Re: The Book thread.

Anybody have any books lined up for Christmas presents, or to read over the festive period?

Re: The Book thread.

Don't know if this deserves to be in the comic thread but up to chapter 4 in my walking dead compendium and shit has picked up a ton. I thought Rick was badass from just watching the show but after reading and reading I see guy is even more awesome. Plus Tyreese is a great character, can't wait till he has a big role in the show.

Coincidentally I'm just on Amazon now buying myself some Terry Pratchett books. I've never read any of them but think I'd enjoy them. Dodger has piqued my interest each time I've seen it but not got round to reading it yet. Might read that first and if I enjoy it, start the discworld series.

im huge fan of pratchett so i'd highly recommend his books. I'll admit there was a time when i started to get a little fed up with discworld (to many nightwatch and not enough death and witches) but going postal got me back loving again! i think i just had pratchett overload.
amazing maurice and his educated rodents is a good stand alone discworld book (young adult) if you don't fancy starting with the colour of magic

Roberto Bolano's 2666. To say Bolano's an incredible writer would be an understatement. The story itself is a daunting read (though admittedly, I haven't read too much).

Cheers for the recommendation! I think I will read Dodger first, then if I enjoy it go back and read the others which I reckon I will. You can get them all pretty cheap pre-owned online which is great.

Going to do my best to read as much as I can next year, which is the same I said this year, and last year, and the year before that...

Haha.

Re: The Book thread.

i just started 11/22/63 couple days ago and so far it's pretty good. it's good si-fi book and at the same time gives you a good understanding of the culture of the late 50's early 60's .
