Re: What book are you currently reading?

I'm about half finished (100/170 pages) Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis, as I kind of stopped reading for a while there. I am debating what to read when I am finished in a day or two:

0) Continue reading the next book (The Screwtape Letters) in the single-volume C. S. Lewis collection.
1) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
2) A book about the Cold War
3) Buy the $30 pack of the first 3 WoT books.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

1) if you haven't, because you should. If you have - I'd still read it again.
3) because it is really good, but in second spot because you'll want to buy the rest - or suffer the tedium of library.
0 and 2) no opinion. Don't know anything about that series or what book about the Cold War it is.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

kael, ACt and I can all say, that WoT is an excellent choice. But perhaps it would be better to finish the series you started first.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

The "series" I'm reading is just a collection of separate books, they can be read in any order, or not read at all.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy it is, then.

The Cleric Quintet is hard to get into. I hear the first book is painful but it gets better. Isn't the Hunter's Blade Trilogy books 14-17 for the Drizzt books?

Re: What book are you currently reading?

15-18 in the Drizzt books. I still need to complete the series before the Hunter's Blades Trilogy, I'm only missing like 3 books total, and then get the Transition series.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Also check out the Sell Sword series. It deals with two of the main villains of the Drizzt series. Once you start reading about
Jarlaxle
you might get disappointed with villains you read about in other stories.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

I have deviated away from my normal genre of books to read...

"The Russian Concubine" by Kate Funivall

Fuck you all that laugh (or unmanly comments), I have to read this for my Juvenile Delinquency class.

The Percy Jackson & the Olympians books. Fuck that gay ass movie. The books are 100000 times better than that bullshit.

A little over a week later, with some very spurious reading, and I'm half finished
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book 3 of 5, so about 50% done the series.

After finishing this, I think I will read the next book in the other collection of books I mentioned, "The Screwtape Letters." It's an amalgamation of fictional letters written by a senior demon to a subordinate, directing him in the manipulation of humans. I've previously read a condensed version and it was quite interesting, which I expect would still be the case if you don't believe in demons.
