    I'm currently reading The Saga of Burnt Njal for a research paper, though so far I'm enjoying it for the most part. For leisure I'm reading selections of Japanese poetry from the Kokinshu.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. Watched the movie when it came out, but I think the book is shaping up to be better.

    I don't know how to read one book at a time.

    The Tide Knot by Helen Dunmore.

    It's a young adult book, so it's a bit childish in the writing, but it's got a good image of Merfolk and how they might see humans and interact with them. It's the second in the series, a good read if you like Mermaids.

    I stopped at chapter 32 for the Honor Harrington book. Will read the last few chapters and start the next book when it comes out. Apparently he wrote book 13 as one book, but the publisher told him to split it into two. I've read his forums that chapter 32 is a good place to stop and wait on book 14, Shadow Of Freedom.

    Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. It took me a while to get through the first three books. So far, I'm sufficiently engaged.
