When you read multiple books at the same time, it isn't unusual to finish a couple of books within a short time of one another. This happened to me yesterday.

First, I finished reading a travel book by Simon Winchester called Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles. The author hiked for a few months from the southern tip of South Korea to the DMZ in the years before the fall of the Soviet Union; his book deals with his observations of the land and the people. Even though it's years out of date, I still found it a fascinating read.

Next was Memos from Purgatory, Harlan Ellison's work about juvenile delinquents. He had attempted to infiltrate a gang...must have been in the 50s...and the book deals with his experiences with this and how he came back into contact with one of the members, years later. Not bad; not classic.
