And Peyton Young's something about equitable distribution, but can't get the English title (I only have a translated version) without waking my cat. (The book's under my pillow.)

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

Started reading Before We Get Started by Bret Lott. Starts off kinda slow but once you get past the first chapter it's hard to put it down. Sometimes it feels like a motivational book but it provides an insight on writing throughout the whole text.

I just finished HHhH by Laurent Binet and spent my Apple e-book lawsuit payout on a dead tree copy of The Winter Fortress by Neal Bascomb. So, kind of a non-fiction WWII commando story theme going on here atm.

Currently got some Star Wars books to read, I don't remember what series it is, but it was recommended to me.
Then I've got some Star Wars comics from Dark Horse Comics that I need to get through as well.

I kinda love Star Wars.

Just finished "Annihilation" by Jeff Vandermeer. That's **** dope but I read it only in the daytime because I got scared easily and couldn't sleep. Probably will continue with the second book from trilogy.

Read a bunch of self-learning books, mainly procrastination-related. I'm having problems getting stuff done because I ALWAYS find an excuse. I hate that & it's starting to make my life quite ****ty due to making future plans with my GF and me not following through.

Been focusing more on programming books because of starting to get into freelancing. Want to buy "Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby" by Sandy Metz and waiting on my colleague to give me "The RSpec Book" so I can learn a bit more about testing.

Great books! My old college roommate gave me a 3-in-1 edition and it took a while to plow through. The ending was peculiar and unsatisfying, but then so was everything else .....

I am partway through this behemoth right now. If you read the whole wikipedia entry you might be able to skip the book:

Finally getting around to Neuromancer by William Gibson.

Gibson definitely had a vision, this narrative is a fantastic read to say the least. I never read the complete book, but it's something that I'm definitely going to do in the near future, I love the theme so Neuromancer is a must.

What book are you on? It took me a while to finish the series as well. It can be overwhelming at times. It gets easier after subsequent read-throughs. :P If you ever feel burnt out, I'd suggest switching back and forth between audio book and book or even checking out GRRM's novella series: The Tales of Dunk and Egg, set in the same universe just a few generations before the events in ASoIaF.

Hows Diamond Dogs/Turquoise Days?

Good but very different, set in Revelation Space universe.

Diamond Dogs is ultra-creepy with considerable death and obsession and body-mutilation ("enhancement").
Frankly, although Reynolds is a master in that macabre realm, it sometimes gets to be too much for me.

Turquoise Days deals with the Pattern Jugglers, who fascinate me and I wish that he would delve into their realm more.

PS - I am currently reading the gigantic tome "The Better Angels of Our Nature" by Steven Pinker and it is awesome and uplifting - a rare optimistic look at the future.

Sounds almost like dead space. I might pick it up its fairly cheap on amazon.

The better angles sounds nice, I just re read 1984 before i started on the dark tower, wouldn't hurt to have a nice uplifting read.

The better angles sounds nice,

In a later review for The Guardian, written when the book was shortlisted for the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, Tim Radford wrote, "in its confidence and sweep, the vast timescale, its humane standpoint and its confident world-view, it is something more than a science book: it is an epic history by an optimist who can list his reasons to be cheerful and support them with persuasive instances.... I don't know if he's right, but I do think this book is a winner."

Bill Gates wrote that "Steven Pinker shows us ways we can make those positive trajectories a little more likely. That's a contribution, not just to historical scholarship, but to the world." He considers it one of the most important books he's ever read. On the BBC program Desert Island Discs, he also selected this as the book he would take with him to a deserted island.

Clive Cookson, reviewing it in the Financial Times, called it "a marvelous synthesis of science, history and storytelling, demonstrating how fortunate the vast majority of us are today to experience serious violence only through the mass media."
And here is a whole new pinnacle of dumb:
"DO NOT VOTE IN THE GEORGIA RUNOFFS, THE DEEP STATE WILL BE COLLECTING EVERYONE'S INFO. THIS IS A CHARADE, MEANT TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE WHO DON'T VOTE DEMOCRAT. STAY HOME. OSSOFF AND WARNOCK ARE A SMALL PRICE TO PAY."

Confessions of an Economic Hitman. Really interesting stuff about how the US keeps poor countries in debt by offering them a way out of Third World Living. How the government controls invisible money and puppets other countries politics via resources and debt. It is not some tin-foil-hat conspiracy **** either, this is written by a guy who lays awake in bed at night trying to come to terms with what he has done to make his mass fortune. Good read, great eye-opener. Not that educated people don't already have a jist of this kind of thing, but this book gives you exacting and dirty details.


Also don't forget to pick up The Man Who Knew Infinity and check out the film coming out on Bluray and Netflix on Aug. 23.
It's a true story about a brilliant Indian mathematician who started from an impoverished background in India and was plucked out of obscurity to change the world.

One of my favorites.  :thumb:

I'm fighting through "Ancillary Justice" the first book in a series. I find it a little far fetched for me to follow so i'm pretty sure book 1 is where I abandon ship on this. I did the same with "Her majesty's dragon" the first book in a series that I had high hopes for - Napoleon era war ships and adding dragons.. unfortunately book 1 was 300 pages of nothing, 10 pages of battle, and 100 more pages of nothing. Probably the most boring book i've ever read. No thats not true, but close. I did finish book 2 of The Expanse... loved it just as much as book1. Those guys are really amazing writers. Also working on a book called "Symptoms of Being Human" by Jeff Garvin. A friend of mines brother in law wrote it about a gender fluid teen. Seems well thought out.

Extremely generic choice, but reading through Huck Finn at the moment. I just love the attention to detail Twain had towards getting the dialogue of the characters right down to their very accents. Even though some of the reading is a tad bit hard to follow, the book is still amazingly fun to read!

In addition to the comics I'm reading, I just started Murakami's Wind Up Bird Chronicles. I used to read a **** ton but stopped for a while only to have picked it up again recently. I'm also listening to Diskworld on audio book while drifting off to sleep which makes for some great dreaming fodder.

I've really enjoyed all of these books and am eagerly awaiting "Babylon's Ashes", the next in the series (Dec 6 release date here in the US). I've had a few letdowns in the Honor Harrington series and The Expanse series reinvigorated my taste for swashbuckling SciFi.

That's quite possible, tho I didn't start because of ratings or recommendations - it was more-less random stumbling across. To make it worse, I am enjoying it.

Currently reading "Life" by Keith Richards and it is amazingly good. Deeply insightful along with the "wild and crazy" stuff.

Yes, I have them all and read them all. I don't think they're that bad as long as you temper your expectations and don't expect them to be on par with the original series. They're a nice and easy read. But read them after you've read the originals.
