    I just started reading a Zane Grey book. Seems good so far. I wanted to see how good the books are Colonel Potter from MASH likes them. :)

    I started the first The Wheel of Time book, The Eye of The World, last week as preparation for the Amazon Prime series' premiere this Friday.

    Not books, but I was on the Toomics app and checking out a few comics.

    Reading The Sweetness of Water by Nathan Harris, and I'm kind of struggling through it. It's so slow moving. As something that's supposedly character-driven, the characters are paper-thin and only really exist to serve the plot, which is a shame because the period of history directly following the post-emancipation, deserves to be explored with more respect.

    My husband and I were told by some friends that Discworld books were good. Right now we are on: The Wyrd Sisters and the Pyramids. We are reading them in order. Have any of you read them? Did you like them? Are friends are just crazy about them. So we are reading them so we can understand what they are talking about!:)

    I love the Discworld books, they are a blast. It's been a while since I read my last one, Guards, Guards! and I really should get back to them some time. I've had Men at Arms sitting on my Nook account for a while, but haven't read it yet.
    I'm still working my way through The Eye of The World and I've also started Cold Days, the 14th book in Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files series.

    I don't like the tv show Outlander but are the books any better or worse?

    I'm still buried in comics. I'll get back to novels one day...

    I like the first one, but haven't read the others yet. I've seen a bit of the BBC movies.

    Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake. I didn’t ‘get’ it in my 20s, but reading it in my 40s and I think it’s sublime.

    Just started The Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield. A space thriller written by a former astronaut. Basically, he imagines what an Apollo 18 mission might have been. Complete with lots of intrigue. And Russians.
