    The Translator by Leila Aboulela. It's for a Lit class I'm taking. Surprisingly it's actually pretty good.

    Finished reading Gatsby a few weeks ago. Don't really read novels that much.

    Strauss wasn't conservative enough so I set him aside to read The Law by Bastiat. Will resume Strauss this afternoon.

    The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet'ss Nest, by Stieg Larsson. The 3rd and final book in the Millennium trilogy. If you haven't heard of or read any of them yet, I highly recommend them.

    I'm reading Gatsby again. First time since high school. Oh man. The pale tone of detachment between characters is great. As is the imagery. As are the illusions.
