I've gotten very tired of the banal excrement and bad news vomiting out of my television (except for some of the shows on Food Network - they're quite good), so I decided to do my summer reading this month.
The books are ones I've read before, but all the better for that - rereading a good book's like curling up with an old friend.
This is what's on the list for now:
The Iliad by Homer (Fagles translation)
Unfortunately, It Was Paradise by Mahmoud Darwish
Revenge of the Sith by Matt Stover
Napalm and Silly Putty by George Carlin
What's on your bedside table?
