    I'm reading Brandon Sanderson's "The Well of Ascension" after finishing "Mistborn" a couple of days ago (and loving it). :heart:

    I really need to get back to reading. I think I'm still trying to read the same books as last time I posted in this thread :(

    About to re-read Oryx and Crake, so I can be refreshed before I continue with the series.

    Also, catching up on like the past 2 years of TMNT comics...I fell behind.

    I've started on Artemis, by Andy Weir, and I'm also a few chapters into the Hobbit. I find it difficult to make time to read these days though.

    I liked Andy Weir’s The Martian. I want to read Artemis as well. I wonder if I can find it for kindle.

    Today I managed to read a few pages from The Prisoner of Heaven: A novel. The third book from The Cemetery of Forgotten Books trilogy by Zafon. I love this trilogy and Zafon's a storytelling master, as far as I am concerned. Anywho, hope to finish it soon, though I haven't been able to read much lately. :rolleyes:

    The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. The writing is almost poetic and the storyline reminds me of a more real and adult version of Harry Potter. It is brilliant, so far, and I only have around 30 pages left. Luckily it is part of a trilogy so the story doesn't end just yet.

    I'm greatly enjoin the 1632 series by Eric Flint, about a West Virginian Appalachian coal town called Grantville getting teleported to 1632 Thuringia in Germany during the 30 years war immediately after the sack of Magdeburg. They proceed to make Gustavus Adolphus emperor of the United states of Europe and the Union of Kalmar, save Pope Urban VIII from assassination, get a not guilty verdict for Galileo, set up Committees of Correspondence and a not-communist revolution, start a reverse Kristallnacht featuring the lynching and execution of antisemites, introduce the airplane and zepplin, piss off the Inquisition and turn the Ottomans into a steam punk version of the Mongol Horde, over the next few years. Currently on the Tangled Web, having finished the Dreeson Incident and Galileo Affair and Ram Rebellion. Looking forward to reading the Papal Stakes and the Eastern Front, when they invade Poland and piss off the Tsar.

    I just finished reading Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu for our week's reading at TFF book club. Enjoyed it too, but will write about it later on said thread when we're starting the spoilery discussions.
