Now I have started Wellington: The Iron Duke by Richard Holmes.

That looks interesting.

Rereading the Wool/Silo series from Hugh Howey. This is to refresh my memory before tackling the series finale, Dust, which came out last week.

I finished Leviathan Wakes yesterday, and liked it a lot, ending and all. I'm going to read book 2, Caliban's War, pretty soon I think.

Started another Kate Shugak book today, number nine, Hunter's Moon. These mysteries are pretty short, so I try to space them out so that I don't get up to date on the series too quickly. Every time I've finished one, I just want to start the next one. I like both the setting (rural Alaska), and the characters.

Currently reading the latest from Sharon Lee and Steve Miller -- Technical Details. This is a chapbook with two stories previously posted on the Baen Book site, Landed Alien, a story of Kara ven'Arith, and Eleutherios, where we have a down and out abbey being helped by a rather unlikely saviour.

I'd read both before when they were posted on the Baen site, but this is a pleasant excuse to re-read them.

I've been meaning to reread these forever. Even better, you say? I shall use your post as a goad.

This series is on my TBR list - to follow my re-reading of the Forsyte Saga ... I'm devoting my lunch reading at work to re-experiencing the magic of these series.

I assume you will reread A Modern Comedy, too? End of the Chapter is a different issue. Such a let down!

Indeed - I use the term Forsyte Saga generically to include all 3 trilogies - and the intervening novellas. To be honest, I don't remember End of the Chapter at all - so I'll be able to confirm/deny your experience!

Riptide is my favorite Preston & Child. The Ice Limit was good also.

Just finished "The Passage," by Justin Cronin.

It's nice to read an imaginative novel that is also beautifully written.

It's a very long work, for those not familiar with it. There is also a second volume in this series.

Highly recommended for readers who enjoy a literate novel that transcends the tarnished, tired boundaries of ordinary fiction, and gives new life to familiar tropes.

Finished three books within the past few days.

1. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis. I enjoyed this tale of a time traveler who sought to visit Europe during the early 14th century but accidentally found herself instead in the mid-14th century during the time the Black Death was ravaging Europe. The book seemed almost as if it had been written by two people, as the people and world of the near-future seemed somewhat shallow and unconvincing, while the people of the Middle ages seemed to come alive with quite a bit of depth. The sense of reality in the latter seemed to me to more than make up for the faults of the former, and I give this book a hearty thumbs-up. This is the current MobileRead Book Club selection, and more of my opinions on the book as well as the opinions of other club participants can be found in this thread.

2. Evolution of the Word by Marcus J. Borg. Someone with the academic credentials necessary to do the job finally published the 27 books of the New Testament in the order in which they were written; beginning with the 7 letters of Paul nearly universally accepted as genuine and ending with II Peter, which most scholars believe was written sometime in the second century by an unknown author. I highly recommend this to anyone who is curious as to how Christianity and the Christian Bible grew took shape in its formative years.

3. The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime by Adrian Raine. This is a somewhat controversial book, but it is very thought-provoking and the author seems to bend over backwards in his attempt to fairly portray opinions contrary to his own. Very heavily footnoted and well-researched; I give this one a big thumbs up also.
