I've just finished "The Ark", book 1 of the Children of a Dead Earth series (rather good for a freebie e-book).

Just about to start on Peter F. Hamilton's latest epic, "Salvation" having received a physical hardback for Christmas. I'm really looking forward to this - and there is a new Alastair Reynolds due out in January which I have been waiting for - the sequel to "Revenger" which was a great return to form for Reynolds.

"Brexit and Ireland" by the Irish Times journalist David Connolly. Early days but it appears to be very comprehensive
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

I'm currently near the end of Hamilton's Salvation - which is terrific, and in the car, I am listening to the audio book of Alastair Reynolds "Revenger" as a warm up to "Shadow Captain" to refresh my memory.

Just started on Alastair Reynolds "Shadow Captain", sequel to "Revenger".

btw, Peter F. Hamilton's "Salvation" was a terrific start to his new set of books. I'm now very much looking forward to "Salvation Lost".

Started in Cixin Liu's The Three Body Problem. Book 1 of a fascinating Chinese Sci-Fi trilogy (together with The Dark Forest and Death's End it forms Remembrance of Earth's Past).

I've just finished Hack Attack by Nick Davies.

It's the full story of the phone hacking scandal that brought down The News Of The World by the journalist that originally broke the story in The Guardian. Absolutely shocking. The (non) activity of the Metropolitan Police and the Press Complaints Commission allowed it to continue for far longer than it should've. They were all terrified of putting themselves into Newscorp's line of fire.

Just about to start Raising Steam, the 40th Discworld novel.

Made a book purchase for the second time in about 5 years (Geddy's BBBoB the other one) - and, like the arrival of late buses, two at once:
