    I read Robert Ludlum's "The Sigma Protocol" over Christmas. Definitely a page-turner.

    I'm still waiting for Harry Turtledove's "Rulers of the Darkness" to come out in paperback - due in May! In the meantime, I want to read "Boys Will Be Men," about raising strong sons in today's world and finish "I'm Just Here For The Food" by Alton Brown.

    I think I'll focus on exercise, housework, and gaming for a while, too!

    Currently rereading Fellowship of the Ring, until Book 10 of WoT comes out. After that, I'm starting in 'Homeland' from Salvatore.

    Just picked up Peril's Gate by Janny Wurts (fantasy genre) and also Night of Madness by Lawrence Watt-Evans (fluffy fantasy genre). I'll probably read them concurrently with The Ten Things You Cannot Say in America by Larry Elder (Libertarian author/radio host), social sciences genre)

    I completed the Farseer Trillogy (Robin Hobbs) recently - worth a read if you haven't.

    Just started Terry Goodkind's "Wizard's first rule" last night. Nice start, kept me up far too late.

    I'm reading the Diplodocuments. It's a great book. It's about two groups of dinosaurs, the diplodocuses and the tyranosauruses that fight for the mastery of the world (Iraq-US style). And they act all human. It's a bit of a sarcastic parody on the world nowadays.
