Re: What are you reading?

I'm more than happy to walk out of a bad film or play (and have. Often) but rarely abandon or unfinish a book. I feel I'm in for a time of suffering

Gave up on the Orson Welles biography for the moment and I'm reading a Clint Eastwood one.

Re: What are you reading?

Rand's books are idiotic and morally vacant. Don't expect much. I read Atlas Shrugged at 12 and was able to pin it for the bullshit it was even then...I really don't think it's worth your time. The wikipedia article will tell you everything you need to know about the books, with a lot less Stupid.

Re: What are you reading?

Thanks I'm just old-fashioned and think I have to experience something for myself, even if I have to suffer in the process. Might be a Catholic thing. At least I've been well fore-warned.

^Seriously, though, you'll fine better narrative, more depth, and greater moral fortitude on fanfiction.net. In the Omegaverse!

Currently reading John Gardner's second James Bond novel For Special Services on the train to work, and Robert E. Howard's "The Complete Conan" in bed before turning off the light.

This Catholic read the Wikipedia article and decided that was enough.

Re: What are you reading?

I finished Snuff by Terry Pratchett a while back, so I have officially completed the main Discworld books once. Now I'm alternating between KRAD's tie-in to Supernatural, Bone Key, and Rowling's Chamber of Secrets. I snuck Pygmalion, Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist and Pratchett's Johnny and the Dead before the year got started.

Re: What are you reading?

In between reading short stories from Cryptic by Jack McDevitt, I am working my way through a Clark Ashton Smith anthology on my Kindle and I've just started the short Kolchak novel The Lost World.
