I just finished The Never-Ending Sacrifice By Una McCormack. I loved it, I read A Stitch in Time By Andrew J. Robinson just before that. So now, I'm waiting for Day of the Vipers to come in the mail to read.

It doesn't. If I remember it correctly, it was my least favorite book in the whole series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Ended up taking a break from Serious Stuff (TM), and am about two-thirds of the way through Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.

Will be resuming the Karla trilogy with The Honourable Schoolboy after that, then picking up The History of White People before concluding the Karla trilogy with Smiley's People.

After that, the plan is to finish American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Not sure after that -- maybe Pedagogy of the Oppressed?

Nothing. I'm taking a break for a few days while I wait for Greg Cox's The Weight of Worlds to arrive.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm slogging thru Silent Weapons and having a hard time getting into it. It's just not grabbing my attention. I took a break & re-read Pollyanna the other day as an attempt at a palate cleanser. I'm wondering if I'm just kind of burning out on Trek lit.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

After not having read a Trek book in years, I just read the Star Trek Destiny trilogy and enjoyed the hell out of it. I'm now reading its follow up A Singular Destiny.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished the Steig Larsson 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' trilogy.

Overall impressions were good - the second book was a little weak, but overall enjoyable if not brilliant. Rather too much reliance on luck and coincidence in places though.

Lets hope the fourth novel is finished and released at some point - It's about Salanders sister and she's the only real loose end from the trilogy...
