Making up for lost time

Jeannette Walls’ nicely written memoir The Glass Castle is hanging out in my laptop case. I’ve enjoyed the first few chapters and hope to finish it this week and maybe talk to her about the book for Identity Theory.

I also picked up as a birthday present to myself Reb Anderson’s Being Upright: Zen Meditation and the Bodhisattva Precepts. Hopefully I’ll get to start that soon.

As always I’m reading up on poker. For now, that reading includes Ace on the River by Barry Greenstein (one of the most successful and charitable high stakes players) and Super System 2, and all year long I’ve been digging my way through a bunch of Cardoza’s “Championship” books (like Championship Omaha, Championship No-Limit & Pot-Limit Hold’em, Championship Stud, etc.) that are amazingly helpful and have allowed me to continue my existence as a semi-professional player.

One book that’s tempting me lately is Lee Martin’s The Bright Forever. Maybe it’s just the cover or the title or something. And I got a few books from PublicAffairs recently, like Geoffrey Nunberg’s Going Nucular, which is now out in paperback.

It kind of annoys me that I still haven’t finished Susan Orlean’s My Kind of Place because she’s a totally kickass writer.

Anyway, I’m hoping to fly to Florida in a couple days, which should give me a chance to catch up on my reading and maybe get some reviews and interviews going for the site.
