moving thoughts

alrighty, so i'm getting ready to blow this popsicle joint apartment, and i keep on running into those annoying lil post-its of things i should be reading.

Wicked by Gregory Maguire
White Teeth (about an Indian family in the UK, made into a PBS movie)
Codex by Lev Grosman
Mediterranean Winter

Books I checked out of the library but didn't read (I always do this):

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman (author of the Sandman Chronicles, yet another must)
The Mulberry Empire by Philip Hensher, about the early colonial history of Afghanistan -- a tangent from my reading the AMAZING Empires of Sand (I'll track down the author later)


Pattern Recognition by William Gibson (who apparently wrote the screenplay to Johnny Mnemonic).
