Ah, the holidays, time to take out a good book.

Right now, at Greg's advice, I'm reading Dumas' "The Three Musketeers".

Surprisingly witty and entertaining!

On the shelf rest "The Voyage of the Space Beagle" (!!!),
and Henry Rollins' "Do I come here often?".

If you like The Three Musketeers, give The Count of Monte Cristo try. Only book I had to read for high school that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I'm working my way slowly through Elizabeth Haydon's Elegy of a Lost Star while I wait for the next Dresden Files book to hit the bookstore...

Also, Lindqvist's Handling the Undead on the iPad.

I got to say, I didn't particularly like The Count, mostly to the overamount of characters and side plots.

However, I might give it a second try as an audiobook; about six months ago, I got myself a subscription at audible.com, and it's become my gateway to stuff I'd otherwise not read.

As to Dumas, I'll try "The Last Cavallier" before I get to Monte Cristo,
as an audiobook. :)

Next will be the end of David Farland's "Runebound" series, a fantasy circle that I kind of liked.
(I'm not into fantasy at all, at least usually. I only read this kind of literature, if I absolutely have to.)

Space 1889 Red Sands, Savage Worlds Edition, just arrived in the mail. Pure awesomeness.

I should really start reading literature again, but these days its mostly RPG stuff 8)

Besides work-related stuff...

The Jester at Scar (one of the "Dumarest" books by E.C. Tubb)
Dragons at Dawn (liking it so far!) + Chainmail + First Fantasy Campaign.
A pdf of Stars without Number (excellent SciFi RPG...and free to boot!)
Mote in God's Eye (probably one of the best SciFi books I've ever read.)
