I'm reading A Column of Fire by Ken Follett, the third installment of his 'Cathedrals' series. This one isn't terrible but he's lost a lot of oomph from the previous two. He was never the best writer but he could make you really hate a character, and the villains in ACoF are just... meh. On the other side, I'm a writer and my first paperback book will be out in January. Very excited.
