down by Richard Adams

Aaaaaand I have not started either one, but I have them both checked out from my school library.

The last book I read was: One Shot by Lee Child (Jack Reacher is an awesome character)
I am currently reading: Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (A seriously good bit of science fiction so far)

Something I would really like to read is Ouida's 'A Dog of Flanders' just to see how that compares to the many adaptations.
It's Shiraishi, not Shiari. And, yes, let's add this rule as well.

The Eye by Vladimir Nabokov.

Very weird, about a person who commits suicide then watches people as some kind of spirit or something.

This book is kind of over my head but very interesting :/

Never read the book, but Watership Down was a great film. Scarred me for life, it did. But still brilliant.

Something Happened by Joseph Heller and The Memoirs of George Sherston by Siegfried Sassoon, for me

Zero History, by William Gibson
I like the way that William Gibson shows just how sci fi the world we take for granted, every day, really is.

Race and Empire, by Chloe Campbell.
I always try to read as much non-fiction as fiction. Because I want to understand the world as it is, and also dream about the world as it could be.

I stumbled on this one at the library, it's fascinating, about the "eugenics" movement, racism, the idea of "race hygene" and how it affected the British Empire. I was shocked, some of the same ideas the Nazis had the British Empire's thinkers also had.

I recommend both of them.
