1. What are you reading right now?
I have two books on my night stand: 'This Time is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly', by Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff; and 'Censored 2013: The Top Censored Stories and Media Analysis of 2011-2012', by Mickey Huff and Andy Roth. I started the first of those about three weeks ago and found it a bit dry, which allowed me to be quickly distracted by the latter (which I'm actively reading).

2. What did you last finish reading?
'Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt', by Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco. A clever blend of Hedges' prose and Sacco's illustrations, it looks at capitalism's 'sacrifice zones' across the United States (including Camden New Jersey, and the coal mining operations of West Virginia). I recommend it.

3. What will you read next?
Too many choices! Either 'The Untold History of the United States' by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick, or 'The Energy of Slaves: Oil and The New Servitude' by Andrew Nikiforuk. I'll probably wind up jumping back and forth between them, as I often do with books.

hey thanks very much for checking my music out. (yeah one of the reasons i ask for an email address is so i know who cares enough.)

i'm posting an LJ comment instead of an email because i'm very pleased to see people still use the service. i'm still a paid member but for some reason i just don't post a lot.
