Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I was reading The Humans Who Went Extinct, but it's gone missing, so shortly before thanksgiving I began the so-far wonderful 1493, by Charles C Mann. History meets biology with climate and economics thrown in...

^I have toyed with the idea of reading the Lost Fleet books in the past. I think I will hold off now

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished reading Gemworld book2 by John Vornholt the story was okay but not the best story I've read in a older TNG novel recentlty.I like the Reg Barclay story arc I didn't like Melora Pazlar's character in these novels. I never really liked her attitude towards the other Enterprise members.She certainly should've been kicked out of Starfleet.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished The Never-Ending Sacrifice last night. What a great read. A sequel to a great episode of DS9, a great coda to the series as a whole, too. Can't believe I've finished out the DS9-R. (Yes, I know that there are newer DS9 books but they're in Typhon Pact!)

Taking a small break from Trek-Lit to catch up on my comics/graphic novel reading. Also, I'm planning on reading The Hobbit over the next few weeks in preparation for the movie. I actually haven't read it before, much to my shame. When the LotR films came out, I read each book right before the film. I had every intention of going back and reading The Hobbit, but never did. Now's my chance.

When I did read the LotR books, I listened to the Rob Inglis audiobooks at the same time. Which actually made me really enjoy the book the more, with Inglis singing all the songs and speaking elvish. I might do that again.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Starting Obama does Globalistan by Pepe Escobar or Bzerzinski: Technochratic Age, not sure which one to pick.

As far as lighter reading is concerned i finally finished the third Errand of Vengeance book. So now i will try the Star Trek the Best and The Brightest and give a shot to a Battletech trilogy called the Jade series i think.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading The Persistence of Memory a few days ago and I loved it. Since it's by David Mack, count on a surprise ending...

Now reading Star Wars: Choices of One. As it takes place before The Empire Strikes Back, it's interesting to read about everyone's characterization. (Especially an experienced, but still rather geeky and naive Luke Skywalker).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I decided to take a short break from the stuff I'm reading to work my way through the e-book companion to James Rollins Sigma Force series, the Sigma Guide which is written by our very own Greg Cox. So far it's been a really nice overview of the series.

Thanks! That was a fun project that I worked closely with Jim on.
