I honestly don't read a lot at home. I save that for the hours I spend on the subway every day.
My commute is now very short, but I make up for it with airplane reading of course.

Which is why it particularly enrages me when people play loud music on the subway.

Ha. I’m with a huge Cure fan now. I still don’t get it.
Tuesday she texted me all this stuff Bob Smith has said recently.
Who CARES what Bob Smith has said recently?

Scarlatti: Treize Sonates (Anne Queffélec) (I have undervalued this pianist)
Galuppi: Il Mundo alla Reversa (Pennichi/Dominguez/Fracassini/Serafini/Zanasi/Bettini/Livermore//Fasolis/I Barocchisti/Coro della Radio Svizzera) (it's good this is available, but I can't imagine ever reaching for it in preference to, say, The Marriage of Figaro) (which I actually think stole from it, BTW)
Ex Hex: It's Real (OMG I love this)
Mahmoud Turkmani: Nuqta (very very good)
Buffalo Springfield: Buffalo Springfield Again (stereo) (a classic album from back when white rock was not only viable, but even kind of exciting)
