What are you reading right now?

Similar to the Epic Playlist thread, except with books/other literature.

Anyhow, as for books, I'm currently rereading the Riftwar series by Raymond Feist. I'm on Silverthorn, book 3 of the Riftwar Saga.

For pony stuff, I'm reading Guilt and Hate.

I'm also going to mention that I read a lot. And by a lot, I mean my bookshelves in my room are overflowing. And I've read nearly every book I own. And all this reading has easily transitioned into ponyfiction. I may also be slightly crazy roll

Re: What are you reading right now?

Outside of pony, I'm (slowly) reading Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge, which is fantastic if you're into contemporary music. Or oral histories, I guess.

Inside of a pony, it is very dark HO HO HO

No. I'm currently working my way through catching up on Our First Steps. I've also got the latest chapters of The First Week of Winter and My Little Metro, which I hope to catch up on over the weekend.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I've been juggling all sorts of books during summer, like Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey, Blindsight by Peter Watts, and Metro 2033 by Dimitry Glukhovsky.

For pony, I'm all about Tales of Harmony. It's like I'm playing a Tales game... with poneh.

Well, since I don't read fan fiction, this will be strictly normal fiction for me.

Currently reading John Dies at the End by David Wong (Jason Pargin).

Re: What are you reading right now?

A few days ago I finished reading American Colonies by Alan Taylor, an excellent book about colonial North America from the Spanish conquistadors to the Revolutionary War, including a lot of good information about the role of Native Americans and slaves, which are often overlooked in books about colonial history.  I highly recommend it if you are interested in the subject.

I'm now reading I Was a Kamikaze by Ryuji Nagatsuka, about the author's time in the Japanese air force and training to be a kamikaze pilot before the war ended, thus putting a stop to that plan.  It's not really that well written (or maybe it's just poorly translated), but it's still pretty interesting.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I'm not reading anything at the current time, mainly because I'm waiting for my authors to release new books. Last book I read was called Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi. But the series I follow right now are The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and then the Dexter novels by Jeff Lindsay. I love the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett.

As far as pony goes, I'm one of those crazy people that can't get enough Fallout: Equestria so I'm reading Project Horizons as well (which is now longer than the original...). I got a couple of others on backlog that I need to catch up on but Project Horizons is usually my number 1 priority.

And would this Mog World happen to be by a Ben "Yahtzee" Crowshaw?

Re: What are you reading right now?

besides pony, I'm re-reading American Gods


Why is it anyone lives in Ponyville? its seems to be a disaster magnet, its a half an hours from a forest of nasties, 2 hours from a place called ghastly gorge which has such a lovely name, and less than a days run from the very gates of hell.  Property values must suuuuuck.

Procrastinating with ponies, again.

Re: What are you reading right now?

Outside pony, I just finished the Eragon series, probably going to read Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol' next.

Pony-related, all I'm following is 'Anthropology', and I have about 8 months of 'Antipodes' to catch up on.

Its alright, I have yet to finish it. Otherwise I heard that supposedly the ending is amazingly lack luster, but I have yet to get that far

Re: What are you reading right now?

Currently rereading Orson Scott Card's Characters & Viewpoint and then probably his How to write Science Fiction & Fantasy - they were both a great influence on me during early HS & college when I was more into creative writing. Been a while since I've read them and I wanted to reread them before working on a short FanFic I have planned.

Other than that still reading Project Horizons as it goes along and massively enjoying it (especially the massive amount of character development Blackjack has gone through.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I still need to finish the Empty room, I started it and got all caught up when the author moved and then I never got around to reading the updates when he continued it.
