Well, I just started on "The Monk" for the third time. Not that I had difficulty getting through it either of the previous times but something else got in the way.

Yeah, he is very good I wish the third book would come soon, or even info about the progress. Then again I might have been spoiled by Robin Hobb's generally predictable and trustworthy release schedule Shrug

Recently read Quantum Thief trilogy (or Jan Le Flambeur trilogy) by Hannu Rajaniemi. Really good scifi though a bit hard to get into at first. Now began Pushing Ice from Reynolds but haven't really gotten into it much.

Reading The Etched City by K. J. Bishop. Loving the setting so far, though the writing is proving to be a bit tiring for a not-native speaker. Lots of new words I haven't heard before, like bathos - it's the contrary of pathos! And it sounds so silly!
The English language truly is full of wonders.

Most of Reynolds' stuff is dry at first, give it a bit; I really enjoyed it.

Wheel of Time, again. Only made it to book 6 last time around before uni consumed all my free time, so I'm giving it another go. At book 4 now and it's still one of the best series ever written.

Reading through these too, I love them. Though not always post-scarcity, Kim Stanley Robinson's books are great, particularly '2312'.

Read Hyperion by Dan Simmons first if you haven't though. One of the ultimate sci-fi books, and not too big and heavy to get into.

Universal Harvester sounds like a creepy title, what's it about?

I'm re-reading Blindsight (sci-fi written by a marine biologist). Seeing like a State: How certain schemes to improve the human condition have failed, City of Quartz: Excavating the Future in Los Angeles. About to start Rainbows End on recommendations and re-read Accelerando because of https://twitter.com/cstross/status/831668291944976384

that's funny, because it's actually the name of an agricultural manufacturing company. it's about this kid in the middle of iowa in 2000 that notices that there's some weird stuff going on with some of the tapes at the video store he works at.

Blindsight is very good.

The Southern Reach trilogy borderline creepy, but more just straight mystery sci-fi. Very very very difficult to put down.

Blindsight is very good.

Blindsight is one of my favorite novels of all time!

Right now I'm reading Children of Time - great exploration of the use of cryogenics and evolving life over time. Long but fascinating.

Just picked up The Icelandic Sagas. Very inspiring stuff. Nothing like the older legends, in my opinion.
