    Harhar! Finally have my grubby little paws on The Long Earth (Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter) and Dodger (Terry Pratchett). Trying to decide which to read first... Any recommendations?

    A Dance With Dragons, book five of A Song of Ice and Fire.

    I'm trying to stall it a bit, since I don't want it to end Only a 100 pages left. Then again, there are still 2 books left and the show too.

    [Books] What kind of stuff are you reading?

    What do the folks at MMO-Champ like to read?

    I'm a big fan of Sci-Fi & Fantasy works and have even started working on my own writing project and blog. (milesbooks on tumblr)
    I like fast paced stuff with action and adventure as well as more suspenseful/horror type stuff. Anything with a well written combat sequence I enjoy reading as well.
    I've read tons by Salvatore, Stephen King, and dozens of other authors whose names don't come to mind atm.

    I used to read some sci-fi, even Warcraft books for a while, but these days, school forces me to read more and more scientific texts (linguistics and literary studies). Kinda hard to force myself to read something else afterwards, even though there are so many books waiting for me...

    I wonder, how do people manage to read serious literature in their 20s? There's just so much to do!

    My latest ones are both Vespasian books by Robert Fabbri (can't wait for the third book to come out in January) and now I'm mentally preparing myself for The Hobbit by reading the book and now that's finished I'm reading LotR. I do quite like reading, I got myself a Kindle not too long ago and it's just made reading more enjoyable. So nice to just hold a flat little tablet instead of a book the size of a brick!

    I mostly like fantasy books with the occasional historical fiction thrown in. After LotR most likely going to get Game of Thrones.

    I'm not much of a fan when it comes to reading...

    But I do like the occasional adventure ..

    Right now, I'm reading two books, or a novel, The Walking Dead and some other book with a NSFW name.

    I am much more a fan of sci-fi then fantasy. Reading Neuromancer by William Gibson right now. After reading Ready Player One (great book btw) I was looking for a bit more serious cyberpunk book and decided to go with one of the tent poles of the genre. I have read it before, but it was many years ago and I barely remember it. Might go with Stephenson's Snow Crash next but I am not sure.

    Whatever I can get my hands on, i try to read at least 3-4 books every week. Specialization is for insects:P

    "Red Country" by Joe Abercrombie.

    Not really a fan of Westerns, but Abercrombie is awesome and I'm about 20% through the book and
    He already set it up for a confrontation between Caul Shivers and Logen Ninefingers. Of course, since it is Abercrombie, they probably end up becoming blood brothers and killing all the 'bad' guys.

    Will recieve Oil! and The Jungle this coming monday. As I've grown interest for Upton Sinclair's style of books, I plan to buy a couple more of his works; King Coal, namely, and more. Anyone have experience of Upton Sinclair? Which books are entertaining and worthy of reading?

    I've just read the 90 pages of introduction by the translator which consists solely of context and to be honest I'm loving it. For the rest I'm going to start on a lot of classics, just got me a BB Playbook and stuffing it with free eBooks now:
    - The Odyssey of Homer
    - The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
    - A Tale of Two Cities
    - Ulysses (The book most people stopped reading before the ending ever? Sounds like fun!)
    - Star Wars EU since Disney said I shouldn't bother waiting for the movie
    - Dracula - Bram Stoker

    Any other suggestions for classics that are old enough to have lived beyond their copyright? (I do prefer my books free)

    Started reading The Walking Dead, like a week ago, only read one book. *.*

    I need to read more, it's good and I like it a lot, I recommend it to anyone, especially people who like zombie stuff and a good story too.
