Currently reading: Terry Pratchett: Men at arms. Before that I finished Drew Karpyshyn's mass effect book: Ascension. Summer is good time to read scifi and fantasy

its so hard to read, that I wouldn't have bothered reading it at all if only it was not that expensive to begin with... X(

Find the easter egg I've hidden in OASIS (the MMO simulation game).

Spoiler
I'm a big fan of the book as well, and I remembered fantasizing that SWTOR will have an unannounced mission that will be uncovered by those who tends to love exploration, and that there is an easter egg that would give us some legendary items and/or title.

I am lucky enough to be able to fly and not drive to our events. Man...if I had to drive from Texas to all of these events that would be painful.

PSA: Don't drive and read.

But it's ok to pilot and read? I think they'd take away your license for that...

Also: nope, not finished War and Peace yet. I'm terrible at reading books... terrible...

If I wanted to read, I'd have stayed with WoW.

BOOM!

I'm currently re-reading my entire L.E. Modesitt, Jr collection. The "Recluse" series have always been one of my all time favorites but I've yet to read anything he's written that hasn't kept me awake for longer than I should be.

Also a huge fan of John Ringo and David Weber and am patiently waiting for their newest works to hit paperback since I can not afford to buy hardbacks the way I tear through books.

I just started Dominic Lieven's Russia Against Napoleon. Tolstoy was, obviously, a very good writer, but getting one's history from him is probably not the best idea. (Not that I'm suggesting that you're doing that. But a lot of people do.) Lieven's book is a shade too pop-y and almost entirely too nationalistically colored for me, but it does fill a need and certainly discusses the campaigns, especially 1812, in as much or more depth than David Chandler's magisterial The Campaigns of Napoleon.
