Anyone read any decent books lately? Drifting from my usual sci-fi/fantasy kick, I've just read a really good book named 'A Prayer for Owen Meany', by John Irving. It was pretty long, but worthwhile. It's a good read.

Hey Keats. and yes, you should. Expand that beautiful brain of yours.

P.S. Reading Justin Timberlake lyrics doesn't count as reading.

Noting wrong with that.
Oh, and read "A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius" by dave Eggars. It's seriously odd - keeps changing format and has many appendices - and long, but it's SO worth it. Read the introduction and appendices too. It's very funny and equally sad.

I'm reading Catch-22 at the moment, and I love it. I'm glad it wasn't a set text this year or it would have killed some of my enjoyment of it.

You said this was a geekish thread, so I have a geekish book:

Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow

Its sci-fi, but not hardcore, more like William Gibson or Neal Stephenson. Even if you don't like the genre, though, its an entertaining read.

I don't know anything about anime, so I can't reccomend anything there.
