"Bedlam: London and its Mad" by Catherine Arnold
"Aristocrats: Power, Grace & Decadence" by Lawrence James. (Interesting but oh god the number of unsupported assumptive leaps and biases. CITATION NEEDED. )
"I Shall Wear Midnight" by Terry Pratchett. (Liked it, though less well put together than the earlier Tiffany Aching books.)
I seem to be on a social history kick of late. Still got some new books to start!

I'd be a card-carrying sensotard, but I can't find the goddamn card.
In light of the series Game of Thrones, A song of ice and fire are the books I am currently reading.
But heh, when I find the time to read in them, I waltz through it, sometimes unable to stop until it's like 6am and I'm like, ok, I should go to sleep, work in two hours... But then it takes like a month or two before I feel like reading again.
I'm in the third book now after three reading sessions. Although I sort of skipped parts of the first book or went over parts globally reading, as a lot I already knew from the first season.
Excluding the ones I read because I have to:
Eike Batista's biography (the richest Brazilian)
Art of War (re-read)
The Selfish Gene
