Anybody else just flat out unable to get into e-reading? I've downloaded a few books but am not able to spend much time reading in that format.

Hi, My favourite genre is sci fi, but I’ve not read any of it for a while. I’ve read everything by Asimov in my time. I’m currently reading a children’s disc world book by Terry Pratchett. I’m enjoying it because it mimics my life- ...

Question of the week: Have you seen a screen adaptation of one of your favorite books that just mutilated the story line? What was your reaction?

I love reading but I'm so damned busy. I've taken listening audiobooks while I work. Someone called me out with "That doesn't count if you aren't holding a book!" What do you all think, is it cheating?

Have just finished reading, Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett. It’s a seasonal tale about the vulnerability of humans and their endless and changing stories to make sense of reality. Needless to say I enjoyed it. Am also still reading a book called, ...

Has anyone been dying to get to a book and quickly figured out your expectations didn't match the reality? Did you make it all the way through or go to something else?

Q&A time, Wyrmz..... When you finish a book, where does it go? Given to someone else to enjoy? Given to the local library? Taken to a reseller for or trade? Destined to a life in a bookcase? I have to admit to a bit of each. Technical martial ...

"Hamlet's Mill," by Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend, is what comes to mind with that question. He was a professor of the History of Science, I believe, at M.I.T., and she was a professor at the University of Frankfort am Main. My ...

While I prefer non-fiction, I just finished Willa Cather's "My Antonia," and really enjoyed it. I'd not read anything else of hers, have others?
