i'm slowly working my way through a few books:

The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov
Confessions of a Crap Artist by Philip K Dick
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Solaris by Stanislaw Lem

and a book of Philip K Dick short stories

So just how many books do you read at once?

Read the new Reacher, 'A Wanted Man,' in about 4 days. Hey, it ain't high literature, but Mr. Child has now mastered the art of un-put-downed-ness: interesting protagonist, short chapters, vertical fall of a plot, lots of action. Had four of his books to get signed, and a long line behind me, so I never did have the time to ask Child about casting Tom Cruise as Reacher. I'm guessing Cruise's production company offered Child a 2-foot stack of thousands.

IFOA thoughts:

Micheal Chabon: as nice and as gracious as he's ever been. Class act.

Junot Diaz: Lost some weight; super sharp, mental-wise. Discussed Toronto construction.

Mohammed Hanif: Finally got my books signed. Tiny fella. Pakistan air force must recruit small.

Lee Child: Debonair. Polite. British.

Rachel Joyce: Nice lady.

Kate Mosse: Small lady wearing ridiculous high heels. Channeling Vivienne Westwood?

Karen Thompson Walker: No impressions - too rushed.

Richard Ford: Brusque, verging on impatience. Got a friend to get my second lot of 4 books signed.

Andrew Westoll: A class act, and very forthcoming.

Cory Doctorow: Just like his on-line persona: in your face, friendly and smart/y.

China Mieville: Nice guy. Much softer nature than his dust-jacket pics might suggest.

Paul Auster: More effusive and warmer than his writing might indicate. Liked him a lot.

Jess Walter: As friendly and as nice as the last time I met him.

Chester Brown: Rocking a haircut like no other human, but so nice and quiet. You can see where his work comes from.

Just finished The Great Gatsby (again), leaves me with a weird feeling.


New film version coming out sometime?  Looks pretty cool.

Is that written in the first or third person?

I don't care too much for that series if it's not written in the first person.

The Reacher one? Yes, it's third person. First person only, eh? Well, that significantly reduces your reading list.

Finished Ender's Game which was very good, and jumped right into the The First Law trilogy by John Abercrombie.

It's not my genre, but the characters were so througoughly enjoyable to me, that I've already on the  third book.   Pretty good stuff.

Which science, nappyology (natural science) or nappynomics (social science)?

Nappynomics is extremely dismal!
