books: the golden compass, a handmaid's tale, the neverending story, the maddaddam trilogy, do androids dream of electric sheep?. currently reading alexander chee's queen of the night and jane mayer's dark money (in the latter case "reading" is more like "trying not to let libertarian billionaires crush my spirit," #eattherich).
