today's book of the day is Diamond, by matthew hart. i've only just started it, but it really is riveting from the first page. and who doesn't like thinking about the cost and preparation and delicate auction of giant glittering diamonds? starting in the sluggish diamond rivers of brazil and arriving at harry winston in new york, with lots of exciting things in between. (and yes, a geology lession - which does so much more than college geology did on diamonds! diamond dust in every meteorite, who fucking KNEW.) good stuff.
