Books and things

A set of questions apparently doing the rounds:

What are you currently reading?

Tad Williams: Shadowplay (or whichever one is actually the second one in that series - I get the names mixed up). I'm quite enjoying it, and liked the first, but left rather a long time between them (due to waiting for the rest of the series to be finished) and I'm not making as much time to read as I used to, so it's slow going.

Also reading The Mysteries of Udolpho via the Great Reads app on my iPod - but that's definitely stalled.

And Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things as a set of shorts to dip into.

What have you recently finished?

Terry Pratchett: Where's my cow? I've read quite a bit of Pratchett so far this year (Dodger, Snuff, Unseen Academicals and I Shall Wear Midnight). Plus Spares (Michael Marshall Smith), Impakto (Richard Calder), On the Black Hill (Bruce Chatwin), The Light of Day (Graham Swift), and The Athenian murders (José Carlos Somoza). Not a huge number of books for a whole year!

What do you think you'll read next?

A Memory of Light (the last in the Wheel of Time series) by Jordan/Sanderson will probably be here in time to start that next - but I do have the to-read pile of doom. So possibly I'll pick one of those instead - there's the rest of the Tad Williams series of course, and some Iain (M) Banks, plus a fab box set of the books True Blood is based on which Emily got me for my birthday.
