    Don't feel bad, I wasn't a fan either.

    Coconut Cowboy by Tim Dorsey. Y'all FLORIDA haters need to read him. He is hysterical and spot on with the crazy FLORIDA hijinks. I'm proud to be a Floridian. Fuck all yall haters.

    Has anyone read the autobio by Justice Sotomayor? I ran across it in the bookstore yesterday and was really tempted, but I don't think I've heard a review of it from anyone.

    I'm reading Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe again. It's a slow read because of the arcane style of language and text layout but still good fun. Bloke thinks that I should get the Alex Kingston tv version on DVD instead. Can't think why...

    It has also put me in the mood for some more Olde Worlde naughtiness so I might get down my copy of Fanny Hill (John Cleland) next. The descriptions of 'quivering maypoles' had me in stitches when I first read it as a teenager.

    "Mummy's Little Soldier" first novel by Rikon Gaites (UK). A very dark thriller of human depravity. Crazy stuff.

    Time Out of Mind, the journals of Leonard Michaels. Ugh, I have such a dead-author crush on him. I'm reading this in between Balthazar, by Lawrence Durrell. It's a short & great book and it's a shame I'm breaking it up, but idk, my attention span is shot, can't stick to one at a time.

    My Face for the World to See, by Alfred Hayes. My GOD it was fucking fantastic, loooved it. Now I'm starting A Manual for Cleaning Women, by Lucia Berlin. I'm liking it, her work reminds me a lot of Raymond Carver.

    i read The Hobbit in high school...many many....many years ago and did not love it. Never read any of the others either. And I read all genres.

    Received a bag of Danielle Steele books, easy summer reads. I just started her very first book, Going Home, copyright = 1973, and also written in that time frame. A few thing really jump out at me: female main character and guy she has known for a few hours have sex, and protection is never mentioned ( it seems in all the books I read lately that take place in modern times always mention condoms etc). She lets the guy she has known for a few days give her 5 year old daughter a bedtime bath.

    Funny to read a book written in the same era, vs a present day book which takes place in the past.

    finished Seductive Poison by Deborah Layton.

    Layton was a member of Jim Jones' Peoples Temple and part of his inner circle. really a fascinating read about Jim Jones, Jonestown & the People's Temple.

    how sad and crazy that her mother escaped the Holocaust only to die years later in Jim Jones' concentration camp like hell called Jonestown.

    If on a Winter's Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino- just can't get into it. On a related note, why are kindle books as - or even more - expensive than paperbacks now?
