The book I am currently reading is about the San Fran earthquake of 1906. It is well written, which should be expected from this best selling author, and fascinating.

Did that help? I'm not very wordy these days

Just finished David Sedaris' When You Are Engulfed in Flames.
It is probably my favorite Sedaris. Simply wonderful, sometimes so tender and sad, sometimes laugh out loud funny. Often both at once.

Beginning The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.

After that, My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell.
