Books and busing

I've got a temporary position right now which has been great for the finances. Still looking for that elusive permanant position, but I'm sure it's out there, somewhere. The temp job is pretty far from home and I've been being a good commuter and taking the bus. The result has been a feast of reading. I haven't devoured books so quickly in a long time and I've been able to finally get to some long awaited books I had to put off while I was in school.

So far here's the list:

  • What is the what, by Dave Eggers (everyone should read this book)

  • The Girls, by Lois Lansens (surprisingly good)

  • The Hitchhikers Guide (a classic)

  • Massachusetts, California, Timbuktu, by Stephanie Rosenfeld (an emotional roller coaster)

  • Possible Side Effects, by Augusten Burroughs (so funny, I laughed really loud on the bus)

  • March, by Geraldine Brooks (disturbing)

It seems like there's more but my memory is failing me, again.

More later,
