Third in a series from author Chris Wooding chronicling the adventures of the crew of the spaceship Ketty Jay. As with the previous books, this is very much in the style of Firefly and is a very good read.

I have to get these books! If for nothing else I have met the artist who does the covers, Stephan Martiniere, several times and he is very nice guy! And does great work to boot!

Thinking, Fast and Slow
Definitely not a "fun" read but is full of great information about how your mind works when it comes to making decisions.

REading the Dune series. Didn't like it as a teen. The first 60 or so pages of the first book was boring as hell then it starts to pick up.

After watching the show Flash Forward on ABC a number of years ago and being completely bummed that it was cancelled, I just saw in watching it with my kids that it was based on a book by the same name by Robert Sawyer (guess I should have paid attention to the credits the first time around). I was hoping to to get closure on the show by reading the book to see how it would have ended. The book was a disappointment. Now I wish I would have left well enough alone.
Just started reading 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz

House Of Leaves - I don't even know where to start with talking about this book. It was heavy, in every way you can think of to describe a book. I really, really enjoyed it and even though I finished it weeks ago, it's stuck with me. I want to read it again, but don't really know when I'll have that much time to invest in a second reading.
Cruddy - A short, quick read and a really good one. Roberta is a poor, ugly girl with an abusive stepmother and an insane, murderous father who taught her how to shoot and use a knife, drink booze with the best of them. It's sad, funny and really ****ed up. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
