Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Reading is fun!

    Bah. Read what you like.


    Along with my current Robert Crais kick, I also just finished up Stephen Kings new short story collection. I quite enjoyed it.

    Currently reading Chapterhouse: Dune.

    I feel like I must complete this series.

    I mean, I bumbled through God Emperor.

    I can handle anything.

    y'know, I actually liked god emperor

    the one after that was horrible though

    I liked parts of God Emperor. Herbert pretty much sunk back to Pre-Dune writing after Children of Dune.

    Faulkner haters: you just don't like reading about life through the perspective of a retard.


    p.s. I read the black company! all of them! (we're talking about the fantasy series right?)

    You ever try and draw Falcor as a giant dong? No? It just ends up looking like a long cyclops.

    I was trying to read David Copperfield but just couldnt get into it. Had the same thing with A Tale of Two Cities.

    Decided to drop that shit and just grabbed 20,000 leagues under the sea since I've never read any Jules Verne.

    i am no troll, i've been around here forever. i just haven't posted actively in like... a year and a half.

    seriously though go try and read the tale of genji

    all he does is sleep with women, and finds a new one every 30 pages to start the process over with. also he sleeps with children

    well yeah

    parts of it were really confusing and none of the quotes at the beginnings of chapters made any sense

    but other parts of it were really cool, I thought

    then again I liked dune messiah more than dune so some may wish to discount my opinion

    Hey, a reading thread that isn't impossible large to catch up on!

    I really need to read more, work and video games and TV keep getting in the way

    I'm currently reading the first book of the Soldier Son series by Robin Hobb, it's OK so far

    Also I know this thread is about books without pictures but I really need to finish Watchmen before the movie comes out

    It gets pretty good at the end of the first book on out.

    I seriously have not wanted to read anything non-fiction since I finished my M.A. this summer. I am working through the Dresden Files. I also want to start Will Thomas's Barker and Llewelyn series, but the county library system only has one copy of the first book and I am too poor to buy it.

    nah, I think graphic novels are cool for book threads

    just don't get into serial comics
