This Bitch Be Reading

Working in a bookstore and taking long bus rides assures one thing: I read lots of books now. I probably average a book per week. I remember struggling to get through one book every few months when I worked at the tv station. If you don’t count the shitload of comics & graphic novels and the books I have forgotten, here is the list of books I have read cover-to-cover this year:

Tao Te Ching-Lao Tzu
Tales of the Otori 1: Across the Nightingale Floor-Lian Hearn
Tales of the Otori 2: Grass For His Pillow-Lian Hearn
Eager-Helen Fox
A History of God-Karen Armstrong
Night-Elie Wiesel
A Wild Ride Through the Night-Walter Moers
The Time Machine-H.G. Wells
50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know-Russ Kick
The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman-Bruce Robinson
The Princess Bride-William Goldman
Tezuka School of Animation Vol.1-Tezuka Productions
Gulliver’s Travels-Jonathan Swift
How to Hunt Ghosts-Joshua P. Warren
T. Rex and the Crater of Doom-Walter Alvarez
Rebel Without a Crew-Robert Rodriguez
Faster Than the Speed of Light-Joao Magueijo
Running With Scissors-Augusten Burroughs
The Shortest Distance Between You and a Published Book-Susan Page
Napoleon’s Art of War-Napoleon Bonaparte
Monkey: A Journey to the West
The Little Prince-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Ishmael-Daniel Quinn
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain-Betty Edwards
Meditation-Eknath Easwaran

Right now I am reading No-Budget Digital Filmmaking by Chuck Gloman to be followed by One River by Wade Davis (who wrote the awesome Serpent and the Rainbow I read last year). I’m trolling through Paradise Lost-Milton off and on as the year progresses. Shit, that’s a lot of books in half a year.
