What I’m reading right now

I read loads of things in spurts, mostly technically minded jibber-jabber in reference books regarding web usability, CSS, and other geeky stuff. Sometimes I indulge in books about grammar and language, though, to read my writing you must take into account that I don’t absorb nearly as much as I read… 🙂
For no good reason, this proficient, yet amateur-league ‘reader’ has decided to post the books she’s perusing and page turning currently. You’ll get some insight about me from my choices, but remember that I’m more than what I read‚Äì I’m also tattoos and a few punk rock cds. 😉

Nearly finished: Just finished:
The Wasp Factory, by Iain Banks

We’ve only just begun:
Mind Hacks, by Tom Stafford & Matt Webb, (O’Reilly publication)

You’d think I’d be done by now:
On Writing, by Stephen King

Indulgent dippings:
The New Well-Tempered Sentence, by Karen Elizabeth Gordon

Informative but not particularly pleasurable:
Writing Copy for the Web, by Nigel Temple
Stylin’ with CSS, by Charles Wyke-Smith

That’s most of it for now. I’ve always got more than half a dozen bookmarked and placed in optimal reading spots in the flat, but that’s the little bunch that comes to mind right now.

  1. You sound a lot like me, I’ll read three or four books at a time, some finishing before others. I started on The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini back in April and never got around to finishing it. It’s still on my nightstand waiting for me to turn it’s pages again. Then again, I’m reading a Java 5 book, C++ book, and when I feel like it, and another great book by Greg Iles. Oh well, life goes on.

    Try reading outside, with the wind blowing … it really helps you focus, gets you away from the distractions of the home.

  2. Jeez, I’m reading Criminal Law” Smith & Hogan, Criminal Law Review, Land Law – definitive text and case law and Equity & Trusts by someone I can’t be bothered to spell as it’s a long polish sounding name.

    Never guess I’m back at Uni eh?

    Oh, and, jen, this will make you smile – I couldn’t remember your URL so did a Google on ‘RegularJen’ – the answer came back ‘Do you mean regulation?’ Er…. no!

  3. Sounds like thrilling reading Paul! 😉

    Glad you were successful with my Google search results. I keep an eye on them and it seems that I’m doing something right, but I’d love to really dig into how to better my presence with proper SEO stuff. But, that would require more books I think and right now, I just need to finish what I’ve got started! lol!
