books, books, books

I have a voracious appetite for the written word. I recently started the book Generosity: An Enhancement by Richard Powers. The setting is a mildly dystopian future Chicago. The protagonist is a community college creative nonfiction prof with a haunted past. The object of his fascination is his student, an Algerian refugee who just radiates happiness. So far, an engaging read.

Before that, I read Indigo Springs by A.M. Dellamonica. A partial amnesiac discovers a magical spring running through her fireplace, and harnesses its powers into lucky objects. Of course she can't control the magic she unleashed, especially as regards her best friend, who gets pretty crazy with the magic fluid. Told in partial flashbacks in an exciting, hyper, bewildering, narrative. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
