I finished Captain Vorpatril's Alliance by Lois McMaster Bujold a few days ago, and enjoyed it much more than Cryoburn, even though it's kind of inconsequential.

After that I got started on Blackout by Connie Willis, the first half of her 2011 Hugo Winner, which I was expecting be a long slow read, but I seem to be getting through it surprisingly quickly, and I'm having to force myself to stop when it gets too late. I've seen criticism of Willis's depiction of wartime Britain (and future Oxford, for that matter), but I don't have any problems with it. It's set in the same world as her two previous Hugo winners, Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog, where historians do practical research using time travel, and I'd say Doomsday Book, at least, should be read first.
