What I'm reading, What I'm watching

Having just finished watching Tupac: Resurrection and Super Size Me, I have the following DVDs on the horizon from Netflix Fahrenhype 9/11, Girl With a Pearl Earring, Star Wars, Flight of the Navigator, Singin' in the Rain, and In America. Not to mention i'm currently watching the miniseries Children of Dune.

Plus some good tv in Lost and Joan of Arcadia. Both of these shows are absolutely excellent, but in very different ways.

I just finished reading Shutter Island, by Dennis Lehane. Excellent book. Lehane wrote the novel Mystic River, which was made into the movie. There is a brief intro to Shutter Island on Lehane's website, and it is really worth reading. There is a bit of a mystery in Teddy's investigation of the missing mental patient/prisoner, and it only gets more compelling as the story progresses.

Here's what i'm looking forward to reading whenever these books are released and they come through at the library:
The Plot Against America, by Philip Roth
Broker, by John Grisham
State of Fear, by Michael Crichton
plus a whole slew of fantasy novels coming out in the next year including new offerings from Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Raymond Feist, Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Greg Keyes, Christopher Paolini, and hopefully George R R Martin (though let's not hold our breath on this one).
