    Now I am reading Tristram Shandy by Sterne, Ivanhoe by Scott, and Bless Me Ultima by Anaya.

    The first two are for a class and the third is just for fun.

    The Unconsoled took me forever to finish. I can usually crank out 3-4 books a month, but that one took the whole month. I would have to psych myself up to read some of it. How are you liking it? I didn't like it near as much as Never Let Me Go.

    Now after waiting 20 some years to get and read the final installment of Stephen King's Dark Tower series, I'm re-reading the entire series front to back.

    I've forgotten just how good Drawing of the Three is.

    I'm reading Shantaram, can't put it down. I hear it's being made into a movie, hope that's true.

    Summer Reading

    In the last month: Ulyssess James Joyce
    A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens
    Les Miserables Victor Hugo

    Now: The Brothers Karamazov Fyodor Dostoevsky

    When I finish B.K. I wanted to read Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac, but the only other work of his that I have read was On the Road and one of my friends told me that there is an order to reading Kerouac's works. Anyone know if there is any truth to that, and if so what should I tackle next? I am not so interested in the Beats as I am in reading about Kerouac's disillusionment with Buddhism and a little about his alcoholic meanderings.

    I loved this book. It haunts me. I think that's a sign of a powerful book. His style takes a getting used to, but it's worth it. Glad you're enjoying it.

    I'm thinking of picking up the sequal Seeing.

    Just finished: Neil Postman's Technopoly Every true biker would love this book. Fixies in particular. Read it, you'll know what I mean. My blog also has some thoughts on it.
    Right now: Dostoyevski's Demons
    Soon: Jared Diamond's Collapse and Kafka's The Trial

    I don't even know if I'm interested in reading the last Dark Tower-The first four were so good, but these last two have been horrible. I can understand an homage to another work or writer, but he's been making a crazy quilt of other writer's ideas because he apparently has none of his own. It's...disheartening, because I've been a King fan my entire life, and have always defended his works as having merit to the snobs of the world.

    And putting himself in the novels was so uninspired it was an abomination, and painful to read.

    Right now, I'm reading BF!

    Oh, wait, you mean a BOOK! OK, I am currently reading The Man-Kzin Wars XI anthology.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I agree about putting himself in the book, WTF? It was not a suitable end to the series IMO,
    almost as if "I sure need to get the Dark Tower thing off my plate, I'll just throw a bunch of mental vomit at my word processor and see if people will buy it"
