What are Nerdforumers reading right now?

I've been reading A Blight of Mages by Karen Miller. When I first bought it, I thought it was a stand alone novel, but it turns out it's a prequel to a series of books. I feel slightly guilty reading it, I must be missing a lot of references towards characters that the author wrote in for people who have read the other books.

I'm really into it though. Every time I pick it up, I get sucked into it and the next thing I know it's two hours later. I'll definitely be buying the books that follow.

I’m kinda disappointed in myself. Both Butcher and Abercrombie have had a book out for the past three months and I have yet to look either up. And I have a damn B&N gift card for both, it’s pure laziness on my part.

I just finished vol 7 of the translated Boku wa Tomodachi novels. The new season of the anime started Thursday so I decided to study up and downloaded em on my Nook.

The new season of Boku wa Tomodachi is coming out? I just finished the first season not long ago, I loved it. I'll have to make time to watch this one, too.

Yup. Sena’s seriously cray-cray. The novels are good. The dude who’s translating them doesn’t know how to use dialog tags, but, I mean, it’s fan done, so you get what you pay for. Plus, he’s just a guy doing it for fun, not professional or anything. I gave it a ‘like’ click.
BTW, has anyone else ever been to the site Goodreads? I just found it and am instantly in lesbian with it.

I have this massive list of books, I've only recently gotten back into reading. >_< Started Great Expectations, trying to read some classics and catch up with the literate general population.. only a third of the way in, it's quite the challenging read, I keep having to stop and pick up a dictionary. Makes me feel bad about myself. Haha. I've developed a liking for Jeffrey Deaver too and I've only read two of his books.

Just because it’s a classic doesn’t mean you have to read it. That being said, just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it.

If you’re reading for fun, skip the things you don’t like. The only reason I finished Atlas Shrugged was for class. I hated the characters, the story, the message, everything about that ‘classic.’ I guess if you’re just reading them to be able to say you have or just discuss them with others, then I can understand.

At the moment I'm chewing through the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, and the Bakuman graphic novels by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata (the ones responsible for Death Note).

I've just started reading through the Discworld novels myself. I'm about halfway through The Colour of Magic.

Yeah I finished TCoM a while ago, devoured The Hunger Games trilogy in a week, and now juggling The Light Fantastic and The Lord of The Rings for the 2nd time in my life (the new film got me back in the mood ;)). Pratchett's books are quirky and unique but I think they're a great read! I think it's his style of writing that hooked me haha :D

I am currently re-reading the Enderverse, to catch up with two new books I have not read yet.

So far, this time, I have read:
  • Ender's Game
  • Speaker for the Dead
  • Xenocide
  • Children of the Mind
  • Ender's Shadow
  • Shadow of the Hegemon

I'm currently reading Shadow of the Giant, after which I will read the newest two novels in the series, Ender in Exile and Shadows in Flight, in that order (I prefer to read them by order of publication, not chronologically).

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Also, for my own pleasure, I started reading the Bible, in lolcat....
