Deda Books: What Are You Reading? (164* d) RE: BS: What Are You Reading? 15 Jan 06

Just finished a wonderful historical novel by Iain Pears called "An instance of the fingerpost" (set in 17th century Oxford, and includes John Locke among its cast of characters, a sort of mystery involving various conspiracies, the religious biases in England after the death of Oliver Cromwell and the restoration of the monarchy) and have started a more contemporary fictionalized memoir called "The Color of Water" -- which starts off well. I'm also reading "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell, which I have to go find a copy of (I started reading someone else's & want to continue it). It's a fast read and full of interesting information and interpretations. I was also reading "the Way," about kabbalistic Judaism, but put it aside months ago and haven't gotten back to it. I think the kabbalah is very interesting, but this is a pretty superficial treatment of the subject.
