Taking a break from my heavy reading.

I read The Naked Sun by Asimov. It took a day. I hadn't realized how bland his style is, and how little sensual it is. It's like reading a well-written SOP.

Now I'm reading the King Arthur quadrilogy by Howard Pyle. I bought some early editions. I didn't realize that the pictures, which are the main reason I didn't want to buy modern reprints, had been colored in with crayon . . .

Last week I Read: "Dead as a Doornail"
Today I started: "Definitely Dead"
Both are from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris and both are good readings.

Re: What are you reading? (August 2009)

Although I am definitely not a big fantasy type of book fan, based on the great word of mouth, along with the upcoming HBO series, I finally decided to start A Song Of Ice And Fire. No idea if I'll actually make it through the book, let alone the series, but I am definitely going to give it a try:



In addition to that book, I am alsok picking at another book in bits and pieces:

Re: What are you reading? (August 2009)

Believe it or not, I'm reading Craig Shaw Gardner's novelization of Batman. I found a mint copy for practically nothing a few months ago, and after seeing the film on a big screen again in June, it seemed like the right thing to read for the 20th anniversary summer. Plus, after the astoundingly good Boone: A Biography (thanks again, Lateralus!) I needed something that didn't require nearly as much attention from me. Also, I recently got back into the habit of writing at night instead of reading, so even though I should've been finished with Batman within about a day, I've been on it for nearly three weeks.
