Cogle's Book Club

Inspired by Mutumbo000 and Adarqui. I used to read a lot. Like a lot. Now...not so much.

Currently reading this monster. I'm only a hundred or so pages in out of the 800 but it's a very easy book to get lost in.

This is the 4th in the series I think. I've only read the first and this one but you can read them out of order apparently. The first one was ridiculous. One of the best books I've read in the last 20 years (the entire GOT series included).

I don't actually use goodreads (except for that link haha). I'm not sure I read enough to justify it yet. Do you?

word, strong recommendation.

i started using goodreads last year or the year before (had an account before that but never used it). previously i just kept a written list of what i'd read. goodreads is a niftier way to keep track of books read and especially books to-read. anytime i hear about something interesting i look it up on there and add it to the list. handy reference when i'm trying to figure out what to read next. also for looking back: i read ~30 books a year (37 last year, actually).

37! That's a solid effort. I might start an account. I have a list on Wunderlist that I use for lots of work stuff but never really look at it.

In addition to the Labyrinth book I am listening to a podcast in the car of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It's a Chinese literary classic and I'm 28 episodes in out of around 150. It's a funny format to listen to a book in. Not an audio book as he gives his interpretation throughout but great as he injects comedy into the mix and also is able to pause and give reference and knowledge around topics that a non Chinese just wouldn't be aware of.
