    I love the Dexter series. Got a little too formulaic after the first few though.

    Still on Moby Dick.

    Just finished up the chapter on whale steaks and a hilarious but very racist chapter involving the ship's 90 year-old Black cook, and his lack of proper preparation of said whale meat steak. Same chapter involved a curse-filled religious style sermon to a bunch of feeding sharks.

    (I swear I'm NOT making that up!)

    The Croning by Laird Barron

    Creepy as hell re-telling of the Rumpelstiltskin legend. Lovecraft, Machen and Ligotti influences abound.

    Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I was really hesitant because she also wrote Eat, Pray, Love, but I saw a few bloggers I follow speaking very positively about this book. It's pretty good - the stuff on fear especially strikes a chord with me.

    It's taking a while because I'm just not making the right kind of time.

    Basically, I wanted to read OHMSS again...until I remembered how far into the series it is. I re-read CR a year or two ago, so I decided to start at #2....which is actually the only movie I've never seen (other than the farce Casino Royale)...because my mom was deathly terrified of snakes, and I started watching them with her.

    I kind of hate them too, so we'll see how much it affects my enjoyment of the book.
