I'm reading Karen Blixen's Seven Gothic Tales and Revolutionary Road. And of course, a huge non-fiction book called The Creatores (something like art history) - very useful and very well written if you want something like a non-fiction book about art and mythology and history of ideas, written clearly and entertainingly.

The Wolves of Calla - Stephen KingAnything that you haven't fought for isn't going to be appreciated. It takes blood, sweat, and a large amount of tears before you appreciate what you have.

I'm on a Mercedes Lackey summer reading marathon. Over the top fantasy -- my drug of choice.“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.”

Right now I'm reading The Lord of the Rings for the "god knows how many"-th time. I'm worried though, my copy of the book is starting to fall apart. Again. I swear I go through a trilogy every three years. Maybe it's because it's a single-volume edition and those tend to have binding issues because they're so thick.

Just finished Peter and the Starcatchers... it was okay, but not great. I don't know what I'm reading next; I will have to assess the "To Be Read" pile tonight.
