Not a book, per se, but I'm listening to an audio lecture course about war and peace in Europe from 1500-2000.

Andrew and Ollie - just finished it. I know I will pay for staying up past midnight two nights in a row, but… oh well :D Absolutely loved it (despite what I thought was a rather anti-climatic ending). At least I only have to walk across the room to the bookshelf and grab the next part of the story to continue the adventure!

So I guess the next book on my list is "The Subtle Knife".

I thought the climax of the book with Lyra pretending to be a daemon to trick the bear was brilliant!

Nearly finished Echo Burning by Lee Child. Another great Jack Reacher thriller.

I knew this would happen, mostly because it happened to me . . . more than once.

But that isn't how it ends. It ends with Lyra going over a bridge to another dimension.

I have to remember that white-text-to-hide-spoilers thing :D

I seriously began to wish I had a daemon of my own :P

It does come in handy.

If I had a Daemon it's be . . . well, a picture's worth a thousand, right.

Ah, yes, I remember. Agreed it isn't really a 'closed' ending, but it makes you want to read the next book!

I'm reading The Noise Within by Ian Whates. I've met Ian online a couple of times and he knows his stuff so I'm expecting good things.

So far … the first one that comes to mind is Pantalaimon :) After that, Iorek Byrnison. My least favourite is Mrs Coulter's daemon (holy crap that thing gives me the creeps!).

Who is/are yours?
