What are you reading?

Well, the phrases would be ""Vé a la escuela"" (Go to school), or ""No vayas a la escuela""(Don''t go to school). So you''re practically right.

I can see how it''s confusing, ""Ve"" is two verbs, ""See"" and ""Go"".

Anyway, ""Quiero una cerveza"" is probably the most useful spanish phrase you''ll need. That or ""Corran! Es el Pollo Diablo!""

I all of sudden have an appetite for sea biscuits...

Im about to go on a trip, and I just went and bought:
Ringworld - Larry Niven
Halo: Fall of Reach
Count Zero - William Gibson

Anyone read any of these?

I''ve read just about everything Larry Niven has written Ringworld''s a Sci-fi classic, awesome book and so is Count Zero, my favourite W.Gibson novel.

I''m currently reading Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden (the same guy who wrote Black Hawk Down) a great factual account of the rise and fall of drug lord Pablo Escobar.

I just finished reading W. Gibson''s new book, Pattern Recognition. Other then that, I''m in the middle of a bunch of books on 16th century England.

Killing Pablo is on my to-read list, along with:

The Language Police: How Pressure Groups Restrict What Students Learn by Diane Ravitch.

What Liberal Media? The Truth About Bias and the News by Eric Alterman.

Im into Norman Davies ""Europe. A History"" right now. extremely insightful and intelligent. helps to trace roots of todays society problems back to B.C. I recommend it to everyone.

The only book I finished on the trip is Halo: Fall of Reach, which was really good in a pulpy military coming of age kind of way. Really enjoyable.

Ringworld is starting out excellent, though.
