I read "Crackpot," a book of essays by John Waters, a few days ago. Now I'm making my way through a mythology book that I got from the discount table at a bookstore.

"The Little Prince" has to be the best book ever. Period.

I still haven't read that. I probably should at some point. In English translation, of course, since I don't know no French.

I wish I knew French, it's probably better to read it the way it was actually written.

I'm working my way through a book of World Mythology, but I recently took a few breaks to read Clive Barker's The Hellbound Heart and Henry Blossom's The Blue Emperor of Oz. Anyone who knows me is probably surprised that there are Oz books I haven't read, but there are.

I'm reading "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski, and have been for a couple months. It's very good -- I wish I had more time for reading. At the current rate, it'll be October before I finish.


Please pardon me, for these my wrongs.

Promised a friend I'd take another look. But his critic's voice is even worse than his fiction writer's voice.

And to compensate. An old favorite. Keeps getting better and better.

I'm on an FDR streak.

I finished this one about a month ago.


And nearing the end of this one.


Of the two I think I've enjoyed the one by Doris Kearns Goodwin the most.

The Death Of Bunny Munro



A friend of mine went to a signing and got me a copy. It reads
"To Ali
Love Nick Cave"
And there's a doodle as well. Pretty cool.

I'm definitely gonna get the unabridged audio book because he's lifted audio books out of the stone age with the care and attention he's done his with, apparently.

I saw some of the clips of Nick reading at http://www.thedeathofbunnymunro.com/ before I bought the book. Try as I might, my own voice couldn't quite replicate his. I too want the audio book, a most unusual release. Nick Cave is one of a kind, unfortunately I don't think the same can be said for the likes of Bunny Munro.
