Far from high-brow, but I just finished Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open.

One of the best athlete autobiographies I've read, and I've read a lot.

Finished Fear & Loathing in America by Hunter Thompson the other day, it certainly wasnt disappointing but not nearly as entertaining as Hells Angels & F&L in Vegas, probably due to the fact that its all correspondence between himself & others, not him going for the brass ring of surrealist wordsmithery in every sentence like in his books.

The best stuff is prolly when he replies to fans who've sent him letters, a good read if only to understand the guys brilliant madness better.

Reading Under the Harrow by Mark Dunn who wrote Ella Minnow Pea.

Weird book, but I'm enjoying it.
Quote:
What if Charles Dickens had written a contemporary thriller? In Under the Harrow, a group of Victorians live a semi-idyllic and unwitting, anachronistic existence, aided only by minimal trade-related contact with the supposedly plague-ridden Outland. They are products of an experiment that had become a lucrative, voyeuristic peep-box for millionaires and their billionaire descendants. But the experiment has run its course, and Dingley Dell must be totally expungedľand with it, all trace of the thousands of men, women, and children who live there. A few Dinglians learn the secret of both their manipulated past and their doomed future, and it is this motley group of Dickensian innocents who must race the clock to save their fellow countrymen and themselves from mass annihilation. Under the Harrow showcases the kind of dazzling wordplay and narrative richness that have made Mark Dunn's novels and plays both commercially successful and critically acclaimed.

Just ordered this, and I am super anxious to get started on it!

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-...harry%2bpotter



Synopsis

This volume considers the depiction of law and legal institutions in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels. It contains more than twenty chapters by legal academics from the U.S. and abroad. The chapters are organized in five sections: Legal Traditions and Institutions, Crimes and Punishments, Harry Potter and Identity, the Wizard Economy, and Harry Potter as an Archetype. Some chapters analyze the way law and legal institutions are portrayed, and what these portrayals teach us about concepts such as morality, justice, and difference. Other chapters use examples from the narratives to illustrate or analyze legal issues, such as human rights, actual innocence, and legal pedagogy. The volume is suitable for undergraduate or law school courses, and will be of interest to those Harry Potter fans who also have an interest in law and the legal profession.

I wouldn't call them high brow, but I recently listened to the audiobook versions of Larry Correia's Monster Hunter books (Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta). Said author comes across as a right wing nutjob (especially if you read stuff on his website...) although not necessarily in the same ballpark as, say, Orson Scott Card, but his books are hella entertaining. I basically listened to both of them straight through in a few days (these are 20+ hour audiobooks).

Kind of an inspirational story from the standpoint of somebody who's at least thought about being an author (which is probably all I'll ever do...): Correia self-published Monster Hunter International in 2008 before being picked-up by Baen Books.

Is that a new one? Dresden files are good light reading.

Thanks Keg. I tend to read more than one book at a time and like for one of them to be entertaining, mindless reading. Dresden Files fit the bill well. So did Butcher's Codex Alera.
