a combination of both, actually. the last one is for "light reading" during the semester, the others are for the paper.
i should probably clarify my statement that the last one is for "light reading" -- it is for "enjoyable" reading. from time to time, i like to read biographies (change it up a little from my typical SF/Fantasy/Historical Fiction selections). its incredibly interesting to hear about other people and what revelations theyve come to in their life. since Pyth is dead and all, quite dead, the last one is probably the closest i could come to a biography which is interesting to read.
i do need to take a break from the Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan) and the Incarnations of Immortality (Piers Anthony)
