too busy reading to be blogging!

And Then There Were None Agatha Christie

Ten people, randomly selected, trapped on an island off the English coast, all accussed of a murder. A murder they were involved in, but didn't have evidence, a murder they could never be convicted off...

In every room, a nursery rhyme, Ten Little Indians, that details how each of hte ten will fall...

They're the only ones on the island. One of them won't be killed. One of them is doing the killing, but which one?

This Agatha Christie classic helped define a genre. She gets into their heads as they're slowly driven insane with waiting who will be next... and can they be saved?

I, Robot Isaac Asimov

Another classic in a genre I normally don't read. Asimov ties short stories together tracing the rise of robots in the earth. Interesting. Classic. Kinda spooky.
