Really enjoying this book. It's a biography of a Chinese woman (concubine) in Vancouver during the Depression. The story also involves Nanaimo. I'm apparently a sucker for social history, biographies, fiction books pertaining to places I've lived in.

Dracula - Bram Stoker.  I read this twice in my early teens and decided to try it again....and  I still think it's under-rated.

Roubini, N. & Mihm, S. 2010. Crisis economics: a crash course in the future of finance.

I have no idea why I typed that out in APA. Habit.
It's a book by "Dr. DOOM"

It's a book by this guy:

I should be done with it by tomorrow. If so, my next book is
Neil Smith's New Urban Frontier: Gentrification and the Revanchist City
After that, who knows.
I need to start writing soon. Paper(s) are due in a month and I need to read books.

Finishing up a gluttony of library books.
Urban America Reconsidered: Alternatives for Governance and Policy by David L. Imbroscio
La Calle: Spatial Conflicts and Urban Renewal in a Southwest City by Lydia R. Otero.

I've been looking forward to the latter for weeks. It's an urban ethnography of Tuscon. I kind of got into reading ethnographies this year, even if some of them come to the wrong conclusion, because they are light reading rather enjoyable. Villa Victoria by Mario Louis Small is really good; although the conclusion he has is sort of odd, and the neighbourhood he documented is now a gentrified gay-district in Boston. Sociologists are funny.

I like the idea of them but, yes, they ARE funny. Anthropolgists are MUCH better.

Claude Levi-Strauss is on my reading list for the summer. I hope to get to him.

It depends on the sociologist.
