larry Niven's Lucifer's hammer
I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

A grim and gritty read, read it a few years back.

I tend to be very grateful to Niven for his research of the scientific aspects of his writings. The legendary episode with Ringworld Engineers- he wrote a book to explain and compensate for the technical errors of Ringworld- is quite telling and appeals to my autistic fact sticking pathology.

Niven is yet to write something I didn't enjoy, which is awesome considering he isn't that great of a writer. he just writes about awesome things.

I enjoyed that one gauda

"A Christmas Cornucopia: The Hidden Stories Behind Our Yuletide Traditions" by the inky fool himself, Mark Forsyth. A quick, fun read and just as enjoyable as his previous books.
 
Klenotka
"The dark half" by Stephen King on my way to work and back, and "Kiefer Sutherland biography" in the bathroom Grin

Lycanthia, one of the many Tanith Lee books I still haven't gotten to yet but I was finally able to track it down.

It's a short gothic novel about werewolves... but it's werewolves done Tanith style. Wink

There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes

George Orwell didn't recommend it.

What a brilliant essay! I've not read that before and have bookmarked for repeat enjoyment.
@Rainesz, is that what it's like for you?

Ha! A brilliant piece of work, I suppose its like anything too much of a good thing can become an irritation or a mundanity at best..

But books are wonderful, as sources of knowledge and entertainment, but also as a source of pleasant tactile and olfactive senses.. Something you just don't get with ebooks and PDFs

Think my tolerance would be pretty high though, still love visiting libraries and old book shops with no real purpose other than browse and meander through various books etc. Great place for maps too... Like Bilbo Baggins I love maps Grin

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Travisina. I find Orwell to be eminently readable, whatever he's talking about, whether it be English cooking, how to make a cup of tea, reading vs. smoking, or his experiences in a French hospital or an English police cell. Like Robert Graves, George Orwell is one of those writers whose skill at writing make him so easy to read.

It's also interesting reading his columns because you can see his thoughts coming together for works like "1984" (such as here).

I'm with you there, PS! When I lock up at night I have to avoid going into our book room because I can easily lose half an hour when I should be getting to bed.
