So what are you reading this month? Our Book Club book is Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, and I will be finishing it up today. I've also started Virgins: A Cultural History by Anke Bernau.

What are you reading?

Reading Darkness Visible by William Styron -- NOT the one of same title by Golding. Styron describes vividly and poignantly his struggle with depression. As one who suffers from this illness myself, I found it the best description I've ever read about depression and the hope for its victims who struggle through. He also has good words of advice for loved ones who have to deal with it directly or indirectly.

I finished Virgins, it was ok, mostly a rote description of popular sources describing virgins, virginity, and purity. The author did not try to interpret or explore the implications at all. I've started The World Without Us by Alan Weisman, should be an interesting read. I watched a bit of the special made from the book, so I know what to expect.

I'm finished with virgins too. I prefer skilled mature lovers -:)

Hee.

Finished up The World Without Us. It was OK. Way too many individual subjects to give much detail, but an interesting thought experiment. Just started The Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin. First time reading it.
