Russo's a great, somewhat underrated writer. And, of course, we share the same literary agent! (as well as James Ellroy)

I'm finally getting around to the Goldfinch. Have to say I''m not as in love with it as everyone else seems to be. And definitely not as much as I liked her first two books.

Just started listening to the Hardcore History podcast on the Franco-Prussian War, so this is definitely going on my to-read list.

Anyway, I'm having a crazy last semester of grad school so I like that it helps me sleep at a reasonable time.

Finally read To Kill A Mockingbird. It held up to its hype.

Now, How to Travel with a Salmon & Other Essays by Umberto Eco - great, funny read.

I do love that book. The film was actually quite faithful and good too.

The book truly is fantastic. I'll give it a reread in the near future. Think I'm gonna watch the film tonight. I'll probably read The Catcher in the Rye after that.

I'm enjoying the U. Eco book very much, though some essays are hard to follow since there's so much knowledge on part of U.E. crammed into them. Just ordered Misreadings today to follow it up.
