Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes. * Blogroll * Strange words * More links * Bookies * Microblog * Recent comments * Humans only * Second degree * By topic * Cool posts * Writing * New post

Recently read: Lots of really great stuff on my reading lists currently. I recommend:

Currently reading: Still Ghost spin, by Chris Moriarty. It was a bit slow to start in a way but it's picking up and is doing lots of cool stuff with the same character in multiple timelines.

Up next: The next thing on my extremely slow reading challenge list is A book with a color in the title. I've just sent most of my to-read books back to my real house with [personal profile] jack, so I can't look through them and see if anything qualifies. rysmiel gave me Burning days by Glenn Grant as a belated birthday present, so that's a likely choice. Or maybe some of the genuine Hugo nominees; I've been meaning to pick up Uprooted by Naomi Novik for a while.

I dont' know which you haven't read but I had a look through your bag of books in case it helps. I think "the pure gold baby" is the only one that looks to qualify, unless you could "chocolat" or "blood" as colours.

I read The Devil in the White City for that. It's nonfiction about the Chicago World Fair, and deeply compelling. Content notes: murder, suicide

The best suggestion otherwise I find in my recently-read list, is Bitter Lemons of Cyprus by Lawrence Durrell, which may or may not count, and wasn't quite as helpful for teaching me all about Cyprus as I hoped, but was interesting.
