We have a "What are you listening?" thread so might as well make a "What are you reading?" thread.


So....what u read now?


Yesterday, I finished The Wise Man's Fear, the second book in the Kingkiller Chronicles. It was a bit disappointing since the first book was so good. Still don't know why it's called the Kingkiller Chronicles but I guess we will find out when the third book comes out.

Today I started reading Hyperion. I'm only about 30 pages in but so far so good.

Right now I'm reading A Princess of Mars, and The King James Version of the Bible (I've read another version, but I want to read the oldest English text possible and develop my own interpretation). There's a ton of gems available on http://www.gutenberg.org, classic works in the public domain available for free. I've downloaded Hamlet, Works of Edgar Allen Poe - Volume 2, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Great Expectations, and The War of the Worlds, all of which I plan to read when I have the time (probably vacation).

Now, I'm reading A Feast for Crows. Afterwards, probably Path of the Seer by Gav Thorpe or some more of the Raven books by James Barclay, and maybe Witch Watch by Shamus Young, and Roadside Picnic (no idea who the author is).

Neuromancer by William Gibson. I've been on and off it for a few months now, I've finally decide to just pick it up and finish it already.

Just finished the Green Mile and near the end of the second Hunger Games novel (and trust me when I say if you thought the original was too predictable, you'll be very much pleased with the direction of the sequel).

I second that rec. Love this book.

I'm currently reading a bunch of economics books and a GRE prep manual. I'm trying to start the Hunger Games, but that's mainly because I want to find out what the fuss is about. I'm only a few pages in and I have a feeling I won't get around to finishing it, but we'll see.

I usually read several books at once, I'm easily distracted I guess.

The first Hunger Games doesn't get very good until the second act. I didn't think I'd be able to finish it either.

The last book I've read is Solaris by Stanislav Lem. One of my very favourite books.
Next on the list is The Centenarian Who Climbed Out Through the Window and Vanished.
