Books I Am Currently Reading:
nonfiction: DE KOONING: AN AMERICAN MASTER (Mark Stevens, Annalyn Swan)
I am having a real love affair with this book. Just the sight of it — lying there on my bedside table in its sexy jacket — gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
fiction: A GAME OF THRONES (A Song of Fire and Ice, Book 1) George R. R. Martin
I’ve been away from epic fantasy for a long time and had no real desire to get back to it; other fields of fiction had claimed my attention and you know how the song goes, too many books and only one life. But this is George R.R. Martin, and so I thought I’d give the first chapters a try just to satisfy my curiosity, and damn if I didn’t get hooked. So not only do I find myself addicted to a bloody 700-page saga, I do so knowing there are three more in the series waiting to be consumed in the same reckless, heady, oh-look-the-house-is-burning-but-first-let-me-finish-this-chapter kind of gulps, when I already have a towering pile of to-be-read books to be eyed with deep longing on a regular basis.
What was supposed to be a one-night experimental fling has morphed into a bloody relationship. Aargh.
