Read another southern-type book, which was Backseat Saints, by Joshilyn Jackson. This was pretty good, though a little bit violent, considering the fact that it chronicles domestic abuse in the main character's life. Although it was sort of a heavy read, I was glad to have experienced this book and this memorable character, who does get saved at the end. I might read another book by the same author.
I also read Pattern Recognition, by William Gibson. Although it was probably just a tad longer than it needed to be, I really enjoyed the conclusion that was entertaining and well, thought provoking. It does make you question modernity as it currently has been manifesting, though in a somewhat heartwarming way by the end of the novel. I would say that I liked the book.
So, back to the housecleaning. For now. Who actually reads this ridiculous blog anyway?
