Recent books  
The Martian Chronicles (left on "free books" table at work): A good read of classic scifi short stories in a larger arc. I really should have read this years (decades?) ago.

Java Message Service (available): A good introduction to technology that is of almost no use to me on my current projects, but would have made some of my work at FreeI significantly easier.

Childhood's End (available): How did I miss an Arthur C. Clarke book? A few interesting concepts, but not really engaging in either character interaction or hard science.

Powerful Times (reserved for Kyna): A surprisingly engaging collection of speculative essays for the next century. Nothing that seems too implausible as he discusses eceonomic, environmental, and social trends.

Getting Things Done (in progress): I just started reading this last night, and it seems to be mostly the kind of task management skills that should be common sense, but are surprisingly difficult. Lifehacks and 43Folders have been generating a lot of buzz for this, so I figure it's worth a try.
Current Music: 300 Days Late. (Meanwhile, The Comics Podcast) by T Campbell abd Dave Belmore
