Reading Update

Argh! Teh read books are pilin' up! I have to just list them.

I never mentioned, I don't think, that I read Crystal Rain by Tobias Buckell (go read!) or re-read The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin (yay!)

Also read New Moon, the second book in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. I was horrified by it, but I'm going to read the third one before I rip on it so that I can tear the whole series (so far) a new asshole properly. A hint: I went looking for Meyer's religious affiliation, that's how horrifying the book is; turns out, she's Mormon.

I'm now re-reading The Dark is Rising series, because it's so wonderful! I'm starting with The Dark is Rising, though and not Over Sea, Under Stone, which was my least favorite of the five. Maybe it's a mistake, but I always read OS,US after TDIR and before Greenwitch, b/c I didn't like it, but Greenwitch is better if you read OS,US first.

I'm babbling.

I just started reading The Dark is Rising too, beginning with OSUS. What do you think of the whole cannibals in the jungle play scene at the beginning, or the bad guy dressing up as an Arab? Does one just read this with a grain of salt? What do you tell your kiddo about it?
I ask because I know issues of race are important to you, and I'm curious what you do when you read across stuff like that.

wow, i don't even remember those parts! it's been over 20 years since i read OSUS. since it was my least favorite of the five, i'm realizing that I might never have re-read it after i read it the first time as a kid. when i've re-read it, i'll let you know.
