    Read Mindscan by Robert J. Sawyer (him wot wrote FlashForward) before Xmas - pretty good but didn't quite wow me. Maybe I'll try another of his - any pointers to which I should try next?
    Oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh even harder.

    Currently reading Insomnia by Stephen King. Well I say reading. I do audio books a lot and this is one of those. Unabridged, very nicely read and a number of tie-ins to The Dark Tower series, which i'm sure some of you will be familiar with.

    Just started Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. His first one was fun so looking forward to this.

    I've finally finished The Crow Road and now I've added The Wind in the Willows to my reading list.

    I love Scott Lynch. His website's been saying that the next one will be released soon for ages. Enjoy Red Seas; it lives up to Locke Lamora, in my opinion.
    In the end, nothing you do matters; all that matters is what you do.

    Just finishing up ancient shores, a recommendation from this very forum, I'd have to score it mixed.
    It was entertaining, but not engrossing, and the reactions of politicians, press and public alike was not believable. Many possibilities that the premise opened up were missed.
    But it was entertaining.

    I'm not sure what I think of that. On the one hand you're getting the unabridged content, on the other hand you're having to exert no effort, and are free to let your attention wander and let it wash over you. It's obviously purer than dramatisations from a novel, but I'm unsure if I believe the essential experience is equivalent. On the other hand, while I have read a few of King's, I'm in no hurry to read any more and would be more likely I think to do what you're doing

    I'm a fan of the audio book, great in the car.

    I'll speak up in favour of audio books as well.
    Great for any kind of travelling, and slow day in the office.
