last few books i've read...



bought this book because i enjoyed "women" by bukowski and because this book had good reviews. anyways, this book sucked dick. it started off pretty funny because of bukowski's crude voice... but there really was no story or character development. i could see how a 16 year old virgin who hasn't really lived yet could find this book interesting, but after the first few chapters this story becomes so stagnant.

I was just about to pick up 'Post Office' and 'Ham on Rye'. I'll have to read it myself to see if I really enjoy it myself.


Found this while cleaning my house. Going to try and finish it up. Left off on it about 1/3 of the way through. It's like reading a text book, but it's still great if you like reading philosophy books.

For any of y'all tryna stack your paper. I'm 200 pages in, and I love it. Jason Zweig applies Graham's logic to the 1991-2002 bull-bear market cycle (read this book to find out what the hell that means). If you ever plan on investing in stocks or bonds, this is THE book you should read beforehand. Take your time while trying to wrap your head around the terminology. I'm sure if you're a finance major in college, any respectable professor will assign this book for an upper-level course on investing.

Watching American Gangster and Wall Street beforehand helps.
