I just finished A Dance With Dragons way behind everyone else. Well I guess that is what happens when you have to wait for a book from the library.

Next up is Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to prepare for the new movie. But I have to wait to get that from the library too.

I read this for the first time this year as well. It was a great read and I wish I could take a class on this book just to discuss elements that I am sure I missed.

The Wreck of the Grosvenor by William Clark Russell -- A classic 19th century tale of drama and suspense on the high seas. The text was heavily laden with nautical terms related to sailing ships of the period, but this didn't really interfere with the enjoyment of the story.

Lélia from George Sand. I find her book always a case of ''hit or miss''. This one was a miss.

Finished On The Road To Kandahar by Jason Burke. A really good read. I recommend it to anyone interested in the Middle east/muslim world. It's basically a narration of all his experiences in the muslim world. He tells them as stories so it's more engaging than other non-fiction. All of them are really insightful and there are also quite a few funny ones too (Like the 5mph car chase and the racist jokes written in the American base toilets).

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami

This wasn't one of the top Murakami books I wanted to read but I was in the mood for him and this was one my library actually had on their shelves.

I still have the final chapter left but it turned out to be a very good book. I think the story is deceptively simple but it makes you think about a lot of different things, such as how the things you decide can really change your future and affect the people around you.

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. The novel, to be exact. This is a beautiful, awe-inspiring, and haunting sci-fi drama. It pretty much got me back into literature.

loved Dunk and Egg. all three stories are great. better than Dance with Dragons. though i think that might be cause my fav caharactors are not featured alot. looking forward to next one.

just started Atlas Shrugged only read 1st chapter but it's entertaining enough. a lot of messages in the writing.

I'm halfway through The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors which recounts the events of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Real jaw-dropping action.
