Books To Be Read

I just used some of my Christmas money to order me some books.

Behold! The books which wing their way to me through the postal system:

The Book of Joby

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

I, Claudius

As I wait I am in the middle of another novel, which we'll actually discuss here later. I've been waiting to write a glowing post about how great Dave Egger's What Is The What is, but haven't gotten to it. Allow me simply to say, find it and read it. It matters.


  1. Well, look who it is... me. Hey Matt. I found your blog by a comment you left on the Latvalas blog. I mean, I've been following you for years, I just finally decided to come clean. Seriously though, I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night last summer and dug it. Yes, dug... it. Joe is a fan or Sherlock Holmes which, as you probably already know, the title comes from. Anyway, just thought I'd drop a note. I like your sleep poem. Please tell Krista I said I still think she's the bizzomb. Check me, but don't wreck me at, where you'll find my email as well.
    ...and I'm outtie 5000,

  2. Finished What is the What a few weeks ago. It was really good.
