I'm reading Blind Eye, a true crime account of physician serial killer Michael Swango.

What it says about the clanishness (not to mention hubris) inside the medical profession is chilling.

"The Count of Monte Cristo"

I'm only about 100 pages in (it's over 1400 pages long), but so far it's good.

"The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico." --firsthand account of the Cortez expedition by Bernal Diaz del Castillo, Conquistador, circa early 1500s.

If you ever wanna read about men with true balls, read this book. The sheer chutzpah of what these guys did is simply astounding. What has happened to men these days? *sigh*

I'm currently reading a book called "Brida" by the Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho. It's an interesting and captivating book about love, magic and searching, taking place in Ireland during the 80's. It's one of those books that makes you think and actually teaches you something about yourself and life in general. I can definitely recommend it!

'Le Grand Meaulnes' by Alain-Fournier, a very moving and undeniably beautiful book.
