Re: What are you reading now?
I hit the Borders close-out pretty hard. Bunch of new books on my shelf now. I'm starting out with "Drood" by Dan Simmons. Interesting conceit, but the readability suffers some from Collins trying to mimic Wilkie Collins' writing voice. And I say that having read quite a bit of Wikie Collins--Victorian era through early 1900's horror/mystery is my favorite mini-genre. I can't imagine trying to write in that voice, though.
Looking forward to, among others, "The Devil in the White City" an Oliver Sacks book about music and the brain, the story of the county in Mississippi that seceded from the Confederacy, a book that connects The Trail of Tears to the Civil War, a bunch of short stories about the end of the world. And many more.
