Half of a Yellow Sun, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I'd been looking for it for years, and found it on the bargain shelf today, after my Kindle fell asleep on me. The perfect timing.

It's magical, that's how I know it'll work. Also, the previous owner left two, small, unused post-it notes in there. Score!

Finished Cabal. For some reason I was expecting some sort of gothic tour de force; unfortunately Barker isn't a very good writer here, though he does have a few good ideas.

AWESOMENESS!!!

The only problem is that it's from the early 90s, so there have been 20+ years of finds/thoughts not covered. Not sure if there is a more recent edition, that's just what the library had. Still, it's fairly interesting thus far. But then, like any kid, maybe I just think it's fun looking at bones n stuff.

There's actually a free recording of the first 6 books read out in (ancient) Greek on Librivox. The reader is a native Greek speaker and uses the modern pronunciation.

I just picked up a copy of Elder Paisios of Mt. Athos, by Hieromonk Isaac. And I'm all excited and giddy about it... which maybe isn't the right frame of mind to be in when beginning to read it. So I think I'll wait to start it.  Cheesy
