Finished The Magician King, it was pretty good. Looking forward to the sequel (apparently the series is intended to be a trilogy). The Empire Strikes Back-esque downer ending was a nice touch.

Johnny Got His Gun was super depressing, but not a bad read (the author's refused to use commas though, no idea why.) It's the book on which Metallica's One was based.

October Sky was a much less depressing read, and actually pretty interesting.

Reading my way through Game Engine Architecture now. Gives a general overview of the components that make up a game engine, focusing mostly on breadth with some depth in certain areas, as well as primers on things like the mathematics involved (lots of matrices), the tools involved (Visual Studio, etc), the structure of a game development team, etc. Pretty excellent read for anyone interested in the industry.
