Re: What book are you currently reading?

Blah. I can't keep track anymore.

Finished Well of Assention and Hero of Ages in the Mistborn Trilogy and also read the new book in that world An Alloy of Law. Mistborn was really good. The next... not sure how I feel about it but there probably are another two books coming. Also read Elantris by Sanderson - good, but a bit oddly paced.

Finished Enchanter and then Starman of that triology and in the second trilogy that follows by Sara Douglas, finishing Sinner and now currently reading Pilgrim.

As for Feist's Riftwar Cycle, finished the first two books, Talon of the Silverhawk and King of Foxes and have started Exile's Return which finishes off that trilogy.

And... I think that's it for now.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Kael. Kael! Kaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa el!!!

Memory of Light. In my hands. Right now.

Also began the Malazan Book of the Fallen series, finished Gardens of the Moon and about to begin Deadhouse Gates. It's really a WTF series. Some good stuff but Eriksson makes no effort to explain anything to you. This happens, you accept it with description or insight to motivation. K?

It's good, just a lot different than I expect from fantasy writing. You really have to plow through to get any sort of basis of the story and background. At least in book one.

Riftwar Cycle continues. Finished the Demonwar Saga which consisted of Rides a Dread Legion and At the Gates of Darkness (neither particularly good) and on to the final trilogy of the whole world (perhaps ever) the Chaoswar Saga, starting with A Kingdom Beseiged.

Also completed the Wayfarer's Redemption by Sara Douglas, Crusader being the last book. Is OK.

I've had it since last Thursday, been reading it mostly at work. I have about 250 pages left (I got through the first 10 chapters (and 90 page prologue) in 6 hours).

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Has anyone read any of those old Jane Austen books? I read Sense and Sensibility recently. It was actually hilarious, which is interesting, because I was expecting *boring love story*.

WELL HELLO!
If you enjoyed sense and sensibility you should check out northanger abbey! The main character is so clueless!
And Mansfield park is RIDDLED with ridiculous rude people.
If you wish to talk about any Jane Austen books in more detail feel free to message me!

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Ah, Northanger Abbey? I'll have to look for that at the library! And I do love ridiculous rude people. I've heard of Mansfield Park (I think I may have a copy, actually). I'll probably start that one next. And sure! I love discussing books, and after reading Sense and Sensibility, I think I'm becoming a Jane Austen addict. ^.^

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Currently reading "Ack-Ack Macaque." It's about an eye-patch-wearing, cigar-chomping macaque that flies a Spitfire during World War II and he fights Nazi ninjas. Oh, and there's some conspiracy crap about a cult and a prince or whatever. But I'm reading it for the monkey.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Recently bought several books I'll be reading over the next few weeks:

Mortality (Christopher Hitchens)
Every Day is an Athiest Holiday (Penn Jillette)
Tenth of December (George Saunders)
Building Stories (Chris Ware)
Free Will (Sam Harris)
The Life of Objects (Susana Moore)
House of Earth (Woody Guthrie)
My Brother's Book (Maurice Sendak)


I had been planning to buy Sam Harris's "Free Will" for a little while, but I made a conscious effort to go buy it today after watching this talk given by him.
