Just finished Spindrift by Allen Steele


A very slow-burning book to begin with, I had to force myself to pick it up through the first 50-100 pages then it seriously picked up, in the end I found myself sneaking reads in work.

I now have a choice between Arthur C Clark and Stephen Baxter's Time's eye, Paul McAuley's Fairyland and The stupidest angel: A heartwarming tale of Christmas terror by Christopher Moore.

Just finished The stupidest angel: A heartwarming tale of Christmas terror by Christopher Moore.

It's one of CM's better books (up there with a dirty job) let down only by it's ending.

Can't decide between McAulley or Clarke's book next...

Just finished Timbuktu by Paul Auster. I'm now reading Two Treatises on Government by John Locke.

I just read a hundred pages of Songs Of Susannah last night. I was shocked. I just ogt a reading lamp for my bed, and i sat down and started reading, and next thing i know its 11 and i burned through about 100 pages. I was proud of myself.

Also, im very upset that i know this stupid twist... and im very upset that the book is going the way it is.

David Mitchell's Number9Dream.   This is my third Mitchell book in a row, and it's amazing how they're all somehow linked. Often subtly, but always linked, even though they're set hundreds of years apart from eachother and in different parts of the world.
I spent all of 5 minutes learning about bloody gods just before the exam and its bloody qeistions on fox hunting and abortions.

I always thought that Final Fantasy games were like Quantum Leap. Cid is in every single one, always playing a different role, and usually always 'tied' to an airship.

I guess that would make sense, no? Why did I not think of saying it that way.

I think IX was my favorite Cid, and favorite FF, but despite being an Oglop and king, he still has an airship!

Books 6 and 7 are a bit of a slog, but I'm glad I finished them. And I didn't think the ending was as bad as everyone else did.
 
I just finished Under The Dome a couple days ago. Not King's best novel but generally solid. He managed to avoid his patented great-premise-stupid-ending formula.

I think I'm going to read The Road or Blood Meridian next. I've never read anything by Cormac McCarthy before and people keep telling me how great he is.

Both are excellent. I'm actually using Blood Meridian in my final year project for college. Astounding imagery.


Right now I'm reading A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. Winter is coming!

The Illearth War.


Dunno who its by because I just started reading it, but its part 2 of the Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever trilogy (?, again). I have part 3, but I cannot find part 1 anywhere.

The cool thing is, there's a huge recap of the first book in the first chapter (And a recap chapter before that) so I don't really feel like I'm missing out on much but the juice.


It's pretty good so far and I'm not even to the part where Covenant goes to this magical land where his leprosy is cured and he doesn't believe in anything there.

I loved those books when I was in high school! Kinda depressing now, though. 
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Just gave up on Fairyland by Paul McAuley, the constant leap forwards by ten-twenty years are completely disconnecting.

Now reading Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett.
