Reading Point Counter Point, by Aldous Huxley, which is about the dichotomy between passion and logic. The book, he said, is funny and witty and full of stuff you laugh out loud about...though he couldn't remember any examples--he usually reads before bed and then forgets it.

Recently he read The Devil in the White City, by Erik Larson; A Farewell to Arms, by Ernest Hemmingway; 1984, by George Orwell; and American Gods, by Neil Gaiman.

He's a big Hunter S. Thompson fan and reads his books over and over again, usually each book about once a year. He reserves Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72 for election times, though this time he just couldn't handle it--there's just been too many commercials.
