Weekend Reading Round-Up

Read this week:

Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley (A light, entertaining piece of political satire about a very pretty, spitfire, gun-totin' cable TV show lady-judge who gets nominated to the Supreme Court -- but honestly, nothing will ever, ever in a million years, compare to the 2008 Presidential election so it almost seems mean to read anything that tries. In Buckley's defense, even though it was published last fall, he obviously wrote it before 2008 and had no idea how completely insane actual reality would get; how could he?)

Currently Reading:

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House by Eric Hodgins (see yesterday's post)

To Read:

The Girl in the Flammable Skirt by Aimee Bender (short story collection by author I met on Thursday at Skylight! Really looking forward to it, as I've heard fabulous things. Plus it's always nice to have a signed copy.)
