What are you reading?

Short, quick post for a Friday. (TGIF!!!!!)

What are you reading?

Currently on my end table: Nora Roberts' Tribute, a book of short stories by noted Nebraska author Bess Streeter Aldrich, and Stephen King's On Writing (I'm re-reading bits and pieces of it).

What about you?

    I've never read anything by Joyce Carol Oates, so I'm trying her now. BLONDE, about the life of Marilyn Monroe. It's fascinating, but sad.

    Happy Weekend!

    Also, keeping book titles in lower case seems to be all the rage. What's up w/that?

  17. Last Night, short stories by James Salter, one of my favorite authors. The Lay of the Land by Richard Ford. And a couple of nonfictions: Fordlandia, about a planned city that Henry Ford tried to create in the heart of Brazil in the 1920s, and The Greatest Day in History, about the final few days of World War I.
