As I mentioned on the podcast, I am reading Michael Palin's "Diaries 1969-1979: The Python Years", which if you're a Monty Python nerd like me, it's utterly fascinating.  Next up is Chuck Klosterman's "Downtown Owl".

I'm rereading the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, and am about halfway through The Two Towers right now.  There's going to be a bigger column about it sometime by the end of the summer.

After that, I think I'm going to pick up some more Dashiell Hammett novels--Red Harvest was awesome.  Maybe some other noir detective novels.  And I have a couple of history books I want to read, including rereading Battle Cry of Freedom.

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher. The Dresden Files are awesome.

Currently trying to read "Atlas Shugged" by Ayn Rand. I am making it about 3-4 pages at a time before I fall asleep...

Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but you still can't help but giggle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

The latest issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. It actually is a very good read
