"The rise of Endymion" by Dan Simmons. It is the third part of the Sci-fi Hyperion series.
It is very good if you like the genre

Just back from Vacation, and still reading Diana Gabaldon's Voyager. It seems a little better paced than Dragonfly in Amber.

I think I have a new favorite author: Lisa Gardner. I read her latest book in March (Love You More) and am now reading Hide.

Superfreakonomics. I love any sort of book that studies human behavior, trends and society.

I just started reading "These Things Hidden" by Heather Gudenkauf. This is her second novel and is just as fantastic as her first, which is "The Weight of Silence". I highly recommend both.

I'm currently re-reading George R. R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones" (and the rest of the series) thanks to the HBO mini-series and the phenomenal good news that the next book in the series is finished and will be on bookstore shelves in July of this year! Hooray!

I'm also reading "Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky and "The Great Influenza" by John Barry. I like non-fiction to balance out my fiction as much as I used to like chocolate to balance out my salty potato chips.

I do like SF, Chubbykins, so I'm going to check out those Dan Simmons novels; thanks for the tip!

i just finished "a kiss of shadows" by laurell k hamilton. the first book in the merry gentry series. i've read most of her anita blake novels, and was curious about this one. it's about faeries... but in a dark way. kinda the same way anita blake is about vampires and that ilk.

I'm currently "listening" to the audiobook of Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I also went out and bought the book to accompany it as this is my first time listening to an audiobook and didn't know if I would enjoy a book read to me (I got the idea from here that I could only listen to the book when I'm working out, and if you get to a good part and want to keep listening... well you gotta keep exercising ). So far - I'm liking the audiobook, it's keeping me motivated to step on the treadmills!

I really enjoyed that book until a certain point. A read it a few years ago so I don't remember the specifics, but there was a chapter that was basically saying (as I remember it) that the best predictor of a child's academic success was the number of books his parents owned. He made some arguments in that chapter that I just didn't agree with, or thought weren't well thought through, or something. And it colored my perception of everything else I'd read up to that point.
