Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I got a box of books for Xmas. Just finished reading World War Z and have just started reading my way through Feist's Midkemia/Kelewan books (I'm on chapter 2 of Magican so a long way to go yet).

I'm also reading the Ender's Game books for the first time. I'm up to Shadows In Flight. Just waiting on the library to have it available.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished The Road to Serfdom by F.A. Hayek, as well as The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Now I'm reading Twilight as a joke.

It is a very bad joke.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading Blood Rites, the 6th Dresden Files novel. TDF is one of my favorite series and this was one of the best ones yet.
My rating: 5/5.

I just finished Passion Play by Beth Bernobich and One of Our Thursdays is Missing by Jasper Fforde. Currently reading the first issue of my new subscription to Lightspeed magazine (an e-magazine of science fiction and fantasy that is really excellent).

Incidentally, really enjoying my Kindle Fire.

'Snort' I'll probably die and not have read the books in my to-read shelves. I don't have to-read stacks anymore; I have to-read shelves.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I guess everyone has made it to the New Year now. I finished my readings for 2012 with "My Brother's Keeper" (Books 1 - 3) by Michael Jan Friedman (1999) and I see that they now are ST-TOS #85 - #87 and were a good read. I also did finish reading "Frivolities of Courtiers and Footprints of Philosophers" (translated by Pike from Policraticus) by John of Salisbury. For help during reading of this book I went through a copy of "The Eunuch" (translated by Colman) by Terence. Downloaded (uploaded?) a copy of "Only Superhuman" by Christopher L. Bennett recently and hope to get to it soon.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished David Mack's The Body Electric (interesting read). I enjoyed the Cold Equatiuons trilogy and look forward to Dave's next book. To start the year off I am going to give a Star Wars book a try, Heir To The Empire, by Timothy Zahn. I read somwhere online that it is considered the best sequel to the last three movie. Not sure if that is true though?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^Heir to the Empire is the first book of Zahn's "Thrawn Trilogy," which was the beginning of the modern age of Star Wars tie-ins (before then they were intermittent and lacked the modern interconnectedness) and is generally well-regarded in fandom. Be aware that the three books tell a single really long story a la Lord of the Rings. Heir to the Empire is just the first act of the story and isn't a complete tale in itself. Parts 2 & 3 are Dark Force Rising and The Last Command.
