I read compulsively, eclectically and fannishly.

Currently reading

Quand un roi perd la France (Les rois maudits, #7)
Maurice Druon
George Steiner
The Captive & The Fugitive
Marcel Proust, C.K. Scott Moncrieff, Terence Kilmartin, D.J. Enright
Reamde - Neal Stephenson This is by far the pulpiest book that Stephenson's written in a while–it's front-loaded with a fair bit of gaming/tech/SFF geekery, but opening to a random page is far more likely to get you rocket-propelled grenades than role-playing games. If you've read it, The Cobweb, which he cowrote with his uncle George F. Jewsbury and made available under various confusing pseudonyms (in case you're having trouble finding it at the library), is a fairly close match in terms of content, broadly-conceived, and narrative structure.

Lots of action, lots of competency porn, not a lot of big ideas, but a whole lot of fun.
