Another Random Question

Okay, I've really enjoyed reading what you guys have read the most times over, so I'm following it up with another question.

What are you reading now?

I've got a couple of books I'm in the middle of including Daniel Silva, Tom Clancy and (fine, I'll admit it) Charlaine Harris, but mainly I'm focusing on George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings, which is the follow up to Game of Thrones.

Don't worry, I'll get back to criminal law and CJC stuff as soon as I can think of something worth writing about.

Right now I have The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt (about the Venice Opera House fire), Sanctuary by William Faulkner (a great read) and Riptide by Cindy Gerard (mystery thriller) all on hold while I am reading the Family Code, Title 5 The Parent Child Relationship and the Suit Affecting the Parent Child Relationship figuring out how to draw up a motion. Break time over.

I too have been on the Game of Thrones Kick, but interspersing them with Everyday Drinking, by Kingsley Amis, and the tremendous The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, by David Mitchell--which takes historical fiction to an artisitic level that rivals Patrick O'Brian's novels.

Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle (three books), Ida Tarbell's History of the Standard Oil Company, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, and some other classics.

The Kindle is great, especially with all the free versions of great literature available.

I'm inclined to lie and say I'm reading "The Road" or some other intellectual book- but I'm a bad liar. I just finished "Mini Shopaholic"and started "I Totally Meant To Do That" and every trash imagine I can find- it's a long weekend at the ranch...

Reading Brad Thor's "Full Black." His Scott Harvath books are good thrillers, you'd enjoy him if you don't already read him. Just finished the Daniel Silva, another outstanding effort from him.

I'm reading Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom," which I chose because, one I've heard its a great book, and two, he was the only author to tell Oprah to take a hike when she asked if she could include his novel on her reading list. I found it funny that the book was also on President Obama's 2011 reading list, as in he read it in 2011. I would love to sit down with him and discuss Patty.

I'm also reading A Clash of Kings.

I have been reading A Clash of Kings for about a month. I've put it down many times and read other books because I am distreacted by the timeline, or lack thereof. I bought the box set and I read Game of Thrones with no issues. Clash of Kings simply hasn't had the same spark. I'm hoping buying the box set wasn't a waste.

I'm about ten chapters into Clash of Kings, and I really like it. Several people told me that it started off really slowly and got better, but I'm liking the character development.

There is a spoilers-free website that shows the casting of some of the new characters that I like jumping to when someone is introduced.
