    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    It's funny, I'm about 2/3 of the way through and I thought the beginning was the best part. Everyone talks about how slow it is but I loved it. After the Hayholt I felt it got less interesting. I realize I'm in the minority here.
  2. I'm reading The Dragonbone Chair and thought the same thing during the part where Simon was escaping the Hayholt. It was trippy and reminded me a lot of the journey underneath Ishterebenth or whatever it's called.
  3. Tad actually has a fairly respectable section at my local B&N. I'd guess about a shelf and a half, by official measurements. I know when I bought the last copy of The Dragonbone Chair last year, it was restocked when I went back in the next week.

    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    I also think it would be weird to bang your good friend's daughter, but that's just me

  7. Smokestacks? Has Angland really come that far? Edit: Well yeah I guess it's in the first sentence of the blurb. This should be interesting.

    The Voice Inside My Head vs Any Other Voice

    I agree with you--people heap praises on some of these audio book readers but they don't do much for me. Maybe it's because I read more slowly than most people and I sub-vocalize more.

    Popular Book series you’ve tried and failed to get into:

    I always have to at least try starting with the first book in barely-connected-series, but if that doesn't work I'll skip ahead to a more popular book. We'll how K.J. Parker goes. I read somewhere that all of his books are in the same universe, and that the Fencer trilogy can be a tough read. But that is where I'm starting.

    Yeah my dad actually enjoyed Prince of Nothing for the most part, but he said it got too weird by the end of the trilogy. I don't him just pretend there are no more books, lol.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Erikson later said that it won't be out in November and he doesn't know where that date came from.
  12. I can't wait until people start asking if they can start reading Abercrombie with the new trilogy
  13. I didn't know Islington started out self published. Michael J. Sullivan is a big one and far from gimdark.

    Mieville made me feel empty

    I'm in the middle of The City and the City right now and....eh, it's okay. It's certainly not blowing me away like PSS and The Scar did. King Rat was pretty good too but not a standout.
