I thought Ringworld and Ringworld Engineers were okay, but I couldn't make it through Ringworld Throne.

I'm re-reading two series simultaneously right now. On paper I'm going through A Song of Ice and Fire. When I walk or jog I'm listening to Audio Renaissance's new unabridged recordings of the Dune series. They've released up through Children of Dune, and I think the plan's to release the entire series through Chapterhouse Dune by year's end.

Fraser died?

Niles, and Daphne must be devastated.

Finally delving into it. Can't believe I waited this long. I knew it was a classic, just never got around to it. I actually laughed out loud [laughing out loud, at a book] reading Iggy's letter to the adominable vendor in Kansas City who had the temerity to complain about a shipment of pants too short to sell.

Read The Blind Side by Michael Lewis. It was cool, and I like the way he mixes history of the game with the biography of Oher.

I also read The Seventh Son by Orson Scott Card. I'm mainly familiar with Card through his Enderverse books, so I was surprised to hear about the premise of this alternate history with a fantasy twist. Anyway, I like the concept better than the execution, but the book was a quick read. I'll probably read a few more in the series.

I'm going to start Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver now, since it's Farmer's Market season. It should keep me motivated to center our diets around fresh, seasonal food throughout the summer.

"Death is Lighter than a Feather" by David Westheimer. It's written in a style similar to Cornelius Ryan's classic histories (Longest Day, Bridge too Far, Last Battle), but follows the invasion of Kyushu in November 1945. Very well researched and plausible.

"Computed Tomography: Physical Principles and Clinical Applications"

by Euclid Seeram

Copyright is 2001, but the basic principles can still be applied to modern equipment. Clinical applications have advanced beyond the scope of the book, but its still nice reading.

It's every nerds dream to learn the physics and principles of a 32/64/128 slice CT scanner. Good on ya.

I'm reading a great book by Charles Ferguson called : No End In Sight. Iraq's Descent Into Chaos.

It's the follow up to Ferguson's 2007 documentary of the same name about how the administration literally lost the peace after winning the war. Very detailed and a must read for anybody wanting to understand why this conflict will not be resolved any time soon.
Just recently finished The Assassin's Gate: America In Iraq by George Packer. It's another book that details how poor the post war planning was by the administration during the pre-war buildup. Incredible book.

I just started reading The Rift by Walter Williams. It's about a modern New Madrid quake and what would happen in the aftermath. One review compared it to The Stand, and about 60 pages in it certainly has that vibe - introducing numerous unrelated characters before disaster strikes. Also like The Stand, it's needlessly wordy but interesting enough to overcome it. I'm liking it so far.

I just read a book written by a guy named Chris Jericho. His story about getting into pro wrestling and the struggle to get to the top. It was a good book and IMO the best one written by a wrestler.
