I can hardly remember where I left off, but I believe I was starting to read Pride and Prejudice on the Kindle. Really enjoyable and fun read as always.
After that I picked up The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves by M.T. Anderson. I loved the first volume -- The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol. 1: The Pox Party -- and decided I had to read the follow up. It was as good, if not better than the first book and I highly recommend them. They fall into one of my favorite genres, historically based fiction. This book leads into the Revolutionary war and follows Octavian Nothing as he fights first for the Rebels and then for the Redcoats trying to figure out who will give him his freedom with all this talk of liberty.
I read Blankets by Craig Thompson ages ago and knew that he had another much loved graphic novel called Good-bye, Chunky Rice but hadn't seen it available anywhere, so as soon as I saw it at the library, I snagged it. It's a wonderfully sad little story and was a joy to read.
Thoreau at Walden by John Porcellino is a nice little volume composed mostly of quotes from Walden, mixed with endearing illustrations -- Thoreau and a friendly mouse, Thoreau working in his garden, and Thoreau enjoying nature. I think it is a fun read and a nice introduction to Walden for younger readers.
Right now I'm completely caught up in Updike's Rabbit Redux -- the second Rabbit Angstrom book. Incredible books (like Phillip Roth, but so much better -- more restrained and less egotistical.)
