    I think I got that far in the Harrington series once. After the primary mission was over, things kind of got boring for me...

    Right now I am reading a biography of Tom Petty

    I'm thinking of starting The Last Kingdom books (netflix series) and/or the Parker novels (Parker and Payback are movies based off these books)

    #12 introduces the new bad guys. There's a newish one out after #13 but the reviews are weak.

    Currently reading Mustaine, the memoir by former Metallica guitarist and driving force of Megadeth, Dave Mustaine.

    This is the 16th book I've read this year so far.

    I am reading this intellectual stimuli, it's a very enlightening experience.

    It can be quite intricate and highly detailed at times but it still is a very satisfying experience over all.

    :D

    Well, I've read something like twenty books since the last time I reported in here...

    Recently finished Ready Player One, which i guess has been turned into a movie, and currently reading about Paper: Paging Through History

    Also picking my way through some Jack Reacher (I have the first six books in an omnibus), and a couple "Jack" Daniels books by J. A. Konrath.

    Starting the "Ring of Fire" series by Eric Flint over again. I've read all the "Grantville Gazettee" books that are currently available as a adjunct to the series so I want to see how it reads with that info in my memory. If Baen Publishing ever combined all this content into an omnibus series I'm pretty sure it would be bigger than the Encyclopedia Britannica. :cool:

    Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan.

    Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk genre, and vastly more readable than William Gibson.
    Think they also turned it into a Netflix TV show.

    Recently finished The Three Musketeers, which was not pleasant. I am now reading Fuzzy Navel, a thriller which involves a cop, her very retired cop mother, a complete psychopath, and a trio of rogue snipers.

    Just finished 'Joyland' by Stephen King. I enjoyed it. Before that I read 'Finders Keepers', also by SK, it's the second in the Bill Hodges trilogy. I'm waiting for the third to be available to borrow from the library (on my Kindle), I'm third in line lol

    Honestly, my TBR is so large, I will likely never get through all of them, and yet I continue to add titles. Kinda sad, if I think about it...

    I've downloaded a bunch of the free monthly offers Amazon sends, I've read about 1/4 of what I have. I try not borrow or buy anything unless I have time/desire to actually read it and I go on binges (on one now) so yeah...so much for THAT plan!!

    LOL.

    I've had to teach myself that it is okay to give up on a title if I'm not really into it.

    The reason I finished The Three Musketeers is because it was a book club read. Otherwise I would have tossed it out a third of the way through and had an extra week and a half of reading something more pleasant.

    The book club thing is nice, though-- gives me a chance to expand my horizons a bit and read things I normally would not have or keep putting off in favor of more accessible stuff.

    I absolutely loved the Netflix show. Hands down amazing. I would be interested to know how someone who read it first liked the show. Acting and production were stellar.

    That's like 300 years old. Reminds me of Japamese cinema. Never a happy ending.
    Extreme nastiness.
