    I am planning to listen to it on Christmas Eve.

    I am now listening to The Chessmen by Peter May, narrated by Peter Forbes. it is the third book in the Lewis trilogy. A natural bog burst drains a loch on Lewis Isle revealing a largely undamaged plane that disappeared 17 years before.

    No Golem, eh? We'll talk after you finish the book. Unless you'd like to share your little theory now... ;)

    Finished The Janson Option by Paul Garrison, a series Robert Ludlum had started. Liked it quite a bit. Going to have to go back and read the earlier ones now.

    Heh. I'll put it in spoiler code, in case anyone else plans on reading (it's a good book so far):

    He made a point of mentioning strange little figurines that his mother made, very different from her usual arts and crafts. Then his one-night stand complained about being bitten on the ankle by a cockroach. I was thinking that maybe the figurines were little tiny Golems. But now he's encountered and photographed a strange bug at the cemetery, so I guess not. And you have me thinking that I've seen a Golem already and don't know it. :D

    I am listening to Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child, narrated by Scott Brick.

    I am a bit disappointed with it. It is a rather unoriginal story.

    I am listening to Little Big Man by Thomas Berger, narrated by Scott Sowers. I have read the book twice before and seen the movie many times.

    I never got around to reading A Christmas Carol. I will leave it until next December.

    Traditionally, the twelve days of Christmas aren't over until January 6th. ;)

    Instead of the 12 Days of Christmas I celebrate the 10 Days of Newton (25 Dec - 4 Jan) so during those days I should be reading science books. However I am looking at Cosmos instead.
