What book are you reading right now? - Page 202

I wonder if he either lost interest or simply was not sure how to tie all the threads together. it is really spread out ala Book 11 from Wheel of Time.

I am a huge wheel of time fan as well - been reading it since i was 15. you could have a point there. Jordan did seem like he was lost or did not know where to go and i actually got that same kind of feeling with book 4 of a song of ice and fire. Book five is good but seems a bit waning compared to the first 3. 

 

i just hope he finishes them before he dies. i mean he is a very unhealthy looking man and i would hate to see what happened to the wheel of time happen to a song of ice and fire! 

 

did you hear about the wheel of time short stories that were released??

No! I would love to read them. I am re-reading A New Spring right now and contemplating starting over....I thought Sanderson did a good job wrapping things up. I just wish the last book did not end so abruptly....Maybe I just wanted it to continue....

i read a new spring as well and really enjoyed it. the way of kings by brandon sanderson is very good you should give that a go. 

I have read the first 3 wheel of time books 4 times, usually around my birthday every year - it has become a bit if a custom now. i just love the chase in "the eye of the world". 

 

here is the short story review.

it will be a great read i think for anyone who likes fantasy.

Way of Kings is excellent. Sanderson's Blog mentioned he is working on the next volume. Book 4 of WoT is my favorite, but they are all good.

Any good? I only read non fiction from time to time. I think there is a lot of drivle out there and it can be hard to get clued in on good non-fiction.

It's a good book that outlines some practical investing advice...it's only about 96 pages long...I wouldn't recommend it as representative of great non-fiction

Looks interesting...I could recommend a non-fiction book that I recently finished. It was well written...interesting topic as well...
