66. Al jaffee's Mad Life
Has a firm grip on my attentlon now.

Also reading The Talented Miss Highsmith, the latest bio of Patricia.
The Life and Death of Democracy, which I'll probably never finish, it's so long (but forcefully written)
Black Swan Green, a brilliant coming of age novel of Thatcher-era England by David Mitchell
and Virtual You, a warning against too much rime on the computer by a Stanford psychiatrist.
