    I am enjoying this book, although there are people out there who do not like Munn's books. Like everything, I guess you have to take things with a grain of salt.

    Another book on the history and the architecture of the United States Capitol Building in Washington. I love reading about the Capitol...it's my favorite public building and structure in the entire country.

    Uh oh. How did you end up with those?

    I started reading Der Turm by Uwe Tellkamp. The two-part movie on TV last week piqued my interest and I wanted to read the full story. It's not that easy to read but quite captivating.

    Just finished another read through of Shane Dix and Sean William's fantastic Evergence Trilogy. Next is X-Wing: Mercy Kill which is sitting on the bedside table waiting to be read.

    I finished The Impossible Cube about a week ago and decided to give Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy (Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars) another try. I've tried three or four times, and have always gotten distracted before I got to page 50 of the first book. This time for sure! :)

    Dean Koontz's latest Odd Thomas novel, Odd Apocalypse. It's pretty good so far.

    I'm back to working my way through Jack McDevitt's huge anthology. Fantastic stuff. I don't know why this guy isn't more well known.

    Reading an Orson Welles biography called Road to Xanadu, it's part 1 of a two book set. I'm finding it a slog though so I might switch to another book.
