Reading List 2007 (9/65)

This week’s reading:

Darkfall, Dean Koontz
The Tailor of Panama, John le Carre
The Session, Judith Kelman
A Drink Before the War, Dennis Lehane
Darkness, Take My Hand, Dennis Lehane
Sacred, Dennis Lehane
Gone, Baby, Gone, Dennis Lehane
Prayers for Rain, Dennis Lehane
Unchosen: The Hidden Lives of Hasidic Rebels, Hella Winston

The secret to reading so much while at a crazy-busy conference? Have your plane delayed three hours, then have a loudly crying baby in the row behind you for the next six hours. I went through five books on the plane ride here alone, and another two while commuting down to Google to see my brother (who rules!! even if the Google campus makes me terribly bitter that I work in a windowless basement).

No reviews this week, except to say that I think I want to volunteer for Malkie Schwartz’s organization to help Hasidic rebels get their GED and go to college. Okay, also to add that Dennis Lehane is a great writer, even if his PIs get themselves in a little too much trouble to be believable. Okay, okay, and also to remind myself never to read Judith Kelman again; her characters range from wooden to aggravatingly wooden, and the Big Revelation just wasn’t.

Shabbat now. More on, well, everything when I get back.
