    I finished War and Peace on November 28....took me 5 weeks, because of tiny print and being rather busy besides.

    Since then:

    Doctor Zhivago
    Darkness at Noon
    The Woman in White
    Sister Carrie
    Crime and Punishment

    I finally finished The Shelters of Stone, after 17 years. Now I'm reading The Land of Painted Caves.

    Next up will be Anna Karenin.

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    Finished "Conan the Victorious" by Robert Jordan today. I'm also currently reading "Die Känguru-Apokryphen", the fourth short story collection by anarchist comedian Marc-Uwe Kling about his adventures with his room-mate, the communist kangaroo.

    The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was amazing. Quite a fun read with a new take on a Groundhog Day story.

    Just started A Column of Fire by Ken Follett (Kingsbridge #3).

    I am listening to ‘Terra Nullius’ by Claire G Colman, narrated by Mark Coles Smith and Tamara Shelton. It is about the invasion of Australia and the people are described as The Settlers and The Natives. It is said to be speculative fiction so I have a feeling that The Invasion is not set in the past but in the present day/future.

    Eric Idle’s Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life - A Sortabiography is very entertaining, even if (or because) he’s a shamelessly promiscuous name-dropper. Finished it recently.

    Currently reading Consciousness Explained by Daniel Dennett and Leviathan Wakes by James SA Corey.
