For no particular reason, here’s what I am reading at the moment, and what I plan to read in the not-too-distant future.
- Our Oriental Heritage by Will Durant1
- The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. Not really sure what prodded me to try reading this book, as I rarely read fantasy of this sort, but I’m enjoying what I’ve read so far.
Of course, both of these books are monstrously long at around 1,000 pages a piece2. When I finish these, here are a few books I’m looking forward to reading in the near future:
- Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King3
- Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
- The Life of Greece by Will Durant
- Dangerous Women edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois
- Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
- VS Day by Allen Steele
- Great Baseball Writing by the editors of Sports Illustrated
- The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn
- Ball Four by Jim Boulton
- Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan4
As always, this list is a moving target that changes with my mood, but it should give some idea of what I’m looking forward to reading over the next few months.
- My third time reading this book, but my first time listening to the audiobook, which is quite good. ↩
- Or about 50 hours each as audiobooks. ↩
- Comes out on June 3. ↩
- I’ve been promising Michael I’d read one of his books for a long time now. He’s bought me enough beer so I owe him at least that much. ↩
