    Not very far into,but good so far.
    If there is one thing the main character knows is that a women's sexuality is directly related to the size of her areola.

    This autobiography is going to rank up there with one of the best music bios I've come across.  Really, really good!

    On book 4, Age of Legend.
    Michael Sullivan.
    Very good series - the first three were page turners.
    2 more after this one....I like when the series is already done and you can binge read it 
    Waiting a year or two between books and forgetting so many plot points kinda sucks.
    This series would make a killer show.


    Age of Death
    and then the last one....
    Age of Empyre


    The back half was not quite as good as the first, although it might make for better television adaptation.  Good series, glad I read.

    Folks over on Twitter are giving NYT Books the business for this inaccurate story. Many creative responses giving the proper credit to Mary Shelley, but I think this was one of my favorites...

    Just started this one, one of those books that somehow got lost in the shelves among other music books and forgotten about.  How could it be?!  I met Bill Minor in the summer of '85 at a writing workshop.  He's an amazing jazz/poet soul well deserving of the description "cool".  Looking forward to this long-overdue read!

    First read Dune about a year ago in anticipation of the Denis Villeneuve film. He is my favorite working director. Really loved the book, and seeing the film made me really want to read it again, as well as the other 5 Frank Herbert sequels. Which I hear get progressively weirder as they go on. 

    Anyone have any experience past the first novel?

    5 Sequels?!?! I have not read, or even knew that there were, any of em. If you plan on taking the dive let me know how they are. Dune was great.

    I read some way back when, can't remember where I left off.  I liked them but must have tailed off or I would likely have finished.

    There’s actually a ton of sequels, but only the first 6 books are by Frank Herbert. His son and some other guy took over after that and milk the franchise for everything it’s worth. Most fans of the Frank Herbert books hate anything beyond the first 6.

    only a few pages in on a very short book,
    but haunting, to put it mildly.

    Last night, I started reading Malcolm Margolin's The Ohlone Way.  The writing is beautiful and, having grown up in the Bay Area, this is an overdue read for me and one I'm certain to appreciate.  The first chapter, which describes the land, animal life, and climate of this area as it was 200 years ago, was very disturbing to me to read.  The vast abundance of wildlife that existed then ("To the Ohlone, the grizzly bear must have been omnipresent, yet today there is not a single wild grizzly bear left in all of California") which is now gone,  the behavior of animals so totally changed ("Foxes, which are now very secretive, were virtually underfoot"), the climate that was moist, now turned semi-arid... all of this changed in a mere 200 years.  This is hugely unsettling.
    But I will look forward to settling into this one and perhaps, as Margolin suggests in the Introduction:
    "If we look long enough, if we dwell on their joy, fear, and reverence, we may in the end catch glimpses of almost forgotten aspects of our own selves."
