What are you reading?
« on: Dec 10, 2009, 03:08:58 PM »
Don't know how well this will go over here, but lets give it the old college try anyhow.


Currently I am reading Moonraker by Ian Fleming.

Ha ha, I remember a thread like this one.  Did you start that one, too?

Since this thread's here now, looks like I have to own up to my latest hobby: reading cheesy Harlequin novels.
I just finished The Winter Bride by Lynne Graham.  Although WB was actually mostly decent.

If I start reading Bond, do I need to start with the first book or can I just pick at them in any order?

I don't think I did...but I may have.

And you never struck me as the romance novel type, but hey if it makes you happy I'm not one to judge.

Well...he does back reference some, but not a lot. I didn't read them in order. Before I bought them I got what I could from the local library. I would start with Casino Royale though. It's one of the better ones, but has a drawn out ending. Book is over at Chapter 22 even though it's 27 chapters long. Then you'd have to get past the overt racism of Live and Let Die. I mean he never comes out and says it, but it's full of "Well he's a fine chap for a Negro" type shit. And he kinda treats women like children and homosexuals as evil and untrustworthy. And he seems to hate red headed men for some reason. You just have to keep telling yourself it was the 50s. It's a little jarring to modern sensibilities. I'd read them in order just to get all that shit out of the way. If you are still with it after that you'll read them all.

Sneaky Kid and Its Aftermath: Ethics and Intimacy in Fieldwork  by Harry Wolcott.

The story initially begins in the early 80's. Professor Wolcott was big stuff in world of anthropology back then.  He lives on 20 acres of forested property he owns in Oregon.  One day he discovers a 19 year old squatter, who he refers to as Brad, living on his property.  Brad had dropped out of society and had built a cabin.  For the next two years Wolcott studies Brad a self described "sneaky kid."  Brad got by on food stamps and stealing the things he needed.  Brad problems began when his parents divorced and he was tossed back in forth because he didn't get along with either step-parent.  He lost interest in school, skipped out, and was eventually sent to reform school. Upon his release he lived in a series of apartment rented by his mom and worked a few second rate job.  He eventually turned his back on society.  Wolcott concluded that once Brad left the system (school, work, family, friends) there was no one helping him to return to society.  There was no organization or agency to help him.  If Brad was going to return to society it was going to have to be through his own efforts.  Brad is one unique case but there are thousands of people like him who have drifted away from society.  Wolcott wrote several papers about Brad.   


One day Brad disappeared.  Two year later Brad returned, attempted to murder Wolcott and his partner, and burned Wolcott's home down.  It turns out Wolcott and Brad had a sexual relationship! Brad felt violated and victimized and sought revenge.  Brad was sentence to 20 years in prison.   While nothing happened to Wolcott who I personally feel should have suffered some repercussions for his serious breach of ethics.  This case is why there are strict rules in place when conducting research and why all research has to be approved by an Ethics Review Board.

Ha ha, "happy" may not be quite the right word, but they are definetely entertaining.  Granted, I've found a handful that I really love but there are a LOT of losers to wade through for lulz.  Apparently, there are a hell of a lot of billionaires out there in need of virgin wives.

I am reading tariff reports from 1917. See, despite us being allies in World War I, America levied a steel embargo against Japan (they depended on us for all their steel). All this because of the Zimmerman telegram. Why the hell would the Germans believe they could barter an alliance between Mexico and the Japanese? They don't even like each other. Stupid Germans.
I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes;
We been running for awhile. Why don't you lay dow, I'll make you smile.
I could never ask for nothing better than this;
It's just tequila and the beach, it's quite salty when we kiss.

Wouldn't it be cool it you pushed the middle of the book and a smaller book came out?


Oh, I'm also reading the Fullmetal Alchemist manga.  I count that even though I'm looking at the pictures more.  :D

Well I know a guy and if you serious and got about 300 clams, he can stick a coat hanger up there and scramble the little book all up and then scrap it out so the bigger book can get back to partying and having unprotected sex.

Was I supposed to be picturing a wang being slammed into a book?  Furthermore, even though you said "unprotected sex" the one I pictured was wearing a condom.

I just finished such fine literary works like The Sicilian's Marriage Arrangement and The Greek Tycoon's Convenient Mistress.  The second one has three stars at Amazon so I wasn't expecting a whole lot from it anyway, but I only read the first one because seven people had rated it a five.  Apparently, they were very, very wrong.

For the curious, yeah, it doesn't matter what these guys are.  You can replace the words Sicilian and Greek for Martian and Canadian and it'd still be the exact same story.

Oh, that reminds me, I finished 1984. Mindfuck. Did I mention that already? Now working on GI Joe classic comic re-releases IDW is putting out. I would be working on the Transformers G1 comics they just put out, but I didn't get V1 when it was first released, and now its going for ridiculous prices (last time I checked, about a month ago, $80+).
