"The Painted Drum" a novel by Louise Erdrich (I collect the writings of Louise Erdrich.)
"Heyday" a novel by Kurt Andersen (I have in our library another novel by Kurt Andersen titled, "Turn Of The Century".)
While at the book nook I read a book I checked out of the library system titled, "B & Me: A True Story of Literary Arousal" by J. C. Hallman.

I have been up since 5:30 AM this morning so right now I feel like crap. I am going to go lay down in the dark now. The rain kept me awake all night. I am a very light sleeper.
" And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof." Romans 13:11-14
