What are you reading?

It's been a while since we've had one of these. Right now I'm reading "The Blind Assassin" by Margaret Atwood. It's been a while since I've read anything by her and I'm really enjoying it.

It's also been a while since I've used "it's been a while" multiple times in one post.

Re: What are you reading?

I'll play.

I just started Brothers Karamazov again.

As far as trek is concerned I am reading Wounds and Prime Directive.

I am also trying to get through The World According to Bertie by Alexander McCall Smith.

And I would like to start rereading Destiny. But I think I need to get through some of these first .

Her Cat's Eye is one of my most favorite books, ever. I'm reading Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Change Your Life.
