More Reading.

Can't get enough of these dead trees.

Terry Pratchett : "Making Money". On first reading it seems to me to be more of an average Discworld novel than "Going Postal" which I reckon was his best to date. Overall I'd give it an 8/10 but he gets 11/10 for prescience - writing a fantasy allegory about a banking crisis in a fictional London\New York that hits the market three weeks after the first major run on a UK Bank in 130 or so years is stunning timing.

In Flight -
William Gibson
"Spook Country"
Niall Ferguson "Empire"

Yet to start
Cormac McCarthy: "The Road"
Richard Dawkins: "The God Delusion"
Robert Harris: "Imperium"
