I have the sneaking suspicion that I am not reading nearly enough, particularly for a writer.
In the past several months, I’ve read the following:
Redshirts by John Scalzi – very funny, particularly in the beginning. Wil Wheaton did a great job on the Audible version.
The Lovecraft Necronomicon Primer by T. Allan Bilstad – read for research, interesting and informative.
Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy – productivity audio book, good advice, but doesn’t seem like it’s for me.
The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss – Excellent books. I can’t recommend them highly enough. I listened to the Audible versions but think I’ll buy the paper books as well. I want to reread them and I think I pay closer attention to details with print. These are definitely books you want to pay close attention to the details on.
The Fuller Memorandum by Charles Stross – I really enjoy his Laundry novels. What’s not to like when characters have job titles like ‘Computational Demonologist’ and ‘Combat Epistemologist’? Another Audible listen.
So that’s maybe 2 books a month and only that much because I always have an audio book on my phone. Looks like it’s time to play around with my schedule and get some more reading time in.
Do you have recommendations for me? I tend to stick to my genre (speculative fiction), but I’m open to a good mystery as well.
