What books are you reading right now?

Discussion in 'Tilted Art, Photography, Music & Literature' started by sapiens, Aug 12, 2011.

  1. Finished Dead Bodies Bite, Vol. 2. Found it a bit disappointing as some of the stories had grammar and spelling mistakes. Also, a few of the stories appeared to be written by middle school students.

    Starting on Apocalypticon, yes, yet another zombie book. Last one in the Kindle library. Hopefully it'll be better than the last one.

    Yuck!

    Please take a look at the Library thread, many cool photos.
     
  3. I was wrong about Apocolypticon, it's not quite a zombie book. Pretty funny as well. Definitely not what I expected, but in a good way. Fun read so far.

    A new one by Steven Brust

    One of my favorite authors
    Always great plot, characters and banter from him


    Not another from the Vlad Taltos series
    But a totally new storyline
    Modern Earth...but with magic

    It will be interesting to see what he does with this
    Haven’t been disappointed with him yet
    His books are always fun...page turners

    ——

    Oh yeah...and re-reading The Organized Mind
    Need it right now...

    I know that memoirs aren't autobiographies in the sense of being chronological, more or less. But Elvis Costello's Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink jumps around like crazy.

    This memoir might be a Must Read for serious Costello fans, not so much for casual fans.

    That Metamorphosis is a quick one. (drug induced??) I accidentally read it once, as it was a free item on my Kobo (e-reader) so I thought I would check it out.

    "Chumash". A complete Old testament with extensive commentary selected from the various biblical scholars. It's got the full rashi and onkelos too but only in the original hebrew. It's good to know where your people came from and where it all started.

    I just finished a Jack Reacher novel Echo Burning. My dad's been sending me these to read, they're really good.

    One thing I wanted to mention (and it was discussed here earlier) that I saw the movie before reading any of the books, and initially I was okay with Tom Cruise as the character. However, the more I read, the less and less Cruise fits him. In my own head, I picture Dolph Lundgren (in his 30's) as Jack Reacher, and he meshes perfectly.

    HH author co-authored with Eric Flint "1633" a sequel to Flint's wildly successful "1632" which has spawned a whole series.
    I've read nearly all of the 1632 Universe novels and shorties.

    I neglected to say what I'm currently reading: 1635: "The Wars For The Rhine" be Flint co-conspirator Anette Pedersen. In the Seventeenth Century family connections, arranged marriages, religion, (of the nobility only, of course) mattered much more than ideology.
