Just finished King John by Shakespeare.

Jack Reacher #25. A great read so far. This is one of Lee Child's last input into the series, and iirc his brother Andrew, who cowrote this with LC, is taking over the series - eventually.

Attack Surface by Cory Doctorow. In fact I read the first two books (and short story Force Multiplier) before starting Attack Surface.

Huntingtower by John Buchan. (Author of The Thirty-Nine Steps.) It's an excellent "thriller", written shortly after the First World War.

Has anyone here read The Thirty-Nine Steps or any of the other Richard Hannay novels? They are all superb.

I am reading and re-reading the sequel to Fall Planet, scouting out errors and inconsistencies. By the time I finish doing that over and over I do not want to read the story anymore. HaHaHa!

My Beta Testers are bugging me to get this out, so...
