What I'm Reading Now

I made a run to the library the other day and stocked up on some books I'd been looking to read:

Bastard Out of Carolina
by Dorothy Allison

This book, what I call "bookclub fiction", had been recommended to me by a friend, because it takes place in a town near to where I live now.

The Castle in the Forest: A Novel
by Norman Mailer

This is a fictionalized account of Hitler's childhood, with psychological speculations as to why Hitler turned out the way he did.

11 Days in December: Christmas at the Bulge, 1944
by Stanley Weintraub

This book is about the Battle of Bastogne.

by Elie Wiesel

A classic I'd never gotten around to reading.

Following below are some books that I want to read that I have yet to find either at the library or the bookstore. All of these books are about politics.

The Conscience of a Liberal
by Paul Krugman

The Conservatives Have No Clothes: Why Right-Wing Ideas Keep Failing
by Greg Anrig.

Nanny State: How Food Fascists, Teetotaling Do-Gooders, Priggish Moralists, and other Boneheaded Bureaucrats are Turning America into a Nation of Children
by David Harsanyi
