Default What are you reading?

I've got two books on the go at the moment, Encore Provence by Peter Mayle (the follow up to his famous A Year in Provence) and Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz which is an absorbing look into the minds of dogs...a truly great read for the dog lover (yes, yes, inside of a dog, dog lover etc.) The subject matter has the potential to be quite dry but she has made it a very enjoyable read. Fascinating stuff.

Whataboutchu?

Project specifications, and this particular project is gov funded. So they are about 4" thick and over 2000 pages.

Gotta hate ADD at these times.

Rosemary's Baby. Up next is a translated Norweigan thriller called Ritual, then an unabridged version of The Modern Prometheus (original title before changed to Frankenstein).

Bible? If so, it's also a book of all the oldest books on earth put together. Almost magical....

And no, I'm not religious, just studied this book several years ago.
