Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I should be done with Reaper Man before the night's it over. I've really enjoyed all of the Discworld books I've read, but I think this one has been my favorite so far. My Rating: 10/10.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Currently reading: "Menace from Earth;" and, I may be reading Alan Moore's "Lost Girls" simultaneously.

(Side-question: Has anyone read the Doctor Who novel, "Matrix"? If so, is the book a waste of time, or worth the time?)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just wrote my review for the stellar final chapter in the Vanguard saga: Storming Heaven by David Mack.

Now, I'm dividing my reading time between Russka: The Novel of Russia by Edward Rutherfurd and Errand of Vengeance #2: Killing Blow by Kevin Ryan.

I didn't know my dad wrote a Trek book as well!

(His middle initial is R, mine's A)

After I get through with A Clash Of Kings (which I'd hoped to get through rereading before the season started, but hey-ho) I've finally got a hold of Carte Blanche...

I finished Variable Star last night (liked it, but the ending took a left turn in my opinion). I also started in on A Clash of Kings.

Just downloaded Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders, by Samuel R. Delany to my NOOK.

I'm also reading Hide Me Among the Graves by Tim Powers, The Alton Gift by "Marion Zimmer Bradley" and Deborah J. Ross (a re-read) and Star Trek: That Which Divides by Dayton Ward. And listening to Diamonds are Forever by Ian Fleming in the car/at the gym. Whew!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

One thing I've noticed myself doing since I picked up my kindle in December is reading more than one book at a time. Not sure why I never did before now.

Currently reading:

Vanguard: What Judgments Come
ST: That Which Divides
Gauntlgrym: Neverwinter, book I

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Star Wars: Republic Commando - Triple Zero, and absolutely loved it. I really prefer this series' take on the Mandalorian culture way more than what they're doing in the Clone Wars TV series. It's a shame Lucasfilm can't let the whole canon thing slide for just one last book so Karen Travis can close this series out properly.

I don't normally read two Star Wars books back to back, but my name hit the top of the waiting list for Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi - Apocalypse at my local library, so I'm reading that now.

My "on deck" book has also changed-- my daughter bought a book called Willow by Julia Hoban about a girl who self injures. I read a few bits of it before letting her get it, but since that's on a par with drugs and alcohol in this family I want to fully read it so we have a basis for discussing it. So Catching Fire will just have to wait a little longer.
