Giorgio Agamben, The Kingdom and the Glory: For a Theological Genealogy of Economy and Government. I loved his lectures drawn from the book up on youtube, so I'm excited to read the entire argument.

I haven't picked it up yet, GF got me completely distracted with a show called "American Horror Story", just did a marathon of the first season. I plan on picking Pan up this weekend after I finish up Midwich Cuckoos tonight which I've neglected too long.

Don Quixote, Part II

Finished Part I a few months ago.
I swore that I would read it in Spanish, but came to
realize it would be too difficult and take forever.

Trainspotting is probably still my favorite book of all time (and right up there among my favorite movies for that matter). Everything else Welsh has ever written has been utter shit (with the pathetic 'hope they buy the movie rights' failure Porno being a particular target for my disdain). However, whenever he revives Renton et al, I'm gonna be right there to read about it.

It's off to a decent start...
