What is the last book you read?

The Father of Spin: Edward L. Bernays by Larry Tye

Name your 3 favorite books and one that was just a big disappointment

Okay. so I'm not reading for the sake of scholarly learning (that is - no war and peace or stuff like that :) ) 1. Just about any book by Chuck Palahniuk. My favorite so far was Monster 2. When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management 3. The Bicycling Guide to Complete Bicycle Maintenance & Repair Book that was a big disappointment: A clockwork orange - it was not bad but I honestly thought the movie was better. Bonus: Book that I thought I would not like but ended up liking Love in the time of cholera

Have you ever re-read a book because it was just so good?

Yes. Red Dragon - freaky but very well researched by Harris

Who is your favorite childhood author?

judy blume - of course!
