    I always explain that the reason Curious George can ride a bike backwards is because it's a fixed-gear single-speed.

    "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand.

    I'm almost done with it, and it's way better than I expected it to be. I would recommend it to anyone.

    How Fiction Works by James Wood.

    I'm about halfway through and find myself actually nodding in agreement every few pages.

    I just finished Heretics of Dune and I'm on page five of Chapterhouse Dune. They are books five and six in the Dune series.

    Re-reading The Catcher in the Rye.

    I read it for the first time around four years ago. I didn't like it much at the time, but in this second read through, I love it.

    I'm reading two books at the moment. "Merle's Door" which is a book about a free thinking dog. And "Heft on Wheels" which is alright.

    The first time for Catcher is always strange, but the second, third, fourth, all much better.

    In The Wake Of The Plague: The Black Death And The World It Made
    Norman F. Cantor

    Tidy little history book about the plague in the 14th century and how it affected men and women from all social positions. Also questions whether the Black Death was the bubonic plague or was it anthrax that nearly obliterated England. Good read, not to scholasticky, not at all dry.

    "Blood Meridian" by Cormac McCarthy, cause "The Road" was dark and brilliant. Meridian is darker, more brilliant, bewildering and bloody.

    Waiting for "B is for Beer" by Tom Robbins. C'mon write faster, ya sod.

    More brilliant than THE ROAD?

    The mind boggles.
