Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to spend 5 hours at the main branch of the Salt Lake City (UT) Public library, and used the chance to get through as much of Taking Wing, the first Titan book, as I could (I ended up reading about half of it). I had been hoping that the Hastings bookstore near where I live would have had the book available for purchase when I went there two days ago (Monday), but it did not, and I therefore was unable to resume my reading of Taking Wing. Not wanting to leave the store empty-handed, though, I picked up Watching the Clock, and am really enjoying it.

I do hope to be able to go to the closest Barnes and Noble store soon (maybe this weekend) and pick up Taking Wing (they had it in stock the last time I was there about two and a half weeks ago), but probably won't resume reading it (if I'm able to get my hands on it) until after I finish WtC.

I was thinking of picking up The Sundered. Let me know if you like it bok. I have enjoyed a few of the Lost Era books.

Finished Indistinguishable From Magic, onto Mission Gamma Book 2. Which gives me (inadvertantly) back to back Nog.

I think that happened to me on New Years.....

The Last Four Things (The Left Hand of God #2) by Paul Hoffman just came out in paperback. It looks like Gemworld II is back on the back burner...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished up Rings of Time. Fun read! Despite the length (obviously more than 42 min worth), just felt like a nice, comfortable TOS episode, and shortened to fit the medium, would have slotted nicely into the series. Fun story/mystery, the past aspect was enjoyable, and the characters were spot on.

You should set up a poll and review thread Scout

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In fact, it's probably about time to set up a review thread for That Which Divides since it's only ten days out, and JD opened the one for Rings a bit more than two weeks before the release date because books sometimes arrive early. I guess I'll go do that now.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Now i am reading one that is green and called STAR TREK ACADEMY : Collision Course, and the guy who played Admiral Kirk supposedly wrote the thing! with 2 helpers. I wonder how much of it he actually wrote. I remember back in 90s when i was a child seeing all these books called TEK WAR that he wrote at my library. I got one out but never read it. At least i dont remember it. I wonder if he had helpers to write that one too?

Oh and by the way this one is fun! I my minds eye i see the younger cast from the JJ Abrams film in my little head. I m not sure why i just do tho! '
