Moonrat's update

Hi, folks! I haven't posted an update in a long time, but I'm still working pretty hard on my list.

I realize I have read the following since I last posted:

East of Eden, John Steinbeck
The Farming of Bones, Edwidge Danticat
The Known World, Michael Chabon
Werewolves in Their Youth, Michael Chabon

I've also read significant portions of David Copperfield and Moby Dick, but these are both titles I am working through slowly when I'm in the right mood.

I've also started trying to read a lot of classic crime fiction. It's a second (and less well-structured) reading project. Anyway--if you're a crime fiction reader, let me know some of your favorites. I'm very curious.

As for crime fiction, I love Jo Nesbo and Dennis Lehane, which are more modern. As for "classic" crime fiction, there's always Raymond Chandler's Farewell My Lovely and Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man.

And thanks for the inspiration, and reminder in a fashion, to post an update. I don't think I've done one in oh...(blushes) years.
