I just ran out of Medieval/Ancient Rome novels so I'm going through KayEm's copy of The Godfather.



It's pretty good too - I've never seen the film all the way through but will definitely do so when I've finished the book.

Currently Reading "Pale Blue Dot" by Carl Sagan.


In a tour of our solar system, galaxy and beyond, Cornell astronomer Sagan meshes a history of astronomical discovery, a cogent brief for space exploration and an overview of life-from its origins in the oceans to humanity's first emergence to a projected future where humans "terraform" and settle other planets and asteroids, Earth having long been swallowed by the sun. Maintaining that such relocation is inevitable, the author further argues that planetary science is of practical utility, fostering an interdisciplinary approach to looming environmental catastrophes such as "nuclear winter" (lethal cooling of Earth after a nuclear war, a widely accepted prediction first calculated by Sagan in 1982). His exploration of our place in the universe is illustrated with photographs, relief maps and paintings, including high-resolution images made by Voyager 1 and 2, as well as photos taken by the Galileo spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope and satellites orbiting Earth, which show our planet as a pale blue dot. A worthy sequel to Sagan's Cosmos

Well, sadly to say, I'm not reading much of...*cough* worth.

Almost done re-reading the Legends trilogy out of the Dragonlance series. Venerable, I know. And kinda awkward, but it's...okay. Good read, but not great. Now, Stormblade and Vinas Solamnus? Great fantasy reads. All Dragonlance.

I'd be corign through some delightful cyberpunk, but I lent out both Bodyguard by Dietz and Burning Chrome by Gibson. Re-read the entire Last Legion series already this summer, as well as most of my Shadowrun books. Shamefully, reading is what I've been doing instead of writing.


Bought up four of the Hunter: The Reckoning creedbooks (Visionary, Martyr, Avenger and Defender, if you're wondering). White Wolf certainly knows how to create good fiction....even if it's only fluff.

I'm waiting to see if I can grab more Gibson.

PS.

Amuk- Try TheBook of the Five Rings by Musashi or Angry White Pyjamas by Twigger.

And Dostoyevsky's a beast to get through, but worth it if you can mange.

Pattern Recognition by William Gibson.

Pattern Recognition owned me.

It will own you.


Get Neuromancer and Idoru too. In fact, Gibson is blessed. There isn't something he's touched that's bad, except the Johnny Mnemoic movie.

I am a fan of books like those from Agatha Christie, Erle Stanley Gardner, etc. but the 2 last things I read where the Quran and the American Constitution.

I really like to deny ignorance.
