a fair and balanced birdthing

Books of late:

I'm (con)currently reading:

Again, Dangerous Visions - part 1 (which is amazing, of course, especially when viewed historically)
Alien Sex (which I'm REALLY enjoying)
Cradle Tales of Hinduism (which is fascinating and lovely)

I started None But Man, but haven't been able to get into it; it'll probably end up in the mooch pile. I read 3 Charlaine Harris books (her Sookie Stackhouse books are much like Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series, but with more story and less gratuitous sex), and really enjoyed them; they were fun, light entertainment. Also, they're not quite so...frought, I guess is the word I'm looking for, as the LKH stuff, which I appreciate.

Read Swordspoint, which I think I'd like more if I were in a different frame of mind (which has been sort of restless, impatient and stressed). I really, really loved Kushner's Thomas the Rhymer , so I think I'll hang on to Swordspoint, and look for copies of the subsequent books on bookmooch, and read them all together when I'm not so distracted.

I dunno what's next on the list; I've got quite a few good options from my bookmoochery. We'll have to see what my focus is up to.
