I'm getting excited about going to Cleveland for the Bouchercon in about two and a half-weeks. But I'll blog about that later. Today I thought I'd tell you what we're reading here at the Black Lizard Lounge. Did I mention the light's terrible here? I hope I don't ruin my eyes. I don't think they want you to see the stains on the red vinyl booth cushions.
Anyhow, right now we're reading:
The Prince by Machiavelli
Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin
Winter in Madrid by C.J. Sansom and
The Prone Gunman by Jean-Patrick Manchette
The first two are for some classes I'm starting next week at Johns Hopkins. Winter in Madrid is my bedtime novel, and The Prone Gunman is my daily dose of noir.
We've recently finished:
Seven Slayers by Paul Cain, (Daily Dose of Noir)
Man-Eaters of Kumaon by Jim Corbett (thanks, Shane),
Black Friday by David Goodis, (DD of N)
King Lear by Wm. Shakespeare (for another Johns Hopkins),
Serena by Ron Rash and
The Gospel of Mark.
