Re: What are you reading?

I am reading the play Orphans by Lyle Kessler.

I loved the movie version of the play and I think the movie, which stars Albert Finney, Matthew Modine and Kevin Anderson, is very underrated. I am halfway through the play and it seems that the movie was very true to the play.

I'm finishing up the third book in Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy. The Assassin's Quest.
Ugh, that was a slog. The first two books in the series were excellent, but this third one pretty much ruins the whole thing. Endings are tricky to pull off.

Anyway, I just picked up "Guns, Germs, and Steel" based on a recommendation from a friend. I don't usually read non-fiction, so it should be a nice change of pace.

You won't be sorry. That's an excellent book.

Legend by Marie Lu. So far, it's pretty good.

Re: What are you reading?

I am 10% though Bleak House by Charles Dickens. I am alternating between the e-book version and the audio version depending on what I am doing. Sometimes I read and listen at the same time. I am really enjoying this novel - it has been a long time since I read any Dickens at all and this is the first time I have read Bleak House.

The Sandcastle Girls, by Chris Bohjalian. Very interesting, but something about the protagonist/narrator is annoying (haven't been able to define exactly what yet), so I'm not enjoying it as much as I'd like to.

I need a new book to read. I've just read all 63 pages of this thread, and I'm no closer than when I started. I guess I'm currently "reading this thread!"

Re: What are you reading?

I am still working my way through Bleak House - so many characters to keep track of.

I have also started reading The Lost World of Socotra By Richard Boggs. This book covers the history, culture, wildlife of a island I had never heard of before coming across this book. Here is a short video showing a little of this fascinating place

I need something to read too, but the problem is I don't know what I'm in the mood for. I have like $200 in Amazon gift cards and... completely lost. I probably should be reading books about babies, like What to Expect When You're Expecting, but I figure I'll just wing it. He can't turn out that badly, as long as I read to him. Any suggestions for reading to the unborn?
