More fruits of procrastination.

29. Killing Time - Caleb Carr. The Alienist was so good and The Angel of Darkness was very readable. So what happened with this one? This is the second time I read it, believing that it couldn't possibly be as bad as I remembered. It was. Carr should stick with the 19th century and stay away from the sci-fi.

30. All Families are Psychotic - Douglas Coupland. More like I remember Coupland being but the ending was rushed and didn't fit.

31. Murder at the Kennedy Center - Margaret Truman. The month's bus book. Good twinkie book.

32. A Good Yarn - Debbie Macomber. A part cleaning-house gift from Eva. The very definition of a twinkie book AND I finished it in one short afternoon. Perfect for stressful times. Does anyone local want it? (I'm in major money-hoarding mode right now, so no shipping fees for me. :-( )

33. Shampoo Planet - Douglas Coupland. A re-read, but it renewed my faith in Coupland. Very funny and depressing at the same time.

Don't worry, Kiki and Steve's Coupland collection has to come to an end sometime, right?

Shampoo Planet is my favorite....just the idea of the globe farm!!! And now, when I see the new malls being built every day in every part of the valley, I just hope to myself that I am still around when they are ruins for skateboarders to enjoy.
