So, I got this Kobo thing for Christmas. I read a good deal and this thing has been great. I won’t get into a big advertisement/review for it, but since getting this neat gadget, I’ve actually increased my reading, significantly. I mostly read non-fiction, but I’ve been getting into a few novels, based on recommendations and reviews – not to mention the fact that the American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hit theatres a little while ago and I wanted to read the book first. 🙂
As I’ve worked from one book to the next, I realized that I don’t really know anything about popular books (not unlike my knowledge of popular music I suppose). I don’t know what’s hot or what’s any good. The vast majority of my reading consists of non-fiction, technical, music (industry, spirituality, history) and classics.
That said, I’m wondering what you’re reading. Any recommendations? Any brutal pieces of garbage to avoid? Fiction? Non-fiction? Let me know by leaving a reply right here, or send me a message over Twitter and I’ll read your selection over the air.
As always, I’ve got a lot of music lined up for today. Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 and check this page for a playlist during the show.
