I may after I finish A Game of Thrones. It's been one I've meant to pick up long ago in fairness...

Heat Wave, by the fictitious Rick Castle from ABC's "Castle". It's actually a great book, witty and charming, I suggest this book to RoboAxl.

Well Max, I'm glad to take any recommendation. Reading over the summer is the only thing that keeps me sane, so keep them coming :nod:

I don't read much fiction. I'm definately a non-fiction geek guy, and right now I'm reading about the march of the 2nd SS Panzer Division 'Das Reich' through France and the terrible things they did in retaliation for Resistance attacks. Then I've got the personal memoirs of a Swedish Waffen SS volunteer and another of a german sniper on the Eastern front. I also picked up a book about Rage Against the Machine yesterday which I'll read after...

Damn, I am definately a geek :lol:
I think it is high time for a bit of class around here, don't you?

I finished reading Erich Marie Remarque´s war book. Damn, my English sucks, and I can´t translate the title.
But anyway, the book was realle-really good.
And few days ago I finished Estonia´s famous war novel "Names in Marble"
Both books are quite similar and great.

wrong thread
Apparently a new Amy Winehouse 'Greatest Hits' collection is coming out, but the tinfoil and spoons aren't included.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (AKA 'Men who hate Women') - about 100 pages in and so far it's really good!

Giving "Magician" another go. It's an enthralling read but the style can be a little jarring, the writing is all over the place, he spends ages on some minute things, while he skims over other elements that I would feel deserve more attention. But still, a good read so far, if a little uneven
