Discworld is awesome. Me and my sister have been reading it since I picked up a copy of Guards! Guards! in the '90's, and our aged mother just started reading it last year. Since she's moved in with my wife and I, she's been reading through my collection of hardbacks, and I recently gave her The Last Elephant, which she thought would be the last one. I chuckled and said, "nope, there's far more to come. You haven't even gotten to the kids novels yet!"

Now there's a series I need to get the rest of the books for. It's been ages since I've read any of the Death Gate novels, and the first 2 were good, as I recall. *hmmm* It's been a while, maybe I should read them again before I buy the rest of them, see if my memories aren't being viewed through rose-tinted lenses.

And WWZ is an excellent novel. No idea how the movie of the same name is going to turn out, but the book is great.

Also reading the Iron Druid series by a local author Kevin Hearne. Highly recommend it.
Mira Grant's Newsflesh is one of the best zombie series out there. I'm deep in Jordan's Wheel of Time, but as I'm on book 8 of 14, after this one I'm taking a break and picking up Jonathan Maberry's Rot & Ruin from the public library to reset my brain for the last half of WoT. Oh, and the second Walking Dead compendium is on its way to me from Amazon right now. Let's see, $60 on the shelf at the local Barnes & Noble, or $38, free shipping, from Amazon? Yeah, the internet wins again.

I just finished Abaddon's Gate. It is the 3rd book of a series called 'The Expanse'. the first 2 books were Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War. I recommend all 3 - a really great sci-fi series

I'm about 3/4 of the way through The Straits of Galahesh.
The Straits of Galahesh | Bradley P. Beaulieu

Airships, magic, and muskets flavored with a Russian and Persian background. Lots of fun.

BF Skinner wrote a fictional novel. To the best of my reading so far there is little plot, it has to do with a guided tour through a community that has been maximized using the theories of operatant conditioning. Waldon Two. It is really a fascinating read IMO.

What are you reading?

The latest book is entitled "The SAS in World War II," by
Gavin Mortimer. The book deals with the early days of
this elite unit, the men who made up the group and the
various missions they undertook. If you'd like to learn
more about what these exceptional men did, by all
means check it out.

Sincerely,
