Hey, @Epignosis. Guess what I'm reading now. :grin:

Clue #1: On my phone, since it's not in stock or even translated.

Clue #2: Long enough to probably take me until March, considering how I've mishandled Atwood this summer.

Clue #3: What the heck are alewives?

Well it was either that or https://www.amazon.com/Big-New-Yorker-B ... 0679644776.

You've interpreted "not found or translated in Nauru" with obscure, though, which I wouldn't say is the case.

Yeah, I never would've guessed.

Just finished reading Agatha Christie's Murder in the Links.

It's a pretty fucking great book. Has a zillion plot twists and like every book from Agatha, it's engineered to make you fail to guess them. Not my favorite book from her though, because they are all amazing. But great.

My reading progress through September 30th. Chicka Chicka is sucking up my soul. I've read maybe two pages since October 1st.

I started to re-read 4.50 from Paddington a while back. I decided I was going to buy more of her collection, but I never had the chance.

I am currently reading Meddling Kids. It's a fun take on a Scooby Doo parody. The target demographic is not the same though, that's for sure.

I just finished Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential," which I picked up for a quarter at a library used book sale. It's hugely entertaining — the guy is an amateur writer, but he loves his subject and uses the language of his people (chefs) to great effect. Recommended.

I am in the middle of Sam Sykes Bring Down Heaven trilogy. It is a really good time, funny, smart, supernatural. I have been told that is like the best DnD game ever-- as I never played that I can't exactly give you an answer there. But it made me snicker three or four times in the first chapter of the first book and I have laughed out loud several other times.

I am also in love with an ancillary character Kudj and I am so worried he is gonna die. :eek: :why: Love= Death people. Love = Death.

Back in the reading habit again. Still fighting through the dictionary. I'm into letter U now though, so it's pretty easy sailing from here on out.

Interesting words from January:
-Times sign
-Today
-Toss
-Tragus
-Trump
-Turnspit
-Turtle/Turtledove
