Books To Read - Currently Reading - Recently Finished

Postby wyruzk on Thu May 15, 2014 6:20 am

What book or books are you currently reading?

I just finished Ringworld's Children, by Larry Niven (2nd time, iirc) and Fleet of Worlds, by Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner (set 200 yrs bef r/w)
There's another 4 in the Fleet series I will probably read next.

Also probably going to read something by Neal Stephenson.
Looking forward to the next Stephen Brust novel. I'd like to have 1st editions of all of his work.

Saw an interesting tv story about the new economics book 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century' by the french author ... Thomas Piketty.
I'd like to read that, if I could generate enough motivation for non-fiction.

Books to read -
  • Python in Practice - Create Better Programs Using Concurrency, Libraries, and Patterns, by Mark Summerfield. I have another book by Summerfield on Python, and that's what got me to write some fun tools in Python. Thinking about buying this book to pick up some more skills.
Currently reading -
  • The Thousand Names by Django Wexler. Interesting take on epic fantasy (adding muskets and cannons, but without it feeling gimmicky or tacked on). I'm half way through and looking forward to the next book by Wexler.
Recently finished -
  • The White Luck Warrior by R. Scott Bakker. Continued the story from The Judging Eye, and the The Prince of Nothing trilogy that preceded that. Eagerly awaiting publication of The Unholy Consult that will conclude it :)
