It's Monday! (Tuesday) What Are You Reading?

Well I'm lingering on my current reads and DNF'd two that weren't holding my attention. I'm loving Louis de Bernieres's Corelli's Mandolin; I feel like this is one of those "where have you been all my life?" books. Like, why have I never read this? It's amazing. I've heard the movie is pretty bad though I'll probably end up watching it anyway, just to see.

Today I'm starting Ned Beaman's The Teleportation Accident, which is not science fiction despite the title. My husband read it thinking it would be sci fi but quickly discovered it was mere literary fiction. Nonetheless he really enjoyed it and has been encouraging me to read it ever since. And since May is Recommendations Month, I can hardly say no.

Europa-wise, I'm looking forward to starting Maurizio de Giovanni's I Will Have Vengeance as soon as possible. My crime customers at the bookstore are raving about this one; I have to check it out!

My current audiobook is Ben Macintyre's Double Cross, about World War 2 double agents. It's great!

I'm anxious to hear about Corelli's Mandolin. I've never read a bad review of it that is for sure. I am very close to finishing The Dinner on audio...holy CRAP this is a wild-ass ride. Just when you think you've got a handle on the situation, then BAM something else comes up.

I loved Captain Corelli's Mandolin. What a special read that is!

Interesting titles you have. I'm reading, for the first time, Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky.

Corelli's Mandolin is one of my all-time favorites, but I refuse to see the movie. SO glad you're loving it, too!
