I'm in the middle of:
A wizard of earthsea
A Tale of Three
Please Understand Me (coincidentally)
The Tao of Pooh (bear)Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

Just finished Brothers Karamazof, and now I'm reading Crime and Punishment.
I'm also finishing up the Immoralist (I can charge through an 800 page book, but when it comes to an 125 page nobel prize winner, I get distracted! )
Then I will read... Looking for Spinoza.

I recently finished a biography on Alexander Hamilton. Chernow is a pretty good biographer, though I disagree with some of his political opinions that seep into his commentary. I'm now reading another of his biographies, this one on John D. Rockefeller.
