    Forrest Gump by Winston Groom. It was pretty decent, I definitely laughed out loud a few times. Lots of words are misspelled, so grammar nazis might not like this, but it's pretty good if you enjoy the movie ( but I must say it is drastically different than the movie in some aspects).

    The Makioka Sisters, by Junichiro Tanizaki
    I finished La reine dans le palais des courants d'air (aka The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest) 2 days ago. I loved it and I'm glad I took my time reading it instead of staying awake the whole weekend like I did with the other two. It's very sad to think that Stieg Larsson will never write another word...

    Even I want to try Roth. I don't want American Pastoral to be my first Roth book, one because it is too huge and two it is very popular. I want to start off with something small. Any suggestions?

    Finished re-read of 2666 by Roberto Bolano.

    That definitely clarified things.

    Clearly diverse, clearly varied, clearly diffuse, and clearly enigmatic. :confused:

    I just finished reading Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open :star5:

    When I started reading it I was a bit worried. I had read so many good reviews that my expectations were very high. I felt like I really really wanted to like this book but what if I didn't? What if I thought it was boring? After the first few lines I knew I would like it and before I had read 10 pages I was completely hooked.
