Default What are you reading?

I'm in the middle of part three of The Lord of The Rings right now. Such a great story.

Also currently reading and working through The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook.

Reading some manga too "Honey So Sweet"by Amu Meguro, cute story.

The next books I want to read after I'm done with LoTR are World War Z, and Les Miserables

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
How is Nature Possible? a book about Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. It's fascinating if you want to know how the mind works it's a must. He's a blend of an empiricist and a rationalist. I like Thomas Reid more though.

On my list: The federalist papers, Descartes' Meditations, Francis Bacon's New Method, Origin of Species, David Hume.

Ill be going through the entire harry potter series while doing this. I have the audio books and Stephen fry does the narration. He does a wonderful job. I also have the Stormlight Archive from Brandon Sanderson.

Some favourite suggestions of books and/or authors.
Out on Blue Six by Neil MacDonald- this is also available on the Audible app, if you like to listen, also, All his other books!!
Neil Geiman - all his books, but in particular, Neverwhere, and American Gods. For Graphic Novels: the Sandman series. Beautiful.
Another graphic novel series suggestion: Kabuki by David Mack. So beautiful.
(Some or even all of the above or below books could be triggering to some, please preview descriptions if you are feeling at all vulnerable)
Favorite books i treasure above and below.
Others: Monkey Wrench Gang, and sequel Hayduke Lives by Edward Abbey. The Electric Koolaide Acid Test by Tom Wolfe, Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez - I know for sure this last one is also available on Audible, just FYI.

I loved the Harry Potter books! Waaaaay better than the films, IMO.

On holiday, I was reading Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. It's about this woman with dementia who is convinced that her friend is missing. It's so well written that it's exactly how I imagine dementia must feel. As such, it is a bit upsetting at points where it reminds me of me sometimes, and my grandfather who died with dementia 2 years ago. I haven't quite finished it, but I recommend it if the topic won't trigger.

I used to read voraciously, but it's quite difficult now. Every so often, I will get another book to add to my 'to read' pile, but it makes me sad to see them sitting there, unread. I try to keep plodding through though.

I'm about two thirds done with World War Z. It's very cool, I have had this book for several years, don't know why I never got around to reading it. Will watch the movie after that.

I'm also reading "How to Write a Sentence and How to Read One" by Stanely Fish. It's was a required book in my college English class last year (the one I ended up having to withdraw from cause mental health issues) anyway, it's all about how to write good sentences. It's not like a boring straight grammar book either, it's very engaging. I hope to improve my writing, cause quite honestly I am terrible and I'm taking English again this summer semester.

I picked up a couple books I've been meaning to read which I'll get to very soon. I Am Malala "(The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot by The Taliban)". The other book is a young adult novel by John Green called "An Abundance of Katherines"

I just started reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I've never read any Harry Potter books until now.

Once i started them i couldn't put them down. Went through the final book twice.

Now I'm reading David Hume's Enquiry into Human Understanding and I'll be done with the LotR The Fellowship of the Ring by tomorrow. 95% time the books are better, but i think Peter Jackson did the books justice. There is very little he left out in this first one.
