Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

OK finished reading "The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker" last night at 9:30 pm in the Laundromat.

 

Searched fro and bought 

 

The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker 

 

via 3G (so I guess I answered the 3G/WiFI debate for my case) and was reading it by 9:35.

 

I love my NOOK.

Currently reading:

 

 

 

Emails from an **bleep** 

 

 

Needed a break from "real" books and wanted something short and fun.  This one is a little too short but it IS funny (and a little mean).

The above is based upon my opinion... yours may vary!

Stick with it.  The Dark Tower series is one of the most underrated series out there.  It is epic in scope.  Totally engrossing.  Not normally what you would think of when you think Stephen King but absolutely crucial to read if you love King.

 

I can't believe this series is over looked by Hollywood in the wake of all the other popular series titles being optioned.  That is just fine in my opinion, this series is such a purely wonderful literary work Hollywood will only ruin it.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance 

 Currently reading this modern classic voluntarily.  Taking my sweet old time with it to best try and absorb the material.  Much more weighty then I had expected.

 

 

 

Atomic Lobster (Serge Storms Series #10) 

 

 

Going to follow up with this summer feeling read.  Got earlier as a free download!  I haven't read any of this series yet.  I'm hoping it won't be that big a deal this late in the game.

Change in plans:

Swimsuit  Really liked it but the ending seemed rushed...

 

Now on to: 

 

Whiplash (FBI Series #14)  Yeah, we won the battle!

 

Then it will be (probably tomorrow!):

The Passage

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I just started reading

 

 

The City and the City

  

 

 

only I'm reading the pdf version that came in the Hugo Voter's Packet rather than the B&N ebook.

 

The formatting is a little off on my nook, but I'm managing... :smileyhappy:

At least try to get to Wizard and Glass (book 4), which is (IMO) Stephen King's best work and one of the best novels of the 20th century. After that, the series really goes downhill as King forced himself to finish it after his car accident.

 

And Ron Howard is reportedly trying to get a Dark Tower movie trilogy into production.

I read Swimsuit yesterday.  I was also expecting the ending to drag out a little more.  After reading it, I wanted something light to read!

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I agree, stick with Dark Tower Series.  I remember The Gunslinger being decent, but the rest blew me away.  It just gets better and better.  I read it over the years as it came out and had to wait for each new one.  So by the time I got to the last book, I had them in my life for so long that I was sad to finish it all. Truly EPIC.

 

I'm currently reading

The Face by Dean Koontz: Download Cover

The Face : A Novel

 

Brand new to Nook.  Have some free ones lined up next.  Thanks for posting this thread.  Fun to get an idea of what everyone is reading.   Have already added some of the things posted here to my wish list!

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

Having downloaded His Majesty's Dragon on a Free Friday, I am now almost finished with the third book in the series.   After reading the entire set, I expect to re-read some of the free classics that were available this week-end next.  Have to say, I also enjoyed the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest as well.  :smileyhappy:
