Finally finished Song of Solomon!
I really enjoyed it but the ending was a little disappointing to me.

Now I'm going to start either The Bluest Eye (Toni Morrison) or Mort (Terry Pratchett)

Has anybody here heard of The Edge Chronicles? It was one of my – if not the – favourite book series when I was younger, and I just found out that after the three "original" trilogies, they started another one some years ago, so I might start to read that.  :creep:

Spoiler

 

Also, I am currently reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King.

I finished The Bluest Eye and since that had such a bleak ending, I wanted to read something fun.
So now I'm starting 'The Long Way to A Small, Rocky Planet' by Becky Chambers. It's really cute so far!

Blue Melody by Lee Underwood.

It's about 60's folk musician Tim Buckley, the book is written by his close friend and band member. So far it's very good and I'm very close to finishing it. Overall it's a lovely book but has a tragic ending...

has anyone read Ishmael by Daniel Quinn? my friend recommended it to me and i haven't started it yet but from what i've heard it sounds really good. if anyone has read it, could you reccomend anything similar?

on my list after that is The Doors Of Perception + Heaven and Hell (Aldous Huxley), We Are All Stardust: Leading Scientists Talk About Their Work, Their Lives, And The Mysteries Of Our Existence (Stefan Klein), The Path: What Chinese Philsophers Can Teach Us About The Good Life (Michael Puett), and The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book Of The Dead (Timothy Leary)

don't laugh at me i like this stuff :crossed:

A completely new book in the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski, titled Sezon burz ('Season of Storms').

I'm not really sure what I think of it, except that it's nice to have something new from the series along the amazing computer games.

 

I know you said that a long time ago. It is worth to read the books? I played the game, and I love it. I am thinking to read the first 2 books. Is it any good?

 

Anyway I started to read a romantic lemonade story (That is what my mind wanted), but it is so bad, I think I am gonna suffer to read it til the end. But since I payed for it, I will try.

The Origins of the Chinese People by John Ross. It was slow to start but the chapters about Confucius and the development of their language has been intersting.

I wish more people gave descriptions of the books they are reading!

@Hollyweird I think you just gave me some recommendations 😏

P.S. The Doors of Perception is a good read (if a bit dry imo)
