Yup.

On another side (read relates) note I hear Mattheisson's "Shadow Country" is getting made into a HBO movie/Cable TV Series staring Jeff Bridges and directed by David Milch (Deadwood).

On a lighter side almost anything by Patrick McManus is good, no great philosophic stuff, but just fun.
His line of "never smell a gift fish" is great.

Just finished House Of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski..

I would describe it as a pseudo academic/horror /love story/Literary labyrinth and a quite long tale of a house where the inside dimensions are slightly larger than its outside dimensions, and where there might or might not be something waiting for you in the basement that might or might not exist...

The most interesting book I have read in a while.

I drank coffee and read old books and waited for the year to end.
