How was that? I picked it up once and read the back cover, but didn't end up reading it.

For myself:

Recently finished Dune by Frank Herbert. I've just started Stieg Larrson's Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which isn't impressing me so far, but I'll give it the benefit for now and keep reading.

Reading the Telzey and Trigger books. They've aged remarkably well, and I think Flint did an excellent job on the editing.

Just finished "Changeless", the second book in Gail Carriger's The Parasol Protectorate series. The first book was "Soulless". Very enjoyable -- I narfled them up in a day apiece. They're not going to change your life with deep, penetrating insights into the human condition, but they're entertaining books and worth reading. They're quasi-urban fantasy, set in an interesting steampunk Victorian England. The third book isn't out yet, but I'll be getting that one as soon as it hits.

Mistress of the Art of Death wasn't too bad. It was a bit predictable in places, but it was interesting to see how the author wove these very complex worldviews about religion--Christianity, Judaism, women, medicine--into a pretty tightly written novel.

I finished my re-read of Animal Farm and finished The School of Essential Ingredients by Bauermeister. The Bauermeister book was okay--definitely a quick read, but a bit too idyllic in places.


I've just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The beginning of it seems to drag a bit, but it's picking up pace and getting interesting.

Agreed. The first few chapters were slow, but once it got into the main storyline the pacing was much better. I'm not sure I liked the end; the conclusion felt rushed, but I liked the book enough that I'll pick up the sequels.

Currently reading "The Lady Chapel" by Candace Robb as well as the rpg "Ghosts of Albion".

Think I have some other books lying around as well that I have started reading. as in "The Fashion since 1900" by John Peacock, and "Victorian Fashions and Costumes from Harpers Bazaar 1867-1898"

I finished the five Percy Jackson books (I give them a B) and have started "The Shattered Sphere" by Roger MacBride Allen. Awesome sci-fi so far. Von Neumann silicoid-cyborg aliens totally ignoring humanity while they destroy the solar system.
