    currently reading "Orchestration" by Cecil Forsyth. Picked this over other books on orchestration to learn from mainly because of the era it was written. I wanted a view balanced nearer to late-romantic orchestration than more modern stuff, but not being much of a Berlioz or Rimsky Korsakov fan I didnt fancy getting either of their books.

    Default Fraud in Accounts Payable

    I have to read and study to keep my CPA license which is why I am reading Fraud in Accounts Payable How to Prevent It by Mary S. Schaeffer.

    It is hard to put down. An easy read like a detective novel and she writes with humor too. Not boring like something written by an accountant.

    I always love to read about cases where people steal money and how they did it.

    I am also reading through again Opera 101 by Fred Plotkin.
    No, it's a Bb. It looks wrong and it sounds wrong, but it's right - Vaughan Williams.

    Have you seen the movie "catch me if you can"?

    Interesting that it's not "how they got caught," but "how they did it."

    I'm currently reading Mozart: A Biography, by Piero Melograni.

    Yes, I have. I've heard that movie takes some liberties with Mozart's life, and I'm hoping this book will identify and dispel any and all myths, so I can sift the fact from the fiction.

    Already, though, the book has verified two things from the movie: that Mozart was a very fun-loving guy, and that he liked to reverse words.

    Ya, both of those were true, I can go ahead and tell you there was no real proof that Mozart had anything to do with Salariri and that they really we not that involved, Mozart did however have other rivals. And also he had many kids, not just one.

    When I have the time (normally when travelling) I pick up "Conversations with the Dalai Lama". I'm reading it in Swedish, where the title is "Samtal med Dalai Lama" - some amazing discussions in that book!
