    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 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.

    014.....Stephanie Plum, Book 01: One For The Money by Janet Evanovich
    015.....Stephanie Plum, Book 02: Two For The Dough by Janet Evanovich
    016.....The Hollows, Book 10: A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison

    018.....In Death, Book 02: Glory In Death by Nora Roberts
    019.....The Draco Tavern by Larry Niven
    020.....Me Of Little Faith by Lewis Black
    021.....Ringworld, Book 03: The Ringworld Throne by Larry Niven

    026.....John Rain, Book 05: The Last Assassin by Barry Eisler
    027.....John Rain, Book 06: Requiem For An Assassin by Barry Eisler


    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.
