Very quickly, because I should be in bed, but I want to start doing these:

What I'm reading

Paul Laurence Dunbar's Sport of the Gods, for my Black Literature class. I'm only about 10% of the way through it so far, so I can't review it yet. The writing is good so far, though.

Penn Jillette's Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!: Eh. Basically a transcript of rambly rants, sometimes funny, but mostly all over the place.

What I've just read

The Scarpetta Factor, Patricia Cornwell. These are all of a piece, to me. Not challenging, not earth-shattering, just brain candy when I don't feel like reading anything too meaty.

Best Words, Best Order, Stephen Dobyns. For school. Uneven but usually thought-provoking. Sometimes elitist. Mostly, though, very good advice on poetics/prosody.

What I'll read next

Existence, David Brin. [livejournal.com profile] hitchhiker recommended it to me. Just now finished the Cornwell, and this one's next.
