Who would want to read starship troopers together? Perhaps the first chapter and we talk about it the next day?

"I just call it banged grains."
-Peavie the Popcorn maker

I have an issue though, they introduce the new archchancellor of the university and there's a joke:
"He orders beer for his breakfast.
He tells jokes."

And then not 10 pages later the very same character scowls at his paper pusher for making a joke saying he doesn't like those things.



This was a post-mortem print. I was miserable reading the introduction.

No, it was 'The Bursar' who thought it with disdain as a narrator. Pratchett doesn't ever do anything but "perspectives" with that… Uh… Perspective. The Archchancellor then later accuses the Bursar for making a joke and the Bursar playfully avoids it.
Unless I have misread it all three times I read it and it is the Bursar who drinks beer and makes jokes, which I doubt. But I'll check and mention it if it is.

Time to read books again~
Apparently even books I emailed to my last Kindle show up on this one. That's cool. It's like I never lost it at all.
Reading The Colour of Magic right now to get a base understanding for the more interesting Discworld novels. It's getting better the deeper I go, but none of it is as good as the rest of the series.

I'm gonna be the last person in the world of my age group to get a Kindle.
I like reading to get away from screens. The only one I could get used to using is the older model with the weird screen.

If by "older model with the weird screen" you mean e-ink display, which is used for every single Kindle model except the Kindle Fire Tablet, then… just get anything except that.

I also read to avoid screens, and Kindle dominates this concept. Kindle screens are a material that mimics paper in every meaningful way; no glare, no backlight, just an off-white smooth surface. And yet they also manage to let you read in the dark using hidden, paper-thin side-lights - again, not backlights, so there's no eye strain. Technology is bloody insane these days.


Everyone always gets a fire so I just assumed that was the standard model these days. That's good to here.


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

I like reading mangoes on my Kindle. One Paunch Man packs quite the whollop.


Also that's a completely meaningless and misleading description of what an e-ink display is, lol.

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.

I have read bout 15 philosophical texts since last time. I am no closer on finishing Moving Pictures. But if you want to talk about Plato' s Forms you got the right robotic cat.

Was so bored at work so I decided to reread Dante's Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. I occurred to me after reading… is this mankind's most embraced fanfiction?

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.

Fantasy writers fantasise a lot, it's to be expected.


isn't any writing fanfiction if you stretch that definition enough?


File: 21p4q94lo4kg.jpg (34.32 KB, 300x300, moon.jpg)

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?

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.


File: gbb9ticj9iww.png (509.93 KB, 500x724, tumblr_nsb4nocQL81qibr2fo1….png)

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.


oh hey i remember those, they were p dope


File: iodne0hn86ww.jpg (20.07 KB, 206x321, 03s.jpg)

I read a ton of YA so that isn't a problem. I'll check it out.
