finally got my books unpacked

Post  Flap Zappa on Thu Feb 09, 2012 12:28 am

First topic message reminder :

and I have only been here 18months now
but at last I got my books unpacked onto my nice new shiny bookshelf which we had custom built for us and it only took less than a week. Now if only I can find somewhere to put the third of a room full of other boxes from the shipping it will all be done and we will have a spare room back.

well I am waiting for march 1st when the next in the honor harrington series comes out. I started reading them a couple of years ago when I found the first few free on the baen website, the next is the 13th and there are a few supplementary spin offs as well. Great science fiction on an epic scale.

and only $6 to download.

I've never got into scifi tbh. Though I remember reading Childhood's End and The Chrysalids in school as part of an EngLit exam. I remember enjoying them mind so I might try again.
I tend to listen to talking books more than read these days tbh. Though a couple of years ago I was an avid reader with always a paperback on the go.

I unpacked childhoods end just yesterday Grinning
haven't read it for 20 or 30 years and cannot remember a thing about it, but I intend to read them all again one day.
I really enjoy science fiction, although there is a lot of rubbish sci fi, some is very good. Larry Niven, Issac Asimov, David Webber, Jerry Pournelle all produce excellent work.
One of my absolute favourites is a book called Lucifers hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry pournell and deals with a giant asteroid hitting the earth, going from the time it is discovered to the consequences and slow descent into barbarity after it hits. A cracking read.

I also love the diskworld books.

I think I will move this over to the bookshelf section as it seems to be developing that way

I've got alot of the diskworld books as radio adaptations. They make great listening Guards Guards and the one where Vimes goes back in time and meets himself as a young man (can't remember the title) are very good. R4Xtra b/c them alot and there's quite a few on torrent and newsgroup sites (if you're into that sort of thing).
Just remembered the title Nightwatch (only listened to it yesterday this alzeimers is really doing my head in lol!)
