    Reading 2 at the moment:

    Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth, wonderful retelling of the story of Rapunzel, told from 3 perspectives. It's really amazing, and hooked me from the opening chapter.



    And You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. It's a self-help book that is about self-healing.

    If you liked either of those books (or both, or, heck, even neither), don't miss the book David Levithan and John Green wrote together, the fabulous Will Greyson, Will Greyson. It's the story of two suburban Chicago teens, each named Will Greyson, who meet under unusual and hilarious circumstances...and that's just the start.

    Sounds interesting and I was actually just looking for something to read. Thank you!

    I've been listening to books too while I exercise (and exercise my dogs). I feel like I'm getting so much done at once , while enjoying the enrichment of 'reading.' However, as you may know, not all readers are equal, and the effect of a talented reader or a terrible one is dramatic. Considering that, I mentioned just upthread a bit, the superb reading Jeremy Irons delivers with Nabakov's Lolita. The novel is perfect already, so you will wonder how listening to it could be better, but it is.

    I read it today, it was a nice book, a bit too teenage-y for me. The other two seemed more serious, but this one, you can tell they didn´t put much thought into it.

    I just finished Rebel Souls, by Justin Martin. It's the story of the Bohemians who met at Pfaff's cafe in New York in the 1850s and 1860s...a long forgotten group that included Walt Whitman in his younger days. They were fascinating and well worth remembering. Martin also follows Whitman afterward, to Washington DC where he met the love of his life. And he tells of the tragedies that befell other members of the circle. It's an easy and enjoyable read that rediscovers a lot of forgotten history,

    Wagstaff: Before and After Mapplethorpe: A Biography

    "Biography on a grand cultural level, here is the long-awaited story of Sam Wagstaff and his indelible influence on the world of late-twentieth-century art.

    Sam Wagstaff, the legendary curator, collector, and patron of the arts, emerges as a cultural visionary in this groundbreaking biography. Even today remembered primarily as the mentor and lover of Robert Mapplethorpe, the once infamous photographer, Wagstaff, in fact, had an incalculable—and largely overlooked—influence on the world of contemporary art and photography, and on the evolution of gay identity in the latter part of the twentieth century."

    "The Uncensored Picture of Dorian Gray" from Wilde's original manuscript before magazine editors toned down the homoromanticism and Wilde's further de-emphasis for book publication in reaction to the negative criticism it received.

    Finally finished A Dance with Deagons. As I wait on the newest Song of Ice and Fire I'm reading John Connolly's The Whisperers. I love the Charlie Parker series fallen behind a bit though.

    Just finished Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent by Harvey Silverglate. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to understand where our liberties are actually going.

    Launching into Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America's Police Forces, by Radley Balko. FOr those who already despise Ronald Reagan, it's so far a delight; for those who idolize him, it's a wake-up notice on how he worked to gut our civil liberties, attacking the first, but especially the fourth and fifth Amendments to the Constitution, along with trampling states' rights.

    "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. "

    I'm reading the family law be benjamin law which is about an asian australian and his family and what it was like for him to be gay in a family like that. It's fantastic actually. So funny.

    I was a bit worried because lately I've been really enjoying books and then suddenly putting them down and not being able to pick them up again but benjamin law always keeps me reading

    Away by Amy Bloom is a historical novel about Lillian, a victim of a Russian pogrom, and her escape to the United States, A book jacket blurb compared it to Ragtime, but I liked this book so much more; it didn't play fast and loose with history as I felt Ragtime did.

    I've been on an old novel reading binge during this season's deep freeze: "Lolita", "House of Mirth", "Cakes and Ale". Now I'm at chapter 118 of W. Somerset Maugham's autobiographical novel "Of Human Bondage". The clubfoot definitely equals gay.

    Finally made it a point to read 'The Beach' by Alex Garland. Mesmerizingly engaging and (fortunately) nothing like the movie.
    Other than that I recently got completely addicted to anything by Agatha Christie. (Why is it only now that I find out about all these great authors?!) Read 'And Then There Were None' and was so fascinated by this woman's written words, I immediately went online and bought a whole bunch of books by her. ^^

    Halfway to the end reading Dark Places. I love this book. Very dark and graphic. Funny thing, I have no idea that there would be a movie adaptation of this book, when I read this book, I imagine Charlize Theron as the lead character of the book. When I googled and found the news that there would be a movie and Charlize Theron will play the lead character Libby Day, it shocked me and made me happy. She'll perfect for the character.

    Finished From Away by David Carkeet. Stranger gets mixed up in a (possible) murder, but is mistaken everywhere he goes in that small town for another guy who "disappeared" three years earlier, so he takes on that identity while police are focused on his actual one. Requires A LOT of suspension of disbelief at times, but I found the book funny.

    I thought Libby Day was terrific! However, I skimmed through scenes without her as nothing but a boring rip-off of In Cold Blood.

    Funnily enough I'm reading King's Misery at the moment (not for the first time). For what is essentially a two-hander, in one location for most of its length, it takes a writer of great skill to keep that interesting and tight. King manages to pull it off.

    I'm plowing through Robin Hobb's Rain Wild series.

    "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. "

    Welcome aboard! My I suggest the recent sequel to The Shining - Doctor Sleep? For my money by far the better book.

    Since Patti Smith just announced her new autobiography M Train, I'm going to finally start reading Just Kids.

    Yes, I was actually planning to read this. (Dr Sleep was the initial reason I started The Shining in the first place.) But now my giant BD order arrived with Agatha's greatest works, so I probably won't be able to read it until I've finished all those. Then again, I am seriously considering waiting with Agatha until autumn. Summertime isn't really the right setting for curling up on the couch and losing yourself in murder mysteries. Let's see if I can keep my hands off...

    What's Dr Sleep like, if I may ask? I have restrained from reading any excerpts, since I find that those usually spoil it somehow. But from the title I always got the impression that it has to be similar to Insomnia (another excellent mindfuck by Mr. King btw).

    I am reading "The Best Little Boy in the World" by Andrew Tobias. The book was published more than 25 years ago and it is apparently a classic. It is a memoir.

    Check it out! It is an interesting book.

    I had to stop For Whom the Bell Tolls, but not for any good reason. The reader's performance stupefied me with such a somber sameness I couldn't pay attention. It was like listening to someone sleep. Shame.

    I just finished The Soldier's Wife by Australian author Pamela Hart. It was a lovely book set in 1915-16 Sydney. Descriptively it really set the scene of what Sydney was like for a young woman whose husband was away in the war. Loved it.
