  Currently: Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. That part with Melisandre and Davos in the boat at Storm's End scared the daylights out of me.

Previously: 1984 by George Orwell. That whole book scared me.

Will probably re-read Animal Farm next for something to do while I wait for Storm of Swords to ship. I recall it being short.

  Many things started....

Getting More.

Veronika Decides to Die.

Russian for Dummies.

and my son's 6th Grade math book trying to figure out what they mean by folding a fraction strip? This is not his father's math... I'm so confused.

Not that it matters...

Fraction STRIP?! I have never heard of that...ever. but, my best guess is that its a form of organizing. Am I right?

  Absurdistan by Eric Campbell (quite good memoir by an Australian Broadcasting Commission foreign correspondant)
A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan (Pulitzer prize winner that I bought awhile ago, but only started reading when the book show I watch assured me it was fantastic. So far, I like it. What's awkward is that one of the presenters of the book show I watch lives across the road from where I take my cigarette breaks, so often sees me reading the book, and I want to talk to her about it, but then I remember that we don't actually know each other. Ugh. I also don't want her to guess that I'm only reading it because of her show. I'm a dork)

  Been insanely busy over the last few weeks so I'm not making good headway with IQ84 hopefully I should make up some time over the weekend.

Why did I buy that trashy horror novel when I had nothing to read on the train the other day?! I could be half way though Murakami by now but instead i've wasted 4 days reading about monsters on an oil rig.

Maybe for the same reason I read 'Misery' three times in a row when I was 15, and stuck on a boat for 10 days. In a row. Three times.
