The Porcelain God: A Social History of the Toilet, by L. Julie Horn. I'm addicted to non-fiction, at the moment. I also just finished reading Maya Jewell Zeller's Rust Fish, which is a great collection of poetry, and some bizarro fiction out of Portland - The Haunted Vagina, by Carlton Mellick III...which actually wasn't as terrible as it sounds. I mean, the quality of the writing isn't the best, and the storyline is absurd, but it's worth reading just to say you've read it. The author has written other stuff, but posting the titles of some of them may well get me forum-banned. Prior to this, I was reading Gates of Fire, by Steven Pressfield, Strange Customs of Courtship and Marriage by William J. Fielding, and Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy, by Barbara Ehrenreich. The former is probably the only one that will appeal to most Achaeans, being a fictionalized account of the battle of Thermopylae.

"You have had an extraordinary adventure, my dear. Extraordinary! One that few people could ever imagine. Treasure it. Keep it safe and secure, tucked away in some special place in your heart. But... don't spend the rest of your days chasing a ghost."
Since this is a forum post about books and all, I was wondering, do you guys have any suggestions on what I can read to a 12 year old kid who likes action + comedy? I read him The Princess Bride and he loved it. I tried to follow it with Good Omens but he was lost after the first 2 chapters. He wasn't a fan of the 1st of the circle of magic books either. the first chapter was interesting and exciting but then it just became too un-actiony. XD Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am wracking my brain trying to think of something. TT_TT
The boyfriend also recently picked me up some other books, including A Game of Thrones, and a four book series that is a mixed romance/fantasy thing by Diana Gabaldon that starts with Outlander.
I was going to recommend The Lies of Locke Lamora, and then thought 'This is probably not suitable.' It certainly was funny. Republic of Thieves is meant to come out in October, right?
@Adet it wasn't laziness. I was unsure how to spell her surname. Rather then make a mistake, I looked it up and copied it over from another page.
