I just started The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. :)

I finished The Botany of Desire. I couldn’t finish it the first time I picked it up a few months ago. I think I wasn’t in the mood for non-fiction. But this past week I really enjoyed it. This book, along with the 1491 book I read really gives me a sense of awe for Native Americans as agriculturalists. What would the world be like today if they hadn’t been so vulnerable to “old world” germs?

Is the title of the Native American 1491? It sounds like one I want to add to my to-read list.

It’s called 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C Mann. It’s a great read! He’s apparently just published 1493, which is about how the discovery of America affects the world. I’m definitely picking that up!

Awesome, thank you!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on it should you ever read it. ;)

I plan to, it will just take me a while to get to it!

Still plowing through War and Peace – what an amazing book! I forgot how much I liked this book. I’m reading my old annotated copy and it’s interesting to see all my old notes/thoughts.

I’ve rolled through a couple books since I last posted but at the moment I am reading The Sunday Philosophy Club (Alexander McCall Smith). While I have enjoyed a number of his books, especially Corduroy Mansions, I find Isabel Dalhousie insufferable. I don’t think I’ll be carrying on in this series, I am just so miffed with the characters!

Of his non-No.1 Ladies’ Detective Series (I’m behind a couple of books, but they just can’t be topped), I like the 44 Scotland Street characters second-best.

Uniquity said

44 Scotland street! There we go. All I could remember was The World According to Bertie so skipped over it to Corduroy Mansions, heh. I’m probably behind in that one, it’s been a few years. Perhaps I’ll try the Ladies Detectives later on.

I’ve read the series about professor von igelfeld. Or rather listened to, as they were on audiobook and annoyingly only available in abridged form. I want to read them on paper in their full length. I liked them, they were good fun. (Didn’t hurt that Hugh Laurie did a fab job of reading the first three either)

Hugh Laurie doing an audiobook…droooooooooool!

I just finished reading Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher… and I’m currently in the beginning of George RR Martin’s A Storm of Swords.

The Copper Beech by Maeve Binchy. Lovely Irish chick lit which has to be read under a cozy blanket with a cuppa in hand.

Well, I’m not too sure I’ll be able to finish Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter before the 27th because I’ve been totally swamped with school work and class reading! So, here’s what I’ve been reading for school:
Charlotte Perkins Gilman – Herland and The Yellow Wallpaper
Eliade – The Sacred and The Profane
Bronte – Wuthering Heights
Shakespeare – Othello and King Lear
And lots and lots of poems by Wordsworth and Keats.
