What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors - Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein For fun, I bought this book at Powell's City of Books and read it in Portland. Most of the material is directly related to the TV series of the same name, and the comments from the "Mayor" were humorous (especially the Portlandia suggested reading list). The observational humor is still spot on for Portland, and overall this quick read was a nice review and support to the TV show between seasons. There is not much original material, but for fans it is an addition to the body of work about Portland, OR presented by Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen.
