    I'm currently reading Vocabulum; or, The Rogue's Lexicon by George W. Matsell. It's fascinating to read gangster slang of the 1840s. Who would have thought that immigrant Irish antisocials and their gutter talk would influence our use of the English language to a great extent. The fact that the book was first published from the time adds to its authenticity and myth.

    My current reads are Angels And Demons by Dan Brown (not my cup of tea, but something about Illuminati just hooked me up. Plus it was with a big discount) and Witch Hammer (Really hard and kind of boring but witch burning...)

    Just finished reading "Kidnapped" which is about Australia's first known kidnapping of a child for ransom. Written by Mark Tedeschi QC.

    I finished reading an advance copy of the Vince Flynn / Kyle Mills thriller Enemy of the State.

    I'm now reading the Ace Atkins thriller The Fallen.

    And I just received three new advance copies of books that I'll be doing reviews for.

    I just finished Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. I thought it was actually pretty good.
    Currently reading Star Wars: Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp. Only a few chapters in, but really enjoying it. Need to find more time to read it.
