Currently Reading?

Huh. I haven’t been reviewing books lately. Between the book club books and my own reading for pleasure I have quite a list to review. Everything from my recent themed thread of reading about hot virus’s to the brain candy fluff.

I may or may not get around to a more substantial review of these, but for my own record, here are some of the books I’ve recently read, am in process of reading or are in the queue to be read:

The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. The story of Ebola

The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston. The smallpox story, which the reality is more terrifying than any doomsdayer could conceive in fiction.

My Antonia by Willa Cather. Book club book.

Family History by Dani Shapiro. Book club exchange book.

Deception Point by Dan Brown. Brain candy, easy couple day read. He has his formula that catches the reader quickly.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Another brain candy book that I read in a day. For all the hype and people taking a piece of fiction far too seriously, I enjoyed it, he tells an interesting story.

Watching the English by Kate Fox. An anthropologists look at what it is to be English. Mark is reading it now, tantalizing me with fascinating tid bits. It’ll be in my hands soon enough.

No Touch Monkey by Ayun Halliday. Travel journal, one of my favorite types of reading. It’s in my queue, I picked it up for Mark to read while he travelled in England. Plus, how can I resist a book with a review from Stephen Colbert!

The New Killer Diseases To add to my hot virus theme of books. It’s next in my queue.

Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales. We got into watching that “Survivor Man” it just works to feed that fascination.
