    Are you planning to chew through all 50+? Way to get really well-read (Western canon).

    Pratchett is the best for humor; too bad about the Alzheimer's, though he's making the best use of himself for now. Great stuff. And Hawking is fascinating.

    I just finished "The Truth of Valor," #4 in the Confederation series by Tanya Huff. Good military sf. And I'm about to re-read the two Jade d'Arcy books by Stephen Goldin. I read a lot of genre (sf, mystery) and very little general fiction.

    On a note related to collecting martial arts non-fiction, there's a guy here in Asheville who trained at a studio down the street from my bookstore. He became a good customer, picked my brains, and then started dealing in MA books only and online only. He now owns a gymnastics training business. I need to get back in touch with him (as soon as I remember his name).

    I plan too, I've got two copies of the classics. One is a first edition and the other I think is from the 70s. Its a daunting task to try and get thru all of them but its still probably some of the most worth while reading one can do. I may send "The Wealth of Nations" to Congress when I'm done.

    You really think Congress will understand Smith's theories? Well, okay, give it a try.

    The last week or two, I've become aware of Sean Carroll via Youtube... If you're into Hawking, you will either love or hate this guy.

    Has anybody read Neil Stephenson's new book "Reamde"? It's getting great reviews. I loved his "Snow Crash" and recently re-read it. It's quite impressive the way the technology holds up for a book written over 20 ;years ago. Lots of people I know are getting into massive multiplayer games on the web, which his characters pretty much lived in.

    I read Holes on holiday.
    Great story, and only took a day (by the pool, drinking beer)
    The last MA book I read was 'Sudden Violence'

    The Dune books don't have a whole lot of fight scenes in them, but the ones that are there are badass as hell. The fate of all mankind coming down to a knife-fight between teenagers? Epic.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
