The Cloud Atlas by Liam Corcoran. It's a story about an old priest in Alaska who reminisces about his days as a warrime bomb disposal sergeant, whilst visiting the local shaman who is dying in a hospice. Got that?

Just finished A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway . An outstanding book about Hems early years in Paris.

Currently reading The Innocent Man by John Grisham, not necessarily my type of book but since it was given to me I might as well read it.

Where did topic come from? I'm currently reading:

Embryoyo by Dean Young (I've already read this but I go back to certain poems on a semi-daily basis)
it by Inger Christensen
Jamestown by Matthew Sharpe
One Big Self by C.D. Wright (haven't actually read this yet; the re-release should arrive at my home today)

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

And as soon as that is finished: Augustus: The Life of Rome's First Emperor.

I love Roman history and I have a thing for successful tyrants.

Canterbury Tales - Chaucer

"Vive La Revolution," a humorous look at the not-so-funny French Revolution. Pretty good so far -- the comedy gets thin at times, but helps keep the book moving at a nice pace.

I've just started a very good book called "His Needs Her Needs" by Willard Harley.

Currently (re)reading Rabbit, Run by John Updike

Recent books include The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll by Alvaro Mutis and The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe (possibly the best books I've ever read).

Just started "Carter Beats The Devil" and Gleick's "Chaos" (I know, I'm about 15 years behind the curve on that one). My fallback disposal minutes reading of late has been Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series. I also just finished re-reading "Leaves of Grass", and with my daughter have been steadily working through the Amelia Bedilia canon.
