It's Monday-What Are You Reading?

Well, this Monday I'm reading three books.

For the Europa Challenge, I'm reading Get Me Out of Here, by Henry Sutton, a recent Europa title about an alarming gentleman with a habit of prevarication, obfuscation and possibly, murder. And he likes designer clothes a lot, too. It's been described as a 21st-century American Psycho and I can see why! It's a lot of fun and I can't wait to see where it all winds up.
I'm also enjoying the tail end of Jeanette Winterson's The Stone Gods, a strange literary/science fiction novel about exploration, the future, the past and the planet. It's a lot to pack into a slim volume! After that, probably later today, I'll be starting Song of Time, by Ian R. McLeod, about a mysterious man who comes up out of the sea. It was highly touted at the 2009 Readercon as "literary SF." I've had it on my shelf ever since and reading it was one of the major motivations behind SF Month.

Finally, I'm still working my way through the audio version of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. I'm doing a listen-along with Jen of Literate Housewife and Jason of Brain Candy Book Reviews, and I'm so pitifully far behind that the group discussion was postponed a week to give me time to finish. So I'd better get back to it! It's one of my all-time favorite books- I read it in print years ago- and I'm enjoying the audio very much.
