I've never read "Atlas Shrugged", if memory serves, but I read Rand's "The Fountainhead" and "Anthem" waaay back in High School English. Deep stuff.

I've read "Rise and Fall..." though, and that's excellent; a thorough examination of Hitler's machinations, some of which comes straight from men that were close to his inner circle. You could stop a bullet with this book, though.

Himmler's a great read so far.

I downloaded Never Let Me Go off iTunes and am enjoying it (as much as you can "enjoy" a story like this). I usually want to read the book after watching the movie so I don't unfairly compare the two but I wish I read this book first.

The Man Who Would Be King (1888), by Rudyard Kipling. It's actually a novella, so I finished it in one evening. Pretty good story, especially having read up on the historical aspects of it. Now to rent the movie.

Ok, reading Catching fire first, and then going to John Carter of Mars's first book, Princess of Mars.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

The Insidious Dr. Fu Manchu (1913), by Sax Rohmer

This is the first novel in the Fu Manchu series. Yet another public domain audiobook from Librivox, available in free podcasts through iTunes.

Burroughs Mars work is amazing. He did an incredible job of world building. Not Tolkien or Herbert, but still a very rich tapestry.

I'm about to reread George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four" yet again. My favorite book of all time.
