On my bedside table

Peace Kills: America's Fun New ImperialismJust finished reading Peace Kills: America’s Fun New Imperialism, by P.J. O’Rourke. It was pretty good, a quick read. If you like P.J., it’s more of the same.

I also (finally) knocked off David SedarisDress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, which was absolutely hysterical. Seriously funny stuff. Next up: How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter. I’m also almost done with Alistair Horne’s fabulous Seven Ages of Paris, (which I actually picked up at The Louvre). Oh, and my dad just sent me Magical Thinking: True Stories by Augusten Burroughs. I’m only about 100 pages into it, but it’s great so far.
