    Right now, reading Pandora's Star, by Peter F Hamilton. Great sci-fi set in the future. It's got action, sex, aliens. But no sex with aliens, thankfully haha.
    It's a good book, I've read it before. There's a sequel, Judas Unchained, thats next on my list.

    The Xanth series, by Piers Anthony. My girlfriend has the whole series, and I read the first book (A Spell for Chameleon) in a day. I'm on book two: The Source of Magic. They're a fun read; fantasy with magic and dragons and centaurs... I love it. :)

    I've not tried those yet, but want to.
    I read all of his Incarnations of Immortality series, which I thought was brilliant. The way the books all interlink is great.

    I just started The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I downloaded the sample on my Nook. I'm undecided whether I'm going to buy the full version or not.

    I'm reading _The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency_ series by Alexander McCall Smith. I'm on the 10th book. It's entertaining, light reading.

    At the moment I'm reading a non-fiction book; The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry - Jon Ronson, very good if you are interested in that sort of thing!

    How is Zero Day? Isn't that a new series or a stand alone? I read all his Camel Club, Maxwell & King stuff but haven't looked to closely at this one yet.

    I just finished Catch Me by Tess Gerritsen, which comes out on Tuesday - love all her books. I'm listening to CJ Box's Free Fire. And currently I'm trying to catch up on my stack of magazines before picking up another book.

    I don't know if you have already read it but another book which I read a few months back that in a round about way led me to the Jon Ronson one is Paranormality: Why We See What Isn't There by Richard Wiseman ---- very very very interesting.
  • Catching up on Harlan Coben novels and thumbing through Sun Tzu's Art of War..again.
    Also reading an older edition of Contemporary Nutrition.

  • The Well Behaved Child by John Rosemond

    I love it!!! I have been laughing all the way through. I can't wait to start the program. :love: :laugh:

    I am about 1/4 of the way into A Game of Thrones, but I put it aside for now until I finish the child rearing book.

    I started Uglies by Scott Westerfield yesterday. Not something I would normally choose, but I joined a Goodreads Bookclub and it is one of this months books. Really enjoying it so far...

    I don't know why, but the Heku series by T.M. Nielsen has grabbed my attention for the past week now. I'm on book 3, Encala. The series is extremely fast-paced with the characters...meaning...they're given almost no time to develop, and they transition way too easily between scenes. The Twilight undertones are blatantly obvious (the Heku are just vampires, but they claim they aren't; the whole love triangle deal with the main female character; the main female character attracts all the vampires, etc.). As corny and annoying as it is, I can't put these books down. :laugh:
