Ended up taking a break from Serious Stuff (TM), and am about two-thirds of the way through Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
by Seth Grahame-Smith.
Will be resuming the Karla trilogy with The Honourable Schoolboy
after that, then picking up The History of White People
before concluding the Karla trilogy with Smiley's People
After that, the plan is to finish American Gods
by Neil Gaiman. Not sure after that -- maybe Pedagogy of the Oppressed
