Stop Making Sense

I read anything that's nailed down, or even just moving slowly. Cereal boxes, candy wrappers, all genres, etc., and I don't always have much time for arbitrary distinctions like literary fiction vs. genre fiction.

The First Meta Airplane Book?

Heat Wave - Richard Castle

If you're a fan of the TV show Castle, this is a ton of fun. This is the first of the books "written" by the titular character on the show, who's played by Nathan Filion. The story follows Detective Nikki Heat (Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic on the show) as she investigates a murder, "assisted" by reporter Jamison Rook (the pseudonym for Richard Castle) and her colleagues. Follow all that? This is about as meta as it can get.

Note: You won't be reading it for the in-depth characterizations or complex plots. You'll be reading it because you like the humor of the show and the relationship between the leads. So the next time you're on an airplane, or on a beach, or need something light to read, pick this one up.
