Flying this weekend. Was thinking about rereading C. J. Cherryh's wonderful Merovingian nights: angel with the sword but decided that I didn't want to have to explain the significance of the title to semiliterate airport security agents. A couple of months back, a whitebread highschooler got detained for having a copy of Heyduke lives ! in his backpack just because there's a cartoony picture of a bomb on the paperback version's front cover.

So I'm traveling with Bill Bryson's Mother tongue: English and how it got that way.

Wish me luck.
