    Here's the thread where you mention what non-SF/F books you're currently reading.

    I have begun reading Beyond Biocentrism by R. Lanza, MD. I'm loving being shaken like a pair of maracas with his challenging postulates.

    Right now I've picked up Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity. Never read the book before but I did like the movie. Hopefully the book will be better!

    I have been reading for the last week a historical non-fiction book called (my translation) Empire-phobia: Rome, Russia, The United States and The Spanish Empire. Fascinating but it requires small daily doses to absorb all the information as it deserves.

    Think I'll be picking up a Victorian era authoress this weekend whom I've been meaning to read for a long while. Elizabeth Gaskell, and I'll be starting her third novel, North and South, which is supposed to be one of the better industrial/social novels of the time (Dickens thought so...he printed it in his magazine).

    This is a fascinating read about underground, pernicious fly-tiers:

    Ñam, ñam, love bread. I'm lazy and I have a bread machine that I set to start baking in the early hours so the bread is ready for breakfast. Divine!

    I finished the original Bourne trilogy by Robert Ludlum. I can't believe how good these were! I used to like the movies, and I still do, but now I think the director should have called it something else, not The Bourne Identity. There's hardly anything from the book. This trilogy is seriously fricking awesome! Action-packed, lots of mystery, tons of spy stuff way better than the movies. I loved it!

    And now I'm reading King Rat by James Clavell. It's WWII historical fiction that takes place in a Chinese prison camp with international prisoners. I'm about 70 pages in and so far it's turning out to be seriously good.
