Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction.

And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Just started into the next book with Sevy...

Shades Of War  

 

I enjoyed the first one, and the author takes some daring turns in it.  Which I really liked.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Ok so I have been reading a lot lately...just finished Blood Blade earlier today...started Feed and have Wool downloaded for when I'm through with it...think I'm oing to break Wool up as I. Bought the omnibus version...I will read a book or two and break it up with one of the 125 books I have on my nook wish list Back to blood blade...I did enjoy it a different twist on vamps and werewolves, think I will be sticking with that series (yes I know that series is more paranormal fiction)

I L-O-V-E those novels – fantastic trilogy!

 


Me too, Caprice – arguably one of the elite sagas that helped spur this current zombie fiction rennaissance!

Old Man's War. Somehow I haven't read it yet, and it looks like this one is going to go really quickly.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Older stuff:

Titus Groan

Gods of Mars

Conan of Cimmeria

 

Newer stuff:

Verdant Skies

 

And it's about 50/50 e-book versus paperback, just as a side note. Still haven't gone totally electronic. Too expensive and too many worries with lost data/back ups/etc to want to go entirely paperless.

And Another Thing... (Hitchhiker's Guide Series #6)  

 

It is alright, but it doesn't "feel" like it was written by Douglas Adams. Eoin tries but it doesn't come out quite right.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just finished the 4th book in The Mortal Instruments Series.  One think I like about this series is that the teenagers don't complain all the time.  :smileyhappy:  They take off for long walks, get in trouble, and then fight it out when they get rescued.  The romance is kept at a level that does not invoke nausea.  ;p

My son brought home Nightshade, by Andrea Cremer.  The wolves are still control freaks, but the magic users are interesting.

Today I bought The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore.  Also got a great deal on an autographed book that was purchased by my local booksellers while on a trip to the Edinburgh Booksellers convention.  The True Adventures of the World's Greatest Stuntman, by Vic Armstrong.  This man is from Edinburgh originally, and was autographing for free!  This man has been a stuntman since the 70's; the foreword is by Steven Spielberg! OK, maybe this one is for moviegeeks, but this guy has played Indy Jones,Superman, James Bond, and Spiderman.  He helped Arnold with his horseriding skills in Conan, and Mel Gibson in Hamlet.  There is a picture of his stunt team for Starship Troopers, my favorite Heinlein movie.  And he worked in the LOTR trilogy!!

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just finished a couple SciFi/Fantasy books.

The first book is Lay Saints by Adam Connell. I really liked this book about telepaths who use their talent to make money. They can actually change the thoughts you have. Definitely recommend this. It is 99 cents now as a eBook.  I would add the Product Link for this book, but it just doesn't work. Be sure to find this book.

The second book was Prince of Hazel and Oak by John Lenahan. This was a fun, light fantasy book. I listened to the audio read by the author, which was very good.

The Dig  

 

 

Mountain Muse

A really good book is much like an artichoke. As you peel back each page of the of the book, you get closer and closer to the succulent heart of the story.

Robotech 3-in- 1  

 

 


Actually turns this beloved, if ham-fistedly cobbled together, animated series into a worthy science fiction saga.
