TEXTBOOKS!

One of which I've always wanted to read - the Legenda Aurea by Jacobus de Voragine. Hagiography is my favourite subject...

I saw the movie for In Her Shoes and I liked it a lot so I got the book; read it last night. For once I have to say I actually like the movie better, but the book was good. I thought it might be, you know, chick-lit (rom-com), which I don't enjoy... I guess it is but the story is really good.

Now I'm catching up on the more recent Douglas Coupland novels.

I read In Her Shoes but haven't seen the movie.  I also read Little Earthquakes, which I liked better.

Now that I have a commute that does not involve driving I have read 5 books.
I started reading Augusten Burroughs and I love his books.  They are an easy read and so far have cracked me up.  I also finished Wicked and Son of a Witch.  This reading thing is pretty cool.
Hard Gay is way too cool to ever be Vista.

Is it a William Blake Sale?

If it was a picnic they could have made Samuel Taylor Coleslaw.

For years I've been reading non-fiction books. I really haven't touched fiction since I was in gradeschool, except for the occassional reread of LOTR or Dune. Then about a year ago I couldn't remember the name of this great series of Fantasy books I read back then. It bothered me enough that I googled and decided to order the four of them from Amazon. I reread those and enjoyed them just as much as then, and it turns out the guy has continued to write and now has like 20 books under his belt. I'm about finished with them all.

So lately I've been on Raymond E. Feist.
Shake your groove thing.

Which is not to say I don't find it exceptionally cool in that literary nerd kind of way
