Re: What are you reading?

Currently about 320 pages into The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson, and also about a quarter of the way through my co-worker Rasheed Newson's first e-book, Bring a Shovel and a Gun.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm reading Crossroads of Freedom: Antietam by James M. McPherson. It's a concise history of the events leading up to, during and around the pivotal American Civil War battle. This includes the disasters of the Seven Days Battles, Second Bull Run/Manassas as well as the possibility of British and French intervention in the war.

Whenever I get a spare moment I am also working my way through A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin.

Re: What are you reading?

Dan Balz's The Battle for America 2008, his best-selling tome on the last presidential election. I'd read it before but wanted to leaf through it again in advance of the upcoming election five weeks from now.

So I gave up on Kraken halfway through. No, less than halfway. I'm curious... has anyone else read it, and what did you think of it?

Re: What are you reading?

Vis-à-vis my latest purchases I now have to decide on which book to begin reading as they might have The Hydrogen Sonata at the store any day now and I'm expecting a prolonged geekgasm from that book
