I go through phases where I read a whole lot of books one after the other and then I won't read a single book for like six months. Right now I'm in a reading phase so I was curious as to the literary habits of my fellow :sf members. At the moment I'm reading Dan Brown's latest thriller, Deception Point, which very much a typical Brown novel full of political machinations and conspiring baddies. I also acknowledge that Brown's novels aren't of the highest quality but I enjoy them nonetheless. I admit this of my own free will and as the holder of a master's degree in English Literature. So what are you guys and gals reading at the moment?
