Thread: What are you reading now?

    Doors of Perception - Huxley. Yep, again.

    Also, Eat Bacon Don't Jog - Petersen
    It all starts with a name and flows from there. A ridiculous moniker springs to mind and it launches like a multi-lubed slippery-sloop down chutes made of buttery-floops. Down, down, down. We watch, spellbound. Rapturous. Glockenspiel. We do our due diligence with penitence and penicillin. Do whatís due, then dew drops on your moon-pops.

    Interesting titles Pluralized, and Huxley, that name rings a bell. I might just look out for those two.

    I've read Brave New World, excellent book. Doors of Perception is a collection of essays on psychedelics and art if I remember correctly? I was interested in reading it a couple of years ago, but couldn't find a cheap copy at the bookstore.

    I'm reading Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. Just finished Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and The Glass Highway ​by Loren D. Estleman not long before that.

    Just finished Gaiman's 'Smoke and Mirrors', starting in on his Norse myths. Also got Wolf Hall going and the prelude to the Canterbury tales.

    I seem to be set fair for some reading material, for now at least, good, or not, being a matter of opinion of course. I just finished "City of Friends" by Joanna Trollope , very similar to those of Binchy's imo and very much enjoyed.

    Also, I may have found, I think, some good reads with a small series of murder mystery tales featuring one Agatha Raisin, a kind of amateur sleuth, written by M.C.Beaton, so, for now, all is looking good on the reading front here in dithering...
