WWW Wednesdays (May 30)

So I don't seem to space out the timing of my posts very well.  Whatever... Time for WWW Wednesdays! (Hosted by Should be Reading)

What are you currently reading?
Right now I'm reading "House of Leaves" by Mark Danielewski  I'm only about 50 pages in and though I have some issues with the frame narrator (Does every book written in the 90s have to have a slacker protagonist?) it's one of the most engaging books I've read for a while and I have a feeling it could take a twist at any point so I'm crossing my fingers that the frame narrator will turn out more interesting than he first appears.

What did you recently finish reading?
"Invisible Cities" by Italo Calvino.  The review will be shortly forthcoming but the book was as brilliant as I hoped it would be.

What do you think you'll read next?
Probably "The Crying of Lot 49" by Thomas Pychon.  I've been wanting to read a Pychon book for a while and "The Crying of Lot 49" seems like the most sensible place to get a taste.  After that, I think I'll take a break from the post modern but I haven't decided on a book yet.


  1. Hi there! I've not heard of your books. My list is at

  2. I like to mix up the genres that I read also. I get tired of reading one genre too much in a row.

    Here's my post:


  3. Great authors. I've not read any of these books but I have read other Italo Calvino books.

  4. Sound like some interesting reads. Here's my link:

  5. Oohhh. You read interesting books. I really enjoyed House of Leaves - even though it seems more of a novelty to me.

  6. You have an interesting mix of books there. I hope that you enjoy them all.
