Book: Cloud Atlas
Currently reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Just into the second chapter and its an intriguing book.. its got me in the first 20 pages. The text is very rich and characters very well drawn out. Actually the reason I chose it was not just b/c its been shortlisted for the Booker, but also b/c of the great cover art... I'm finding lately that like a good wine, you can sometimes intuitively pick a book by the cover... so to get all cheesy, yes, you can sometimes pick a book by its cover!
Next book may be another Chuck, but I've had to space those out lest I read them all at once.
