    Short stories by Kate Chopin from the 1890s. The stories are set near and sometimes in New Orleans. The stories themselves are okay but not spectacular, I enjoy the setting, the mixture of French and English too.

    Just finished reading Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut. I would recommend it, entertaining dark humor. Any ever read this?

    I have read several of his novels but not that one. I see I have at it home along with about 5 of his other novels, 2 of whom I read. I should get back to doing some reading lol. In fact I might start with 'Breakfast of Champions' and let you know whether I liked it. I always prefer reading if I can discuss what I'm reading with someone IRL or online

    Cormac Mccarthy recently released his first novels in over 15 years. I'm hoping to getting them read over Christmas break.

    So how was Cormac Mccarthy, b-dolo?


    I'm mostly reading Dutch SF now. Books to review & short stories to enjoy. My next read is a book by 7 Dutch authors. They all wrote a lengthy short story that can be read separately but is placed in the universe of a book they are each working on. It's a cool concept and they've been getting good press. I'm supposed to review it for a magazine.
