The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I've been reading it for a long time, since the book is long and I've had other things I've had to read. I've read about 500 of the 676 pages and it's very good.

I can't read off a screen, I need something tangible that I can flip around in make notes and leave them in the page. I also like collecting books- but that happens when you book-jockey for a job.

Perfume really was a great novel. They're coming out with a movie of it soon. (Or they have come out with it already, but I hope I'm not that behind on things.)

Right now I'm reading what seems to be a collection of sleazy (and non-sleazy) romances. (But no, I didn't find it in the romance section.) It's called "Kissing in Manhattan."

It's one of those books where all the women want big strong roughed-up men to keep them safe and happy (in other words it was written by a man who has a painfully limited conception of the female psyche). But it looks interesting nonetheless.

I just finished Stephen King's Cell for my personal reading time and the Gallagher's Catcher in the Rye as part of my English 20 novel study.

Man the ending of Cell is... interestingly awesome.

Crime and punishment and Shankar's quantum mechanics.

Just finished that on Friday. Very good, though I'm a big Murakami fan.


In the middle of this right now. It's incredibly slow and I feel like I'm walking through mud to get through it.

"False Memory" by Dean Koontz. Absolutely gripping. The first 50 pages I was almost thinking the book was getting kind of monotonous, describing how a woman with a certain "craziness" thinks. Needless to say, there was so much more to it. I'm now half way into the book. The story is so horryfying, and what the characters (victims) are going through is so incredibly frustrating. I have needed to take brakes while reading this book, really heavy in a way, but excellent nonetheless.

I read a book or two per week. I wish I had the time to read more. I like to have a good mix of fiction and non-fiction.
Currently:
Journey to Chernobyl: Encounters in the Radioactive Zone by Glenn Alan Cheney
It's a pretty chilling account of a visit to Kiev, Chernobyl & Pripyat in 1991, 5 years after the accident. Despite having read a number of books on the subject, the personal nature of this account really strikes a chord.
