so what are you reading right now?
alternately, what's the last thing you read that made you want to walk up to strangers, thrust the book at them and say, "READ THIS! g'head, i'll wait!"*
i'm reading arrow of the blue skinned god by jonah blank. it's a half a re-telling of the ramayana** and half a travelogue by a man who re-traced rama's journey in modern times. it's very cool, if you like india and/or hindu mythology. (which i do!) :)
i'm listening to in the garden of beasts, which is quite wonderful but rather depressing, being set in berlin, 1933, where the nazis are gaining power, the holocaust is brewing, and our luxurious 20/20 hindsight tells us that the worst is yet to come. (a much less horrifying book by erik larson is the devil in the white city!)
but i am still looking for a few good reads, so i'd ♥love♥ to hear your input!
i may be spending a bit of time on airplanes in october... and on the beach... good readin' venues... just sayin'... :) :) :)
*i mean metaphorically. irl, this would probably be a bad idea. unless you're oprah, in which case, carry on!
**speaking of the ramayana... sita sings the blues is one of the best and most original films i have ever seen. even if you're NOT very interested in the subject (india; hindu folk tales) it's arguably worth watching just for the amazing and unique animation style(s)! truly mind-blowing!
