I enjoyed Night Watch as well. I need to read Day Watch, and I could see that universe becoming a series.

Re: What are you reading? (March 2009)

Read so far:

Dream Story by Arthur Schnitzler, translated by Otto P. Schinnerer
Watchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and A Man Called Horse, The Hanging Tree, Lost Sister: The Great Western Stories of Dorothy M. Johnson by Dorothy M. Johnson (obviously)
Thank You for Smoking by Christopher Buckley
Adventures in the Screen Trade: A Personal View of Hollywood and Screenwriting by William Goldman

Read in about half an hour last night:
Cruel Shoes by Steve Martin

I have absolutely no idea what's next. Maybe something related to baseball, since the new season is about to begin.

I'm giving up on Fair is Fair. I keep on clanging against the author's politics inserted into old folktales. The story of clever Irishman outwitting the devil doesn't need feminist ideals added into it.

After all these years, I'm starting Edward Tufte. The first two chapters were great!
