    What are you currently reading?

    I know that a good amount of the people here still practice that ancient art of reading, so what book are you currently reading?





    I just opened up...



    Really picks up the pace quickly. Didn't really want to put it down but I had to go to work...

    I just finished reading Wicked. . .I just don't know what to think. Not a story so much as a treatise on the nature of evil. It was . . . alright.

    reading this for about the 50th time



    greatest story ever told. two powerful states slugging it out for control. the romans being pushed to the brink but finally being led to victory by a man too young to hold any of the offices that come with imperium, but he is sent to spain with proconsular authority at the unheard of age of 25. he (and his younger brother lucius, who supported him throughout his entire career) proceeds to clear spain of three carthaginian armies after spectacular victories at new carthage, baecula and Ilipa, finally he is able to able to cross from sicily into africa, thrash carthage at the siege of utica and finally defeat hannibal head on at zama. publius cornelius scipio was the dude.

    that is a damn fine read, ron. should be a quick one too. the book to me is like listening to jazz, it just keeps falling forward into something new. i love the way there is not one single wasted word in the entire work. very spare prose and very little use of punctuation.

    Really enjoyed this book. It's a well-researched slice of London history during the post-fire reconstruction. Everything from how people socialised, childbirth to death, pharmacy, music and entertainment, ye olde fashion, restaurants, coffeehouses and taverns. Basically it is a reflection on London life in the 1700's and a pretty good read.

    Read the first Omnibus quite quickly.

    Didn't expect much from this but there is plenty chaos and skaven in it, which I like.
