    I just finished "The Curious Incident with the Dog in the NIght Time" and thought it was fantastic. Now I'm rereading "The Catcher in the Rye" since I liked it in high school.

    I guess it's not "reading" in the traditional sense, but I am beginning to play the piano again. So... sight reading... is that okay?

    I purchased the music books for Wicked and Avenue Q. Those are some fun things to play. But [nerd alert], I need to take the books to Kinkos, get the spines cut off the books and get them rebound so they will lay flat on my piano [/nerd alert]

    Also... I'm re-discovering my love for Beethoven. I love that deaf man!

    Love both books! The Curious Incident book was wonderful. It really gave me an insight on the high functioning autistic person and how they process information!

    It was interesting to see the behoviors of an autistic person from the point of veiw of the person. I love how he would do things that would seem weird to us but, in his head, he had a perfect logic for doing it. I thought it was clever, touching, funny and very smart. If you like that one, you should read The Pleasure of My Company by Steve Martin. He is a brilliant writer of characters.

    I finally finished "Peter and the Star Catchers" the "prequel" story about the origin of Peter Pan and was very satisifed with the story. I hope they do a "sequel" to this one to fill in the years between this book, which ends with Peter becoming the Boy Who Could Fly and naming the island he is staying on after the boat he was on "Neverland" and having the Starcatchers use the Star Stuff to creat a pixie named Tinkerbell to look after him. We need to find out how the island got to another dimension and all the other stuff between then and when he met Wendy, John and Michael and had the adventure that we are all familer with.

    After that I am waiting for Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. Can't imagine who it is or what happens to Harry and friends in this newest book, but we are nearing the end of Harry's story and that is sad.

    I'm reading Eye of the World by Robert Jordan...I've been reading it on and off since last September.

    I managed to squeeze in The Fantastical Engineer, Magic Quizom, and 101 Things You Never Knew about Disneyland last month.

    And Wicked is waiting for me...

    Once July 16th comes...Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    I've been re-reading the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. They're working on the movie version(s) right now, so I gotta refresh my memory!

    I finished my Paul Theroux short stories and picked up more Augesten Burroughs. I need to find something more "permanent" before I get swept away with Disney review materials.
