I ship for free so no need to ship anything back... But this might actually be easier:

I'm currently reading 'Wherever You Go, There You Are' by Jon Kabat-Zinn.  It's about mindfulness meditation - something that I really need to incorporate into my life and which I finally feel ready for. 

Prior to that I (re) read 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Stephen Covey, which is one of my 'life reference' books.

Dude, post here: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=780.msg118626#msg118626

I would happily discuss authors with you.

:D

Well, currently I'm reading up on Vernon Vinge, like him ok so far.

When it comes to sci-fi I like Simmons, Banks, Hamilton, Reynolds and the rest of the classics, right now I'm looking for a _large_ series, not necessarily the same storyline, but the same universe, like Reynolds or Banks. Suggestions?

Richard Morgan. He has a core character called Takeshi Kovacs who spans several books.

Ah, I forgot to mention Morgan, have read the Angels-trilogy, his other sci-fi AND his fantasy books, so far I've only read "parasite" by asher (that is one of his, right?), any other of his books you would recommend?

Not really an Asher fan TBH. There's a whole series about a war with these naughty alien crab things. My mate rates them
