The Happy Isles of Oceania

Just finishing up this tome by the cranky Paul Theroux about his epic journey through the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Polynesia and beyond. It's a little slow and Theroux's a bit of a curmudgeon but it's a fascinating look at the islands and cultures of the peoples spread across a giant swath of the the southern hemisphere.

I am *such* a nonfiction reader - I can plow through a book of nonfiction a week whereas I plod through most fiction with great pain (with some exceptions, of course).
