Re: What Are You Reading Right Now?

Partially reread The Third Twin by Ken Follett yesterday. (the beginning, the end and the main events to get the story; might have been half of the pages)
Interesting topic but it was much better in my memory, now i found it very B-action-movie like.

Previous read was Neuromancer by William Gibson last week.
The actual story was rather strange (a little pointless at the end) but the future he described is still fascinating, and obviously inspired many (maybe even reality).
Ordered the sequels directly.

The pricing of digital books is still too high. Kindles Count Zero would only have been cheaper if /$ would reach again 1,6 rate (and Mona Lisa Overdrive would not be available at all).
For environmental reasons i would happily change my reading to digital, but as long as the offer is at it is i refuse to pay effectively more for getting no book in my hand.
Kindle or Nook or Oyo or Sony PRS or ... have to work on the terms a little more.
