Still working my way through SW: Knight Errant. Really fun reading about Sith Space and seeing the different characteristics the warring lords take. Having a strong female lead is a nice change of pace too.

Just finished The Martian by Andy Weir today. Gripping stuff.

Please don't censored the film up!

Started on The 100 year old Man who climbed out the window and disappeared. So far so good.

Edit
Finished the main series
The ending seems a bit rushed, the story is all over the place at times, but kinda good

the innocents abroad - mark twain

I know most folk like mark twains fiction work, but for me nothing can beat his true stuff like this, a tramp abroad, life on the Mississippi etc.

a true genius with a sense of humour ahead of his time

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

3rd time I've tried to read this, having bought the paperback years ago. Finally got past the ropey opening with his wife. Its alright, but certainly not a favourite or one I imagine reading again. The movie is so much better.

Having managed to successfully ignore them for years and years, I'm actually reading my way through Harry Potter at the moment. :oops:

Just picked up a sci fi book called Europe in Autumn which a friend recommended. Will let you know.

Last book I finished reading was a re-read of the excellent Kolymsky Heights.

Just about to finish It by Stephen King. Feels like I've been reading it forever! Very much enjoyed it though. Might read another King book next.

Getting into Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Loving it so far - the bleak future and the escapism of immersing yourself in a virtual world
