Reading book 4 of the George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series (aka game of thrones series). Once I'm done with that I need to pick up the latest edition to the Wheel of Time by Sanderson. I just hope he finished up Jordan's masterpiece series.

I'm reading Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Half way through and it is a great read.

Still no mods around?
Well, if we are to have two identical threads going on, I'll be a post whore, I'm reading a self study guide to take the Technicians Exam for Ham Radio.

Currently reading Ranma ½ in the Chinese translation from the early nineties, hand in hand with the Chinese-English Dictionary by Chik Hon-Man and Ng Lam Sim-yuk published the Chinese University Press (Chinese University of Hong Kong). Up to volume seven. The zaniness mounts.
[Note: the Chinese translation was done years before the English translation. I've got the entire set in Chinese, but only a dozen volumes in English.]
When I can't fall asleep late at night I grab at random under or next to the bed, usually fishing-up a cookbook or a dictionary. That's always good for a few hours.

"Flags of the Forgotten: Nationalism on the Celtic Fringe", by William Greenberg. Interesting slim volume on the growth of nationalism in the Celtic lands of the UK. It covers mostly Scotland and Wales,although there are chapters on Man and Cornwall as well.

I am currently reading "From Eternity to Here" by Frank Viola, Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" (having a slow go with this one), and Francis Chan's "Crazy Love". Not sure which classic book I will do next, but thinking about a Holmes book that I can smoke a few bowls of Sherlock while reading.

I just finished A Memory of Light, hell of a book that ends a hell of a series. Fantasy isn't for everyone but for those that love it, The Wheel of Time is 14 books and a novella you want to look into.
I will finish up Liberating Atlantis and Stranger in a Strange Land most likely... them maybe move onto Why I hate Canadians by Will Ferguson or reread Dune.

Reading back issues of Scientific America articles on bio-chemistry and genetics so I can hold a conversation with my daughter.
