The last book I finished was The Social Construction of Reality by Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann. I found it to be much more readable than I had been anticipating.

I just put down a top read of a book. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.
Translated from German in an excellent readable way it tells of a 15 year boy having a sexual relationship with an older woman that goes on to another time when she is on trial for German war crimes. It is in the courtroom where the young man now a law student comes to a point where he has to decide on all aspects of human relationships including his own.

American Psycho. Sickest book I've ever read.

I've got a book waiting to pick up at the library. It's got something to do with the underworld here in Australia. I'm sure to meet some sickos along the way. Eek!

Started reading The Life and Times of Darcy Dugan. He was a well known criminal some years ago. A good read.

Right now, I'm reading a book called "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy" by Eric Metaxas. It's a biography about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German who was involved in the assassination plot of Hitler during the holocaust. It has a lot of detail about Bonhoeffer's life which most people find boring, but I actually like the fact that it's detailed. It helps me to get to know Dietrich Bonhoeffer better.

I have just decided to read Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men', I like reading older books as it is really interesting to explore the history behind the story. I very much liked reading it and would suggest it to others, it is a pretty interesting book about discrimination and loneliness.

I'm currently reading China Lake Chapter 2
Peter Wyoming's church sat close to traffic on a downtown street, beneath a slice of the moon in a sky gone indigo.
The building had originally housed a furniture store, and through showroom windows. I saw a hundred people seated on folding chairs, packed into a bare commercial space under fluorescent lighting.
Music pulsed through the glass. A heavy beat pounded out on piano and electric bass; a heavy beat pounded out on piano and electric bass, ripe with unsettling energy.
