Hey, =Tamar, I've been meaning to read Captain Vorpatril's Alliance. I'm only a quarter of the way through it, though.
Anyway, I've managed to read quite a few things since I last posted in this thread. On the manga front, I have read the first seven volumes of Yu-Gi-Oh!, before it degenerated into that BS about card games, as well as the first few volumes of a series that I liked from the get-go, Fullmetal Alchemist.
On the graphic novels front, I have finished reading the highly disturbing Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, as well as the latest (and mildly disappointing) volume of the excellent series The Unwritten.
Most of what I have read in more substantial works are Doctor Who novels, although there have been some excellent ones: Festival of Death by Jonathan Morris, Dreams of Empire by Justin Richards, and the very latest release, Harvest of Time by noted science fiction author Alastair Reynolds. Oh, and I read a novel by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden called Joe Golem and the Drowning City.
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
