    Re: What are you reading now?

    Unfortunately, the Lafayette bio I'm reading seems to be historically questionable. I haven't read very far into it, but the author, Harlow Unger, has presented some info about the importance of Lafayette's Masonic affiliation that seems a bit overdone. I'm checking it out, but Unger's presenting this material as straight fact without giving sources, and it contradicts what I've read elsewhere.

    I'll finish the book, which tells a fascinating story, but I may end up giving this the same amount of credence I give Allan Eckert's books: Double check everything before passing it on.

    I'm reading Black Snow by Mikhail Bulgakov. It's a sort of satirical/semi-autobiographical take on the pretension and self-indulgence of artists. Very funny, but I keep accidentally calling it Black Swan, which is very different. Or maybe not so different.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Just picked up What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly from the library. I've found myself picking up lots nonfiction by Wired/Bay Area thinkers of late, for better or worse.

    Read that in college. I think Russian history is just awesome, simply because it seems rather unique and they do things their own way.

    Nice cover!

    I'm currently reading The Comeback Kids about the 2010 Reds. It is never to early to bask in the glow of a fun season.

    Columbine by Dave Cullen

    It's really remarkable how much the media twisted what happened in that school shooting. Nearly all of the popular narrative I took as fact was incorrect.

    I assume that you do not speak English very well, but it looks like you speak and understand it well enough to watch the BBC series, Bleak House. They did it right by turning it into six parts. It's available online for a cost and at many libraries around the U.S. for free. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself.

I've also read the first six books in his "Women's Murder Club" series. The 7th book, 7th Heaven is next on my list, though I, Alex Cross is next in line for me in the Cross Series and I imagine I'll be anxious to read it when I'm done with Cross Country.

    When I get caught-up with those two series, I intend to read the Michael Bennet series as well. Hopefully by then there will be more of the others.

    After spending the majority of the last few years on a strictly non-fiction diet, I was given a copy of "A Game of Thrones" -- which is apparently being made into an HBO miniseries -- by a friend.

    I'm 100 pages in, and every character that's been introudced is more depressing than the last.
