Listened to The Mist YEARS ago,
which was actually narrated by Stephen King.
was pretty cool.
The book of 5 rings.
Although I will say in comparison to Bob Woodward's new book Fire and Fury does come off as "embellished non-fiction." I took Fire and Fury with a big grain of salt, but Woodward's book was jaw dropping. I highly recommend it.
Thanks for putting the bug in my head about audio books. I checked one out at the library. It is a cd of a fiction book that I wanted to read but wasn’t sure when I’d get to it. Been listening to it in my truck. At first I didn’t know if I could do it as I’ve had attention problems and there are a lot of distractions while driving. Just took me a chapter to get hooked and now I’m into it. Pretty cool. Also got the BFG for the kiddies to listen to while we are driving.
Glad to hear it. I've gone through so many books in the car since August when I got the car.
On the Abolition of All Political Parties by Simone Weil Simon Leys (Introduction, Translator), Czeslaw Milosz (Contributor)
Same vein, or similar threads, as the three I recently mentioned. I recommend every one of the texts, wholeheartedly.
I’m listening to a book by Patrick Rothfuss called the Name of the Wind. It is a series called the Kingkiller Chronicles and there are two books. I’m really digging it and having fun listening to my first audio book.
Thanks for the recommendation; I just finished Name of the Wind and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am about to start Wise Man's Fear.
Audio books just on CD or is there an app for them?
There’s an app called Audible, but I’ve been having an easier time picking them up on cd from Half Price Books
@Problematique i just googled the above book. It’s the 11th in the series. I’m assuming you’ve read the others, correct? Is the series worth it. 11 books is a commitment.
@Qball1974 what was that King short story collection you like?
I need a new book. I like fiction but I’m listening to a fiction audio book so it might be better to read something a little different. Anyone got any nonfiction that is a must read (nothing ancient that is hard to read)? Religious, philosophy, self-help?
The Bachman Books four early novels by Stephen King,
The story was The Long Walk in the collection (loved it).
read that about 30 years ago. Had the hardback collectors addition. It didn't survive the trials and tribulations.
Absolutely, one of my favourite series that I've ever read. My father and I started the series together when the first book was released, back in 2004.
I bought the paperback in the late 80's if I remember right, absolutely fell in love with The Long Walk. Read it a few times over the years, last time was about 10-12 years ago tho. Still have the book, should give it another go
One of the weirdest nonfiction books that's a mix those topics above. Pickover is a math professor who is also a believer in ideas like ESP and other dimensional beings. The title tells the story: it's a mix of everything, almost a musings.
I just remembered this: one of the best books that I've ever read. Blackmore is another odd duck of the university system. She interviews scientists and philosophers on the meaning and nature of consciousness. Cannot recommend this more (even if it's been years and I've forgotten most lol).
Got the new SK novella "Elevation" on my Kindle cue but gotta finish "So Brave, Young, and Handsome" from Leif Enger which is really good.
I got to find more time to read.
Try shitting more.
