What I'm Reading Now . . .


The fabulous Miss Erin has tagged me for a "What Are You Reading" meme. Here goes . . .

Just Finished: We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson.
Recently reissued with a FANTASTIC cover. (I'm a sucker for good art direction.) Dark and disturbing in all the right ways.


Just Started: The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon
I'll admit it. I once admired Mr. Chabon's photo as much as I enjoyed his books. My crush has faded (I think), but I remain a loyal reader. My favorite (probably a controversial choice in the Michael Chabon reading community) is The Mysteries of Pittsburgh.


Still Reading: The Bhagavad Gita and the National Enquirer
Research for an upcoming project. (heehee)

be sure to give a full report! i hope you enjoy them; i just finished "Skin" by Tedd Deckker, it's a big ugly vs. beauty, good vs. evil book (true to most of Dekker's books)

Hey Theatre,

Love all the comments. It's really great to see you back. (3 hours of crew a day? Very impressive.)

The Empress's Tomb picks up right where the first book left off.

I haven't posted on ET yet . . . but I will very soon! (Maybe even tomorrow?)

That's a very good question. Maybe I'll figure out how to have the profile flip back and forth between the two books. Unless you have a better suggestion . . .

Good detective work, by the way!
