    Finished Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth. It's light, YA stuff with a female protagonist. They are filming Divergent in Chicago. That is where the novels are set, so that is a good sign. On the other hand, jumping on the Hunger Games train is a bad sign. The book covers have a ring of fire on them that is a lot like the mocking jay on the Hunger Games books. I will read the third book when it comes out in a couple of months because they move fast and hold your attention. They do seem to be written in a hurry, though.

    Just started 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson. They put tracks all the way around Mercury. A city rides the tracks, just ahead of the brutal sunrise. Mercury makes three rotations about its axis for every two revolutions around the sun, so you don't have to move very fast to stay ahead of the sunrise.

    KSR has already written another novel! He is on a book tour for Shaman.
