Three down, 18 to go. . .

I finished The Alienist--good read, somewhat disappointing ending. Which means that I've read three books so far this year. In a broad sense, that's not bad, but it's quite a bit off my general pace of 20 books a year. (The new Harry Potter should help me catch up a bit, though.)

I am excited about the next title in my queue: an advance copy of the new Rick Moody novel! (It's so nice that Schuler Books still loves me.)

Rick Moody! Rick Moody! As always, I'll let you know how it goes, but I'm damn well going to finish it before the hardcover comes out in September.

Hey, what's the new Moody book called? And when's it coming out for the rest of us, whom Schuler love no more?

The Diviners, and it should be on your local bookshelf or shipping from Amazon sometime in September.

You know, the cover kind of freaked me out at first, but it's kind of growing on me. Very over-the-top, yet tongue-in-cheek, if that's possible.
