On my personal reading list, a friend just added Greetings from Lake Wu by Jay Lake and Saffron and Brimstone: Strange Stories by Elizabeth Hand to my growing pile (seriously, I am a manic book buyer who has less time for reading) of anthos and collections. These days I'm a grazer, unable to commit to reading a novel - the last one I tried and abandoned was the abyssmal The Dragon's Nine Sons by Chris Roberson, an author who writes excellent short fiction (oh, and I am making progress on my guerilla reading of my Jose Saramagos).
It's short fiction that I consume the most, really.
The last non-fiction book I finished (overnight) was Discover's 20 Things You Didn't Know About Everything: Duct Tape, Airport Security, Your Body, Sex in Space...and More! - just the sort of thing that perks me up in the wee hours of the morning when stories refuse to cooperate (haha).
The latest story I listened to was Nikki reading from the kickass The Annotated Classic Fairy Tales by Maria Tatar, a hefty hardcover that can kill a man by sheer weight. Last night was "Bluebeard", the night before featured my personal favorite fairy tale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon".
Nikki consumes something like a novel every two days (she reads inhumanly fast). Sometime last week, I saw her with The Orphan's Tales: In the Cities of Coin and Spice by Catherynne Valente. Recently,she gave in the persistent movie trailers (even I am sold - it appeals to some of the things I enjoy most in a narrative) and is now reading a copy of The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory.
