The Bell Jar by Sylvia plath. very easy and engrossing read. about 150 pages in. I think she has a bad rep among male readers but I'm liking this quite a bit. I think it's introspective and self obsessive style will be appreciated by several other ISH reader as well.

I'm finding it hard to finish Atlas Shrugged. This book should be like 400 pages shorter if Rand had cut out all these repetitive monologues and portions of dialogue. How many times does she have to write these straw-man arguments for the anti-capitalist usurpers? The only time I find myself enjoying it at this point is when Fransisco is involved. I'm getting bogged down in the middle but I'm hoping there is at least a strong build up in the narrative towards the end.

Between a rock and a hard place by Aron Ralston.

I watched the film adaptation, 127 Hours, and I thought it was incredible. I knew I had to read the book. I'm only about 1/5th of the way through, but I'm really enjoying it so far.

After this, I'm not sure what I'm going to move on to, but I've read quite a few autobio's and bio's lately and I'm a bit bored of it. So I'm gonna try and move on to some fiction.

i read the bell jar around 10 years ago. geared more towards women only because the protagonist is female. i remember enjoying it very much nonetheless.
