What Are You Reading Now?

Postby Metcarfre » 28 Feb 2009, 11:24

Over reading break, I managed to read a few books. I re-read Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything, Freakanomics, and World War Z. In addition, I'm always re-reading Mountaineering; The Freedom of The Hills (7th Edn), which is the mountaineering 'textbook'. What have you been reding of late? Anything interesting?

I recently started reading Eye of the world by Robert Jordan. I'm rather enjoying it, though its taking me a while to get through it because other stuff keeps coming up.

Midnight Tides

Postby Shandi » 28 Feb 2009, 11:57

Oh, you know, Eye of the World is great. I've been stuck on The Dragon Reborn for over a year now, but I plan to finish the series.

In the meanwhile I've read a lot but right now Steven Erikson's, Midnight Tides, is addicting. I've got Todd Lockwood's cover art as my desktop.

Nothing currently but want to get back to Acts of Creation and Ghost in the Machine again and finally make sense of it all by Arthur Koestler.

Juggling Notes from the Underground, The Brothers Karamazov, Don Quixote and Flowers for Algernon. I tried to read Gulliver's Travels but gave up 50 pages in because the writing style is just repulsive.

Right now, I'm about two chapters into The Devil You Know by Mike Carey. It's the first of the Felix Castor books and it's not too shabby. I'm also rereading Watchmen for like the eighth time in preperation for the movie.

I'm currently working on my Transmet and Sandman collections, and I'm extreamly partial to some Terry Pratchett. Otherwise, I have a copy of Gormenghast I've been meaning to finish for maybe two years. Maybe I'll get around to that some time soon ;)

I'm reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Nation by Terry Pratchett at the moment.

I'd like to be reading The Wise Man's Fear, but Mr. Rothfuss may take all the time he wishes in writing it first. :)

Technically I'm reading The Divine Comedy right now, but it's on the backburner due to school. In English, we just finished up with Emily Dickinson, and over March Break I have to read Heart of Darkness.

Nation was absolutely excellent. I thought it was on of Pratchett's best in at least a couple of years. How's Graveyard Book?

took me 2 weeks to get through the first chapter of that!! then again i did finish the rest in 2 more weeks. i've been meaning to reread the WoT series for a while now.

I'm currently reading The Fall of Carthage by Adrian Goldsworthy, which is pretty interesting. i'm literally just reading history books at the moment.

Considering none of them exceeded forum width even when expanded, I'd hardly call them "giant-ass pictures".


Unless you meant to say "giant ass-pictures", in which case I'm wondering where you found pictures of Tank_girl's ass, and if you'd be willing to share.

Re-reading Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson and also re-reading A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Probably looking at Anansi Boys (Neil Gaiman) or Rules of Attraction (Bret Easton Ellis) next. Or maybe just A Clash of Kings again.

Scouting around my house I found the Confessions by St. Augustine which I never finished. I might just try that again.

I just started 'Sword Song' by Bernard Cornwell today, but I'd like to recommend my previous book 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' by Mark Haddon.
