To play along, just answer the following three questions ...

• What are you currently reading? W Is for Wasted by Sue Grafton. Just started it, so I can't really say much about the mystery at the heart of the book. I am happy to report that the Pitts siblings have already made an appearance, and it looks like Henry is going to share his home with a stray cat he's named Ed.

• What did you recently finish reading? Lennon Revealed by Larry Kane. As a lifelong Beatle fan, I've read many, MANY books about The Lads and do recommend this one. The author not only actually knew John, he's a mainstream journalist -- not a fan or an entertainment writer. If there's a book-loving Beatle fan on your gift list, I suggest you consider this one. (Today would be John's birthday, so I'm glad I got to mention him.)

• What do you think you’ll read next? Five Days at Memorial about the Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans and how they coped during the crisis of Katrina. I meant to be read this now, and did in fact start it, but it was too intense for my state of mind just now. I'll return to it in a few weeks.

    I've been debating whether or not I want to read Memorial . . . I just don't think I'm up for such an emotionally draining book right now.
