I Thought there should be a thread where we can all could discuss books we are currently reading, recently read, or are planning to read. Feel free to provide your own recommendations/opinions about books you like/dislike.
Right now, I'm reading The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson. It's no Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but still a good read. He hadn't fully developed his Gonzo approach when he wrote it, more Hemingway than Hunter.
