I'm reading Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. I don't know how well known it is. First published in 1889, it's incredibly relevant in today's world. And VERY funny.

Also on the list..... the second Harry Potter book, before I see the movie......

Geesh.... I need to see a movie that isn't based on a book!!

Or..... I need to read a book that isn't being made into a movie!!

I think you'll have more choices if you go with the book not being made into a movie option.

I loved "Three men in a boat, to say nothing of the dog" - haven't read it for a while - but might just go and search it out. It could well suit my mood just now!

I just finished re-reading "Lolita" -- next up is either the latest Kinky Friedman, which the hubby says is OK but certainly not his best, or "Fury" by Salman Rushdie.

I began FROM THE DUST RETURNED by Ray Bradbury, but I am too disappointed to finish it.
So now I am reading the unauthorized biography of Frank Sinatra.

BASSotC is a mix -- not all heavy. Highly recommend it.

I was speaking more about the other two.
BASSotC sounds like a good book to invest in.
