Not read a book in a while, but got Dodger by Terry Pratchett for my birthday, so when I'm not shooting Sectoids I'll be reading that before bed Posted Image

Hah! Same here! Though I haven't got around to reading it yet; I have been distracted reading some of Charles Stross's Laundry series. Think a mix of Jame Bond, geeky computer science and Lovecraftian horror.

I still maintain that we are clones - same birthday etc etc, just different ages.

Started Dodger now and loving it only a few pages in. Not going to rush it so I've got something to settle down with when I'm off for a week at the start of November.
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

Red Country, Joe Abercrombie.  I've been trying to read this and play XCOM simultaneously all day, with limited success.

The Best of John W. Campbell (Most of my library is thanks to Amazon and Thriftbooks).

THE man who made the genre of Science Fiction as we know it. (He also was Issac Asimov's Teacher) Was responsible for the movies The Thing from another world, and The Thing. Just so that anyone wonders (heh) John Carpenters take on the movie was better compared to the one in which Campbell created. Which of course stays true to the novella.

Lost Animals: Extinction and the Photographic Record (Found on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles)
by Errol Fuller

As a kid I've always enjoyed Dinosaurs, prehistoric animals and extinct species. So when this book was given to me at Christmas, I couldn't put it down. What really gets to me is the fact that the animals in this book are recently extinct, which is not only scary it's also sobering. The photographs are chilling and for me give off the foreboding feeling of who or what is the next beloved species to go extinct. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys books on endangered or extinct animals.

CTRL ALT Revolt! A book with a title like that, in which the theme is AI vs humans and is both digital and on the cheap deserves at least a mention.

Available at Amazon.
