Book Journey. That woman is incredible: runs 5ks, bikes 65 miles, is always on the go and yet manages to read like a fiend and keep up with her blog. So go over, say hello and get inspired!
Let's get down to business. Since last here, I did manage to get in some reading time. Continuing on with my book-to-movie junket, I started with The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. I then moved to Richard Neely's Shattered, a rather twisty piece of noir fiction. Then moving away from the noir genre, I read The Stoning of Soraya M., by Freidoune Sahebjam, a small but powerful work of nonfiction, followed by Somerset Maugham's The Painted Veil. Last, but by no means least, I read Christopher G. Moore's soon-to-be-published Asia Hand, a bit of Bangkok noir (if you're wondering why you keep seeing the word "noir," it's because I really like it so read a lot of it).
Currently I'm reading Daniel Wallace's Big Fish and also David Mitchell's new book The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, which will be published at the end of June. I will be giving this book away when I finish it, since I preordered a finished copy months ago. I've heard already some potential Booker buzz about this one.
This week I plan to finish Mitchell's book, then I'm going to drop everything and read The Harvard Psychedelic Club. I keep picking it up but it gets put aside. No more. If anything else comes up, you'll find out next week anyway.
that's it...now let's get out there and read!!
