What am I reading now?
* The Proud Tower by Barbara Tuchman - for book club
* Disciples by Chieko Okazaki - because she's the only LDS author I can relate to
* Break in the Sun by Peki - my d/g fix
* Nine Hills to Nambonkaha: Two Years in the Heart of an African Village by Sarah Erdman - heartily recommended by someone I greatly respect at Peace Corps
* Vu, Lu, Entendu (Seen, Read, Understood) by Driss Chraibi - because I like to torture myself by pretending I can read fluently in French (MoBob says this author is "too intellectual" for him)

I try to read as much as I can during my commute on the Metro (a solid twenty minutes) but since the track is above ground I tend to zone and stare out the window. I think it's the only time when I'm not actively doing something like squint at a document or a computer screen. Since I have a trip coming up I'll bring some work materials that I haven't had a chance to read (cluster munitions, yay) and something fun from the library's recent acquisitions section. Usually, I'm embarrassed to say, chick lit.
