    So we have a "what are you listening to?" so i thought what about a reading thread?

    I think we have one of these threads... but I'll post here anyway :D

    I'm reading the Bhagavad Gita right now. It's teachings of Krishna and I think it's a Hindu text.

    I just finished Blood Meridian for the 4th time. My favorite book. Everytime I pick it up I get something new.

    I love psychology! I'm reading "Elephants On Acid" a book which studies what happens when you give elephants acid (obviously)

    Hate to say this, but this was serious scientific research (honest!). Anyway as this is a rather depressing book I'm now going to read "Zeno and the tortoise" about a bloke called Zeno who liked to sit on tortoises (maybe)

    i wonder how far he'd get, if the book turns out to be about a bloke sitting on a tortoise :laugh:

    you're cheering me up tonight, thanks.
