      Three Kingdoms (A historical novel of China)
      Attributed to Luo Guanzhong, tranlated by Moss Roberts
      It's good so far, but the combination of 900+ large trade paperback small print pages and the fact that it's jam-packed with Chinese history make it slow going.

      Science fiction by david weber ...can't remember which one of the Honor Harrington novels...

      I read that if you were an American that had finished one book this year you were one out of a hundred...the study was done for the year 2003....sad, just plain sad.

      last nonfiction book that I read was The Total Money Makeover,
      it was very good commonsense advice that is not commonly followed

      Can you describe a little more of what part of the Chinese history this deals with? I read a bunch of historial novels so this may be right up my alley.

      I started to read Cryptonomicon four days before my classes started up again in September. My workload is so brutal that I've put it aside until Christmas.

      Paranoia by Joseph Finder. A semi-farcical corporate thriller. A fun fast read.

      This is a humorous and auto-biographical story of life in Canada's North. I don't often read Canadian literature and this book, so far, has been a great and worthy read.
