I'm, ehum, I'm still reading "The Pillars of the Earth". Haven't read a lot for a while, okay?

Re: What are you reading?

I finished beta-reading Dwarves In Space for my friend. Great stuff. The Space Opera future of a High Fantasy universe. As usual, a strong story in a cheeky style reminiscent of Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams.

Now I'll get back to Montaro Caine, which I had barely started.

Montaro Caine is on my Amazon wishlist. Just not in the mood for it yet.

Haven't done much reading at all lately, actually, being the kind of sick where I can't keep my eyes open much longer than work requires. Feeling better now, and apparently managed to stack up about $70 in Amazon gift cards over the past few months, so I've gotten the second Eugenics Wars. Made it through about three pages (on Kindle) before I fell asleep last night. Not the book's fault, I'm just still exhausted I guess. Hopefully tonight I can at least finish a chapter. I miss reading.

Just finished Margeret Coel's newest, Killing Custer, and started Orange is the New Black, the memoir that the Netflix show is based on.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm getting ready to start Second Shift - Order (Part 7 of the Silo Series) (Volume 7) by Hugh Howey. I've read the Wool/Silo series so far and have the rest of the books.

Re: What are you reading?

since I last posted I have finished Time Gifts by Zoran Zivkovic (good, but not as good as The Library) as well as The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes and The Reurn of Sherlock Holmes.

My iPad read is still Death by Black Hole by Neil Degrasse Tyson but I am only 14% through it.

A far as my dead tree read goes - I have just started Chief Left Hand, a biography by Margaret Coel.

Re: What are you reading?

I needed something light for a voyage, which included a train ride and two flights, so I started reading James P. Hogan's Inherit the Stars.

Quite a nice read: well paced and with lots of interresting twists that keeps me reading -even if I, as an experienced SciFi-reader, have guessed the most probable solution to something the future scientists in the book haven't even mentioned yet (wonder if I'm right ;p

Of course I guessed right about 'the big finale' of Inherit the Stars

Now starting on Alastair Renoylds' Revelation Space.

I found a new author I really like, Blake Crouch. Already read "Pines" , "Abandon" and now reading "Eerie". Basically mystery and suspense

Killer Show, an account of The Station nightclub fire, published just in time for the disaster's 10th anniversary. My cousin and her husband knew people who were hurt/killed in the fire. They don't talk about it. The book is hard to get through.
