Multitasking--reading, text-messaging and listening to his iPod.

Reading a collection of Mao's teachings (if you happen to see this--I didn't happen to write down the name of the editor...) He's been reading a lot of books about the global history of political thought, including Empire, by Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri.

His favorite book--it might be The Great Gatsby, by Fitzgerald, for its description of the American psyche.
