    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    ^ I've never attempted audio.

    A cursory look shows that A room of One's Own which is pleasantly satisfactory as a slim book takes 4 hours on audio!


    I've never attempted audio because I found listening on a Walkman is OK for pop music but gets really messy for me If I'm trying to walk around traffic and listening to serious music like Brahms.


    I could send my copy of the Woolf diaries in paperback with all my pencil marks marking all the delightful and insightful passages.

    That does seem to be a barren stretch. Maybe authors find it boring?

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    What is 'alternative history'?

    Is it fake history?

    But every so often Hollywood gets it right. My favorite example is Anne Tyler's The Accidental Tourist. I was looking forward to meeting Muriel on screen and Geena Davis was just perfect in the role.

    I recommend the book, too.

    I'm working my way through Fred W. Hunter's books - finished the Alex Reynolds series and am starting the Ransom books. Quick, fun reading.
    Goodreads list of his works

    In the first one:
    With Peter, his longtime lover, busy for the evening, Alex Reynolds decides to stop in for a quick beer at a local Chicago gay bar and survey the nightlife scene he left behind for "married" life years before. Quickly unamused, Alex decides to call it an early evening, stopping off in the men's room before going home. But there he is assaulted by two men who demand of him, "Where is it?" ...A dead body turns up outside the bar the next morning, and a CIA agent arrives at the door of the house Alex and Peter share with Alex's unflappable mother and begins asking some very confusing questions....

    Meanwhile, on audio, I've found all sorts of things at the online library. For those who don't know, I wanted to mention two sources of audio and e-book loans: The local branch of your county library (or whatever you have) and, if you have one, the state library commission. Interestingly, the latter did not process my library card online, but they gave me my number over the phone to use while waiting for my physical card. They had several of the mystery series I like, but I didn't know until after I bought them -- Joseph Hansen's Brandstetter books, for example.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I've just finished the 5th book in author Kevin Hearne's "The Iron Druid Chronicles". The 5 books in order are Hounded, Hexed, Hammered, Tricked and Trapped. From the first book's flyleaf:

    "Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old--when in actuality, he's twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the Earth, posses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer."

    If you like contemporary fantasy, loaded with lots of magical & mystical beings. . .everything from werewolves, vampires, ghouls, whole pantheons of gods and goddesses (including Christian, Jewish, Celtic, Hindu, Roman, Greek, Norse, etc.). . .lots of colorfully described fight scenes and the telepathic communication between Atticus and Oberon, you will enjoy this series. IMO, Oberon gets some of the best lines, but, then again, he's a dog with a fondness of fried sausages and French Poodles. ERrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, wait, that didn't come out sounding correct. Oberon has a fondness for French Poodles in HEAT and fried sausages

    Here's the author's web site: http://kevinhearne.com/

    I'm reading Beautiful Music for Ugly Children, by Kirsten Cronn-Mills. It's about Gabe, a Minnesota high school senior who's a DJ on the community radio station. Gabe has only recently come to terms with who he is; he was born Elizabeth.

    I'm about a quarter of the way through and I like Gabe a lot. And I'm a sucker for the Minnesota setting; the Minneapolis skyline is on the cover.

    Currently on a Ghost Story kick, but damned if I can find any really excellent ones. Or just good in general, most of the writing seems mediocre, you can tell what's coming a mile away.

    Really long but I loved it. Probably my favourite fantasy series.

    I'm currently on book 4 of the Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. I've mixed feelings about this series so far. When it's good, it's really good, but it can seem a bit tedious at times too. The scale of the story, characters etc is massive so it's easy to get lost. But I'll stick with it a while yet.

    In a column I read recently, author Chris Bohjalian recommended "Year of Wonders," by Geraldine Brooks. I read it a while ago, and I agree! It's the kind of book I'd ordinarily NEVER pick up. It's the story of a woman in the Dark Ages during the time of the bubonic plague. My first reaction was not to bother; I don't usually like historical fiction or "women's books." But "Year of Wonders" is a WOW.

    I'm in the midst of Robert Caro's "The Passage of Power" -- part of his multi-volume biography of Lyndon Johnson. This one covers the period from his failed presidential run in the 1960 race to the aftermath of Dallas. There's a bit of historical confusion about the exact situation, but it seems he was offered the veep job as a courtesy (formality), with the Kennedys never thinking he might actually accept!

    As far as gay books go, I recently knocked off "Familiar Spirits" by Alison Lurie -- her take on poet James Merrill and writer David Jackson's relationship, from promising start to bitter end. It's a relatively short book that I read in a couple of sittings.

    One I finished a couple of days ago is All That Is by James Salter, very well written and pretty much the best thing I┤ve read in the last few years, simple yet satisfying.

    I finished today How to Archer: The Ultimate Guide to Espionage, Style, Women, and Cocktails Ever Written. If you liked the animated series, you┤ll like it, it┤s pretty funny and perfect to kill time.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    Not really sure why, but I'm rereading Weber's Honor Harrington series. Thanks to some discussion here on JUB, I'm paying particular attention to the politics.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Rag and Bone, by Michael Nava, the seventh and last of his novels featuring gay Hispanic lawyer Henry Rios. It's a proper conclusion to the series, and I want to read or reread the others now. But first I should read Nava's new historical novel, The City of Palaces, just released this year.

    Started The Secret History by Donna Tartt, but the library fees were adding up so I let it go half-way through, just when it started getting interesting. I'll have to find a used copy.
    Finally acquired copies of Murakami's The Wind-up Bird Chronicle and Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest at a Powell's sale. Summer is over. Spending less time outside. Here comes six months of rain. Hoping I can get through a generous stack of books by spring. The new Naomi Klein comes out next month too.

    I've been eyeing Infinite Jest but worry it may be like White Noise which I found too much of a parody for my taste. Do post about it.

    I started about 10 bad books until I finally decided to try The Fault In Our Stars to see what everyone is talking about. I finally understand the cigarette/metaphor thing now :P I did read 2 chapters and so far I┤m between giving it up or continue reading...

    I've been holding out on Infinite Jest for years because I try to buy used and could never find a copy. White Noise by DeLillo? That's one of my favorites. I never thought about it at all as a parody. I'm not sure how it'll compare, but I'll be sure to follow up.

    I'm missing the next Honor Harrington book, so while I'm waiting for it to show at the library I picked up a random book -- an Orson Scott Card thing called Shadows in Flight.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons.

They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    It's an intriguing title, huh?

    Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. More for teenagers, but I enjoyed it, more than The Fault In Our Stars.

    I'm putting down Eco's Baudolino, which isn't nearly as much fun as I had hoped, and am looking for something else.
