Wednesday reading

I have taken a bit of a reading holiday over the last week - I went to Budapest on Thursday, came back Friday, was rather unwell on Saturday (a lingering minor but irritating infection which is only now starting to clear up), quit the old job on Monday and have been enjoying temporary unemployment yesterday and today in advance of starting the new job on Monday. This means that my usual reading lists haven't actually moved since last Wednesday, though I did read one True Confession for brain candy and have started another book related to New Work which I am coding for now. Normal service will be resumed with another trip to Central Europe over the weekend followed by a return to the Brussels commute on Monday.

On the other hand I'm now up to date with Big Finish audios, I think.

Wool, by Hugh Howey
Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
The Room with No Doors, by Kate Orman
Up the Walls of the World, by James Tiptree

Last books finished
Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, by Jillian Lauren

Last week's audios
The Reesinger Process, by Justin Richards
The Screaming Skull, by Jonathan Morris
Second Sight, by Nick Wallace and Justin Richards (actually listened to this twice, because my player irritatingly ran it immediately after the first of the series of four stories)
Domain of the Voord, by Andrew Smith

Next books
Edward Gibbon and Empire, ed. Rosamond McKitterick
Angela's Ashes, by Frank McCourt
Camera Obscura, by Lloyd Rose
