Now time for Shift Omnibus by Hugh Howey, Silo books 6-8. I wanted to wait for the omnibus before starting fearing that if all three weren't available I would drive myself nuts waiting for the next in the series. So far it has been very good.
Another excellent installment in the Silo universe! I really want to read Dust now. Fantastic job by Hugh Howey!

Now for The Runner by WJ Davies also set in the Silo universe and endorsed by HH. Hopefully it can capture some of the same emotions that Hugh is able to bring out.

On a side note, I hate reading on something other than my Kindle which I forgot at home this morning, had my hands full and left it by the door. I finished Shift on my phone, so at least I had a backup, but it isn't the same.

I liked it, but I've read 'other opinions' here in this thread. It'll be a CBS TV series this year, staring nobody I've ever heard of. Hmmmm!

I finally got around to rereading The Andromeda Strain, which I last read back in High School. It's still a great read, but I'm not as impressed by Crichton's writing this time around. It's certainly readable, but not the page turner his later books would be.

It took me forever to read that book. I found it very boring and was really irritated with the pace. Everybody is different though.

Currently reading the Shift Omnibus by Hugh Howey. Only a couple chapters in and I'm having a hard time putting it down .

Unsure of my next read but will probably be a sci-fi from the library.
I decided to read Revan by Drew Karpyshyn. A Star Wars book that takes place during the Old Republic. Downloaded from my public library. Evidently, it's based on a video game. I was unaware of this beforehand. My fault for not checking with GR first.

The book was not very good. A lot of general SWs inconsistencies. Word skill average; not exciting. Plot and action scenes underwhelming. Battles lasted for five sentences. Since there was no real ending I'm guessing there is a sequel somewhere. Rated D [1 star].

Next read is undecided.

I just saw that it was going to be a 13 part mini-series which seems rather long to me. I'm about 15% into it and so far I like it.

I'm currently reading a hardback edition of Gracie: A Love Story by George Burns.
Gracie: A Love Story by George Burns is on my reading list. I have it as #4.

I wasn't going to read it, but after hearing everyone talk about how good it is, everything else I'm reading is now officially on hold as I read this month's MobileRead Book Club selection, A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute.

The movie is quite good. If you've not seen it, do so.

Tonight I will be starting A Town Like Alice and if it's not good, we have 24 people to blame for it when we could have been reading Stardust.

I'm reading that in parallel to another book. Only one chapter in and what I've noticed is that the writing itself isn't that marvellous. The story looks like it might be OK though.

If you have WunderRadio, you can get some episodes of Burns and Allen to stream.
