    I've been in a Charles Dickens phase. Right now I'm reading A Tale Of Two Cities, but I've recently finished several others I'd never read. Next is 1984, George Orwell, which I haven't read since I was forced to in High School.

    Darkly Dreaming Dexter is what I'm currently reading.

    I just finished a series of short stories called Wool that were pretty interesting.
