    I start way too many books, but as of late, I've narrowed it down to these three:
    - A Feast for Crows
    - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
    - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

    Warriors by Ted Bell. Picked it up at the airport since I was done with the book I brought with me, so far it's ok, not a great read but entertaining enough. Not a big fan of the writer's style.

    Question for you guys, how to do sort your library? I am in the middle of reorganizing mine and I normally put everything in alphabetical order but I find it visually unpleasant with books of different shape. First world problem right here

    Restless Empire: China and the World Since 1750

    Because why read about sacred groves, red weddings, and epic wars when I can subject myself to a damn history lesson? :lol:

    Still, it's kind of interesting reading about China's relations with other countries. They really were full of themselves back then, but just about every country with power thought it was the best back then.

    I finished my book on China. Having just finished covering recent Chinese history, I decided to look for a book on ancient Chinese history, but no luck, so I settled for a book about the crusades called "The Race for Paradise". What made this one interesting was that the Muslim empire was the focus this time instead of Europe. Still, lots of comparisons are drawn between the two groups.

    Ancient Egypt: Everyday Life in the Land of the Nile

    Pretty interesting. Not a bad religion either. Basically, if you're not a priest, then you have no religious obligations except to not be a dick to other people. No "God's watching you and judging you every day" nonsense. Just, don't do bad things to other people, or to any of the shrines or statues, and your heart won't be devoured by a beast when it's weighed on the scale of judgment.
    Of course, their weird concept of the afterlife means you may be forced to build a pyramid.

    Just started reading "The Last Wish" by Andrzej Sapkowski, which is the first of two short story collections about The Witcher, for those of you who are familiar with the video games. Within the first four pages, the main character has sex with a woman in a temple and murders three men in a tavern. Needless to say, I'm already hooked

    Finished reading The Martian right before the movie came out. Great book. Part dark comedy, part believable sci-fi. Movie was meh.

    Started reading The Black Company series, I like the moral ambiguity of the mercenary company.

    Hey memeslayer, guess what I just finished?

    I actually liked the Daenerys chapters, although I spend decent chunks of them going "Oh honey, no". The Reek chapters, though? Uggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh. Those were awful.

    Reading Book of the New Sun for the second time, Gene Wolfe. There are those who say you get a lot more out of the book as you read it again; I'm finding this report extremely true

    I have it sitting on my bookshelf. Looking at it right now. :D I had to special order it at the bookstore, but that was years ago. I'm currently going through the old 1994 Chinese TV show on youtube. I started the show a long time ago and never finished so I had to start over.

    Right now I am reading The Myst Reader. I'm just a little bit into The Book of Ti'ana.

    I'm currently reading (actually, listening to it on Audible) "The Fell Sword" by Miles Cameron. It's the second book in the series. The first was "The Red Knight". Both books are really good military fantasy with a focus on knights and chivalry.

    I'm slowly working my way through Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain. I guess it's kind of his autobiography, except more split into topics. If you like his shows at all, though, you'd probably like this - you can practically hear him narrating the book, and dude has stories.

    Also, I really want to start The Wise Man's Fear, but probably won't get to it until I get on the plane for the boat.

    Same here! Parts Unknown is particularly good, IMO. The cinematography and production is killer.

    Not exactly the most dynamic thread on the forum here! But I'm a big book nerd, and I've been thinking about a metal reading list. Not books about metal (those are fairly easy to find), but books that, perhaps, have influenced songs, bands, lyrics, etc. I'm about to read through this whole thread and see what else I find (and yes, writing down a bunch of the books about metal too!), but what comes up when you think of that? Which bands/musicians/songs were influenced by what books, basically. (I'm also always interested in books recommended by the musicians. For example, just wrote down some recommended by Alex Skolnick on his old blog.)

    My list is really short so far, but I've got Johnny Got His Gun - Dalton Trumbo, Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Coleridge, Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman (probably lots of other mythology too), For Whom the Bell Tolls - Hemingway, H.P. Lovecraft....What others can you think of? I could probably come up with several more, but I thought I'd crowd-source it and see what you guys can tell me! :ugeek:

    The Last Season. Just started, it's a nonfiction book about a park ranger who goes missing in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Haven't had much time to read in a while and for me there's no better way to plunge back in than a biography with elements of mystery and some musings on nature.
