October 2009: Go on, what are you reading?

Filed in Gather Books Essential by on October 7, 2009 0 Comments

The other day we opened the fireplace grate and had the first fire of the season. A few feet away the big dogs stretched out in the warmth, and we crashed on the couch as I read aloud a few chapters from Kate DiCamillo’s The Magician’s Elephant. That was pretty much perfect. We’re only about a 1/3rd of the way through the book, although after seeing DiCamillo at the Fitzgerald Theater (wayyy back on 9/20/2009) talking about it, I can’t wait to really get more of the story read.

At work, a colleague tossed me a copy of “All About CB Two-Way Radio” from Radio Shack. More precisely, it is from Radio Shack’s Editorial and Technical Staff and time-traveled from 1976. I pick it up on breaks (not breaker-breaker breaks) and laugh and laugh. And learn.

For whatever it is worth it looks like I won’t be reading Gourmet magazine, but those are the breaks in the wild world of publishing.

What are you reading? What do you wish you were reading? What would you recommend other people read?
