I recently finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl who Played with Fire. I thought they were good.

I just started re-reading Mirror of Her Dreams by Stephen Donaldson. I haven't read since it came out in 1987-ish. I always list it as one of my favorite series (with its companion book A Man Rides Through) and I'm hoping it will be as good with reading it today.

The Hunger Games sounds interesting, something my wife might like.

And I heartily recommend the Dresden Files as well as Jim Butcher's fantasy series the Codex Alera.

LIFE by Keith Richards, I'm about a third of the way through.  Honestly, it was kind of boring until he met Mick, now it's picked up.

**************************

I just finished that the week after Christmas.  I enjoyed it, even though it was not Cussler's best.  I'm finding that I'm enjoying his Oregon Files novels a lot more lately.

Collapse by Jared Diamond.  Why some societies fail and other succeed.  Heavy emphasis on environmentally fragile environments and poor resources management.

Upstream Metropolis by Various.  Hisotry of Omaha, Nebraska.  I made it to the 50's and lost interest.  I need to finish it.

Just finished "Pirate Latitudes" by Michael Crichton.

I've also been downloading and reading public domain stuff in iBooks...the first couple of "John Carter, Warlord of Mars" books as well as the first couple of "Tarzan" books. When "The Wizard of Oz" was on over the holidays, I was inspired to start "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". Read that as well as "The Marvelous Land of Oz" (I had the Marvel Treasury edition when I was a kid) and am now reading "Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz".

Just finished FIDALI's WAY, a novel about an American ex-patriate lawyer turned hiker who gets caught up in murder and wartime intrigue in Central Asia.  Also reading THEY CALL ME BABA BOOEY, the latest Howard Stern staffer autobiography.  Always reading a Doc Savage (currently FEAR CAY) and also just read Sterling's Gold, a compendium of wit and wisdom from famed 50s / 60s ad man Roger Sterling.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.  I'm about a third through it now.  I'm trying to read more classics in addition to the bio's I normally read. 

I've been on this book for a few months now.  I go in phases where I read a lot and then where I read just a little.  I'm starting to pick up the pace now.
