It's like reading Ulysses for the first time and realizing that it's not "literature" in the way you would expect.

You're not joking! I just finished Ulysses, and it about killed me. I wish I could say I enjoyed it... I quickly read The Old Man and the Sea to flush the stream of consciousness out of my system. And I'm now reading McCullough's 1776. I highly recommend both it and John Adams.

Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman Capote.

It's pretty psychedelic.

Let's bring this thread back to life!  I've been obsessively reading the Warriors series - I know ... it's a series for 8-14 year olds, but it's really entertaining :D  I love animal fantasy/fiction, so yay!  If you like Watership Down, Redwall, or Tailchaser's Song ... then I highly recommend Erin Hunter's Warriors and Seekers series.  READ THEM!  Also, light, young adult fiction is perfect for the harried law student  :D

The Blank Slate: the modern denial of human nature by Steven Pinker. Excellent non-fiction reading with plenty of scientific analysis and witty humor.

I love reading and even though I have a hectic schedule I always find time to read even a couple of chapters or so. :)

The Law of Torts: Examples & Explanations, 3rd edition.  I'm reading all the E&E's (and fully outlining them) over this year before I start next fall.  Once I finish that I'm moving on to Hornbooks.  Watch out!
