What book are you currently reading?

Post by AneeshTheGreat » Sat Nov 13, 2010 6:10 am

Now, we have a "What movie did you last watch" thread and a "What are you listening to right now" thread. I'm surprised that there isn't a "What are you reading?" thread, esp. considering that this IS a forum based on a book series...

So, what book ARE you reading right now? I'm just finished "Shall We Tell The President?", obviously by Jeffrey Archer, and will soon be moving on to "Bombay Girls, Bombay Rains" by Anirban Bose.

I reread the Bitterbynde series not long ago, by Celia Dart-Thornton. (I think that's the lady's name)

Right now I'm reading The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. Before that I read Twelve by Jasper Kent. Apparently November is reading-books-that-take-place-in-Russia month for me. I have a love affair with Russian stuff, specifically the language.

Not quite a physical book, I'm reading mostly webfiction lately, but anyway, I just finished Three Worlds Collide.

Webfiction in general is very much hit and miss, you have to be willing to shift through a lot of chaff to find the wheat (or have somewhere that consistently gives you good recommendations), but it's worth it when you find the good stuff. Like, say, Yudkowsky (the author of Three Worlds Collide). He's a genius. Granted, mostly his genius manifests in other subjects, but his writing is pretty great too.

In other webfictiony news, currently reading Mortimer Gaunt.

Mortimer Gaunt? Could he have a more foreboding name?
