Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I received Empire of Illusion: the End of Literacy and Triumph of Spectacle by Chris Hedges. Disturbing book, almost gratuitous -- but thought-provoking to be sure. I didn't read anything else until I'd finished it.

Now I have No Logo by Naomi Klein and The Sun's Heartbeat to consider.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I couldn't resist a re-read of Jeff Smith's Bone, less than a year after first reading it. While I was hunting for my next book, it was the only one to really pull me in. But of course I'll get through it quickly so I'm really just delaying the inevitable.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just re-read Star Wars: Hard Contact as part of my Star Wars read-through. (Which is more or less a side project).

Now, The Sorrows Of Empire. (I know I do a lot of re-reading, but both of these books are good enough to do so, especially in a reading project).

Finished The Diamond of Darkhold. Nice ending to the series. Much better than the middle two books.

Now I'm reading Stolen Innocence: really long subtitle by Elissa Wall. It's a memoir of a girl who grew up in the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints under Warren Jeffs.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finally found one of the Psych tie-ins by William Rabkin, Mind Over Magic, which captures the back-and-forth of Shawn and Gus pretty well so far... Wish they'd let others do some, so I could have a go, but it seems to be a single-author series.

Thanks for the advice, but I've read them all already. Hahaha. I just like reading series in order again after waiting several months.

The only ones I really didn't care for were Order 66 and 501st.

I really enjoyed that one as well as A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Read. However, I was very disappointed in the latest one, Mind-Altering Murder. For some reason the author seemed to have lost the voice for the characters in that one; the characterizations seemed totally off to me. It seems most of the books based on USA shows are single-author series. It's kind of a shame, because I'd like more of a variety, and I'd definitely be interested in reading a Psych novel by you.

I finished Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel. I thought it was really good and enjoyed it a lot.

I then read the first (and so far only) volume of Warehouse 13 comics.

I'm now reading New Frontier: Excalibur - Requiem.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Really enjoying The Lost Years by J.M. Dillard. It is based almost entirely on the big three though.

Brian Wood is currently doing a comic book adaptation of Howard's QotBC through Dark Horse comics. He's doing it as at least 25 issues i hear. IMO, it's been quite good...if you're interested in reading a different take on the character
