    I prefer reading from an actual book, but for when you can't really walk down the road, head in a book, an audiobook is perfect.

    Also, has anyone her read the Shannara Chronicles?
    I think I tried. Is that the one with the kids in a postapocalyptic land, where only the main dude has a magic staff, and there are demons and shit?

    I got the first book, read it, and then the library didn't have the second, and I didn't wanna skip over that and head straight to the last, so I went "fuck it", and left it alone.

    That was the prequel. Pretty good, I'd say better personally.

    I suppose I can check the library for the second one, see if they've got it (farfetched as that seems right about now- the series has been out for how many years now?).

    Hmm, Spice and Wolf volume 4 (yes, the novel), and First Lord's Fury of the Alera Codex. Just finished Silver Borne of the Mercy Thompson series.

    And I found Wizard's First Rule to be tedious reading. And more than a little disjointed. Some things just seem to come out of left-field in it, and not in a good way. Still, the Rule itself is worth remembering.

    Newest Song of Ice and Fire.

    But I'm getting sidetracked with lots of manga. Oh wait, iirc a new Boogiepop recently came out. Shit, I forgot about that. Oh and another Lying Mii-kun too.

    Yeah, that's it, it just doesn't flow. I'm a speed reader, so normally I would finished it by now, but I can't seem to get interested.

    And I know it's not me, since I just finished reading the 39 Clues series. Now that was interesting, normally I wouldn't bother reading something like that, the only reason I did was because I saw Rick Riordan wrote some of it, and I'm a fan of his work. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, it was much better than I thought it would have been.

    The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.

    Oh hell yes. Best thing I have read in months and one of the contenders for best book of the year imo.

    Anyone here read the Windup Girl? I've recently come into some money, so I'm thinking of buying it, since I heard it won the Hugo Award.

    the last like, 6 books of that series end up being about 200 pages of the same old magic, and 500-600 pages of listening to richard rahl just bitch about whatever today's moral of the story is. His preaching can go on for 50+ pages at times and he will do that multiple times a book.

    I borrowed yesterday Diana Wynne Jones' Charmed life (in Finnish), and now I'm gonna go to bed and read it before starting to sleep. I always need to read in bed before sleeping, at least a little bit, if I'm not dead tired!

    You mean it sounds boring? I read only non-boring books in bed.
