Finished Angry White Pyjamas. I started and finished Stephan King's "The Gunslinger", and have moved on to "Rabbit, Run" by John Updike. The Rebel is still being progressed on slowly.

Just finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Excellent. I can see why it won the Mann Booker prize.

Starting on About a Boy

So far this month The Wolves of Calla (I liked it, can't wait for the next one!), The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon (a book-club throw-in, but very good), First Meetings in the Enderverse (good for a fan of the series, but really short), and one of the Sandman Graphic Novels, I think Brief Lives (very good, now I'll probably read the rest).

I've read a bit more than usual lately due to a couple of days being trapped inside by weather.

I've just started Fallen Angels by Tracy Chevalier. It's interesting so far.

I'm looking forward to "Seduced by Moonlight" from Laurell k Hamilton which should be out at the begining of February.

I'm currently reading it's predecessor A Caress of Twilight, the second book in the Merry Gentry series which really hooked me into Hamilton's world of Erotic & frightening Fearies, Goblins and monsters set in contemporary America.

Hamilton's Anita Blake series is still my favourite, but this series of magic, eroticism and the reality of mythic fearie kingdoms in the US is very compelling.

Well, Digital Fortress wasn't all that great.

I am on Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson now.

I'm currently reading "The Complete Sherlock Holmes" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I made a resolution this year to read a lot of the classic authors whom I have never read before...and Doyle was on the top of the list.

I just ordered that the other day. Please let me know what you think of it. I'm looking forward to it.

I just finished "The Stone Cold Truth" by Steve Austin. It was ok, but I thought it was a bit of a let down.

Just started Monsoon by Wilbur Smith. Only 25 pages into it and I loved the beginning

I've owned this book for a couple of years and had read Neal's other books. I started Cryptonomicon right when I bought it and then put it down before I made the first 50 pages. Under the advice of friends and that advice passed on here, stick with it, the math stuff dies down and the story actually gets going shortly. Enjoying it so far. All prep to be able to read Quicksilver.

Last book read was a Robin Cook's Mortal Fear. I'm now halfway through Cook's Brain and have Steve Martin's The Pleasure of my Company, Cold Mountain, and a Tim Robbins (self-power guru, not actor) to read next

Okay, I finished Tuf Voyaging.

Wow....

Speechless. It is an awesome read, I am still thinking about it 2 days after.... It is very thought provoking, about social policies... about power... I wish GRRM continue to write about Haviland Tuf.

Very memorable, I will be rereading this soon.

I used to love the Kay Scarpetts books, how did you find "Blow Fly"? It got some pretty bad reviews so I'm waiting for the paperback.

Finshed Hobb's Farseer trilogy. It was excellent! I've moved straight on to the Liveship Traders trilogy.

Just finished Michael Crichton's Prey, and didn't really like it that much. Now I'm on to The Drawing of The Three (King).
