3006Gabriel Garcia Marquez - Hundred years of solitud

Me too! I'm liking it a ton.

I'm also reading Flour Water Salt Yeast and Worm which are respectively really useful/educational and really really good.

(plus a bunch of stuff for school but that's different, although I got to read A Child's Book of Sickness and Death which was really good but a really hard read)

Do you use a genealogy tree ? I did one caus at some point it was really confusing.
If you like that kind of writing i'd suggest you
- Juan Rulfo - Pedro Paramo
And any book GGM did, they're all master pieces.

How We Sleep by Matthew Walker

he is a Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology, and the director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He wrote this book about his studies and findings on human sleep, dreams etc. and especially the negative effects caused by lack of sleep.

I became interested in it after listening to his lecture done to promote the book from Talks at Google: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXflBZXAucQ

its interesting but i havent read much yet.

The version I have has a family tree at the start of it, I can't imagine I would be able to actually understand what was going on otherwise :p. I'll definitely have to check that stuff out though thanks for the recommendations!

I was sick in bed all day yesterday and caught up with Worth The Candle by Alexander Wales. It's well written enough but it's also pretty suffering dense and I wouldn't recommend to anyone who doesn't at least somewhat enjoy "grimdark" fiction. It took me a couple tries to get into it (I put it down a couple different times at different times in the story) but the world and characters ended up being compelling enough for me to read all 600k words.

i always thought it a lot of the charm of the book. deepens the lore and prevents you from contextualizing the worldbuilding as a version of our own.

I'm reading the Name of the Wind series again because eventually I'll be reading the second book when the release of the third is announced.

I'm planning to restart the Silmarillion in earnest this weekend. The introduction is really beautiful so I always lose steam after reading it.

(Seriously anyone who hasn't read Name of the Wind but is looking for a good book should really consider this one)

I work at the library and usually have like 20 books at home at once.

I read an amazing children's novel called The Stars Beneath our Feet from the perspective of a little boy growing up in Harlem, and it was really touching and sweet. I also read a YA novel called The Female of the Species in like a single night and decided after reading the whole book that I didn't like it. But apparently a lot of teens do because it's nominated for a reader's choice award.

I'm also trying to slog through like "Best/Winnerrest Science Fiction Novel of all time" lists and reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons and I just can't get into it.

Also I read the Silmarillion like a billion times when I was younger and loved it, but it is kind of uneven because it's actually a compilation/trim-and-paste of like several different full-length books he never published.

Keep the Apidistra Flying by Orwell, finished Burmese Days a month or so ago and thought it was good enough to keep on with the omnibus.

Also I read the Silmarillion like a billion times when I was younger and loved it, but it is kind of uneven because it's actually a compilation/trim-and-paste of like several different full-length books he never published.

Never got around to reading the Silmarillion, seemed a little too lore heavy for me. Unfinished Tales was a fun ride though.

It's supposed to be essentially the creation myths of Middle-earth, right? I think it makes sense for it to have a stitched together collection/anthology vibe. I'm pumped to revisit it. :)
