Read On

I like to read, maybe a little too much...

Currently I'm reading:
Horseshoes, Cowsocks & Duckfeet
The Tao of Leadership
The Cornered Cat
Where the Sidewalk Ends
The Old Whore: A Novel

What are you reading?


  1. Brighid--now that is what I call a potpourri! From the Epic of Gilgamesh (which I highly recommend--it is the oldest known tablet, or book, I should say--to the Whore: a novel!! :)

    I am reading all of W.G. Sebald's novels, especially Austerlitz, which I am writing my thesis about.

    I am also rereading many of Kakfa's stories and one unfinished novel that I never read: the Castle.

  2. I'm reading The Future Homemakers of America, very light but enjoyable. I'm also listening to audiobook Madame Bovary.

  3. I'm re-reading "Time Enough for Love" - it's one of those "comfort" books that I seem to re-read every now and then.

    "A Well-Regulated Milita" by Saul Cornell, on the meaning of the 2nd Amendment.

    Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse by James Rawles. Interesting.

    Gunsmithing - The AR-15 by Patrick Sweeney. Because . . . AR-15

    Building Your Bood for Kindle by Kindle. Going to take my "Just the Basics" to a Kindle format book this year.

    Obviously, from my list here there's "good news" and "bad news" about reading many of my books on a Kindle . . . . :)

  4. Just finished Bull Canyon by Lin Parday, reading sporadically The Blue Bird Effect, Schroder, A Novel, pick up Guests of the Ayatollah now and again and fnally reading the short stories in Calvino's Cosmicomics.

  5. Just finished "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed about her trek on the Pacific Crest Trail. Reading Anna Pigeon mysteries by Nevada Barr, murder in the national parks. Have a new John Burdett "Vuture Peak" to start, murder in Bangkok. Seems to be crime for me this winter in the main.

  6. Old Yeller, and Savage Sam in that order, it's that time in Texas
    ( Fred Gipson )

  7. NFO: Well that sucks...

    CHERI: I think it was "you" who got me hooked on Gilamesh, Thank You!

    GM: lol

    NELLY: Good on you.

    EIFTINFO: Good reads. How exciting to be putting your book on Kindle, YeeHaw!

    TABOR: I knew you would have some interesting ones.

    CELIA: Oh, I will have to check on Wild. I have always wanted to ride the Pacific Crest trail from Quincy to the Oregon border.
    Have read all the Anna Pigeon series, good reads.

    SUERTE: Great old standards!

  8. Home Wiring For dummies though I think it's a little too advanced for me.

  9. SIX: LOL, I seriously have the Whole series from when we built the "Well Shoot" house...

  10. Good grief, girl, how on earth can you simultaneously juggle all those different tomes in your head?? I get confused enough reading up to two at a time. Have to confess I've forgotten the title of my latest crime novel - it's not captured my imagination much, and I've dipped in and out of it only out of duty - it's time I moved on to something more engaging, methinks. In my defense, I'm boning up on tutorials in my spare time, to master the new software I recently upgraded to regards my embroidery machine - AND I'm likewise refreshing my Photoshop skills, too, but I do enjoy a good read when the mood takes me.

  11. Re-reading "Game of Thrones" as it's been awhile since I read it the first time.

  12. SHRINKY: After the year you've had who has the time to read! I'm saving up to get Photoshop so I can terrorize my kids...

    OLDAFSARGE: I have a copy of that on the "to read" stack. But keep getting side tracked rereading "Rhythms".
