I have a tendency to read a lot of books at once, so unfortunately I don't finish them all Tongue.

Currently there's Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky

I've got a lot on my reading plate also, but it doesn't include Saul Alinsky. this is a recap of stuff I've posted previously as well as other books:
The Choice by Bob Woodward (almost half-way)
Atlas Shruggedby Ayn Rand (over half-way)
Life by Keith Richards (about one fifth or fourth done)
Known and Unknown by Donald Rumsfeld (Like a tenth done)

I've got that one. Haven't read it, though.

Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World

Another good one. I found it pretty interesting. I usually use it as a reference book.

It's about organization, it's a lot more interesting than I would have given it credit for.

I'm now reading Hunger by Knud Hamsun, the Norwegian author. It's the current book of the Literary Society of my university.

Despite being over a century old, it is ridiculous how accurate to the experience it describes the book is in places. Pity about the author, you know, being a Nazi and all that.

Yeah, that aspect of Hamsun is obviously less palatable. Although from what I recall reading about it he wasn't really a Nazi by Hitler standards, but more of a general conservative fellow who was too naive to bother with what the Nazis were actually up to.

But it's always good to remember that great artists don't necessarily have any political judgement. At all.

Just finished Animal Farm in one sitting. Very easily comparable to most of the history of the Soviet Union might I add.

I'm about a third of the way through John Adams by David McCullough.  Debating whether or not to buy 1776 when I'm finished.

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon.  I am ashamed it's taken me this long to get to it; it's been on my shelf for a solid four years now.

The Prodigal Daughter, Jeffrey Archer

Book club, not exactly a taxing read - but the closest thing to a 'popcorn' author until Dan Brown came along
