What was the last book you read?

Just tell the last book you read, and maybe if you liked it.

Kat's Craddle, yeah, I reread it for the 12th time since high school, and I still think it is awesome.

I recently finished 'The Book Thief'. I thought it was outstanding, primarily because of the author's approach to language. I've seen it slated for its ending, which disappointed me too, but I can forgive the author that because in truth, it's difficult to see how it could otherwise have ended.

The last one i read was The Stand by Stephen King. But at the moment I am reading Angels and Demons. I wanted to read the book before the movie came out.
Has anyone else read that one yet?

Working my way through The Quarterly edited by Gordon Lish.
I bought all of issues - 1 through 31.
Just awesome writing.

Also I have been reading a fair amount of Poker books.
Elements of Poker by Tommy Angelo was the last.

Hosho McCreesh suggested Albert Huffstickler.
Amazing writer. I have a copy of:

Why I Write in Coffee Houses and Diners

that I am working through.

If you have never read Huffstickler, you are in for a real treat.

Just finished The Stand (for the umpteenth time) and had to giggle over the coincidence with the whole Swine Flu thing. Now reading Dean Koontz - Cold Fire, Moving Pictures - Terry Pratchett and Glastonbury Romance - John Cowper Powys.
