Just finished How Soccer Explains the World, still reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and have started re-reading Neverwhere. I'm not sure what non-fiction I want to pick up next. Must check the pile...

Just finished Carry On, Jeeves by Wodehouse. And just started Up The Junction by Nell Dunn. Guess I'm on a bit of a Brit kick at the moment.

Getting close to finishing Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Punk: The Definitive Record of a Revolution by Stephen Colgrave and Chris Sullivan. Up next, finishing The Replacements: All Over but the Shouting: An oral history by Jim Walsh and the 33and a third book on "Pet Sounds," which I've had for a couple of years, but haven't read yet.

Death By Black Hole by Neil deGrasse Tyson. Quite enjoying it. Just finished a chapter about how the invention of the prism changed the course of astronomy. Heard Dark Side of the Moon in my head the whole time.

I just finished Billy Bathgate and a Minette Walters book, and am now itching for something trashy and mindless to read. After that...Age of Innocence.

Tired of the Art Garfunkle list? Try this: 1001 books to read before you die. It's flawed, naturally, but what list isn't? Oh, and before you grouse, one of the major flaws is there is no non-fiction. So don't say I didn't warn you.
