Star Wars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig

I enjoyed that book quite a bit and didn't even mind the present tense.  One of the later chapters made me chuckle, especially after reading Lost Stars.

I still have to read Lost Stars or the other ones that came out on Force Friday, but have them on my Kindle though.

I got Warriors and Dangerous Women, anthologies edited by Gardner Dozois and GRRM. Admittedly only because of the GRRM stories (accounts of the Dance of Dragons!), but the overall quality was actually pretty great for all the stories. With exceptions, but nothing terrible.

Global Minotaur: America, Europe and the Future of the Global Economy by Yanis Varoufakis.  Interesting writing style, easy to understand and worthwhile read in general. Broke some illusions I had about EU and is definitely an enlightening reading experience.

The Haunting of Hill House.  60 pages into to a 180 page book, and i'm bored out of my mind.  I do hope it gets more interesting soon.

Reading Godfather again.

That's a good book, except for the weird aside about Lucy's vagina.

Great read. I learned much from that one.

i think i'm gonna go on an amazon bender to get all the ciaphas cain novels by sandy mitchells. reading the tvtropes page it seems like right up my alley. "a mix between warhammer 40k and blackadder", so says the page.
@ guizonde: I think I like the way you think.

It's been a while since I've sunk my teeth into a long running series, so I decided to give The Wheel of Time a try. I'm just over a third of the way through the prequel, and so far it's quite promising.

Books 9-11 aren't as good. Especially Crossroads of Twilight. But that's just, like, my opinion, man.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

Yeah, I've heard that the later books tend to drag on a bit. Still, it's hardly a deal breaker. Or maybe it is. It remains to be seen, I suppose.
