Dracula - Bram Stoker. Figured I should probably read it.
Time to bump this back up!

I've recently finished the following books:

The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall - very good, Neil Gaiman meets Ernest Hemingway. :P

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - I love his young adult stuff! This was a very quick book, but I enjoyed it greatly. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, ghouls, and more!

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling - I really like fairy tales and folk tales, so of course I love the ones from Hogwarts, even though I'm a muggle.

Delta of Venus by Anais Nin - I was curious, and my curiosity is now satisfied. ;)

Just finished Oliver Sacks' old The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, and will probably go back and reread A Sense of Where You Are by John McPhee.

Sorry I know this is a late post lol..... What exactly is 'Hacking the Xbox' surely Microsoft would prohibit such a book. (Not that I want them to.....I'm All for Modding)
By all means, Microsoft tried. The book's original publishers pulled out and left the author to find a new one.
Just finished reading I am legend, and then I watched the film witch I bought on dvd, I preferred the book, but then thats usually the case with me.

  • Tears of the Giraffe (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Book 2)
  • Morality for Beautiful Girls (Book 3)
  • The Kalahari Typing School for Men (Book 4)
(All by Alexander McCall Smith)
I read the first in this series (No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) some time ago, and picked up the next three at a book fair recently and polished them off in short order. The premise is that one Precious Ramotswe, a woman resident of Botswana Africa, takes her modest inheritance and founds that countries first Detective Agency owned by a woman. The books cover her adventures in solving cases, running a business, and getting on with her life.
Precious is not the hard-boiled detective found in many American detective stories (Marlowe, Rockford, Magnum, etc.) Botswana is a kinder, gentler place, and these books are best described as quaint. I like them, though I'm left with a slightly uncomfortable feeling that I'm reading some old white guy's fantasy of the way things are, that might be as unintentionally racist and offensive as those happy, singing, plantation slaves in some older tales of the US deep south. (The consensus on the net is NOT; you can find the discussions yourselves if you're so inclined. I didn't seen any opinions posted from black female Botswani, however...)
The books are entertaining and nicely upbeat; recommended!
