books I've (re)read in recent months

Murder on the Orient Express (Agatha Christie)
3001: The Final Odyssey (Arthur C. Clarke)
Contact (Carl Sagan)
The Godfather (Mario Puzo)
Bonfire of the Vanities (Tom Wolfe)
Jurassic Park (Michael Crichton)
Bible Stories for Adults (James Morrow)

I'm currently reading Scott McCloud's Reinventing Comics. I thought his first work, Understanding Comics, was excellent, and was easily one of the most lucid discussions not only of comics, but also of art in general, and how it relates to things like culture, history, and human perception.
