Well, I sure am glad that I LOVED American Gods, and am just about to start reading Neverwhere.

Speaking of Fanfiction, imo one of the best ones out there for Persona 4 is Sympathy Crime. Sometimes I feel if the author changed the names and removed the whole going in the tv world thing and replaced with some other kind of psuedo-ghost-shadow-ego matter she could publish it as a succesful novella.

"The Ascent of Money." Finance has a more bizarre history than I thought it would.

actually, you should read good omens first, that will slide you neatly from pratchett into gaiman.

neverwhere was my first all-gaiman book, and it terrified me, so i've been a bit slow at approaching the rest of his stuff, but i'm kind of a wimp. i liked american gods better, and now i need to find anansi boys, i think.

Good Omens was a pretty great book... I liked it when it came out with the two covers, one white and the other black.

I have some pretty important work to get done, but I'm probably just going to spend the rest of the day reading. Not the best of decisions, but I don't really care right now

probably fanfiction, again, since I haven't yet gotten my hands on any of the actual books I'm planning on reading, most of the fiction on my bookshelf I don't care to reread and should probably get rid of, and most of the the nonfiction is at least tangentially related to the things I should be doing

hope I find a good one

The Signal and the Noise

It has kept my attention so far. I'm learning so much about baseball!

I liked this one a lot (some chapters more than others). Strangely, I found the chapters that were most about economics to be the least interesting and insightful.
