    I read 10 books in August and not a one of them was memorable enough to warrant a mention, unfortunately!

    Lots of academic journals, but a few books (also academic) that might bear a mention:

    The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life by Erving Goffman
    Social Mindscapes by Eviatar Zerubavel
    Shared Fantasy (again) by Gary Alan Fine

    Still in the middle of Lolita, too... :(

    I'd probably give that book a 3.5 as well. I liked the way she dealt with controversial issues like racism and homophobia, but I felt the plot was too similar to the other stories in this series.
