    A Man- Orianna Fallaci.

    It's a novelized version of her affair with Alexandros Panagoulis, it's very interesting.

    Just finished Augustine's Confessions and The Satanic Verses. Reading The Sound and the Fury--up to Quentin's section. (Funny how Benji's section goes fast when you're used to it.)

    This Time Together - Carol Burnett. i love Autobiographies, and this one is great. nice short chapters, not a lot of rambling.

    I indulged in two new cookbooks this month, my guilty pleasure. These two are an especially fun read ... Maw Broon's Cookbook and Maw Broon's But an' Ben Cookbook. The Broons, for anyone who might not know, are a Scottish comic strip family.

    I have the Clootie Dumpling from the second book simmering on the stove as I type!

    Love! Kinda hard to believe that the author is the same one who wrote Written on the Body.

    Got into light reading and utter fun with Lee Martinez.

    Haha fantastic! Love a bit of the Broons.

    Currently reading Patricia Cornwell's latest, it's just as mince as her other recent stuff. Don't know why I continue reading her stuff, it's like a compulsion I can't give up.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
