    I'm reading Frankenstein Unbound, I like it, its a lot better than Dracula Unbound, I'm also reading a book called Towards A Human Science, which has only had one essay which I disliked in it so far, its a book which examines the relevance of erich fromm to today.

    I heard it was different than the movie. Most people say the book is better, but one person told me that it was worse lol I'm going to give it a try because I really liked the characters in the movie. Either way the physical book is beautiful.

    I am in book 7 of the Outlander series, am 87% done with Proust's 'In Search of Lost Time' (about 2 years later! lol. But I shall prevail! (actually I really like it, I just have to read it in small doses)), and am now in book 2 of Brandon Sanderson's 'Mistborn' series - very fun fantasy.

    I read Call the Midwife: A True Story of the East End in the 1950s by Jennifer Worth and now I can't buy here 2 other books of the trilogy and I really want to read them... Maybe I will order them from uk.

    Anyway I recommend! Cute, sad, funny. Maybe that's a slightly spiritual midwife version of James Herriot vet series.

    The Watchmaker of Filigree Street - a wonderful tale about a telegraphy clerk in Victorian area London who finds an intricately designed pocket watch on his bed that proceeds to save his life when an explosion goes off in the city. The protagonist then meets the maker of said watch along with a female physics student from Oxford, and they have to face more than just explosions and impending marriage together. Amazing so far!

    A few short stories by James Baldwin ("Sonny's Blues", "Going to Meet the Man", and "The Outing), all of which I enjoyed and highly recommend to anyone looking for some good short stories to read. I was impressed by the level of thematic depth/complexity, as well as how nuanced and real the characters are. My favorite story was "Sonny's Blues", which is a Kunstlerroman about a former heroin addict struggling to stay clean who finds himself (and a kind of surrogate family of other musicians) through following his passion for playing music.

    Who moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson, MD

    Gives a different perspective on the same situation. So far makes for an interesting read
