Lord John and the Private Matter. It's a mystery set in the 1700s with a gay English military officer as the protagonist. I'm re-listening to the whole series and it's holding up to a second listen pretty well.

10-22-2013, 12:29 AM #1591“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

I was reading a book called Letters to Juliet about people writing letters to Juliet of Verona, that's the character from Romeo and Juliet, I'm nearly finished it now and might write a letter itself, there is an annual contest and the winnder gets a stay in Verona for two people.
Also I'm reading Jung's Anwer to Job, and another book called The Wish List which is a massive life list someone composed and I'm using it to think about goals I might want to complete myself.
I'm reading The Riddle Master's Game at night, its from the fantasy masterworks series but its not as good as Jack Vance's Lyonesse Two which I was reading before that.
There's a book on Ghosts, a natural history of Ghost Hunting but its sort of something to pass the time just, its not that interesting but it passes the time.It is a luxury to be understood - Ralph Waldo Emerson

you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

I just finished 1408 (Stephen King) and The Exorcist (William Blatty)
Both were okay. I'm still looking for a good , solid scare though. Suggestions are welcome.

The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz. I love this book. This is 50,000 hours of a psychoanalyst's sessions condensed into a book. If you enjoyed HBO's In Treatment series or if you enjoy learning what makes a person tick, then go read this book.Finally, the cgi smurfs look like the cartoon smurfs - 'bout smurfin' time.
