 The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx. I can't believe that guy survived the '80s.

 WWW Wake by Robert J. Sawyer. A novel about the internet achieving sentience. Excellent book.

 Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear. This book is I guess a sequel to  Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World. The edition I read has a number of illustrations throughout the text. A very fun book.

Finally decided to begin Stephen King's Dark Tower series. For whatever reason, I just never picked up the first book, even though I've owned it for several years.

Also reading Nora Ephron's I Remember Nothing...it's hilarious!

Just started The TERRA COTTA ARMY by John May. About Emperor Qin Shi Huang and the (you guessed it) more then 8,000 Terra Cotta Warriors.

I'll update when I'm done.

ECHO BURNING - a straight-forward thriller by Lee Child.

BITTER SEEDS by Ian Tregillis - done reading it, but thought I'd recommend it all the same. A sci-fi novel set during WW II. Very exciting.
(slight disclaimer: Ian's a friend of mine, but his books IS really good!)

I`m currently reading "The fall" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. It`s the second part of a trilogi concerning a kind of virus outbreak. I won`t spoil the surprise for those who haven`t read it.

The first one is called "The Strain". That was a really good read.

Just finished THE PASSAGE - by Justin Cronin

Huge, thick (700+ pages) vampire novel, set in the near future when a government-created virus turns people into vampires who then infect others (thru obvious means), which leads to the fall of civilization.

Part of the novel is about what leads up to this, but the bulk is about the survivors a couple of generations down the road.

Couldn't finish it before I had to return it to the library, but it was such a slog almost didn't put myself on the list again. Finally finished it, but...it wasn't worth the slog. Interesting situations/developments/characters, but sparsely written; and ultimately, not a satisfying end in any way.

Henry Clay — The Essential American, by Davis S. Heidler and JeanneT. Heidler. 

It's a great examination of a historical figure who was one of a triumvirate of Senate greats that also included Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun.
