Thanks, Orin.

Recent Reading

In an effort to try to at least keep up the record, here are some things I've been reading lately:
  • The Simeon Chamber, by Steve Martini - An early one, involving some California history, WWII, and the Hearst Castle.
  • Time Bomb, by Jonathan Kellerman - these never fail.
  • The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison - her first novel, and really excellent
  • A Monstrous Regiment of Women, Laurie King - second in the series started by Beekeeper's Apprentice
  • Fight Club, Chuck Pahlaniuk (read online, probably bootleg) -- Wow. Now I've started to read Survivor, another novel by Pahlaniuk.
  • A Year in Provence, Peter Mayle - this is a surprisingly enjoyable book written by an English journalist who moved to Provence with his wife, their adventures establishing a home in this singular area of France. I suppose the book could also be entitled How Two Rich People Managed to Survive France, and it did recount an embarrassing number of drunken driving episodes, but I did enjoy it nonetheless.
