Spring reading turns to summer reading

Since my last post on the subject I’ve finished reading On The Road, Blood Meridian (or the Evening Redness in the West) by Cormac McCarthy, The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli, and begun Life at the Extremes: The Science of Survival by Frances Ashcroft.

I’m not digging this last one too much. It’s non-fiction, which I rarely read, but more than that it’s the kind of thing that’s really very interesting until you try reading it on the subway at the end of a long day. Kinda like that Ruby on Rails book I’ve spotted Ed reading on the way to work. A book like that has it’s place — I’ll let you know if figure out what that is.

That leaves me with another problem. I’m out of books. I got Extremes from Amol along with Blood Meridian — a fantastic book; I recommend it if you like the series Deadwood on HBO — and now I’m empty handed again. I guess I’ll have to hit up B&N for some more classic SciFi from my “someday” reading list. I’m always open to donations however…
