“I’m reading ‘This is the Faith,’ by Canon Francis Ripley. It’s a book about Catholicism and why Catholics believe what they believe.”

A New Earth,’ by Eckhart Tolle. It’s about nonduality. He’s a great teacher. He has many books and CDs, but has recently released his first DVD of a lecture he gave.”

“I just read ‘Sophie’s Choice,’ by William Styron. It’s about a woman who was sent to a concentration camp for stealing food, but it’s really more about how it affected her psychologically and how it affects her relationships with others.”

I have broken off from my political reading material to go back to an old favourite subject, British Crime Drama. Specifically, Chief Inspector Banks of the West Yorkshire Constabulary. I have read many of these stories written by Peter Robinson. Mr Robinson is a product of the Yorkshire Dales but is a Canadian transplant living in Toronto.
I have enjoyed immensely all of the Inspector Banks stories and heartily recommend then to all lovers of Crime Drama.

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. A group of people attending a birthday party for a Japanese businessman featuring a famous opera singer are taken hostage in an unnamed South American country. Supposedly the terrorists and hostages form some sort of bond. I'm not there yet.

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts A great read...compelling, filled with passion & adventure, and a wild gallery of exciting characters. Essentially an autobiography of an escaped prisoner from Australia, living in Bombay.

the acts of king arthur's court ... retold by john steinbeck. very nicely written compelling stories of the old knights' lives. it is, well, mythology.

nice analysis of "sophie's choice" that fellow looks very bright.

MSC, the only crime drama I read is written by Bill Pronzini. he writes very different mysteries with good psychological insight on characters and perps.
