    Isn't she the reason why Jewish people celebrate Purim?

    I'm right now not reading a book, writing one though. I'm 15k into something I'm calling "Cold Coffee." It's taking the place of reading.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I just finished listening to the audiobook of Airborne. It's light fantasy and an amazing story. The audiobook was read by a full cast too, which was very entertaining.

    I read "Mouse Tails: Behind the Ears at Disneyland" last week. I was a bit skeptical going into it cuz on the flap it seemed to mildly suggest it was going to be one of these books that lambasted everything about Disneyland, but it was actually very entertaining. More of a collection of interesting anecdotes about the shenanegans of cast members and guests over the years. It's pretty old (1994 I think) but a fun light read.

    SWEET!
    And I'm jealous! I need a credit card so I can start preordering things. I'd probably spend thousands

    Yes. Finished it, and it was really good.

    You're writing? How exciting!

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I finished The City of To-morrow and its Planning by Le Corbusier. While he speaks in a very authoritative tone, his more tyrannical, megalomanic disposition was not as expressed as I had thought. I really do need to find a good biography in him, would anybody here happen to have any suggestions?

    I have just started The Plot to Seize the White House: The Shocking TRUE Story of the Conspiracy to Overthrow FDR by Jules Archer. It about a planned fascist coup d'état that I have only ever seen fleetingly mentioned in Great Depression/World War II documentaries and literature.
