In the past month, I've read Quicksand and Passing by Nella Larsen

The Messenger by Marcus Zuzak, and Mrs. Kimball by Jennifer Haigh.

I'm currently 3/4 o the way through Dreaming Southern by Linda Bruckheimer.

I've got a pile of books I've decided that I MUST get through before the end of summer.

I'm reading Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates by Tom Robbins. I'm not making much headway... I bought it before the school year was over, so I was all excited to finally be able to make some progress on it when finals were over, but so far I've read about...3 pages. D'oh! It's not that it's boring; I'm just lazy.

I finished Ronnie ... the autobiography of Ron Wood.

Really good read, he was refreshingly honest, about everything. Extramarital affairs and all, and how so many of the same rockers and chicks back then seemed to all screw each other eventually.

Funny! Photos of all his kids, the moms.

I'd recommend it. :D

Thanks for the recommendation. After this: http://forums.ledzeppelin.com//index.php?showtopic=6997 I wonder if he will put out a revised edition.

Yep, something like one degree of separation between them.

i did not care for this book. too much crack smoking and not enough music for me. the digging for crack pieces on the carpet chapter ruined it for me. i got it for christmas, read it and took it back for 'no country for old men' by cormack mccarthy...much better.

i'm currently re-reading 'psychotic reactions and carburetor dung' by lester bangs. more than awesome record and concert reviews from the '70's, excellent essays on the state of rock and roll and punk and the musicians that inhabit it.

highly recommend...

Let's see...since I last posted, I've finished Dreaming Southern by Linda Brukheimer; read The Giver by Lois Lowry (I'm teaching it in September); Shadow Baby by Alison McGhee; and I'm currently reading another book: Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman.

I'm wondering where the Barnes and Noble is in this town...I think I'm gonna run out of reading material soon! :o

Well, now I finished the autobiograhy of Iggy Pop.

Yes, Ronnie was wacked in that book, but hey, I didn't buy it. :lol:

I was more interested in the gossip anyway. I'm always amazed at what the wives of rockers put up (and sometimes JOIN in on) with, and how they do it.

Back to Iggy...there was an interesting little tid-bit about Page. Iggy had flown one of the LA groupies to join him at a new show in NYC, this was 73. Well he never showed to pick her up. So she was stranded at the airport, her name Corel, Sable's sister. So happened Jimmy Page was getting ready to fly back home, at the same airport, and recognized her from LA. So she told him of her plight, and Jimmy then talks her into going with him, instead. So, she did, and flew off to London with Jimmy and stayed with him about a month. :o:D I have the pick of them in the book, I'll try to scan it.

edited for a mistake a sweet friend pointed out to me.:;):

Someone asked I scan the pic of Corel (?) at Rodneys.

Sorry it's small, but you can enlarge it to see it better.

:)

Such is NOT the case in the pic of a naked Iggy. Nothing SMALL about it! :o:shifty:

Whoa! He may even have Robert beat in that area.......... :blink:
