Due to the vagaries of the waiting list at the library, I'm currently making my way through three books simultaneously: Elmore Leonard's "Pronto" (featuring Raylan Givens, the character at the center of the TV series "Justified) taking place both in Miami and Italy, Sarah Vowell's Hawaii history essay "Unfamiliar Fishes" and "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks."

Each time I pick one up, it takes me a moment to remember whether I'm in a poor rural/urban community, Maui or the Adriatic coast.

All three are great, by the way, if anyone's looking for a good read, although I don't think "Fishes" is Vowell's best work and the Raylan in "Pronto" is a bit more dim than he is on the TV series, which is a bit of an adjustment.
