reading/writing, books

(no subject)

I finished reading Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope this morning, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I feel like I got a feel for who he is as a person as well as what his ideas are.

Now I'm moving on to something fluffy, which I can read quickly, for a change of pace. The book is Beauty, by Robin McKinley, and it's a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. I read about half of it this afternoon, and it's pretty standard fairy tale fare. But, hey, I like fairy tales, so I'm enjoying it.

Next I'm going to read David Simon's Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, upon which the tv series Homicide was based. I've got it on loan from the library.
