    To actually answer the question, I'm reading Amazon.com: Paradoxes of Rationality and Cooperation: Prisoner's Dilemma and Newcomb's Problem (9780774802154): Richmond Campbell, Lanning Sowden: Books . It fuckin rocks :)

    Also Civilized Warring by Pete Cunninham, but I don't think that counts/

    I would highly recommend anything by China Miéville for the sci-fi/fantasy types.

    Just finished Perdido Street Station, kind of like Terry Pratchett with fewer jokes, better research and a lot more balls.

    Am currently reading London Orbital: Amazon.co.uk: Iain Sinclair: Books which is kind of a visionary journey round the M25. It is dense and slightly self-absorbed, but very rewarding.

    Re-reading "A Tour of the Calculus," by David Berlinski. I would describe it as a romantic and intrguing narrative on the history of modern mathematics. Plus, it makes excellent put-your-kids-to-sleep material; I've been reading a chapter a night to my daughters in a faux-British accent.

    Most books sound better when read with a British accent.

    As an aside, an interesting experiment is to try reading Douglas Adams in anything but a British accent.

    i haven't actually read a book for about 6 months, but i'm listening to audio books during my commute. i find it a lot more relaxing than listening to music or talk radio.
    now if i get stuck in traffic i don't care because i get to listen to another chapter.

    i've just finished all the terry pratchet guards books and i've just started on stephen king's Dark Tower.

    I'm reading this little book you might have heard of.
    It's called Dracula by some Bram Stoker guy. It's pretty nice so far, but I've got a feeling that weird count is up to no good, I'm not sure he's human.

    I'll let you know if it's good when I finish it.


    Also, I'm reading a hell of a lot of boring ass financial data, that **** I don't recommend.

    I'm working on The Hero With A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell. I've tried to read it several times and I get sidetracked half way through and have to start over. Anyway, it's a study of old hero tales from cultures around the world that tries to figure why it is that hero stories in separate cultures have the same details. It's pretty interesting if you're into that kind of stuff.
