It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.
GoodReads says I'm behind three books...better pick up the pace!
Books Read (click on titles for review): 
The Puzzle of the Silver Persian by Stuart Palmer
Slippage by Harlan Ellison
Currently Reading: 
The Web Between the Worlds by Charles Sheffield: Rob Merlin was the best engineer who had ever lived. That was why "The King of Space" had to have him for the most spectacular construction project ever -- even though Rob was a potentially fatal threat to his power...

Thus begins a breakthrough novel by the former President of the American Astronautical Society, about an idea whose time has come: a shimmering bridge between Earth and space that mankind will climb to the stars. Sound like fantasy? The concept had been in the literature of physics for over three decades, but only a writer with the scientific background of a Sheffield or a Clarke could bring the idea to life.
Books that spark my interest:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Four Lost Ladies by Stuart Palmer
Zima Blue & Other Stories by Alastair Reynolds
Ashenden by Elizabeth Wilhide
