I'm always curious to hear what other fellow members are reading at the moment? Would be good to see your list. Link us to the books so we can check it out.
I've generally found you have to make time for it. I read on average about 3 books a week in the 300 page, paperback range. Obviously larger books (like the Norman Davies one mentioned above) take a little longer.fter you get into profession or at university it's hard to devote time to general books.
Audio books.Actually nor I read books as much as I used to 3-4 years earlier. After you get into profession or at university it's hard to devote time to general books. I can read a lot math related subjects but cannot force my mind to read off profession books. Hope it's temporary.
Well, I'll take a look at it. Most of the fantasy I see these days is poor quality compared to Tolkien's LOTR, Zelazny's Amber series, and the Conan novels and short stories.The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss--re-reading it, actually, since the second book in the series just came out, and my wife is almost finished with it.
For any of you who like alternate-world fantasy (a la Song of Ice and Fire, which I saw mentioned above, and which a lot of people seem to be reading now because of the HBO series), I highly recommend Rothfuss. The quality of his writing is several cuts above what you usually find in the genre.
