I've been rereading Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett, but next I'm going to get into Axiom's End by Lindsay Ellis. Aliens in the mid 2000s just sounds right up my alley.

I've never read anything by Terry Pratchett, but I've heard good things about him. How is he?

Right now, I'm reading Jane Eyre for the fourth time. I just love it so much!!! For a long time it was my favourite book, though I think the Jane Austen books I've read recently might have overtaken it; I'm not sure about that.

I'm a huge fan of both fantasy and satire, so Pratchett is one of my favorite writers along with Douglas Adams. They're very much in the same vein. The Discworld series spans... 40-ish books I want to say, but they're very easy to pick up out of order as well. There's an expansive cast of characters so there's a story for everyone somewhere in there I'd say.

Iv been binge reading recently!

  • Lots of Asimov Scifi books I mention in this thread!
  • Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke - a scifi classic about aliens who arrive and turn earth into a "utopia"
  • The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan - this is a 1600s religious book and its a slog, but Im interested in it from a cultural history context.
  • Mark Twain’s Speeches - I read these on and off; I really love most of Twains writing and should read more.
  • Youth by Asimov - Just finished this; it was pretty short but enjoyable - kinda like a Goosebumps episode!
  • Algorithms to Live By - by Brian Christian - Non fiction talking about applying computer science algorithms to everyday life; its a nice casual way to freshen up on algorithms I should have studied more in college  :tongue:
