I always have a few going but, the latest is London At War 1939 -1945 by Philip Ziegler. It provides a very real glimpse of life in that city during the war.

Title: Fury, by Salmon Rushdie. Wish I "got" all his references. I feel stuff flying over my head; still liking it.

Also, Silence of the Grave, a novel by Arnaldur Indridason - detective work in Iceland. Interesting.

I'm reading Hangman by Faye Kellerman. It's good, but going fast.

I'm glad it is a fast read because I got the last 3 books I ordered, one by Anne McCaffrey, another by Alan Dean Foster and the last a one book trilogy by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

What series are you reading? Yeah, I'm in book heaven. I got a total of 6 books I ordered from Abe Books. If my current book weren't so good, I'd put it down and wallow in my old favorites.

Are you watching it on HBO too? I am both reading and watching. The book helps me understand the show and the show helps me understand the book.
