Reading Update

I'm currently reading HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX. I'm about 4 years behind on the Harry juggernaut, sue me. (I was going to include a link to the book, but come on, if you don't own one by now you're not going to buy it because of a stupid blog link). And anyone who thinks they're too old to read a Harry Potter book, watch out before I smack you with my hardcover copy of
LITTLE TOOT. Going good so far, my only complaint is that at 870 pages the book is so darn thick I can't read it during my morning commute on the sardine can that is the 4 train.

One of the best things about this series is Rowling's ability to give every single chapter its own story arc. Not many books have you ending a chapter with both catharsis and anticipation.

Recently finished George Pelecanos's
THE NIGHT GARDENER (because I'm a fan of being the 18,815th person to comment on a book). A simply heartbreaking ending, and some of the most emotional and wrenching scenes between a father and son I've ever read. Oh yeah, it's a crime novel. So is LITTLE TOOT if you think about it.
