I'm reading 'From the Earth to the Moon' right now. Finally got strated with reading some of Jules Verne's work.

Just finished a rather complete collection of HP Lovecraft, some I had read before and many I have not. Most were very enjoyable, but his foreshadowing often has the subtlety of an Oliver Stone film...

Starting a collection of Somerset Maugham's short stories and also EM Forster's A Passage to India.

Are you reading the SIx Stories in the First Person Singular collection? If so, enjoy! There is one--I believe called "Jane" that I really like but they are all good!

How do you like it so far Miss Golightly? I just bought it for my (French) wife.

I've literally just started it but am enjoying it so far - I read a few articles and reviews of it before buying it so know some of the "secrets" already! I would interested to know what your wife makes of it (particuarly from a French perspective) - do let me know if you get a chance!

Back to something a bit "weightier":

HELL's CARTEL: IG FARBEN and the making of HITLER"S WAR MACHINE
by Diarmuid Jeffreys



Having worked in the chemical industry all of my professional life, this appeals my professional curiosity as well as my love of history.

Reading "West with the Night" by Beryl Markham. Right up there with my favorites by St. Exupery--"Night Flight" and "Wind, Sand and Stars" (aka "Terre des Hommes")--seriously good stuff. I know, evryone talks about "Le Petit Prince" and yes that it brilliant but not the same. Occasionally I play golf at a local golf course where Amelia Earhart used to play--if I am lucky enough to be invited. She built a beautiful house right off the fairway and never returned to live in it. Early aviation is full of fascinating characters. Southern California is full of references to the fledgeling world of aviation......
