What are you reading at the moment?

I bought a few books a couple of weeks ago but am planning on starting Cosmos by Carl Sagan tonight.
Just finished Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes and Bram Stoker's Dracula, loved all of them when I really thought I wouldn't. Sadly term time is approaching so my non-subject related reading will take a massive hit, but I have started Don Quixote in the mean time.
Last book I read (well, on my kindle) was Blood Guilt by Ben Cheetham. Easily the best thing I've ever read.

Just started reading the Society of Dirty Hearts, same author, he's seriously good.

Why is the Kindle not the same? The four books I listed above are all on Kindle. No copyright ftw.

Because it's a book, but I didn't read it in the form of a book, if that makes any sense at all
A book is an ephemeral idea maaaaan.
I've never even heard that word before /o\
It's the name of a creature in Final Fantasy XI. They're a group of little flying things that have elemental attacks. They aggro magic so some of the stronger ones can really fuck you up if you don't see them and you're alone.

Read more books. The irony!

Yeah I meant this.

e·phem·er·al/əˈfem(ə)rəl/
Adjective:
Lasting for a very short time: "fashions are ephemeral".
Noun:
An ephemeral plant.
Synonyms:
transitory - transient - momentary - short-lived


And definitely not this.
The last two books I read were football related ones - "Up Pohnpei", which is by an Englishman who, with his mate, moved to Micronesia and took control of their football team. The other one was "Soccernomics", which is a football-nerd's heaven. So many facts and figures, it's really interesting.
Currently reading Inverting The Pyramid - The History Of Football Tactics. Some interesting parts thus far, but as expected, Wilson don't half ramble on.

Is Up Pohnpei any good? Sounds like my sort of thing.
Reading War Room atm which is about the Legacy of Bill Belichick and him building New England Patriots

Went to my local discount book store and picked up The War of the Worlds, Treasure Island, The Divine Comedy, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and The Jungle. Gonna start with Dracula in a bit.

Is that Football Manager book worth reading?

Are Kindles any good?

Never used one, thinking of getting it.
My brother got one a few months ago. I've only used it a few times but I was impressed.
I don't know about Kindle but I have a touchscreen Kobo which is good, and slightly cheaper.
Aye Kindle's are pretty good, like the ducky eggy fella I've not got one myself but used them a few times.
I've got a kindle. I love it.

Read classics on it mostly that have ran out of copyright. I just have the 79 quid model, fantastic bit of kit.
i would highly recommend all the books by John Ajvide Lindqvist:

Let The Right One In
Handling The Undead
Little Star
Harbour

fantastic horror/thriller/weird done in really original ways

also my favourite book of all time is The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks

Possibly mine too. Check out some of Ian Banks' other books too, The Crow Road is very good, as is Espidar Street. His sci-fi stuff is pretty crazy too, although they can be quite daunting.
Quite like The Wasp Factory as well, need to read a few more of his books though. I read a couple of others back when I was in school but really can't remember much about them.

yeah ive always meant to check out some others of his. Only other one ive read is The Steep Approach to Garbadale, which was also pretty good.

But yeah Wasp Factory is fantastic, read it for the first time when i was 14 and it just blew me away, i'd never read anything like it.
I read 'Up Pohnpei' upon the recomendation of Nexus earlier in this thread, I got it for a train journey down to London for my wife's neurology appointment and loved it, I couldn't put it down all day and had finished before we got home.
My friend dropped in a few books yesterday. Anyone read 'Hidden Soldier'? Loving it so far, soooo brilliant. About this Irish guy who joined the French Foreign Legion and then became a mercenary.
El Diego was only £1 in HMV, so bought that. Anyone read it? Any good?

Picked this up a while ago in a second-hand book shop. Just started it, really enjoying it so far.
