Metaphorguy: I just finished a book called Cloning: Who's Still Afraid? by Pence. Great insight into the politics of cloning and stem cell research.
maugan: First off, I'm impressed that the 'Books' forum seems to be more active than the 'Sports' one, that's not usually the case.
As for books one is currently reading, I'm currently re-reading all the Dune novels, up to Heretics of Dune at the moment and I love it!

Juba_The_Sniper: Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger (Penguin Modern Classics)
Jünger describes his experiences in the trenches in a very detached, unemotional matter. Events, even of the most gruesome sort, are described 'as he witnessed them' as if he was there as a neutral, impartial observer instead of a participant. He neither romanticises nor offers any apology for killing allied forces (here described as 'the enemy' ) He was a soldier, killing other soldiers was his duty.
oh_good_laughs: Finished the Old Kingdom Trilogy.. AWESOME. About to start another series called 'The Name of the Wind'.
ColonelKusanagi: finishing Firestarter and then working my way back thru Wheel of time in preparation for the big finale
