Re: What are you reading?

Just began a book on the history of the United States Capitol Building in Washington and its development and evolution over the last two centuries. Books on the Capitol are a very fascinating read if you have any interest in architecture and American political history.

Just finished Lauren Groff's Arcadia -- beautifully written, but a bit depressing for my taste.

Right now I'm reading Anne McCaffrey's The Ship Who Sang. Fun!

Re: What are you reading?

In re a convo in TNZ, I've started rereading The Dragonriders of Pern trilogy, which I originally read when I was 12 or 13, and recalled really enjoying.

Half Broke Horses - Jeanette Walls

The only problem is it's short, so I'll be done way too soon. I want to savor it. On the other hand, I've only read 34 books so far this year.

Finished the book on the U.S. Capitol and now I'm starting to reread the excellent Gerald Posner book on MLK assassin James Earl Ray and the circumstances surrounding the King murder.

I just finished Building Harlequin's Moon by Larry Niven and Brenda Cooper, and will be moving on to Snuff by Terry Pratchett for my morning commute tomorrow. (Don't worry, I'll be on a bus. )
