The Long War by Baxter and Pratchett. Should finish it tomorrow. Then for August I'll probably return to Finnegans Wake and alternate it with another book.

Re: What are you reading?

I finished the previously mentioned The Untold History of Potato. Very good book, I never realised spuds could be so interesting.

After that I listened to The Epic of Gilgamesh, adapted by Sebastian Lockwood who also did the narration. The adaption was quite good but the narration left much to be desired.

I am now listening to Hundred in the Hand by Joseph M Marshall who also narrates it. It is a novel that tells the story of the Fetterman Massacre from the Indian point of view.

Re: What are you reading?

Just finished my second reading of Iain M. Banks' The Algebraist, still love it!

Plus I've been reading a lot of Gengoroh Tagame's comics over the past week or so. (those are NSFW - just in case you might google his name )

Re: What are you reading?

I am listening to The Final Confession of Mabel Stark, by Robert Hough, narrated by Betty Bobbitt. It is a very much fictional aurobiography, of the real-life Mabel Stark, who was the most famous female tiger trainer in history. Extremely funny so far.
