On the Pile
Finished: U.S.! by Chris Bachelder. Excellent, if you start on p. 200. Otherwise, a bit rambling, self-indulgent, redundant, and heavy handed with smatterings of wit and inventiveness.
Currently Reading: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore.
On Deck: Who Moved My Blackberry? by Lucy Kellaway. Also a very large stack of library books that probably won't be read before they are due back.
Added to the Pile: No new review books arrived in the past week, so I had to return to the library for my fix. I'm dipping a toe into graphic novels; as usual, I'm two years behind the trend. I'm also doing a little spiritual investigation because I'm not so sure I want to be a Catholic anymore.
Fray by Joss Whedon, Andy Owens, and Karl Moline
Maus by Art Spiegelman
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
The Quakers in America by Thomas Hamm
I've also been on a bit of a magazine binge lately, picking up the latest Ode, ReadyMade, Rachel Ray Everyday, Ploughshares, Granta, and Oxford Review, as well as some tabloids to go with the banana pudding last week. I just can't properly mope without good gossip.
