Weekend reading

Hey kids, today I posted chapter 2 of Mr. Abernathy. Go download it and put it in your weekend reading queue.

Speaking of reading, that’s something I haven’t done much of lately. Leisure reading, that is. I spend 16 hours a day, usually 7 days a week, reading and writing. But I haven’t cracked open a book just for fun since my week off back in September, and that’s just way too long.

The weather is supposed to be gorgeous here this weekend, so I’m going to find a silly “guilty pleasure” book and spend a few hours reading outdoors. I dunno, maybe something with zombies1. I think I owe it to my overworked self to let loose with an easy read.

So, other than my serial novel, what’s your most recent “guilty pleasure” read?

    Mary Roach’s “Bonk.” Utterly engrossing. Pee-your-pants hilarious. Time well spent.

    Ooh, good one. I loved “Spook” and “Stiff”.

    Stephen King’s “Cell”.

    It’s a couple years old, but it’s definitely a quick read and a guilty pleasure.

    Plus zombies! (of a sort)

    *ahem* that trashy tell-all book about Madonna by Madonna’s brother. Tough to figure out who’s the bigger a-hole in THAT story.

    I tell people I’m reading Tom Perkins’ “Valley Boy”, but my real guilty pleasure read is “7 Habits..” Ugh! I’m disgusted with myself just writing this.

    Just finished Le Carré’s Karla Trilogy, and have been making my way through DFW’s Consider the Lobster. Fatal Shore is still on my nightstand, and I have a stack of tech books next to me at my desk. Material is never the issue. Time is always the issue.
