finally finshed The Sparrow. Jesus, it was a real slog there at the end. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you were heavily into Jesuit theology or overly wordy plots.

starting on china mievelle's perdido street station next

Just received Ann Coulter's new controversy -

Mugged - Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama Limited signed First Edition of 500

Looking forward to it.

Read Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Fighter. I was very surprised at how much I liked it and just saw the trailer for the Tim Burton movie adaptation.

Finally finished making my way through Anna Karenina. Can't remember the last time it took me this long to finish a book. Glad I read it but not sure it really drew me in. Maybe I had a bad translation (Amazon is terrible about listing correct translations of free public domain kindle books...will have to be careful with the next non English classic I read).

Now starting "thinking fast and slow"

So I'm currently re-listening to my Sedaris audiobooks for the fifth time and am wondering if anyone here can recommend other audiobooks? A relaxing yet entertaining voice is essential, and something I can listen to while doing other things.

I'm about halfway through this and have very little desire to continue reading it.

I'm about to sit down with Paglia's new book. I read a review that she calls George Lucas the greatest living visual artist or something, so I don't exactly have high hopes.

Attended the Carl Sandburg Literary Awards dinner last night and met Nami Mun. She was the recipient of the Chicago Public Library’s 21st Century Award; a wonderful dinner companion and very self effacing. I started her book, Miles From Nowhere, on the plane back today. Great read so far.

Finally finished China Mievlle's Perdido Street Station. Jesus, what a fucking mess. Just a sprawling scrable of overly wordy paragraphs ending in a unfulfilling climax. What a suckfest.

that is the one thing i'll always hate about reading, when you lose hours of your week and your money reading a book you find out you hate.

books are just like people - a few winners and a whole lot of losers.
