Checking In

Well, yesterday I turned 40.

I suppose my advanced age could excuse the lamentable lack of my posting?

Eh, didn't think so.

More later. Maybe.

John's Reading Report (March 2008)

Over the past month I have finished:

Flashman, George MacDonald Fraser. Not sure I've made up my mind whether I liked this or not. It was a fairly easy read.

The Forever War, Joe Haldeman. An interesting contrast to Heinlein's Starship Troopers or John Scalzi's Old Man's War.

In progress:

Virtual Light, William Gibson. I have neglected Gibson for the last 15 years or so. Time to catch up.

Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, Douglas R. Hofstadter.

Consciousness Explained, Daniel C. Dennett.

On deck:

Suite Francaise, Irene Nemerovsky.

Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain--and How it Changed the World, Carl Zimmer.

Idoru, William Gibson.

Spook Country, William Gibson.
