Finished today Dead Until Dark, waitress falls in love with a vampire and there's murders and vampire sex.
I liked it.
There's also HBO tv series based on it called True Blood, think I'll have to watch it.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? - Philip K. Dick

I should probably be shot for not having read this already :oops:
But I am so glad I did, it's the kind of book I like. UNlike many novels whihc try to ound clever by cramming in a ton of long words that a re unnecessary, this is written in relatively simple english whihc allows the quality of it's narrative and message to shine through brilliantly.

So far this summer i have read these books by Jo Nesbø:


The Bat Man
The Cockroaches
The Redbreast
Nemesis

And right now im on: The Devil's Star, then "the redeemer" and "the snowman"

And got the first 4 volumes of the dark towers nicely wrapped on the bookshelf now :D
"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."

White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

Now on The Secret Life of Trees by Colin Tudge. It's all about trees and botany; and it's honestly very fascinating.

Prepare to join us in the long wait for the 5th book (3 years late and counting) :P
What do you make of the split in perspectives in the 4th book? For most people (myself included) AFfC misses out on all the characters you want to hear about the most.

Currently reading "The Flight of the Eisenstien"- the fourth book in the Horus Heresy saga (warhammer 40000 universe for those unfamiliar with the series).

Before I started on the current journey I finished reading all of the Coyote books by Allen Steele - I highly recommend these books to anyone who enjoys science fiction (and even to those who don't).

Btw, first post...

Well, i dont think the author had a choice really, seeing how the characters ended up on the 3rd book..


john lord commander - not going anywhere, daenerys ruling in one of the slaver cities, tyrion hiding beyond the sea, bran -well, beyond the wall. catelyn - well, wont make for an interesting POV, wont she?

Finished 'Beyond Band of Brothers: Memoires of Major Dick Winters' recently. I'm a total WW2 nut and love anything related to it. This book is a really nice addition to the Band of Brothers book (or series / both).

I just ordered the memoires of Donald Malarkey and Wild Bill Guarnere / Babe Heffron , more reading soon! :mrgreen:
