I've been reading The Empress of Rome series with someone I adore and it's been really enjoyable. I'd say that so far, book 3 is the best of the series. 1 is second place, and the 2nd book was pretty abysmal. But Man, Empress of the Seven Hills is totally making up for how horrible its predecessor was.

Mother Horse Eyes is a series of Reddit comments made over the course of a year that, when combined, form a novel with many complicated sci-fi and horror plot threads. It’s some of the best free fiction I’ve ever read.

Apparently Boog and I are sharing a mood ‘cause I just grabbed that one from the library.

I'm surprised no one mentioned this when I asked for post-apocalyptic recommendations a while back! It's better than King's The Stand imo (especially the pacing) and really gripping so far. And also really dark / realistic. Recommend.

Barnes and Noble is generally for rich people, but I found a complete set of Shakespeare's plays (minus his poetry and two prose works) for eight dollars in a large, pretty hardcover, and a book with lots of crisp pictures about the major religions for about the same price.

There was a hardcover version of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, illustrated with pictures, for fourteen dollars and now I'm kicking myself for not getting it.

I don't know what it is, but a book with nice pictures is just the coolest thing lately to me.

Stephen Hawking isn't the kind of guy to read when you're tired. You need your brain to understand what he's saying.
Playing something new could be just what you need!
