Voracious Like the Wolf

Yes, Planet Earth, there is a Duran Duran Book Club, courtesy of singer Simon Le Bon. Check out Simon's Library of past reads. And Simon not only reads, he writes - recommendations and reviews of the books he's read are available, and fans can contribute reader opinions and vote for their favorites among the selected titles.

I heard about Simons Reader via Simanoff, who's much better about keeping his blog focused than I am. Anyway, this news sort of makes up for my deciding to skip Duran Duran's show next month, because I'm not up to springing $50-60 to see the guys, even though it's probably my last best chance before even Nick Rhodes loses his looks.

Well, I have to say that he has pretty good hipster tastes, too. His two current picks (Ghostwritten and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle are both pretty damn brilliant IMO.

My designated fourth grade favorite was John Taylor. Still is my favorite Duran, hands down.
