“I’m reading “The Bourne Identity,” by Robert Ludlum. It’s the first book in his Bourne series. I really enjoyed the movies, but the books give a lot more background about who he is.”

Freakonomics,’ by Steven D. Levitt. The author takes economic and statistical theories and apply them to things that they normally wouldn’t be applied to. I thought it was really good.”

Haunted,’ by Chuck Palahniuk. It’s about a group of writers who sequester themselves until they finish writing their novels, and they conspire together to maim each other in order to have a better story to sell about their experience.”

Besides historical fiction, my favourite reading material has always been crime novels and especially British crime novels. One of my favourite authors is Ian Rankin and his stories of his Edinburgh Detective Inspector John Rebus are the best. Reading, at the moment, The Naming of the Dead. Action takes place in July 2005 during the G8 summit meeting of world leaders in Perthside, Scotland. Lot of demonstrations that turned nasty. Bombing in the London underground also. Good page turner of a novel.

still reading: "voyage: 1896 ..." by that actor dude sturling hayden. the book is holding my interest for the actual portions regarding the windjammer under sail, but some of it is just obviously written by an actor dude.
