Decided to see what this Stieg Larsson stuff is like - so started on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I may even see the movies someday...
If you have Netflix streaming they have the subtitled versions of all three movies streaming. I just looked and they actually have two different versions, the original versions, and extended 3+ hour, 2 part versions. I watched the original versions of the first two and thought they were great, but never got around to watching the last one. I tried to read the first book, and got bored with it after about 150 pages.

While simultaneously trying to finish Doctor Who: Matrix and Ann Petry's The Street, I'm trying to finish James Baldwin's Fire Next Time.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished my first trek book Dark Mirror and loved all the stuff with Picard on the other Enterprise but I thought the beginning was a little heavy on the technobabble. I'm now in the middle of Q in law and its good so far, I really liked the running depression gag in the beginning.

I finished Mass Effect: Retribution a few days ago. I'm now about half way through Star Trek: That Which Divides.

Nonfiction wise: Catching Fire: How Cooking Made us Human, by Robert Wrangham; Suburban Nation: the Rise of Sprawl and Decline of the American Dream, by Andres Duany and others.

Fiction-wise: I just received the trade paperback version of Worlds of DS9: The Dominion and Ferenginar in the mail. I expected the mass media paperback, but hey!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've just finished Old Habits by Keven Bell. Not bad.

Next up I've got The Slab by Karen Traviss to be followed by either the Safehold novels by David Weber or possibly Dune.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Mockingjay (final book of the Hunger Games) and was fairly satisfied with it. The ending suited the story though it felt a little slow paced at parts.

Now I'm reading Star Trek Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game by David Mack. I'm about 50 pages in and so far it's a great read

Read Ice Hunt and Deep Fathom by James Rollins. About halfway through Forgotten History, which I picked up at the San Francisco Airport.

(Thank you, cross-country flights.)
