    As I tie off my latest project, which is now in preorder, it leads me to wonder what my fellow CF-ers read?

    Right now, I'm reading the second Glass Throne book http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...2&tag=certforucouk-21&linkId=77SYOJ6K3RIUVPYY
    And this light-hearted read http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bitcoin-Big...28436016&sr=8-1&keywords=the+bitcoin+big+bang

    Plus some Azure technotes and basic IT stuff, as well as my own projects.

    I just purchased the first of Mo Hayder's - Jack Caffery series books 'Birdman'. Last year I got hooked on Jo Nesbo - Harry Hole series and was recommended this author by a friend. I have yet to start it due to work commitments but as soon as it's opened I'm sure it will be a tough one to put down.

    i've just finished Joe Abercrombie's "Half a King", which after a dubious start I thought was very good. Started to read the Game of Thrones series again, just started book 2, "Clash of Kings".

    After that I shall read a certain Legacy of Darkness (no apologies for the advert) which I've been very remiss in reading.

    Embarrassed to say nothing at the moment although I've not been too well lately, possibly eye stress so it's been tough reading anything for a great length of time.

    So I am going through one of my SciFi periods at the moment. I may switch back to my thriller period again shortly.

    I have just finished reading http://www.amazon.co.uk/Terms-Enlis...F8&qid=1428485028&sr=1-4&keywords=marko+kloos and have book two lined up.

    I have also just finished http://www.amazon.co.uk/Death-World...F8&qid=1428485069&sr=1-1&keywords=death+world which is the 5th in a series of books.

    I am also reading some VMware documents, preparing for my VCP-NV exam, followed shortly by either my VCP6-Cloud or VCAP-DCA (which ever I decide to do).

    I should also add... Kindle Unlimited, best thing I did in a long time.

    Current reading through Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series again. I read upto about book 7 or 8 before he passed and never finished the rest, that was probably a decade ago. Thought I'd read from book one again to refresh myself, thoroughly enjoying them again.

    I'm reading "Engines of war" at the moment really enjoying it but thats no surprise considering my avatar. I'm probably going to read "the forever war" again afterwards for the umpteenth time which is one of my favourite books along with "the lost fleet" series.

    Them : Adventures With Extremists by Jon Ronson
    "Guardian journalist Jon Ronson's Them began as a book about different kinds of extremists, but after Jon had got to know some of them - Islamic fundamentalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen - he found that they had one oddly similar belief: that a tiny, shadowy elite rule the world from a secret room.
    In Them, Jon sets out, with the help of the extremists, to locate that room. The journey is as creepy as it is comic, and along the way Jon is chased by men in dark glasses, unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, and witnesses international CEOs and politicians participate in a bizarre pagan ritual in the forests of northern California."

    A good mixture here. AJ - your taste in fantasy is excellent ;)

    I enjoyed the Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. I might have to check that one out.

    One of the best and most indepth books I have read is Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.

    I also really enjoyed The Lovely Bones.

    Neither book was my usual choice of books but both were really gripping (especially Perfume which really described how Paris in those days would look \ smell).
