          Set in the post Civil War south, a mixed race child is given up at birth, has a terrible childhood, and grows up to do a bad thing.  There are several characters whose stories intersect and influence his, and a few familiar names from Faulkner's other works. It's a classic, and a difficult read. I am an English grad student, and it has taken me several reads to fully appreciate it.

    I'm currently reading a mixture of fiction and nonfiction.  I usually always do.  I browse the stacks and pluck out what catches my eye, sometimes it's the cover or the title that intrigues me.

    Nonfiction I'm Reading:
    The Demon in the Freezer by Richarrd Preston
    It's about bioweapons and their manufacture, whether foreign countries are using a virus like smallpox or a bacteria like anthrax.  It also explores the history of smallpox eradication efforts in the late 70's.

    Fiction I'm Reading:
    White Cat by Holly Black
    Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis
    Captivate by Carrie Jones
    Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
