I'm on the third book of The Lost Fleet series, and I'm really enjoying the series so far.

Also, I got a lot of books today. Every month the public library has a sale of all the books it gets donated, which helps support the library. They get so much that there is a section where, near the end of a sale, they will let you fill a plastic bag for 50 cents (or a big bag/box for $1). So, I got 16 books for 50 cents, most of them sci fi and all of them in fairly good condition. Here's the list of what I got (I got 16 books in total)

Foundation by Issac Asimov
Foundation and Empire by Issac Asimov
Second Foundation by Issac Asimov
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton
Underworld: Blood Enemy by Greg Cox
Sten by Allan Cole and Chris Bunch
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Hope you like Blood Enemy! Good to know that book is still out floating around . . . .

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Reading Star Wars: Kenobi by JJM. Really great so far. Makes me feel really sad for ObiWan. As far as he knows his son/ best friend turned evil and he was forced to kill him. Then he goes from the life of a war hero to a lonely desert hermit until the day he dies. Poor guy.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

In the last week I've read Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett, DS9: Abyss, Tribal SQL and 4:15 from Paddington.

Enjoyed Raising Steam - nice to have another Moist von Lipwig book!

I'm not sure what to make of Abyss - it didn't really feel like DS9, it felt like an attempt at a Bond novel. Nice to see Ezri starting to move towards the character she is in the Destiny/Pact -era novels - though I enjoy her character in those books, having not read the post-finale DS9 books until now, it had seemed like an abrupt character shift.

In the last couple days I finished Wonder Woman Vol. 2: Guts, the second collection in the New 52 WW series. Great stuff.
I posted my review in my comic book thread over in the SFF forum.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last night I finished Star Trek: The Fall: Revelation and Dust by David R. George III. I really enjoyed it, but never really got into the Keev chapters, every time I got to one I just wanted to hurry up and get back to the DS9 story.

I then read "Beyond the Wall of Sleep" by H.P. Lovecraft.

I'm now reading Supernatural: Carved in Flesh by Tim Waggoner.

I thought I'd give Mutineer by Mike Shepherd a go. After that, it'll probably be the next Fall novel.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished raising steam by sir terry pratchett(which sadly was not very good at all), and the first collection of grant morrison's batman & robin run, which was fairly fun.

A grant morrison headed collection, the absolutlely massive DC one million will be my next read. Really looking forward to that, as I didn't even remotely have the money to keep up with everything at the time - I think all I read back then was the flagship JLA series (this was during grant morrisons legendry world war 3 run) and starman(a superb james robinson collection that really brings to life starman and his city).

Will probably take me a while to get through since there's no way I can lug that thing onto the train!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Have recently read the first three Trek "Fall" novels, all were well-written and interesting (altho for me Revelations and Dust was still the best, since it had more canon Trek characters that I was happy to catch up with), and am looking forward to Fall book #4, less than 2 weeks more to wait .

Dragon's Honor by Greg Cox and Kij Johnson. I'm also reading some of the stories from Star Trek Log 5, novelizations of TAS episodes.
