Oy, ol Ben was a rowdy one, definitely a free thinker. Some reading I enjoyed that was suprisingly interesting was the poetry confrontation between Aphra Behn and John Wilmont, Earl of Rochester. It was a course titled Bawdy Literature of the 14th Century. Behn was the more creative writer, Rochester was jealous so he turned into more of a shock jock for his time.

may I also direct you to Mental Floss Magazine, they publish books too...zillions of deliciously fun facts

I am reading Haruki Murakami's IQ84. It's brilliant and I highly recommend it.

Romy you're a woman after my own heart.

I just picked up Gravity's Rainbow (Pynchon), Invitation to a Beheading (Nabakov, one of my favorites) more book I can't recall at the library. I dunno if I'll actually read them, though.

Working on The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky, which is awesome but a tad slow at some parts, and Pinocchio (for school).

I'm halfway through Robert Ludlum's The Ares Decision. Good reading! Can't put the book down.
