Lithos - read Pratchett's GOING POSTAL last month. A quick holiday week read that filled me with fun & laughter. Sarcasm wins out.
JPOD - found this interesting when I read it a few years back. Lots of LOLs but overall, not as good as I thought it would be!
Last week I fianlly finished Stephenson's REAMDE, switching back to the hardback for the last 100 pages. Odd thing, hitting 90% on the Kindle and not knowing exactly how many 'pages' are left to go! Anyways, a good, sprawling tale, albiet on one timeline. Interesting characters fighting out a good vs evil modern day reality + virtual reality. It worked for me and I can't wait for his next novel ...as there could surely be follow ups / spin offs from said story :-))
