Re-reading All the Wrong Questions in Lemony Snicket's newest series while I wait to get the chance to get the next two books.

Also re-read Skin Game from The Dresden Files series.

Hopefully once I get back to my hometown, I'll be able to check out something new.

Thomas, the Other Gospel by Nicolas Perrin

Reading John by Christopher Skinner


the latter is more or less aimed at undergrads, but it's still something worth picking up, IMO.

Currently reading through the works of former Stanford Professor Antony C. Sutton, often maligned as a "conspiracy theorist", if he's mentioned at all. He was kicked out of the Hoover Institution for exposing how the USSR and Nazi Germany were actually funded and supported by the U.S. government, as well as by financial and corporate interests from the beginning. His assertions are pretty crazy but he backs up his claims and is pretty convincing. Very eye-opening stuff.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

East and West, by Chris Patten. Patten's term as Governor of Hong Kong is rather fascinating (specially considering the reaction of the Chinese government to some of his actions), and his analysis of China and the Asian Tigers is interesting as well.

Amongst other things, I recently finished Lila. Marilynne Robinson can really write, can't she? A remarkable work that everyone should read.

Most recently read Happy Birthday, Wanda June a play by Vonnegut. Pretty fun read.

On a bit of a reading break right now sadly. Sad
