Electric Don Quixote: The Definitive Story of Frank Zappa By Neil Slaven.

First time I've read it. Seems pretty good so far, but then the only other book on FZ I've read was The Real Frank Zappa.

I am almost finished with Gone With The Wind. I told my Mom I'd read it eventually in my life before she died since it was one of her favorites. Not a bad book! In fact it's pretty interesting. Scarlet isn't painted as a wonderful person in fact she is a downright asshole and I think that is cool that the main character is shown for their flaws.

The Character Rhett is actually quite an interesting guy.

Not a bad read for a "Chic Book"!

I recently finished Mötley Crües "The Dirt" and what a blast that was. Now that I'm back in school all I read is university related.

'The Portable Atheist'.........Christopher Hitchens ed.


fantastic compendium of atheistic writing from Lucretius thru to

sam harris. hitchens writes a killer intro and some small introductions to each piece.

and as a bit of fun the book is bloody huge and hardly portable.
