What I've been reading.

Father of Jack asked what I've been reading lately. The truth is, I haven't been reading quite as much as I usually do, and that's probably tied to not writing as much as I usually do. The two are often linked.

Anyway, I've read...

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, by Stieg Larsson, which was good, albeit a little slow at first. I kept going and ultimately enjoyed it.

The first few chapters of THE LIGHTNING THIEF, by Rick Riordan, just to see what the hubbub is about. It's not the sort of book I'd normally read, but I can understand why kids are loving that series.

SWAN PEAK, by James Lee Burke, which is another solid addition to the Robicheaux series, although, honestly, I think that series is reaching its limits.

FEELERS, by Brian Wiprud, which is very unique and a lot of fun. Go pick that one up.

There are others, but I can't remember what they are right now, which is a review unto itself.
