About 8 different books, I think.  I have a few beside my bed and a few on the kindle.

Gave up on the last book I was reading because it was f*ckin' boring, so I'm now re-reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

 

Book fair on Friday...hope to find some new reads then!!!

Hehe, I'm reading Titus Groan, Gormenghast Trilogy.

I'm reading for the kids. icon_lol.gif Because our town was just rated the highest in illiteracy in the state. I guess I am the only one around here reading the books? studyingbrown.gif

I recently became enamored with the books by a self published author named Hugh Howey.  He's writing two series and has a few other stand-alone books.  Howey has been taking the publishing world by storm lately because the Omnibus Edition of his Wool series has been garnering all kinds of acclaim and notoriety, both because of the self publishing success story and because it is a truly awesome book!

 

Wool is a speculative SciFi series of five novellas collected into an omnibus edition, has been followed up with a three novel Silo Series, and will be resolved with two more novels that bring the two story arcs together.  To say I devoured the whole series without a break and am dying for more would be an understatement.  Ridley Scott has optioned Wool for the big screen.  I give the Wool Omnibus my highest recommendation. 

 

He also has four novels thus far in his Molly Fyde SciFi series, of which I finished the first.  It was really good and I already have the next three waiting on the bookshelf.

 

I've also read two of his other books, Half Way Home, a brave, unique SciFi tale, and I, Zombie, a unique, fresh, and absolutely disturbing perspective on the zombie genre.  I highly recommend both.

 

I really encourage any and everyone to check this guy out, great stories really well written, and a really cool success story to go along with it.

My Girlfriend in HS turned me onto this Trilogy (Gormenghast 'Cutflower- La!') after she turned me onto The Lord of The Rings.  She got me into other writers than Tolkien...like Anne McCaffrey, The Earthsea Wizard Trilogy....Circle of Light series......Really opened my scope of reading....readred.gif

A Memory of Light, the final book of The Wheel of Time, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

 

The 14th book, and it was all worth it....

A Memory of Light, the final book of The Wheel of Time, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

 

The 14th book, and it was all worth it....

Didn't realise the last one was finally out. Obsessively read (multiple times) the first 7 or 8 volumes...then it just seemed that Jordan was padding it out without adding anything vital to the story.  I got into the series about the time The Dragon Reborn came out and thought it was a trilogy...even AFTER I read all three books. The joke sure was on me. More than half of my life later it concludes at last. When Jordan died I was still disheartened (despite the padded later books). I have not read any of the Sanderson books. I suppose now is the time.

 

Currently I am finally reading Clockwork Angels. 2/3 in and it is keeping my interest, though not demanding my constant attention. I have thoughts but won't  comment until I have completed the book to see where it is really going.

 

After that, there is a new Terry Brooks book out that must be devoured.

 

Due to kids needing to eat and such other trivial financial matters, I had to cut back on my comic book/graphic novel/trade paperback habit. I am pretty much down to the essentials that I have been enjoying for a number of years now...The Walking Dead and Fables being the top two must buy books every six months.

Lots of great finds at the book fair yesterday. Added a bunch more books to my Shakespeare collection, as well as lots of other stuff.

 

The only bad thing about it...finding you don't have enough money to buy everything you want. icon_cry.gif

Just started volume 3 (of 16) of the Handbook of the Birds of the World. Started the series over a year ago. Expect to be done in about 7 more years.

 

About 28% of the way through Zorro by Isabel Allende, in the original Spanish.

Bill Bryson's Notes from a Small Island, about his time among we Britons.

Not particularly funny, but enlightening.

A friend of mine, Robin Glasser, recently published her book The Brain Exchange. It's an odd read, reminds me of Cory Doctorow.


Please buy my books so I can send my girl to a decent school.
