Finished A Dance with Dragons Part 2 this morning. Some great twists towards the end. Can't wait for the next installment!

Weird War One, worth it for the discovery that tanks were apparently sometimes referred to as 'wibble-wobbles'. That's the asking price made worth it right there.

Just finishing book 3 of the Witcher books by Andrzej Zapkowski. Not bad but they all feel like collections of short stories more than cohesive books!

Now onto Book 4 of the Alex Hunter series by Greig Beck :)

Know Your Enemy: Rage Against The Machine biography by Joel McIver.

Didn't like it as it felt rushed and I didn't like the writing style which was a surprise as I read his book on Metallica which I couldn't put down at the time.
