We talk about movies and TV, so why not have a discussion about the books we read!  Let us know what's the last book you read, and feel free to recommend it or expand on what it's about.

I mostly read through my Kindle and get most of my eBooks through Amazon.

The book I recently finished was Inside the Real Area 51: The Secret History of Wright Patterson.

Believe it or not, the last book I read [some of, not all] was the Bible.  And it wasn't because I'm deeply religious or anything.... I wanted to check on Bible accounts of various other histories that I'd had seen documentaries about on the History Channel

Finished the Thrawn book. This was a great Star Wars book.

I think it was back in the 1970's, don't even remember the name. LOL


Actually, it was an HTML Programming book in the 1990's.

The last book I read was "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Philippa Gregory. A bit of historical fiction which I do not usually read but the almost 700 pages seemed like three hundred.

still 7 more library books sitting in the house waiting to be read

seeing as i tend to read when in transit or walking, the stay at home thing has cut my reading time by a fair bit.

currently reading some robin cook thing (that's the us author who writes medicine related fiction and not the late british politician) and steve berry (just started cotton malone bk 4)

Currently reading Joni Mitchell - In Her Own Words by Malka Marom. I am a BIG Joni Mitchell fan so it's great to get her story from her!

I don't read much these days.

Same here!  Although I have reading glasses, my eyesight isn't that great when trying to read print on paper, yet I can read text on a PC screen without issue.  Therefore I don't purchase or borrow books from the library these days.  Besides, I was never really into fiction that much, usually preferring non-fiction books on history and geography, etc. I do, however, like the Stephen King novels and did read 'The Stand' and others before reading became somewhat difficult in my later years; hence I now watch the movies and TV series' of his works.

As for actually reading a paper book, I recently had to go through the manual for my MSI TR4 X399 SLI Plus mobo to better understand some of its options and BIOS adjustments.

I honestly had been meaning to get into more of Neil Gaiman's works for a long time, and recently I finally got around to starting Neverwhere. So far, not at all disappointed. I do love his writing tone and cadence a lot.
