They're like tribbles! They multiply! I do it so often too! Worse yet is when I see Bargain priced hardcovers. They just keep piling up.

I don't know which breeds more - my books or my doll collection.

Re: What are you reading?

Having just finished The White War, concerning the Italian front of WW1, I'm debating my next read. That book was excellent if mildly depressing (seriously. twelve battles for the same river?), so I want something uplifting. I'm considering my favorite author, Isaac Asimov's, book on The Universe. Last published in 1980, my fear is that it is badly dated by this point. History doesn't change much, but science marches on at the quick-step.

Last week, I read Elizabeth Warren's A Fighting Chance, then started on JFK in the Senate: Pathway to the Presidency. I finished that one last night, which apparently is the first book to focus on JFK's senatorial career.

I'll start reading Glenn Greenwald's No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State sometime in the next few days.

Re: What are you reading?

I've finished The Martian - would love a sequel/companion book about a real colonization attempt, or maybe I'll just write fanfic - I enjoyed it so much I miss the characters now that I'm done with it.

Having mastered feeding the kid with one hand while reading on my phone with the other, I'm now into the second book of Wool (had read the first previously, but re-read it quickly the last two days to refresh my memory). The yarncrafter in me loves that each book title has something to do with yarn. And generally I love a good dystopia, so I'm looking forward to making my way through the whole thing.

Next in the queue is Season of the Harvest, and then I may go back through this thread and see what else has been recommended that I want to read.

The Wool series is one of the best I've read.

Just finished A Long Line of Dead Men by Lawrence Block which was surprisingly excellent and I'm now reading This Town Will Never Let Us Go by Lawrence Miles.

Re: What are you reading?

Believe it or not, I picked up my copy of Voyager: The Eternal Tide and read some this morning. I've had it since it came out, read about half, and set it down. I sat and read three or four chapters.

Ulysses gets good at about 3/4 of the way through.

Currently on extended sabbatical from Joyce's Finnegan's Wake, a book that's as impenetrable as it is funny. Makes Ulysses look positively linear, so far (three chapters).
