^^ Don't worry. Ulysses comes back to you.

And I'm back to Fate Of Worlds, after being too busy to read for a few days. I suspect I should have read other "Fleet of Worlds" books first.

Curent bedside read: Frankenstein. I'll host a discussion with a few medics and non-medics about the ethical and medical aspects of this story and though I've seen several movie adaptations I never quite got around to reading the book. So it's about time I started my preparations.

I read maybe a third (at most) of Lisa Scottoline's Keep Quiet and gave up. Her old suspense novels were really good, but this was... well, I thought I was reading a Jodi Picoult book.

The Android's Dream by Jon Scalzi.
I counted last night and I have 11 books that I have started and not finished. My goal is to get them all finished by the end of the summer.

Heehee, great minds...

current read: Sacred Trust, a Highlander (series) fanfiction. Too many too detailed torture and sex scenes imho but some really great funny moments and the characters are very plausible. With a few expurgations it'd propably be a bestseller and re-written to PG13 it might have made a pretty good episode in the series.

Re: What are you reading?

Have you ever tried the original unabridges version of Robinson Crusoe? Sentences that stretch over more than 1 page, extremely longwinded phrases. A beautiful language, but requires more concentration to read than your average human can muster. I surrendered after about 100 pages.

Re: What are you reading?

I am listening to the novel Hamlet: Prince of Denmarkby A.J. Hartley and David Hewson, narrated by Richard Armitage.

My Kindle read is The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle.
