Been doing lots of reading, too. Recently the 9/11 Commission Report (long; interesting), The Lovely Bones (recommended), Platform (dark and compelling), Evening (moving), Prime Obsession (excellently done). I also tried to read The Kalahari Typing School For Men but gave up. Whatever the big deal about these books is, it seems to completely pass me by. Steve would like you to consider reading his insect-infested blog, which I can highly recommend now it has an RSS feed.
