Original Starting post for this thread:
Threads for critters, gardening, dinner, movies, etc. Does anyone read any more? What are you reading, do you recommend it, and why or why not?

My most recent read is Natasha Trethewey's "Beyond Katrina," a collection of poems and prose about the Mississippi gulf coast. I fell in love with her the first time I met her and heard her read, several years ago. In this work she confronts racism, urban development, and the way in which natural disasters reveal seams in our society. But she does so through observations about individual persons and their experiences. A very good read.

I haven't read a fiction book in many years. I don't know why I just don't find them interesting anymore. Or rather, interesting enough to hold my attention.

I do read books on science, economics, etc. I also do a lot of kakuro (math puzzles). I always take the hardest ones I can find, and I complete only maybe 20% of them before I screw something up.

"But don't think for a second that I'm seeking to be interesting or intelligent"

Well, when asked whatcha reading you could at least answer with a book title. So you're way ahead of some ....

"A Bright and Shining Lie" - Neil Sheehan

But don't think for a second that I'm seeking to be interesting or intelligent as I clearly avoid both...at all cost.
