What should i read next? I'm between books. Yes, i know i should be working, but if i read nothing but scientific papers all the time my brain will collapse.

I finished reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield a few weeks ago (it was fun, by the way) and I've been in book limbo ever since. It's not a good place to be. My supply of back issues of The New Yorker is dwindling...

Help! I'm looking for something light enough to be restful but substantive enough to hold my interest and well written enough not to annoy me completely. Suggestions?

I'm reading Century Rain by Alastair Reynolds at the recommendation of Boysquid. It has alternate history (Paris in 1960 if WWII hadn't happened) and spaceships. How could you go wrong?

The Kushiel books by J. Carey if you haven't read them already. Oh, and anything by Charles De Lint set in Newford.

Funny, i was just saying that i'd re-read the Kushiel books if i couldn't find anything else. But there are so many books out there, i've decided i should spend less time re-reading. Besides, i'm not really looking for pure fantasy right now, for some reason.

The alternate history sounds cool -- i need to go to the bookstore now!
