What Are You Reading

Discussion in 'The Reading Room' started by Lancealot, Aug 13, 2006.

  1. I just started the Dresden FIles by Jim Butcher. Kind of Sam SPade meets Harry Potter. A rather enjoyable bit of fluff.
     
  2. These days I'm reading a two-volume compilation of Raymond Chandler. The first volume has many of his "pulp" short stories.

    I need to stop messing around on the computer and read more books.
     

  3. I have thought about picking up some of his works
     
  4. I got them from Amazon. Most of his novels and short stories in a two-volume hardbound set.

    I'm reading a fascinating book called Infamous Aircraft, about aeroplanes (and airships) that weren't exactly a joy to fly under all conditions. Thoroughly enjoying it too.
     
  6. I'm reading The Count of Monte Cristo and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
     
  7. OK, Doc, there's another book I have to buy. Gee, thanks!

    Anything that mentions the Tarrant Tabor is pretty much a must-buy.
     
  8. G. Fink-Nottle

    I just started "Freedom From Fear" by David M. Kennedy, It's a history of the US from the depression to the end of WWII. The book is about five inches thick so it'll be awhile before it's finished.
     
  9. I very much enjoyed The Count. I hate the mvoie was not closer to it.
     
  10. I thought the movie was okay, until I actually read most of the book and saw it again, then I thought it was pretty poor.

    I got another movie version not long ago, I haven't watched it yet, it looked a little bit more accurate. But still not true to the book.
     
  11. Which version is it?
     
  12. Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded by Simon Winchester.

    I'm reading On the Waterfront, the Pulitzer prize winning articles that inspired the film.

    I know: I'm a bad, bad man. Fortunately it's a thing that seems to work for me. ;)

    I am reading "The Autobiography of Henry VIII" by Margaret George. I love reading anything about England's monarchs, and mysteries.

    The Virgin Queen: Elizabeth I, Genius of the Golden Age by Christopher Hibbert. Also those trashy Phillipa Gregory books - love those.
