  Anybody reading any good books lately?

I'm reading

'Innocent When you Dream' the Tom Waits collected Interviews.

and

Iain M. Banks's 'Excession'

both are treating me well!

  Haha I am theoretically still reading Gormenghast by I haven't touched that book since my favorite character died. I'm in mourning.

Also reading a couple of Jorge Luis Borges' stories a week.

  Reading a few of Barry Crumps books, he's a NZ author. Writes about farming, hunting, that sort of thing. Haha. In an amusing fashion.

Um. What else. Been getting sick of reading bad books, so have turned more to true stories (concentrating on mafia and prison - I have a weird obsession) and classics, just finished War and Peace and have started Grapes of Wrath.

Mmm. That is all.

  Oh yes, and I enjoy Tom Waits greatly. Let me know if the book is worth hunting, our libraries aren't really that well stocked.

  Oh it's very good, you don't learna great deal of truth about tom but it certainly carries his legend.

  I just finished reading "Wicked" and was really unimpressed. Maybe I was expecting too much as a couple of my friends had really built it up... but I just never got into it.

Choke : Of Steinbeck's stuff I remember liking "East of Eden" more than "Grapes of Wrath" but it might be because I read the first on my own time and the second as a novel study at school.

  I'm a Waits fan, but every interview I've seen him in he acts like a total asshole.

Not as bad as bob dylan though.

The new hubbie allows you to read?! You wicked wicked little monkey.
Goodness gracious...canadian men are playing with fire.
The next thing I suppose you'll tell us is that he let's you walk right next to him at the mall, or likes you on "top".
What is this world coming to?

ooo, Dave is my favorite. I'm very jealous because my cousin knows him. I would love to hang out with him. And throw frisbees.
