OT What Are You Reading?

This enforced sequestration has really given me a chance to hit the bookshelves.

Currently reading the Acts of the Apostles, as well as excellent biographies of Jack Hargreaves and Stonewall Jackson.

What are you reading to pass the time?

    Right now I am reading 4th volume of Expanse series. Earth and Mars people from the future are using wormhole built by aliens to populate habitable planets in distant galaxies. Great novel for scifi fans!
    Theres also a show on Netflix based on that book, so I am looking forward to see it someday as well.
  • This Light in Oneself by Krishnamurti.
  • Lustrum by Robert Harris, Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett..
  • nytimes
  • Mason & Dixon by Thomas Pynchon
  • The instruction book for a new pressure cooker.
  • Rather charming biography of Jack Hargreaves I found on Kindle Unlimited.

    As long as you have fairly eclectic tastes, this service is worth your while. You'll almost never find the book you're looking for, but stand a great chance of finding a book tangentially related to the book you're looking to find.
  • Well... almost several years ago I started reading all books by Stephen King. But I didnt look at the bunch he almost wrote and also the other names he is writing.

    Mostly I read them in german. But some of his books I also used to read in english original language. The Dark Tower saga is still my favorite by SK.


  • Friars a muck by Sieg Linde. Short and slightly wierd.
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
  • Just started The Power and Glory by Graham Greene.
    Just finished Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck. Steinbeck is my comfort reading, like eating grilled cheese, or watching reruns of the Simpsons.
  • The Book of Matthew
  • I'm a big reader, but for some reason I haven't been reading much while on lockdown. A typical year I read 150-180 books but this year it looks like I'll be finishing 35.  I just started Octavia Butler's Kindred tonight.

    I'm looking forward to the newly released Ray Bradbury compilation Killer, Come Back to Me.  It's a collection of his crime fiction. I'll be honest, I didn't even know he wrote crime fiction, but it's one of my favorite genres in recent years.
  • Jadoo by John Keel
  • Mr. Mercedes by Mr. Stephen King
  • At the time I’m reading the Kalevala. A finish Epos. I‘m interested in old north mythology.

    Latest edition of In-Fisherman magazine just dying for the ice to form =((
  • Bundesliga by Ronald Reng. Really got into German football last year, it's a great read so far
  • Book of Genesis 
  • The Daily Telegraph
  • The Cyberiad by Stanislaw Lem

    As with most Lem I've read, it's playfully written. His writing is so bizarre in its ability to (often) make little sense in the micro, and PROFOUND sense in the macro.  He is a wordsmith in a tier all his own, as if Kierkegaard wrote fiction.  He is at many times prophetic, and always insightful into the baser motivations and proclivities of man.  Truly a remarkable brain.

    The Futurological Congress is still my favorite of his, though.

  • V. by Thomas Pynchon.
  • Austerlitz by W.G.Sebald
  • The Count of Monte Christo, what a ripping yarn it is too.
  • @Betty_BW  Mmm, The Count of Monte Cristo is dang near lascivious for those who enjoy the catharsis of a good revenge story.
  • @SHbickel how right you are. 
  • Working my way through the short stories of JG Ballard: sort of the Toque Cheese and Bacon of writers in that you love him or hate him, I've never met anyone who thought he was just OK!
