I don’t know Miranda July, or her book, but I think the website about it is very amusing! 🙂

Mash: A Novel About Three Army DoctorsIn between work and errands I’ve read M*A*S*H, the original novel by Richard Hooker. It’s interesting to find out how a figure like Frank Burns is only a single chapter event in the book, and getting background information about the doctors that I don’t remember getting from the series. Of course there are the inevitable inconsistencies with the series as well, and it makes me want to rent the movie that was based on the book and which in turn inspired the series.

Foundation (Foundation Novels)Prelude to Foundation (Foundation Novels)While I have trouble finding time to read things that aren’t on a computer screen of some sort, I’ve been slipstreaming on the kids’ regularly scheduled reading record reading, which involves them reading 100 minutes a week, roughly 5 chunks of 20 minutes.

Recently I’ve read these two books from Isaac Asimov‘s Foundation series:

Actually I’ve read them before, but it’s been so long now that it almost is like reading them for the first time and with the added years I’m probably noticing things I missed 20 years ago! Now on to the rest of the series… and with a bit of luck I’ll finish it before 2008. 😉

iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing ItI picked it up last Saturday and am (slowly, one lunch break at a time, so to speak) reading it at the moment. Enjoying it so far. Wozniak’s sense of humour can be quirky at times but he’s such a geek that it’s easy to accept the times where I don’t think it’s as funny as he does. 😉
