My book list is really long and I have 2,400 pages of American Revolution Historical Time Traveler books to read before I can get to the rest.

fire is just a low end android tablet with the kindle brand slapped on it, to my understanding. an actual kindle is basically a very advanced etch a sketch rather than a small LCD monitor

Halfway through 'Moving Pictures', less funny than I'd expect it to be. Though there is an amusing comment on there not being people on the Holy Wood's hill. A little bit too sappy for me, deals with too much of a thought experiment.

Bumping this thread because I havnt in a while.
Since I finished Outlander I've been pretty productive on my book list.
The Good:
Ember in the Ashes/A Torch in the Night- I wasnt sure because popular teen fantasies can always go either way but this is actually a very good series about complete despair and the small hopes that keep us alive. Eagerly awaking the third book.
The ok:
The Last Unicorn- The movie was better but its still a classic and I'm glad I read it
The bad:
A Throne of Glass- It was really fucking bad and I ranted about how much I hated it for like two days. A good example of why I always worry before I open a popular teen fantasy book

Currently I'm on my Tiffany Aching Discworld read/reread which has turned into the whole of the Discworld witches read/reread
I'm on Wintersmith now but after this one I'm going back to before Wee Free Men before I read the last two because I consider the last two Aching books to be kinda the conclusion to Pratchetts witches in general.

So basically the first actual novel of the Witcher is pretty alright but also really weird.

Like at one point Ciri, one of the main characters, gets caught up in a battle between a royal caravan and the Scoia'tael and she has to choose if she should listen to Geralt and stay neutral or join the fight.

Then there's this plot about trying to find the man who's hunting down what's left of Cintra's royalty.

But that plot just suddenly halts near the end of the book and you get 100 pages of Ciri having her first period and fucking with the thirstiest church boy to ever live.

Like, I guess the plot continues in the next book, but that shit was just kind of. Oh, okay, guess we're doing this now.

Right, so, I moved some of my writing onto a digital format. It's sloppy right now as a draft but I'm wondering if Tracer or Falcon wants to read it since they're my only fans.

Anybody know some good books with a Lemony Narrator?
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LemonyNarrator

TL;DR a narrator who is a unique personality and takes frequent opportunities to do silly things with the narrative, such as explain his side of it, focus on details he personally finds interesting when we clearly want to see something else, tell us directly to skip a part, not read the book at all, references the previous books in the series as actual books via title, etc.

The best authors for this I already enjoy reading are Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, and of course, Lemony Snicket. I'll soon have finished All The Wrong Questions, so I'm looking for something to fill that void.

If you dont mind going into the YA spectrum I'd suggest the Bartimaeus Trilogy.
Technically one of the main characters is the narrator but he usually narrates from an outside and very biased perspective.

I dont like staring at screens all the time and I enjoy the feeling of a real book and the satisfaction of seeing the page go by.
Plus I can take a book anywhere and the batteries will never run ut
