What are you reading?


#1

I’m about to start on The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The only other thing of Neil Gaiman that I’ve read and watched is Stardust.


#2

Ive started the Deverry Cycle by Katharine Kerr - on the 4th book of the first cycle. Need to try and source her other books - they are difficult to source some times - hopefully I can get them all in paperback otherwise I will settle for ebooks


#3

Do Audiobooks count? Because I’ve been getting more into audiobooks as of late.


#4

I’m currently reading:

Wheel of Time: The Path of Daggers as a physical book.

Buying Time by Joe Haldeman as an audiobook. It was part of a Humble Bundle a while back. i’ve slowly been going through all the books that were part of that bundle. I only listen to this while driving to work.

A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin as an audiobook during other times.


#7

Yeah tell us about them.


#8

I’ve read the series twice, it is amazing! Enjoy, it’s a long journey.

My wife bought me the new trilogy by Robin Hobb; she’s one of my favourite authors. Just need to start reading.


#9

I still need to read the latest books and this still after I convinced @Saint_Dee to keep at the series when he lost interest.

I’ve reread books 1 - 10 about 4 times. :sweat_smile:


#10

So I recently finished the Harry Potter series as read by Stephen Fry, which was absolutely awesome. I then finished Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy on audiobook as well. In fact, I finished that last week. This week I want to start my 30 day trial with Audible and the first book I want to listen to is Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss.


#11

I gave up by book 6 every time I tried those.

Im craving some Raymond E.Feist tho.

Also need to get the new Robin Hobb - thanks for reminding me


#12

I also lost interest and stopped reading book 6 at some point in time. I then I had to reread it to continue. As in I reread from book 1. From book 6 I find this series exceptionally boring. I really hope it gets better. Even struggling now with book 8 which I’m almost finished with.


#13

I have bad news for you Soli, Books 9 & 10, and about half of 11 are very boring. I tend to speed through them. However, please perservere. Books 12,13,14 are absolutely fantastic! I really am glad Sanderson came in to finish them, his writing style really suits these books.

Otherwise, if they become too much for you, find a TL:DR for Books 9, 10, 11 and then read from Book 12. You won’t be sorry.


#14

Oh noes! I will persevere. Was given the books as gifts long ago. Don’t own all of them but most of them. Not sure how many I’m missing.


#15

Well there is the main Saga (books 1-14), then there is also a prequel book (New Spring) which is about Moraine when she was still a bit younger, also a nice read.

You’re welcome to discuss the books with me any time :slight_smile:


#16

Cool :smiley:

I also got the Wheel of Time comics as part of a Humble Bundle ages ago. Must go through those too.


#17

What’s this now? O.o
Seems like some googling is in order.


#18

i said over a month ago that i was going to start reading it but havent made any effort yet :tired_face:


#19

I have to be honest, I loved his books, but lately they all seem the same


#20

I’ve recently read Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. I thoroughly enjoyed them both but for me Pillar’s had the better characters.


#21

I havent read anything in a looong time and i got this for free so, i need to get back into analogue reading lol.

the leddy is also reading this book

and apparently its super good according to her


#22

The World’s Most Dangerous Geek: And More True Hacking Stories - David Kushner
A Song of Ice and Fire: A Dance with Dragons - George R. R. Martin
