But I wouldn't try writing a book report on them.

Jandars_Hope is surprisingly tart
Yay! BookClub!

I've read Neverness and only have 200 pages left of the sequel, The Broken God. The Broken God is the first in a trilogy and is written by a British Author, David Zindell, so you guys in the States probably haven't heard of him or the books. They are full of Philosophy and Science and Mathmatics, good storyline but sometimes hard to understand. I'm really enjoying it though and can't wait to read the next installment.

So I went to Borders last night and bought myself a book, Armegeddon's Children - Genesis by Terry Brooks, only to realize I had already bought it in hard back about 6 months ago and had read it (The hardback didnt have the title "Genesis" so I thought it was a different book until I started reading it and was thinking, Wow, this is really familiar. I flip back to the last chapter, wow, the exact same cliff hanger...) Man is that embarrassing.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.

An admirably readable fantasy tome about English magic circa the Napoleonic Wars. In a lot of ways the niftiest thing about it is that I have absolutely no idea where it is going - I'm just along for the ride. Recommended on a library newsletter to which I subscribe, I've been very pleased.

~Aldin, who also strongly recommends His Majesty's Dragon for Napoleonic era fantasy

The Seige of Eternity by Frederick Pohl, The Return of Nathan Brazil by Jack Chalker, and Live from New York by Tom Shales.

I usually have 3 or 4 books going at once... whichever one happens to be closest when I'm in the mood to read, I grab it and go.

I am reading Wolves at the border - Robert N Charrette - Classic Battletech - I love that era. I guess after you grow up you never lose sight of your past. I squeeze that in around Engineering Economy - I guess that even after you graduate, you never quit schooling

Excellent choice I'm particularly fond of the series of books on the foundation of the Grey Death Legion.
