@urrutiap I literally just finished that yesterday. I've started the Dune Sequence for the first time in prep for the movie. I was less impressed by this compared to the original which I found to be an epic adventure. Messiah was mostly a lot of chapters full of people discussing politics in rooms. I'm hoping Children of Dune improves things.

I'm taking a break from that at the moment though to start Star Wars: The High Republic: Light of the Jedi.

I'm also making my way through Sandman (not sure if there's a comic book thread for that).

Dark mode or go home.

Sanndman I assume you mean NNeil Gaiman's Sandman? Funny you mention that since I just started reading his novel Neverwhere.

as for the new Star Wars High Republic, I just got the hardcover of the book from Walmart couple of weeks ago. I should start reading that too besides reading Neverwhere

@urrutiap yes, Neil Gaiman's Sandman. I haven't read them since college when I borrowed them from the library but I recently began collecting graphic novels so I'm looking to complete the Sandman set. Only on Vol 2 at the moment.

Is it hard or not enough time to read? I have been thinking about buying it for a long time, but many of my friends did not like it.

I finally decided to read The Lord Of The Rings. I am a big fan of movie trilogy but I've never read books

I'm Mary and I love painting, plants, and people.

@M0rriss Hey, sorry for the late reply, you didn't tag me so I only saw this today, it isn't hard to read at all, but it is "of it's time" so many young people today may not like it, not that I am old, I am just able to appreciate stuff from a different time, so if you can do that ,too, you should enjoy it.

I am not in the middle of this activity, but I have recently been reading tiny bits of pages or paragraphs from my xerox copy. It’s titled Republic by Plato. I don’t know if I would have the absolute level of understanding to comprehend the book's Socratic dialogue, more so when I had a hard time reading between the lines of Socrates’ trial. The language back then was not very straightforward — even harder than the Regency Period, if I may! Anyhow, I am still checking if it’s actually worth it to buy a hard copy of the said book. Any thoughts from you guys?

Currently reading Meena Kandasamy's Exquisite Cadavers- it is SO MOVING!
I am also reading Born a Crime, especially the young learner's version for teaching it this fall. I of course enjoyed the normal edition more

Reading Hail Mary, by Andy Weir. Great so far. As good as the Martian. His second book Artemis was below average, but this one is great.
