Voyager The Eternal Tide. Well, haven't really started reading it properly yet, just the first page or so.

I'm about half way through The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. After that, one of my mates gave me The Sunset Warrior by Eric Van Lustbader to try.

Any good? I'm going through a biography phase at the moment and he's someone I'd be interested in reading about.

I finished The Girl Who Played With Fire and have now started The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larrson.
I'm about 2/3 of the way through The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is much slower than I expected, but I'm enjoying it.

Keep reading. It's excellent. The Girl Who Played With Fire is incredible too- you almost can't put it down and when you finally do, you want to go read Hornet's Nest immediately!

I am enjoying this book, although there are people out there who do not like Munn's books. Like everything, I guess you have to take things with a grain of salt.

Another book on the history and the architecture of the United States Capitol Building in Washington. I love reading about the Capitol...it's my favorite public building and structure in the entire country.

Re: What are you reading?

Uh oh. How did you end up with those?

I started reading Der Turm by Uwe Tellkamp. The two-part movie on TV last week piqued my interest and I wanted to read the full story. It's not that easy to read but quite captivating.
