    I just finished reading “The Violent Bear it Away” by Flannery O’Connor and “The Sounds of Waves” by Yukio Mishima.

    Flannery O’Connor rules all sorts of awesomeness!

    And I am currently reading Scott Fitzerald's "This Side of Paradise" and Stephen King's "Dolores Clairborne."

    Books, like boobs, are best when they come in pairs.

    Right now I'm reading Genghis Birth of an Empire by Conn Iggulden. Historical fiction a good read with it's battles and great story.

    Postcards from Moscow.
    It's letters written from the US Ambassador to the Soviet Union's wife from 1949-1951. It's fascinating to take in her assessment of post WWII Russia. I bought it for 3 dollars in an antique store in Bakersfield.

    Think I might pick that up.


    As for me, its Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson - 'the eyewitness account of operation Redwing and the lost heroes of seal team 10'
