I'm in three-book mode at the moment, reading three books at different times of the day, depending on my mood and place.
1. Ordinary Resurrections: Children in the Years of Hope by Jonathan Kozol (file under sociology/religion)
2. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman (poetry)
3. Here Beneath Low-Flying Planes by Merrill Feitell (short fiction)
Also, why has it taken me so long to listen to and love Death Cab for Cutie? I just got their new album, Plans. I especially like "Different Names for the Same Thing" and "Soul Meets Body," but it's all very good. How did you -- if you are a fan -- first discover this band?
