Simple question.
What are you currently reading?

Myself? I am re-reading "Off Armageddon Reef", "Sherlock Holmes" and "Warlord of Mars".

Currently reading the Ayn Rand classics The Fountainhead and We the Living
Also decided to read the Beautiful Creatures book series. Kinda like the movie more. I mean, Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson had a southern accent with amusing dialogue between the two.

I'm about to finish "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Gotta say one of the most depressing books I've ever picked up!

After "reading" (listening to audiobooks) Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, I've moved onto another set of books set in the same Commonwealth universe of Peter F. Hamilton. I'm reading/listening to the first book of The Void Trilogy, The Dreaming Void. As usual, trying to remember everyone's voice and name is really hard. There's so many characters that following it in audiobook form is kinda difficult, but I've mostly managed. It's soooo much easier to remember characters if I see their name in print.

All three were and have been good. I wished he'd go into more detail about everyday life and technology used in the galaxy, but he's too busy telling me about 40 different characters, haha.

I'm currently reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It is very entertaining if you like LOTS of 80s references and trivia.

Recently finished "Snow Crash" and "Cold Days", the most recent book in the Dresden Files series.

Next up will be either the first book of the Star Wars Thrawn trilogy, or the third Game of Thrones book.

Been reading compilations of Charles Bukowski's poetry and Philip K. Dick's Confessions of a Crap Artist. Hope to be done with both before spring break hits for me so I can cycle in another book or two.

Probably going to start re-reading the entire Riftwar Cycle by Raymond Feist since the final book is coming out soon. I really wish they'd make the third Krondor game to finish that story-line even though the main series is way past that point by now. Still it was really cool that Feist included both game story-lines into the main series and actually let them have a significant impact on the events of the following books.
When in doubt, hit it with a bigger hammer.
