The Burning Land

The Burning Land - Bernard Cornwell I love this whole series, but I'm ready for Uhtred to finally make his move for his ancestral home. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of bloody (but very enjoyable) hacking through Viking and Saxon warriors, and a change of woman every few books or so. Still, the characters are well-drawn and the period details are so convincing, I'll keep at it as long as Cornwell is willing.

Outliers: The Story of Success

Outliers: The Story of Success - Malcolm Gladwell This was incredibly enjoyable and informative. I love this kind of general knowledge-stuff. At the same time, there was a lot of food for thought about how our society is under-utilizing many of its talented people.
