Tell us about what you're reading, or just drink some wine and gossip, whatever you like.

I just stared My Struggle, Book 2: A Man in Love by Karl Ove Knausgård. I REALLY liked Book 1 and so far this one is every bit as great. I'm about 80 pages in and all that he's talked about is a child's birthday party and going out on a balcony for a cigarette. Somehow it's enthralling. This guy can write.:cool:

Just started Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.

I really liked Damned so I thought I'd try another of his.

I read Taft by Ann Patchett. Been going through most of her books this summer.

Started North by Scott and Jenny Jurek a couple of days ago. I feel like I am right on the trail with them. I did follow his journey on the AT somewhat when it was happening so it's kinda neat to get a more inside look at what was going on day to day.

The AT record has been broken a couple of times since then and I find myself thinking the record seems less and less "prestigious" or something now that it's broken regularly. Anyway, not so much interested in the records but the experience. I've read a few books on various AT treks now.

I'm listening to North by Team Jurek and really love it.  Also listening to Karin Slaughter's police procedural Fractured.  Almost finished reading Sarah Waters's The Night Watch.  It's been kind of slow going.  Next up, I promised to reread Huck Finn so I can talk about it with my daughter, who's reading it for Honors English.

It's fun hearing their voices reading the audiobook.  Scott has funny accents for "Horty" and Speedgoat. :laugh:

I'd love to hear their voices!  I'm going to see if my library has the audiobook version.

PS - we served Speedgoat coffee at our aid station this past weekend.

Don't read too much into these: (pun not intended)  :wink:

Anatomy of an Affair - Dave Carder 
- very good: delves into how various types of affairs and "close calls" happen - stages types, patterns of justifications...

Married but Lonely - David E. Clarke
- bleh: meant for women, stereotypical behaviors and sex roles (all men don't emote, all men are intimacy averse, etc)

Juliet, Naked - Nick Hornby
- re-reading for a bit of light-hearted relief.
- bummed that I missed the movie when it came to town. Will have to wait for the dvd

I've got a bunch of other stuff in progress, or in one of the piles...

Finished I'll Be Gone in the Dark.  Not my normal thing, but a good changes of pace.  Made me think of the forum's NorCal peeps since a lot of it is set around there (Mt. Diablo is discussed at some length).

She talks a bit about a neighborhood of Eichler-designed homes called Rancho San Miguel.  It is literally a mile from our house.  We run all the time on the bike path the GSK used to peep into backyards, and I've often wondered which houses were the ones he broke into there.  So creepy!

About half way through Pat Conroy's South of Broad .I enjoy his writing, but this is not his best, IMHO .Seems a bit incredulous .Our local independent hardware store had this for $ .50 ; just couldn't say  no :grin:

I put Prince of Tides down, not because I didn't like it, but because I got distracted by two or three other books.  I plan on getting back to it...

Killing Commendatore - the library came through for me :cool::hug:
