It takes forever for that progress bar to inch on the Kindle and no wonder... The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle is freaing 576 pages long. This is how I get back into serious reading I'm on location 638 of 9000, so that's about page 40. Argh. This is going to take forever. Great story, though. I'm in for the long haul. I haven't even gotten to the good part. He takes a looooooong time with exposition, but I hear it pays off at the end.

Well, The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle fell by the wayside. It's still great and I'll still finish it but little by little. I'm moving on to:


It's surprisingly good. I started reading it less than 5 hours ago in-between calls at work and I'm 35 pages in out of 272 pages. I can see finishing this in a week or so.

Also bought:
Life With My Sister Madonna
Obama Nation
Miracle at St. Anna
The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington

So those are what I'm going to be reading next.

Just Finished

Now Reading

I don't have time lately to read except for on breaks and sometimes lunch at work, so I'm going much slower than the 1 book per week pace I would like.

I just chewed my way through a true crime marathon. Helter Skelter, Outrage: How OJ Simpson Got Away with Murder, and the John Douglas books.

Almost done with . . .

The best part of the book is the piece after the stories detailing the history of the Wade/Miller team, (if you are a big noir fan like I am, you know who these guys are).

I think it's a pretty damn important book and I hope someone takes Mr. Bugliosi suggestion.

Take that as you will.
