I just finished Casino Royale last night. I got a bunch of other James Bond books on a Kindle deal a while ago and think I may try to read through them.

Currently reading "The Ether Zone: U.S. Army Special Forces Detachment B-52, Project Delta " by Ray Morris. Interesting book about the creation and combat operations of Project Delta in Vietnam, with many stories told by veterans. As per reviews on Amazon, there's some facts not recounted right in the book, but I haven't notice anyhing until now.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Smiley's People by John le Carr. I will have to read Carr's novels again to get a better appreciation of his writing style as well as the "Britishisms," but at this point I am in love with his take on cold war spying.

Catch-22!

I have to say I'm not really enjoying it though. I've started to skim read and skip pages, but I've only got about 1/4 left to go so I may as well finish. I've laughed a couple of times and it has been thought provoking to an extent, but I just feel it doesn't go anywhere. Maybe that's the point, I dunno.

Just finished Roadside Picnic and loved it.

Started Richard Morris: The Biography of Leonard Cheshire

So far a very good read, engaging, well written, well researched it seems. Portrayals stand out on each page offering vivid images in my mind. Reads a bit like literature, the subject being a fascinating man.
