    Right now I'm reading Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros. I like it. I love the way that it incorporates Spanish into the dialogue and story.

    Just finished reading Echo Park by Michael Connelly. Part of the Harry Bosch detective series. I love serial killer whodunit's, I know it's not high literature but I could just devour them one after another. Plus lots of his novels are set in L.A. so it's neat to recognize locations he's talking about.

    I'm reading a biography of Cecil Beaton parallel to reading a history of Victorian London. I'm in a major brit phase.

    I think I read one of those Harry Bosch books... OMG I've been going through a phase of reading crap you can buy at Target... I don't know when it will end.

    "The Interpretation of Murder" by Jed Rubenfeld. It's a work of fiction that attempts to solve the mystery of why Freud vowed never to return to America after a visit in 1909. It's pretty interesting.. only a few chapters in, but it seems really worth it. Plus, it was only a buck. Cant beat that.

    I think I'll dip into Doris Lessing again, now that she's won the Nobel Prize...which I would start a thread about IF I COULD....

    I'm reading Wonderful Tonight by Pattie Boyd. It's about her relationships/marriages with George Harrison and Eric Clapton. It's pretty interesting.

    Read Celebrity Detox last night in about four hours. It was "okay."

    I am starting The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible. Lord Brit ordered it and it looks amusing.

    Just finished Nick Hornby's "A long way down". Nowhere near as good as "About a boy" and somewhat repetitive and unbelievable at parts. I'm not sure I liked it but it was a quick and rather interesting read.

    The Good Master by Kate Seredy. It's a kid's book, but it's great. The Death Ship by B. Traven.

    i read that a while ago. it's really funny in parts but i agree with you that it sort of trails on for too long or something. i had the same problem with 'how to be good' - starts off great, very funny, then becomes a little tedious.

    buttmunch, why can't you start a thread on doris lessing? am i missing something?
    i've never read anything of hers but i'm curious.

    right now i'm reading 'shalimar the clown' by salman rushdie. so far it's excellent and so beautifully written - i think few people make the english language as beautiful as rushdie does.
