Stuart (stuartellis) | 28 comments I keep thinking about starting in on the Vorkosigan series, and I'm probably going to pick another Margery Allingham novel. Allingham's books are like a cross between Agatha Christie and Jeeves & Wooster - good fun and a very easy read.

Cicero | 48 comments I would also like to hear anything about "2666" from anyone who has read it.

I've never read a lot of sci fi, but you all have excellent taste, so hopefully I'm converted!

Kate, let me know what you think of 2666. I've been hearing a lot about it and would love to pick it up.

Jeffrey Jelmeland (Geoffrie) | 16 comments Aside from Watchmen, my primary focus this month is on the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. I am also sampling Starship: Mutiny by Mike Resnick to see if that series is one that I want to get into.

I also need to choose a classic to read for the month. I'd like to tackle Bleak House, but probably won't have time, so will probably read Rebecca. I've been wanting to read that one for a long time.

Jon (jonmoss) | 894 comments Currently listening to these audio books while traveling and commuting:

Gilead A Novel by Marilynne Robinson - hope to get back to this audio book this week
Revolutionary Characters What Made the Founders Different by Gordon S. Wood - more than half finished
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell - finished 2/8/2009

I also have the audio book for The Road which I will start after finishing the Sparrow. I scrapped this and returned it to the library unread/unlistened to.

I started reading (but may not finish):

The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte - decided to back burner this.

I will probably read The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold (started reading 2/3/2009; finished 2/11/2009) as well as The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi.

After that, if there's any time left in February, I will tackling my mooched book stack.
