A Three-fer! I haven't updated for a while.
1)The Hunting Wind
by Steve Hamilton
by Karen Traviss
3) A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens Gutenberg version
Fun reading - a lot of it intense. Particularly the finally completed Matriarch, not to mention the complicated back and forth of the Hamilton book. All enjoyable.
The Christmas Carol was fun, both because it was certainly seasonable, but also because I used my new nano to read it. How? By using "ipodlibrary" which lets you transfer text documents to an iPod. Very cool. And Dickens never grows old.
