    Currently, I've been reading several books. I occasionaly get bored with one, so I pick up the next one. I need to stop because it's driving me crazy

    On the plate:

    Hannibal by Thomas Harris(173/486)
    Thinner by Stephen King (100/318)
    Towing Jehovah by James Morrow (20/371)
    Sundiver by David Brin (140/340)

    I've made a vow not to start any more until I've finished all of these.

    Since I'm studying politics, so I'm reading this:
    Nicholas Machiavelli: The Prince
    Willam Pitt & Scott Ritter: What Team Bush Doesn't Want You to Know
    Peter Lodenius: Bushs nya värld (Bush's New World)
    Kegley&Wittkopf: World Politics, Trend and Transformation (700 pages in English to read, ugh)

    And during the next months I have to read one book of Platon, Aristoteles, Kant, J-J Rousseau,Cicero, Sun Tzu, Thukydides
    and...yeah..some other books too.

    I've been out of college for 2 years. The last book I read was "Super System" by Doyle Brunson (really helpful book on poker). I plan on reading his followup "Super System 2" I just wonder: "Super System" is known as the poker bible. So, does that make "Super System 2" the poker Book of Mormon?
