    I'll let you know when I get there.
    I don't remember the title, but I really liked his (short)story about the world uniting to rid itself of a certain nation through biological warfare; testtubes with dissease thrown from balloons! - Now that's old-school SciFi.

    There's a lot of obscure writers from those days, which are now much more easy to access thanks to POD and the Internet. You can find a lot of free stuff for the Nook and the Kindle, and at the Gutenberg Project.

    About half of a book of short stories about Sheriff Walt Longmire, by Craig Johnson. I've enjoyed most of the Longmire novels, but the stories were too boring to finish.

    Listened to the first volume of Heroes of Olympus, by Rick Riordan. Good book, but I didn't like the narrator, so after the second volume -- which will be good to listen to on a long drive in a couple weeks -- I'm going to switch to reading them.

    I have one more book in the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot. I have really enjoyed reading them.

    Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke. It's been a while since I've read such a page-turner.

    Before that, Behind The Myths by John Pickard. It's a long book, with extensive quoting of other historical works (over 800 annotations) and presents the case that the origins of the three Abrahamic religions had less to do with theological robustness than with political, social and - in the case of Christianity and Islam at least - economic factors.

    The Giver Quartet. I read The Giver as a child, but until recently I had no idea it had not just one, but THREE sequels. They're great reads!
