    Reading "Uncommon Type: Some Stories" by Tom Hanks. Quite a nice read, he's a good writer as well as actor.

    A re-read or first time?

    First time. I was really really tempted to not read it at all until after the movie came out, but I saw the extended trailer the other day and it's got me craving more, figure I'll read the book and hope the movie does it justice.

    I didn't care much for the trailer and will probably pass until solid reviews drive me to see it.

    So, who has read Atlas Shrugged? I'm thinking of picking it up, but some of the people that are Ayn Rand fans drive me nuts.

    I'm a sucker for pop-culture references and the trailer was rife with them. Not to mention that version of pure imagination in the trailer, that was amazing. I'm not convinced it'll be good, but I've heard great things about the book (i'm about 5 chapters in and it's enjoyable so far)

    I read The Fountainhead when I was 19. It was a good read. Solid plot, and some interesting philosophy.

    I began to read Atlas Shrugged at 28 or something, but could only make it 250 pages before it became a job. It was Fountainhead all over again, and I had already read that book...

    I'm glad I read Fountainhead when I did. The older I get the more I have no time for books that are thinly disguised homilies.

    I have a hard time finding time to read. When I traveled a lot, I read 3-4 books a month. Now, I'm lucky if I read one in a year. I think using a tablet has ruined my enjoyment of reading (along with finding the time).

    I read it. It was good, but like Hawg said, a little bit of a chore. In a way it scared me.

    Ayn Rand was an interesting person but a bad writer.

    A lot of what she was warning about is scarily close to coming true.
