    I'm reading lots of "new" poetry and some theory these days. But my pleasure reading is David Foster Wallace's book on (the birth and concept of) infinity, Everything and More.

    This is my first book on the subject - followed DFW to it, rather than seeking it out on its own. Though I've been reading a bit on a bunch of science and math topics (was just reading Feynman's QED).

    "Bad Blood" by John Sandford. If you like crime fiction, it's a keeper. Not finished though.....

    I just finished The Hunger Games. It wasn't exactly high-brow literature and I have no intention of seeing the movie but the plot was riveting. I was hooked practically from the first sentence.

    I read the whole thing on Tuesday at the beach so I could go see the movie with the wife last night. The first person was annoying as heck, but the story was ok and it was quick enough to get through in one day. The move was pretty "meh" though.

    Does anyone know of any good action adventure type books maybe like the Uncharted or Assassins Creed video games? I am not big into reading, but I wouldn't mind trying something that could really catch my eye.
