This is a collection of story stories by the great former Twilight Zone writer Richard Matheson. One of the stories was the basis for the movie The Box, hence the cover. These stories are great so far, very Twilight Zone-ish of course, though often with more of an edge than what was shown on TV in the 60s.

I just finished Earth Inc. by Michael Bollen.
I highly recommend it. It has to be one of the best dystopian comedies I've ever read. I stayed up all night to finish it. x3

Atlas shrugged by ayn rand. i'm nearly at the end and have just finished the chapter where John Galt adresses the world. He's an unbelivalbly sanctimonious character. I could barely belive what i was reading. I've not been too enthralled by the book and that just made it very very silly.

The second installment of The Hunger Games. I am hooked on this series. Can't wait for the third in the trilogy, coming out in August! Screw that Twilight crap... THIS is what teenagers should be reading.

The Brothers Karamazov - Fyodor Dostoevsky

I'm about halfway through, and while it is interesting, I can't really wrap my head around Russian culture, so I get lost sometimes. I won't deny that it's great though.
