Once I finish up Perelandra, I'm diving into the new Dresden at long last.

Chosen Soldier by Dick Couch, about the selection and training of US Army Special Forces (Green Berets).

All About Honor by David Weber. I'd read the Honor Harrington series up to that point, but also burnt out before I got all the way through. This time I started with the book before this one and am progressing.

Tales of the Dark Millennium, an anthology of short stories of WH40K.

How is this one? I loved Wicked and Son of a Witch, but the one about the lion I hated.

Constant Gardener by John le Carre. One of his most 'action' novels, also one of his best. Absolutely horrifying, gut-wrenching stuff.

I'm about two thirds the way through A Storm of Swords (George R R Martin). I will then probably take a break from A Song of Ice and Fire and tackle the latest Stephen King, 11/22/63.
