  • A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin.
  • @Pot Poe:  The Wizard & Glass is probably the best entry in the Dark Tower Series.  If I had my way, the series would stop there.  I don't read King anymore, but I might have to check out the new one if, as you say, it's a continuation of Wizard & Glass.
  • I've just discovered the Game of Thrones TV series. I think you guys are onto something up there^^^

    A Storm of Swords-R. R. Martin
  • Re-reading Laurel K. Hamilton's Skin Trade......though I'm not sure why other then hoping it might suck less the second time around.

    Clearly a trend is forming here and I'm getting addicted to this show, that's like 4 recommendations above. I guess Song of Ice and Fire is first? Its rumored Sean Bean is a snufftaker, we need him here.

    @Mr. Nose not a contuination on Wizards, just Roland telling his band another story; one from his childhood i have heard. I'am still waiting on my library to have it, due to all my disposible income earmarked for snuff.

    The Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson...actually, re-reading it. And well worth the re-read, too.

     Was reading this thing I wrote. I hope someone else reads it too cause I'am very proud of it.

  • Just finished Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan.
  • The Inferno by Dante Alighieri
  • Currently finishing off "The Bible."  I figured that despite not believing it, it was probably one of the more important books I could read.  After all, it's only left its influence all over Western thought, culture, music, history and art.  Only have around another 200 pages left in it, then I can move on to something else.

    Next book is probably going to be "The Basic Works of Aristotle."  I picked up a couple of books by the same author @Sinister Topiary is reading, Slavoj Zizek, and while I enjoyed his writing when he was talking pop culture, his philosophy writings leave me totally lost due to my lack of proper vocabulary for it.  I decided I was going to start off with the old Greek and Roman philosophers, and try and work my way up through things.  I figure by the time I get up to contemporary philosophers, I should know the appropriate terms.

    For competition, I suddenly got the urge to read "Romance of the Three Kingdoms," yesterday, after playing some Dynasty Warriors 7.

    @Vito445  Which version are you reading?  "The Divine Comedy" is one of my favorite books, but I felt like the footnotes in the Penguin edition made it a lot more enjoyable.  It was pretty fun reading about all the references he put in there to his political and theological enemies.
  • @shikitohno I am reading the Signet Classics version, is has quite extensive footnotes placed at the end of every chapter, can't do without them, especially in a translation.
  • Footnotes are always helpful for stuff like that.  As I recall, the Penguin version in "The Portable Dante" just has them at the bottom of the page, which I find a lot more convenient.  A couple months ago, I finished reading a copy of "The Master and Margarita," which had all the footnotes in one section at the back of the book.  Would drive me mad while I was reading it, but they made the book a lot more enjoyable.

    Rereading Brave New World
  • Game of Thrones
  • Botchan by Natsume Soseki
  • Fearless Golf by Dr. Gio Valiante
  • @Xander Song of Ice and Fire is the novel series name. GofT, same name as the show is the first book.
  • XanderXander Member
    Yeah I'm going to get those SoIE books and read them. Seems to be a strong trend towards it here for sure Fantasy has been disappointing to me ever since Tolkien. This seems something new though, the show is fascinating me, I guess because I like all the political intrigue,tactics, etc, and its not too heavy on the fantastical element.
    Need to read some Zizek too, smart dude for sure, but I've been putting of reading serious books lately.
  • @shikitohno: As a philosophy grad, I'm not sure I would recommend reading Aristotle first to get a start in philosophy.  Aristotle's "works" are actually lecture notes from his student that were translated back a forth a few times over the centures.  They are notoriously difficult to read, though immensely fascinating if you can stomach it.  If you are wanting to get a good ground in philosophy by reading on your own, I'd recommend starting in the middle.  Check out Descartes, Locke, Hume, Leibniz & Hobbes.  If you really want to start at the Greeks, check out Plato or get a good collection of the Pre-Socratics.  Don't get me wrong, I love Aristotle, but he's not nearly as approachable as some of the others.

    I just finished Clash of Kings and am waiting for a copy of Storm of Swords.
    In the meantime I'm reading Darwin's Dangerous Idea by Daniel Dennett
  • Thomas Hobbes is buried 7 miles from me, in a hamlet called Ault Hucknall. George Stephenson is buried in Chesterfield, in a church just off the "doughnut" roundabout, as everybody calls it. And somewhere on my grandma's side we are related to Florence Nightingale. Sorry to be totally OT, just thought I'd have a ramble lol.

    I've seen a documentary called Darwin's Dangerous Idea didn't know it was also a book, I'm going to look into getting that one.
  • Just finished Under the Dome by Stephen King...outstanding story.  When King is on his game there is no one better.

    @BigSnoot McSnuff  - You're right, Under the Dome was great.

    I'm about halfway through Stephen King's 11/22/63.
