Well, my average is really slipping now -- I'm up to a book every 5.9 days (15 books read in 2011). Life has intervened and there was little time for reading these last couple weeks.
This novel was another winner -- once again old school sci-fi. This time the characters head out to a distant planet in another solar system, light-years away, looking for the aliens they encountered in the first books.
Next up, I'm going in a completely different direction and reading Rushdie's latest.
