Ten random things: September 24

Ten books I own:

  1. Boy in the Water by Stephen Dobyns
  2. The Pretty Good Jim's Journal Treasury: The Definitive Collection of Every Published Cartoon by Scott Dikkers
  3. Tricky Business by Dave Barry
  4. Q Clearance by Peter Benchley
  5. Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions by Christian Lander
  6. The Last Detective by Robert Crais
  7. Katharine Graham's Washington by Katharine Graham
  8. Superman: Fin de siècle par Stuart Immonen
  9. Back When We Were Grownups by Anne Tyler
  10. An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917 - 1963 by Robert Dallek

It's not really the sort of thing you sit down and read straight through, and I'm not certain I ever came back to it the last time I set it aside. And I know I haven't read Superman: Fin de siècle, because I can't read French. Well, I can, I just can't understand what I'm reading. I have read the original English version, for what that's worth.
