What did you think of the last few books you read?

The Fugitives - Panoz Karnesiz - average
Woes of the True Policemen - Roberto Bolano - good
The Insufferable Gaucho - Roberto Bolano - average
Rabbit is Rich - John Updike - average
Some books that were so-so, although I really enjoyed WOTTP, which is a spin-off of 2666. Rabbit is Rich was an improvement on Run and Redux, thankfully. The Fugitives was pretty disappointing, since The Birthday Party is a brilliant book.
What have you been reading the last few weeks? Good or bad? Also, how is this board doing? I haven't been here in months.

“Marry, and you will regret it; don’t marry, you will also regret it; marry or don’t marry, you will regret it either way. Laugh at the world’s foolishness, you will regret it; weep over it, you will regret that too; laugh at the world’s foolishness or weep over it, you will regret both. Believe a woman, you will regret it; believe her not, you will also regret it… Hang yourself, you will regret it; do not hang yourself, and you will regret that too; hang yourself or don’t hang yourself, you’ll regret it either way; whether you hang yourself or do not hang yourself, you will regret both. This, gentlemen, is the essence of all philosophy.”
