    Just finished The Strange Case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde-Definitely if not in my top 5 in my top 10 favorite books. This book caught my attention from the first page on. I had been meaning to read it for years, finally got around to it. Now I'm going to read Arabian Nights

    The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris and (Robert B. Parker's) Lullaby by Ace Atkins. Or at least I'm trying to, having gone as far as borrowing them from the library about a week ago. I'm only seven chapters into Lullaby and haven't started The Silence of the Lambs.

    I read Red Dragon by Harris about three years ago and liked it (the first film adaptation, Manhunter by Michael Mann, is among my favourite movies), so I have high hopes for The Silence of the Lambs.

    I have read about ten of the Spenser books by Parker, starting from the first published in 1973. It's light, fluffy, pop detective stuff; I'm a sucker for it. For the '70s Spenser probably seemed 'fresh' while evoking memories of better-known fictional detectives like Hammett's 'Sam Spade' and 'Nick and Nora', and Chandler's 'Philip Marlowe', but by the tenth book (mid-'80s) it felt awfully hokey and I just couldn't be bothered to slog through another one. Lullaby was the first Spenser novel published after Parker's death a couple years ago. We'll see how it goes, I guess. I'm hoping a new author might have injected a little bit of life into the character.

    Grounding for The Metaphysics of Morals by Immanuel Kant
    Two things fill me with wonder —
    the starry heavens above me and
    the moral law within me.

    @Nicodemus, Peace by Gene Wolfe was most excellent! Even more open-ended and filled with intriguing possibilities than The New Sun books. A rambling wonder of a book.

    On The Road by Jack Kerouac
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
