Re: What are you reading?

^^ Nextissue sounds interesting. I'm going to have to switch my SF magazine subscriptions to esubscriptions simply because I have no more room in my house.

Meanwhile, I'm still reading Anathem. It's my life's work.

Re: What are you reading?

no matter how many times I read the Hunger Games, it's like I'm reading it for the first time...and in the third book...Mockingjay, when Katniss tells the cat her sister is dead, I cry.

Now, I'm reading Samaki, by J. A. Davis, a story of an otter in Africa, from the otter's point of view. What a lovely book. It reminds me of the very first book I ever took out of the library, back when I was about 9 years old...called An Otter's Story.

Re: What are you reading?

I am reading Spiders by Richard Lewis. It is a typical 'killer animal' novel that were popular in the 1970/1980s.

Edited to add - I am on to chapter 5 of Spiders and so far four women have had their physically description given and each description mentions the state of their boobs and thighs.

March 2013 issue of Analog magazine. I started reading "Instinctive Response" by Bond Elam... prompting me to "borrow" it from the waiting room at the Veterans' Administration today.

Re: What are you reading?

Just finished Pete Townshend's autobiography, "Who I Am', very informative, pretty interesting. I never thought of myself as a Who fan, but when I realised how much of their music I'd heard and liked, I may have t change that. Good stuff, you should read if you are of a certain age.

A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby. I gave myself about five days to read it before the book club meeting, and lo and behold two of those work days have contorted into snow days, and the book's quite readable, and I'm going to finish today. I really didn't want to start another book before the meeting. Oh well!

I've heard that some of the books are slow as molasses, but I've never read one myself, so I can't tell for sure. Let us know how you like it.

On Monday I bought the closing volume of a comic called "Zombies" by french scenarist Olivier Peru. I've never read "The Walking Dead" comics and when I asked about them the shop assistant advised me to read the Zombies-series instead. Probably because it is shorter. Anyway, it is great.

Re: What are you reading?

When I was out spending my Christmas gift certificates on Sunday, I came across another Burroughs tribute anthology called Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs; this one has stories about Tarzan, Pellucidar, Carson, et al. I'll probably dip into this when I finish Anathema, somewhere around 2026.

Re: What are you reading?

My reads at the moment

Audiobook - The Potato Factory by Bryce Countney, It is long book and it will take me about two weeks to get through.

Paper book - The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufmann. A novella I have just started, I picked it up for $1.95. Its blurb -

A robber charges into a bank with a loaded gun, but instead of taking any money he steals an item of sentimental value from each person. Once he has made his escape, strange things start to happen to the victims.
A tattoo comes to life, a husband turns into a snowman, a baby starts to shit money. And Stacey Hinterland discovers that she’s shrinking, a little every day, and there is seemingly nothing that she or her husband can do to reverse the process.
e-Book - Killer Tunes (a Bailey MacIntyre Celtic Fiddle Mystery) by Karen Cunningham. A cozy mystery in which a fiddle player investigates a murder with the help of a ghost. I should finish it tonight.
