Rereading The Brazen Gambit. One of the few fantasy books I truly love.
I feel kind of bad for what I'm reading, there is nothing wrong with it but it's a series which means it's going to be a while before I get to the reading suggestions I got in my last G.A.

I'm re-reading Kim Harrison Hollows (Rachel Morgan) Series, I had already read the first ones in the series but its been a while so I'm restarting it. I'm at the second one, "The good, the bad and the undead", right now. The series has 13 books.

After I was thinking to reread David Weber's Safehold Series but I see that a new book will come out in September so I'll wait.
I'm reading Fragment about love by George Simmel.
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison.

A collection of seven short stories.
Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. First book of the Baroque Cycle. I've had this series for a number of years and never gotten around to it, even though I love his writing. Anyway, just started into it last night.
grimwerk: I've looked it up based on your post, thanks. Apparently, Beevor, who wrote the Stalingrad book I read, also edited the English translation of A Writer At War. So it wouldn't surprise me if Grossman's work was one of the sources for Beevor's book.

I'll look for this book too, thanks.
OrinaRemanebit: No problem. Thanks for replying too.

Maybe I someday I would go check on Beevor's books if I had the time.
I bought A Writer at War for my dad for Father's Day, and it's just arrived. My dad is super keen and will get to it soon, I expect. After that, I'll have a crack at it. Great that you brought it up!

Also, my wife got me all 11 Hornblower books for Father's Day, and they also arrived today! So that's what I'll be reading this month.

The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice. I'm barely in the beginning but it's terrific already.

Reading through the first edition core rule book for the Vampire Masquerade RPG, then onto the clan novels...
I just started reading The Doctor is Sick by Anthony Burgess. 2 chapters in, loving it so far, great writing.
Wisdom Eccentrics by Ngakpa Chögyam.
Not perhaps the good starter book for Buddhism :) But a very honest account of what it means to practice and be a Buddhist practitioner, and what not. Albeit some of the teachings the author encounters in the story may seem a bit hardcore, they are still authentic :)

The Fifth Gospel : Ian Caldwell.

pretty disappointed so far, hopefully it will pick up.
Chapterhouse of Dune, for the fourth or fifth time... I lost count. Every once in a while I tell myself that I should try reading the sequels, but I just can't find the courage to do so. I read only one of the prequels so far, and it was very mediocre and dull.
I'm working myself through the old classics so at the moment I'm reading The Sorrows of Young Werther by Goethe.
Read David Cronenberg's "Consumed" today. It was interesting, if a bit padded. Might have been better of as a twisted movie.
Just finished Finders Keepers by Stephen King. I enjoyed it except for the end. Also, I didn't like the main reason many of the events happened, talk about your first world problems!
