    At some point I will get around to re reading Book 3 Oathbreaker but as I have it in hard back & it’s not exactly the most portable of books ( I do most of reading on public transport & in Coffee Shops )

    I remember my reaction to Oathbringer (that's actually a title, I know, I made this mistake too): "I don't know about this...", and then Dalinar confronted the Big Bad with a book like a BOSS and now he is my favorite character (Sorry, Kaladin and Jasnah).

    Ha! NotW! I haven't read that in...five years? Not since around WMF came out. The Legendarium Podcast (highly recommend it if you haven't listened to them) explain that he's so successful because he's narrating his own story. If we talked to other people in the story outside of Kvothe's narration we'd find out the story was...less than what we hear. But I guess that's also a given.

    But the looks of astonishment as you read the behemoth in public are always worth it. ;)
    I'll do my Cosmere re-read when Book 4 gets a release date and/or when Mistborn 7 is about to come out.

    "YOU CANNOT HAVE MY PAIN." The entirety of Unity brings me to tears at times.

    Cadia Stands, about the planet Cadia and their battle to save the planet from siege and destruction. This is in the Warhammer Universe.

    Rothfuss is following GRRM's footsteps with the third book, only he has relative youth on his side. But, it's hilarious that Kingkiller Chronicle trilogy is supposed to be just an intro to a larger story.

    I know Kvothe is unreliable narrator, but in certain moments, I am like:

    The world is great thought and I want more of some side characters. I'll get over it.

    Man, I might reread the series now (once I'm done with Kingkiller).

    I have tried on three different occasions to read Name of the Wind. The writing itself is beautiful but the plot is just not that interesting.

    It got better about half way in, which is some where around page 1000000. LOL It is long and over does some details now and then but I loved it.

    BTW, it's not that great. You get some unnecessary gay characters pushed on you, a sex scene (both totally not necessary in Star Wars, just totally not necessary to the story), and some other mildly interesting background on the handmaidens.

    Still plugging along with Asimov's Robots/Empire/Foundation Universe, up to the point of re-reading the Foundation Trilogy. Foundation finished and Foundation And Empire up next. In addition to these I've been reading this...

    It's been a LONG time since I read The Right Stuff and I don't really know all that much about Shepard besides what's in the film and that great episode of From The Earth To The Moon about Apollo 14. He gets mentioned a lot in all these other astronaut bios I've read (particularly Gene Cernan's, who was Alan's backup on 14) so I thought I would read up on the man himself.

    Just finished duel of the fates. And just started the "Der letzte Jedi" (The last Jedi) novelization, thanks to the great guys at starwars-union.de who let me win one of their prizes from their 19 years anniversary competition.
