Lost (in books) in Los Angeles

I spend six days a week around books, then come home and play with them some more. Won't you help me play?

Currently reading

Cat's Cradle

The Arabian Nights: Tales from a Thousand and One Nights

Death of Kings

West of the West: Dreamers, Believers, Builders, and Killers in the Golden State - Mark Arax I felt like it had been too long since I read some non-fiction, so I gave this book a try. The essays were good, interesting stories (not enough killers for my taste, but what can you do), and I learned a few things about California. Where the best pot is grown, for instance. How the founder of Zankou Chicken killed his mother and sister in a murder suicide. Little things like that.
