Re: What are you reading now?

After much searching, swearing, phoning and some crying, I have finally got all the missing books in the Cornelius Murphy series and 3 of the Armageddon series. Couldn't get them all in Australia so had to get some from the UK.

Have finished Cornelius Murphy. Currently reading They Came and Ate Us.

Had a bash at Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion just recently. I like to think I have a reasonable good vocabulary at my diosposal, but I did find it hard going at times. Great book though.

I received a copy of Necrophenia for my birthday, but that will stay unopened until I have finished the Armageddon Series. With the Christmas break coming up I intend to spend quality time on holiday with a book in one hand and a cold beer in the other by a pool in tropical North Queensland.

Double Star was ok, but I expected more from a Hugo winner.

Now onto:
"Helliconia Spring" by Brian Aldiss
&
"The Time Machine" by HG Wells

I'm currently reading the Qi Book of the Dead and Plants and Animals of Pond and Stream ( prepare me for my dissertation). I've got David Attenboroughs Life Stories and the new Last Chance to See next.

(Yes, yes, I've been gone ages. I have no idea why either!)

Book of the dead and pond life? Jawdropping!
What's the dissertation? Does it involve zombies?

I wish, its comparing animal and plant diversity in Lathkill dale. A lot of fun wading round in the river looking for invertebrates, and fish if I'm lucky. Smiling
