What have you just READ?

Postby cerb on Mon May 11, 2009 4:37 pm

Much like the "Which film have you seen last", post here books youve recently read, and those that you plan on reading next. for obvious reasons, this thread will be updated on much longer intervals :P
So i'll start with Song of fire and ice: Game of Thrones. now reading the second book in the series, Clash of kings. planned, is the entire series before finally finishing "Confessions" by Augustine.

I read Bill Brysons Neither here nor there recently. I was the only one of his books I hadn't read, and was as good as I had come to expect from him.
My personal favourite of his is The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, one of the best books I've read.

Anything by Harlan Coben or Michael Connelly is well worth a read. Oh, and anything by Tom Clancy, too. :D

It's suprisingly quite a good read. tbh. With the life he had I'm suprised he's actually still alive and successfull.
TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein

Not completly done with it yet, but very interesting so far thou :]

Planning on reading "the dark tower" series as Xerxes reccomended it to me, and "No Logo" also by Naomi Klein.
"The rover batteries have 18kwh of juice. The oxygenator alone uses 44.1kwh per sol. See my problem?
You know what? "Kilowatt-hours per sol" is a pain in the ass to say. I'm gonna invent a new scientific unit name.
One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
All told, the Big Three need 69.9pn, most of that going to the Oxygenator and Atmospheric regulator."

I have this for my friend's birthday, it sounds very good (might have to read it myself)


jihn wrote:Planning on reading "the dark tower" series


DO IT, I've only read the first 4 so far, they are awesome.

Obviously, I am going to recommend you all to read any of the Conan books (By Robert E. Howard), ISBN: 9780575077669 for any of you wanting the awesome edition (I know that ISBN off by heart!)

Other books that rank high in my opinion:

A Princess of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs
Civil War (Graphic Novel)

I'm currently reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it's good fun (moreso when you've read the original Pride and Prejudice).

I'm currently reading Wildwood by Roger Deakin. It's wonderful nature writing from a guy who can ramble all over the place as he goes and you really don't care because he writes so well and maintains your interest throughout. It's like a surprisingly edifying and engaging chat with your grandpa.

You're going to have a lot of fun :mrgreen:
If you're really lucky "The Mountain that Writes" will have finished A Dance with Dragons by the time you finish A Feast for Crows.

doubt it, reading a book per week ;)

most of you have missed the point of this thread - recommending good reads is great, but the point was telling what book youre reading now, and/or planning on reading :)
