I'm so backed up on books it's ridiculous. Life has been really giving me a beating lately and I haven't even felt like reading. Yikes. However, I started some new things. Actually, I started a lot of new things but ended up marking most of them as DNFs, as you'll see in the days to come. Often, it's not that the book is "bad" (which is such a subjective judgement that I reserve it for the truly heinous things I've had the misfortune of reading), but just that it doesn't appeal to me.
Right now, I'm reading the usual, plus:
One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters, because nothing cures the blues like medival monks on a mystery mission. See also: The Name of the Rose, but thankfully Peters uses much less Latin.
Gorgon (Alex Hunter #5) by Greig Beck. The Alex Hunter books are much better than the Matt ... uh, what's his name? Kearns! books in general, mostly because Alex is a more complex character. Haven't seen any car parks in this one ... yet.
