I got it on discount back when I worked at Mountain Gear. The one thing I miss about that job was the discounts.

"The Old Straight Track" by Alfred Watkins. The first modern scholarly work on neolithic roads and their relationship to the stone circles.

"The Player Of Games" by Iain Banks. One of his "Culture" SF novels.

"Warhammer: 8th Edition" by Games Workshop. Not so much reading it, as familiarizing myself with the new rule-book.

"Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep" by Philip K. Dick - the current, graphic-novel adaptation by BOOM Studios comics.

I had the exact same qeustion myself.


the opening frame/setup was good. The middle was good. The "and then what" was half written and missed off finishing the closeup of the "author" frame. 7/10 here for story construction here. Was a fun audiobook though.

I'm reading "The Sagas of the Icelanders". It's a monster of a book at over 700 pages. Very colorful tales. Since I need a break from all the violence in this book, I'm also reading "The Viking Manifesto: the Scandinavian Approach to Business and Blasphemy by Steve Strid and Claes Andreasson.

I'm currently reading The Odyssey, George Carlin's Last Words, and Self-Reliance and Other Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson. All great reads.

It was great. History of Lincoln's life killing vampires told from his journals. Part of me wants to go to the Abe Lincoln wikipedia page and update it. Smile Maybe someday.

As for myself and what I'm reading: I'm reading Lawrence Lampert's How Philosophy Became Socratic: A Study of Plato's "Protagoras," "Charmides," and "Republic", which is a surprisingly fresh turn in Platonic studies.


Thanks for the recommendation. I'll have to look for this.

At the moment I'm reading a general introduction to linguistics called The Study of Language, by George Yule. I mention it because I think it would be interesting to some of you, too.


Thanks for the recommendation. Just put a library hold on it.
