    Halfway through Crime and Punishment. Really enjoying it.

    I think Dostoyevsky is one of the only prominent Russian authors I haven't read any of...

    Crime and Punishment is a good read. The Brother Karamazov was a bit of a drag. I can only take Russian bleakness for so long.

    I loved The Brothers Karamazov, a really enjoyable read. I have a lot of thoughts on it, but I won't expound them here. I didn't find any of it as dense as the first half of Notes From Underground.

    I'm reading the Rabbit Angstrom novels by John Updike. I'm on the 3rd one, Rabbit is Rich.

    Picked up Bourdain - A Cook's Tour and Kitchen Confidential at the used bookstore. Also picked up the complete works of Edgar Allan Poe. Reading A.C.T. and The Gold Bug simultaneously. Awesome.

    Kitchen Confidential was fun although I was a little hindered by my lack of understanding french culinary terms when I read it.
