I'm waiting for the 10th anniversary edition of American Gods, with extra material that had originally been edited.

Guards! Guards! (paperback) and Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse (Kindle)
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Finished the umpteenth reread of Feet of Clay......love that book! Now embarking on The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith. You would almost know it's JK Rowling without being told since she is so good at scene setting and character description. Enjoying it so far.

I love Feet of Clay as well.

I'm reading Raising Steam, at last.

Read The Making of Return of the Jedi (the recent Rinzler version), and read the fourth and final (to date) dead tree edition of Gunnerkrigg Court.

Recently, I read a library copy of The Fat Duck Cookbook. Very enjoyable and interesting, though I daresay the scientific essays in the back might put some off (not me). I intend to buy it when I have enough money to spare.

Reading Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson (just to be different to everyone reading the other Sanderson book at the moment).
Once I've finished that I'm moving on to Traitors Blade by Sebastian De Castell.

Finished reading the third (second for me to read) Mervyn Stone book, Cursed Among Sequels. Lacked a certain je ne sais quois from the original, but made up for it with the satire.

I've started re-reading Ju-On and I'm finding it a easer read the second time round

I am! Love the story and a few lines have made me laugh out loud. I know I'm missing the meaning of some stuff though. What's a nonce?

Its an English slang word for a paedophile. Not sure of the origins but heard enough English use it to know the gist of it.
The book is great but has a major kick in the teeth in it.
Again Enjoy :D
