well right now
i'm reading a book called "positively fifth street," which is about the world series of poker, murder and mayhem. good stuff. nonfiction. happened to see it on the rack at b dalton.
i definitely find the media to be repetitive. every newspaper runs the same reviews on the same books. every newspaper wants to be the "one" people read so if the times runs a review, usa today wants a review on the same book and so does the local paper. on and on. then it's covered on the today show, etc.
my other book recommendations come really indirectly, i guess, mainly from those other sites i mentioned.
