Books, etc. - part 2

So, those stacks of 58 books that were waiting to be read?

I've just finished one of them. Specifically, Crescent Dawn by Clive Cussler.

I was going to read his Poseidon's Arrow next, but having read three Cusslers in a row, I feel slightly Cusslered out (he has certain stylistic touches and turns of phrase that can get a bit wearing in just one book, and I've harped on about his lack of credible dialogue before - either it's improving now his son's collaborating with him, or I'm just getting used to it, but it's still not fantastic). So instead, on to Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London next.

But anyway, completing Crescent Dawn = definitely achievement unlocked. Yay!!!

The poll to see what I should watch next is still open, should you care to vote or make any suggestions, but at the moment series 1 of Jeeves and Wooster is the winner by a nose, so as it's also only five episodes long, that's what I've decided to go for. After that, though, could be up to you! :-)
