Thread: What are you reading now?

    Finished the Mistborn series. I really enjoyed the entire ride. Something about watching great characters develop and take different routes than you ever imagined is great. Brandon Sanderson may be my favorite writer of the moment; at least in Fiction.

    Delving back into the real world though. Reading another one by Richard Dawkins: The magic of Reality. He usually provides a good thought provoking read.
    Buy the ticket take the ride.

    I thought she hit her stride with the second book and then the third one was written with an eye to the movie it would become.

    Charles Dickens.

    By Claire Tomalin.

    What a man, what a life, what a story.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Acorna's Quest. Plus, I'm getting into the Animorphs series with my husband.

    Nilda, Junot Diaz.
    "The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all. It was a saying about noble figures in old Irish poems—he would give his hawk to any man that asked for it, yet he loved his hawk better than men nowadays love their bride of tomorrow. He would mourn a dog with more grief than men nowadays mourn their fathers.

    And that's how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy.
    "

    Ah, a master who died before his time. I love Gemmell's stuff. Legend is a great book, but the others in that Setting are equally as good. In particular, I highly recommend "The Quest for Lost Heroes." Great story! Abercrombie has somewhat taken up Gemmell's banner in some of his stories and I highly recommend "The Heroes" and the others in that same setting. Great characters!

    Yeah, I love every book in that setting Morkonan, I've read them all more times than I can remember. That bit in Quest for Lost Heroes...you know the one...it always get extremely dusty in my room for some reason when I get around to reading that bit.

    I maintain that Legend is the greatest video game/movie that never was.
