I am just beginning "His Excellency" by Joseph J. Ellis, which is a biography of George Washington.

Re: So...what is everybody reading now? (part Deux)

Thats an awesome book Thompson rules. I just finished "as used on the famous Nelson Mandela" by Mark Thomas all about how deeply fucked up British legislation on control of the arms trade is, highly recommended, and just started "Have I Got Views For You" by the great Boris Johnson.

Re: So...what is everybody reading now? (part Deux)

I'm currently reading "Eldest" by Christopher Paolini. I watched Eragon the other week and liked it enough to get the books... they're turning out much better.

Still waiting on the next Harry Potter book.
