    "The Seventies" by Bruce J Schulman. You'd think I'd find it fascinating.. but so far, it's just really boring. Still chipping away at "Brothers Karamazov" too.... I wish I had more time for pleasure reading.

    i'm reading :

    - lessing's 'shikasta', at a slow pace. tough but fascinating read.
    - c.s. lewis' 'the screwtape letters'. very dull. am a bit disappointed.
    - susanna clarke's 'the ladies of grace adieu'. i have a weakness for clarke's writing ever since her 'jonathan strange and mr. norrell' got published. really good.

    Does she or doesn't she? by Alisa Kwitney.

    It started good, lots of sexual tension but the end wasn't really my cup of tea.

    Re-reading Mme Bovary
    I LOVE that book!

    I've just finished a book called Breathe and it was...ok for 2/3 and then very odd for the last few chapters. The writer seemed to start throwing in everything but the kitchen sink in order to wrap things up quickly. Don't waste your time with it.

    Now about to dive into some newly discovered Czech writers.

    i've read a few, but I remember that I liked roadside best.

    cowgirls, roadside, Still Life With Woodpecker, Jitterbug Perfume and Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas

    I'm def going to pull it out to read again.

    The Seven Basic Plots. You'd never think it would take nearly a 1000 pages of small print to explain them but apparently it does. Not sure I'll make it through as it's pretty hard going just 10 or so pages into it.

    A biography on Antonin Artaud. Interesting. Before that I read Against Nature by Huysmans and it made my eyes bleed with all the descriptions. I bought this book ages ago because it was mentioned in Dorian Gray and put it down after a few pages. This time I actually finished it, I'm proud of myself.
