Another one from the 'Noir' series, in anticipation of a trip to NYC soon.

I just finished the first Travis McGee book (The Deep Blue Goodbye) by John D Macdonald.
Part of a threefer on Kindle.

Tacitus "The Histories" (Penguin Classics) - 69 was quite a year.

Wow! He looks and appears to behave like a modern-day Vitellius (see Tacitus above).

I began reading this a few years ago, but stopped and started over a couple times. I'm now up to page 542 of 1074 (hardbound edition). I refuse to watch the TV series.

You're wrong there. The Simpsons Movie is a movie not a tv series.

LOL!
I started on a Japanese literary classic about a samurai fighter. I forgot the name of the book and the author but currently I'm on page 220 of 1286.

Shogun is not Japanese and not realistic, at least according to the preface in the book I'm reading now. It's...
(looks it up)
Musashi by Ejii Yoshikawa.

"Furious Cool" by David Henry and Joe Henry, a biography of Richard Pryor. It's strange how some people can be so absolutely brilliant in their work but make such a complete mess of the rest of their life.

For my birthday I had Zappa The Hard Way, Norwegian Wood and another Murakami novel of which the name's escaped me now. Finished ZTHW today (not too sure about the author's inclusion of personal stories and observations and jokes, probably because he didn't make me laugh, aside from that it's a good study, pity Wackerman didn't talk to the author) and Norwegian Wood two days ago.

Just finished reading Ace Frehley's "No Regrets".

A friend of mine sent me "Humans Of New York" by Brandon Stanton. That's my next read.
