I couldn't put Tell No One down. I read it in two days.

I just took out the Iliad and the Odyssey.

However I love romantic comedy books and Jennifer Crusie is the best at it.

I also just finished Aint She Sweet by Susan Phillips, I think that is her name. That was good too.

Imperial Hubris - Why the West is Losing the War on Terror, by Anonymous.

Scary as hell considering the author spent well over 20 years in the US intelligence community. He take shots at the US government, every US President in the past 20 to 25 years, and explains a perspective on the war on terror.

Don't be misled though, his attacks on Bush, Clinton et al suggest he's a lefty / liberal, but his solution, essentially more military, more killing of the enemy, and less namby pamby with 'coalition building' is pretty far to the right.

It's a great read -- it put the whole Bin Laden, war on terror, et al in a different light for me. If the author is even remotely correct about the situation, the 'war on terror' will be ongoing for my entire lifetime; and I should have at least 40 years left.

God, I LOVE Douglas Coupland...although I have some catching up to do as I haven't even read Hey Nostradamus! yet...looking forward to Eleanor Rigby. Personally my favorites are Shampoo Planet & Life After God. Got to see/meet him when he did the Microserfs book tour. Really nice guy.

Any Tom Robbins fans around here? I still haven't read Villa Incognito but I've heard some ghastly things about it and I'm scared.

I can't wait to get it, it sounds like something I'd love.


I just finished Fargo Rock City, hi-lar-ious. Supposedly Klosterman has a new book coming out this summer.

Now I can't decide which of my new books to read...

Which ones. Iris?


I got one of my first of many from Amazon last night. Story of My Life by Jac McIerney. I remember picking it up when I was 12 or 13 and obsessed with NYC (heh, not much has changed) and that's one of the books I lost in that flood. I remember that Bono's name was mentioned somewhere in it. lol

Personally, I think Marion Keyes is pretty good at this stuff as well. Watermelon (her first) and Sushi for Beginners are my faves.
