Currently Reading

1. Shanghai Moon by SJ Rozan (audio).
About 3/4 complete. I feel like Knowing's cat Trinity. When I eat something I like, I gorge and feel nauseated, but cannot stop. I'm already looking forward to reading the complete Bill Smith/Lydia Chin series from the first entry, China Trade.

2. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People by Toby Young.
This is supposed to be my bedtime relaxation fluff, but it is funny, sarcastic, and astute and takes aim at everyone: New Yorkers, Americans, Britons, Brit expats in New York, celebrities, journalists, magazine publishers. The author's breezy and cynical prose makes it a bit hard to put down and thus has been encroaching on my precious sleep time.

3. The science fiction novel by James Tiptree, Jr.
I was half way through --- a bit slow but interesting --- before Rozan gripped my heart. Don't know when I'll go back to it.
