Social What are you currently reading?

Going back through to re read the legend of drizzt on Kindle. Started with the dark elf trilogy, have read homeland, exile, and am now 3/5 of the way through sojourn. All in the matter of 3 days! That's like 800 pages or some shit lol. And read the Hobbit over the past week or something since Christmas. High fantasy is currently distracting me from the misery of my modern existence, pangs of loneliness cured by reliving adventures I read through childhood. Making a hermetic existence not so bad actually.

I m reading the Marseilles trilogy of Jean Francois Izzo (currently Solea, the third book) , super recommended if you like crime noir literature . For work I m reading a lot of Philosophy of Science, in case someone is interested I recommend Godfrey-Smith´s Theory and Reality, Chalmers What is Philosophy of Science and Ladyman "Understanding Philosophy of Science
 
Game of Thrones. I started reaching the series a week ago, and I love it so far. My sister got me the first book on Bookworm Era for my Bday and I'm really grateful for that. The story is too captivating.
do you think that fucker will ever finish The winds of Winter? Man I m afraid the only ending we ll ever have is that BS of the HBO one....
 
Trying to reread Chasing theDragon: Into the heart of the golden triangle. By Christopher R. Cox.
It is written in the 1990's and is about a writer trying to find and meet General Khun Sa who was thought to before 9/11 and Afghanistan to control 1/3 of the world heroin supply.
He was in Burma( Myanmar) and had an army in for the Shan's peoples resistance against the Burmese government and controlled the Opium trade their.
He was actually media friendly, but he would eventually dissappear and died years later.
It is more a book about the difficulty getting there, than issues with the man himself, Khun Sa.
There is a lot of stuff about him and what's true and isn't maybe hard to tell, but he did have power and a private army of thousands and many who depended on him in this remote part of the world.
I got this book so long ago, I forgot most of it, but it was a fascinating read and I am trying to read it again, as things in the world change, but this unique part of history is something I find fascinating.

Especially now, that everyone is focused on House of Dragons - I believe Marting himself is also involved in the writing, so yeah.
 
'The Secret Teachings of All Ages' - Manly Palmer Hall

~8-900 pages of absolute brilliance. Not the kind of book you'd read from start to finish, but a book that I recommend everyone read. There's PDFs available onling however I always buy a copy. Mine is riddled with annotations and underlines and its been all over the world with me and I might need to buy a fresh copy soon.
 
The Language of Thorns by: Leigh Bardugo

Adult retellings of fairy tails we've grown up with. I highly recommend, if you have an e-reader, getting a digital copy. I had a physical copy, but I had to go to good will; there were too many books and not enough space. kindle copy now in my 10 GB library

One Dark Window and Two Twisted Crowns from the Shepard King Duology by: Rachel Gillig "Maiden, Monster, Martyr."

Again, a dark fairy tale that will keep the reader guessing, and a little-known author that I ran into last year. I highly recommend these books.

This Day is Dark by: R.H. Sin

Oh, this poetry just gutted me—a part of myself torn out and put back together. Read one poem or page a day. Do not get the physical copy; it's poorly bound. Get the digital copy.

Fourth Wing, and Iron Flame The Empyrean Duology by: Rebecca Yarros

The hype is real for this duology; oh, it's so good! I won't spoil it. I haven't read books this good in the fantasy genre sense since The Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo last year.
 
The Sixth Extinction
Non fiction and really scary great book
^^^ That sounds like quite an interesting library !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I find geological and scientific books so fun to read when I have time to relax. Here are some of my little gems off of my bookshelf.
