    I just finished "Lost in Shangri-La" by Mitchell Zuckoff. Another plane crash story during WW2. I really like the way he tells stories. I'd recommend this one as well to people who like military, history, or adventure books.

      James Joyce's "Ulysses". I've had this book for a decade and I'm finally making the time to read it. I'm very early into it so no comments as of yet.

        This week, I jumped ALL the way into The Expanse. I had read book 1 a few years ago, and just reread it, and damn I had forgotten how good it is. Now well into book 2. The 9th and final book comes out this fall. Plenty of time to get caught up.

          I am on a Dean koontz kick, I just picked up about 15 of his books. Then I have 10 Stephen king books to hit.

          I enjoyed the Expanse series in scifi, now on Amazon prime. Will have to read the books.

            About to wrap up my current book about the betrayal of Rhodesia and change tack to something more upbeat: Ordinary Men: Police Reserve Battalion 101 and The Final Solution in Poland by Christopher Browning.😐

              I've been trying to read recent sci fi but it's all super politically relevant/woke in direct proportion to the number of awards it's received. Same themes, same hamfisted messages. It's getting old. I'm starting to actively look for books that aren't popular and don't have awards. So shoot me. It can be rewarding regardless.

              But, to contradict myself, I think I'll try the expanse. I'm up to date on the show which is brilliant.

                Funny you should say that: I haven't read much of any sci-fi written in the last couple of decades for specifically those reasons. I also find history far more appealing and relevant.

                Haven't read "The Expanse", but I also thought the show was excellent.

                I'm 4 books and 3 novellas deep in The Expanse and it's excellent. I will also say, sci-fi is always politically relevant. It's just that in 2021, the stuff from the 60s-80s doesn't seem cutting edge anymore, because it isn't. But at the time, it absolutely was.

                I won't say more than that to stay on the right side of the "no politics" rule.

                Yeah it's not so much the fact it's relevant or political, it's that everyone seems to have the same things to say about said relevant politics. I'm like, surely there are other opinions out there or even just different approaches... meh.

              Just finished up “The Fortunate Pilgrim” by Mario Puzo. I think it’s better written than The Goddather, but a slightly slower story. It’s basically a fictional account of the absolute grind that being an immigrant to America in the early/mid 1900s was. I really liked it because a lot of what was mention was pretty similar to stories my grandparents had.

                I'm continuing my trend of reading books about accidents, tragedy and death. I just finished Trapped Under The Sea by Neil Swidey. It was an interesting read and story. I've lived in MA my entire life and I didn't hear about this. I knew about the harbor cleaning project but I didn't know about the 10 mile tunnel under the harbor. I'm guessing it is more common knowledge for people in the eastern part of the state.

                  Ever read?... The Silver Bridge Disaster of 1967 , it's only 128 pages though.😉

                  Edit... Dang it, I was meaning this book. The Silver Bridge by Gray Barker....The other book, is more pictures, than words.

                I started reading Archibald Cronin's novel The Hatter's Castle. The beginning is not yet very rosy, but the development of the plot is extremely interesting. Also in plans to read "In the Heart of the Sea. The Tragedy of the Essex" by Nathaniel Philbrick.

                  I've started book 3 in the Mistborn series. I'm really liking this storyline so far.

                    Huzzah! Mistborn is great. After you do Mistborn 1, start Stormlight. But hit Warbreaker between Stormlight 1 and 2, and don't miss the novellas between 2 and 3, and 3 and 4. And do the novella "Sixth of the Dusk" at some point before Stormlight 4. Oh, and the White Sand graphic novels before...Stormlight 2 or 3, one of those. Actually, can't hurt to do Warbreaker, Six of the Dusk, and White Sand before Stormlight. Then after Stormlight, get back to Mistborn era 2. All one universe and it's So. Cool.

                    No doubt. I think I may have found a new favorite author.

                  Just finished up “Circe” by Madeline Mill. I really only picked it because it was in the available now section of the library, but it turned out to be really good. Kind of a fiction about titans/Greek gods/mortals. I’d recommend it if you want something that takes very little thinking.

                    Circe was one of my favorite books that I read last year. The Song of Achilles was also great.

                    Is Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series, Ever gonna come out on TV. I thought I remember hearing/seeing something about it "in the works". I never did finish the series. But, I did like the 8 books that I did read.

                    Edit.. Just checked on Wikipedia it is already been renewed for a 2 season and they haven't even done the premier of season 1. I need to read the other 6 volumes.😏
