Default End of month Book Check - what are reading right now!

Scalzi's - The Androids Dream, i'm about halfway through and i'm enjoying it but finding it a slower read than most i've picked up recently.

TOLL THE HOUNDS - the newest volume of the Malazan Book of the Fallen by Stephen Erikson. Just came out this week. This series has gotten so epic and so baroque that I'm genuinely having trouble keeping up -- but at the same time, I can't stop.

NECROPOLIS - Dan Abnett. Third volume of the Gaunt's Ghosts series of Warhammer 40K game fiction. Compelling stuff for some reason.

I started that book after being satisfied with Scalzi's OLD MAN'S WAR series... and got incredibly bored and put the book down early. I never used to do that, but using the library rather than paying cash makes me feel a lot more free to be discriminatory with my time.

Dark Glory War by Michael Stackpole, I believe. It's a good read, and a good series.

Currently I'm in the middle of reading the Black Company, #5 or #6. (whichever one switches from Croaker to Lady as narrator.)

At this point, all I'm reading is textbooks...

I just finished Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg. I'm starting Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Oh, and I'm also reading a textbook.

I'm reading a mystery, Blood of the Wicked. It's as far as I could get from the work in progress.

Picked up an Amazon Kindle. I think if and when I review it, it'll get numerous bad marks, but it does deliver material from Amazon to it FAST and readable.

Currently looking over the advanced sample of Vincent Bugliousi's "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder".

I'm rereading Burnt Offering by Larual K Hamilton. While I'm enjoying rereading the book it makes me very sad because is shows just how much the character has changed and not for the best. Hamilton was once an awesome writer and it sad to be reminded.

i've put Scalzi aside for a couple of days in favour of the second Jz Parks book by Jennifer Rardin, which I am hooked on.
