winter reading

Kaplan Schweser Auditing and Attestation Study Guide- I really like Kaplan CPA’s study program, especially since I passed FAR! Right now I’m getting killed on Internal Control multiple choice questions but as long as I learn from those mistakes, I’ll be fine.

Trophy House, Anne Bernays- Domestic turn-off-your-brain reading. The main character is a middle aged children’s illustrator who has an affair with her editor. This was like eavesdropping on a conversation between a couple middle aged WASP biddies.

Mirror Dance, Lois Mcmaster Bujold- Wow. This was one of those books that you never want to end. The characterization is amazing, especially Mark’s. I think Bujold captured perfectly what someone in his position must go through. I really loved watching Mark forge his own separate identity from Miles. This is really Mark’s book, although Cordelia nearly steals the spotlight.

Cordelia’s Honor, Lois Mcmaster Bujold- Speaking of Cordelia, I’m almost ready to set up an altar to her in my room. What a very extraordinary person. I haven’t quite finished reading Barrayar yet. After reading Shards of Honor I started thinking of uterine replicators as an excellent alternative to pregnancy, then remind myself that there are none in the real world. And Sergeant Bothari’s name and image have been burned into my brain. I wonder how much research Bujold did into military and Russian culture to make her books so convincing. She makes everything intriguing.
