I just finished re-reading the second book in the "Ishmael" trilogy, The Story of B. PM me if you decide you want to borrow any of his other stuff after you finish Ishmael. I have most of them.

And I have Good Meat on my coffee table as a permanent fixture.
I just heard about rammed earth yesterday and would LOVE to experiment with that.

Next on my list is:
The Way of the Shaman by Michael Harner (an initiation into shamanism as teached by south american tribes)
Pharmako/Gnosis - A supposedly interesting poetic take on psychedelics both natural and manmade
Tatoooedmoehler: is 'In the Name of the Wind' any good? Really looking for new good fantasy but im abit tired of the gritty low-fantasy stuff like George RR Martin and co. Really want something Tolkienesque atm.

Still reading Tristram Shandy. Tristram is still not born. Dr. Slop has got his bag and gone to be man-midwife to Mrs. Shandy achild-bed and Mr. Shandy and Uncle Toby are discussing the origin of ideas, even though uncle Toby is only interested in battles and fortifications. Am still getting odd looks on the train when I burst out laughing.
the thing that is interesting about the straw bale stuff is that it is apparently much easier as DIY project. Well, maybe just the smaller ones houses.

A Desert Oasis
I'm reading SACRE BLEU by Christopher Moore and DUST AND DECAY by Jonathan Maberry.
By the Sword: Gladiators, Musketeers, Duelists, Samurai, Swashbucklers and Points of Honour
... a potted history of fighting with a sword. I'm somewhere at the end of the 1500s at the moment, my favourite era of street gangs, thuggery and beating them away with a sidearm.
Feet in the Clouds: A Tale of Fell-Running and Obsession
... although not a competitive runner, getting into the hills and just running through whatever the weather throws at me is my addiction. Covered in mud, soaked to the skin and grinning like an idiot
The Tao of Jeet Kune Do
Primal Body, Primal Mind
The Book of Five Rings is sitting in my bag waiting for me to crack it open, but I'm almost done with PBPM and I don't want to have four going at once.
And now I'm also reading CONVICT CONDITIONING. So far, it's utterly fascinating.
'The Wind Up Bird Chronicle' amongst my all time geatest reads. I also have 'The Mother Tongue' waiting on the shelf amidst dozens of books I want to read. Second hand book shops are an addiction. I'm reading 'In Service of Clouds' by Delia Falconer, it's surprisingly touching. And started yesterday Gary Taubes 'Why we get fat and what to do about it'.
