It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished Elders, and I'm DNF'ing In the Time of the Butterflies for now. It's good, I just never seem to be in the mood to pick it up, so I'll set it aside for now.

I started reading Alfa Romeo 1300 and Other Miracles, by Fabio Bartolomei. This is a comic-ish novel about three middle aged guys who start a bed and breakfast together in rural Italy, only to run into trouble right away with the local Mafia. It's written as a black comedy and satire, and I'm 3/4 of the way through and can't wait to see what the climax eventually is.

I did the same thing (and for the same reason) with In the Time of the Butterflies a few months ago... haven't gotten back to it yet.
