What have you read this month?

 Just wondering what people are reading at the moment. I came here a fair bit to get ideas on good authors but since the sci-fi thread got killed thought I'd ask and see what has been keeping you up late at night... Reading, that is.



Recently I've read:



Iain Banks - Transition

Phillip Pullman - The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ

Marshal Carper - The Cauliflower Chronicles

Mark Haddon - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Stephen King's - Dark Tower volume 1&2


Only thing this month I've read is Everything's Eventual by Stephen King. Really just reading two of the stories though.

MMA Translations - You can see my whole (90% complete at least) reading history (sorted by date so you can also see just this month) here:

That is an interesting collection - thanks for sharing. 



GEB by Hofstadter still messes with my head but is such an awesome book. You've got some titles there I will take a look for.



I just finished Stalingrad by Anthony Beever.

 

Heroes of the Space Marines
Death and Dishonour
Legends of the Space Marines
Song's of love and death
the ultramarines omnibus
fear the alien
a feast for crows
the fall of camelot
After Hours: Tales from Ur-Bar
Hanko Döbringer's Fechtbuch on the Teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer

Jeremy --  I've been wanting to read some George R.R Martin - bit of a band wagon thing really seeing that its now been made into a series but i'd prefer to read the books than watch it on TV.



Cuhulain - Is the Legends of the Space Marines from Warhammer? I saw a few of these in Waterstones a while back but didnt know if they were straight novels or tied into something else...Are they any good?



About to read:



Richard K Morgan - The Steel Remains

Lynne Truss - Eats, Shoots and Leaves

Plus a bunch of the Terry Brooks saga that I picked up at the second hand book shop

A little of everything:

*Tell to Win

*The Talent Code

*The Sixth Man

*The Greatest Game Ever Played

yep its from warhammer 40k its a short story anthology,good stuff,i highly recommend any warhammer or warhammer 40k anthology's

 SecondBase - its good to read different stuff. I've definitely got favourite genres but it is good to read up on differrent interests.

Yeah - the way it was written really sucks you into the world of an autistic mind. It is slow but really builds up the tension - very good ending. Worth trying to find that tape..
