The only problem is I have a bunch of existentialism books and they'd probably fly right over my head at this point. I'm pretty sure I've gotten significantly dumber since graduating.
I never took a course in philosophy in college which I regret. I'm starting to really like it and I'm particularly fond of Baruch Spinoza.

I read periodicals, mostly online. Wall Street Journal, Money Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Bottom Line, Forbes, Time, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and some other stuff here and there.
If you want fictional tales read some of the post on this site!

SGG might have a better answer since he went to law school and he's probably more familiar with law schools overall, even though he didn't go to AU. I know that AU's Washington College of Law has a good reputation, particularly for Int'l Law.

Re: What does everyone read?

I need to read more Kurt Vonnegut. I read Slaughterhouse Five a few years ago and really enjoyed it, and I have Cat's Cradle but I've never gotten around to reading it.

Yeah, I was speaking specifically about AUs Law School. Thanks.

I love that part of town, by the way.

Re: What does everyone read?

Of the books I have actually read, which have mostly been for school-related stuff, The Catcher in the Rye is the one that really stands out in my mind as the most memorable book.

I actually took a Shakespeare class in college to fulfill my literary course requirement, and I really dug some of that stuff. Henry VIII, The Taming of the Shrew, and MacBeth were excellent.

I also liked One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Lord of the Flies a lot.

And then there were kids books, there was an author named Matt Christopher who wrote a book about just about every sport there was. I LOVED "The Kid Who Only Hit Homeruns." You can imagine what it was about. There was a kid, and all he did was hit homeruns. He was my hero in 4th grade!

An author I really hate? Nathaniel Hawthorne. When I read The Scarlet Letter, I was getting so pissed at how thick his verbage was. I had a hard time wading through his diction.

I love Bible quotes and I now love His even more.

I figure when a subject or situation comes up and Jesus says something about it I'll start there with my answer searching.

If any of you wants a Bible and does not have one I will buy one and mail it to you for Free.

~steps down from Pulpit

lol
peace
That's my favorite book too.

Next book I'll read is the Reagan Diaries. My wife bought it for my birthday last week.

I've heard that his writing has made people vomit and/or pass out during some of his public readings, so there's that.

I also just recently read both "Dexter" books by a guy named Jeff Lindsay. If you've ever seen Dexter on Showtime you know the basic story of the books (a serial killer that works for Miami PD forensics and only murders other killers); the books were a good quick read.

Basically I'm a huge movie guy, so I basically started reading the books that my favorite movies are based on. This isn't always the case, but sometimes it's a good way to start reading a good author.

Have your read Choke??? That one blew my mind.

Re: What does everyone read?

Yeah, but I read Choke about 5 years ago and I have trouble remembering it now. I've been thinking about re-reading all of his books.

Fight Club was my favorite but I also really liked Diary.
