I'm part way through Hutchins' Mortality and I have Le Carrie's Tinker, tailor, soldier, spite lined up. Where should I go after that?

They're not exactly happy all the time, but I find Iain M. Banks' Culture Novels extremely optimistic. The characters themselves don't always have happy lives, but the Culture seems to be Banks' conceptualization of an interstellar civilization that just works.

I'm reading Dust of Dreams, book nine of Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series. Given my reading habits, it feels so strange to be immersed in the same fantasy world for two solid months.

Been filling in the few gaps in my fantasy classics reading, but I might need to switch to another genre for a book or two when this is over just for a change of pace.

Everyone's been posting what they're reading on the General Discussions board. I created a "I'm Currently Reading ..." board for just this purpose. Any other boards you guys think I should add?

I've always been this way.  I tend to have a nonfiction book I read in the mornings or right before bed, a "main" novel I read for long stretches at a time (GoT, currently), and a "secondary" novel or nonfiction that I read in snippets- waiting somewhere or whatever.  It gets a little out of hand. :)

I just finished reading Hyperion. The most engaging science fiction I've read in a long time. I'm a sucker for this story format!

"Above, another blue day, (upstairs) the room papered with green-capped-pink-faced dogs, and the button drawer, only apparitions move to perfection, there!  Pray the Lord to keep you from lying, there, O spectral stabat mater may I go out and play the violin outside to the town wearing its sinside inside and not a soul in sight.  Church bells inspissated the air, dropping it  in sharp fragments.  He sat down in his place at the table, excused by the falling weights of the bells, and motionless when they had done.  There, old vicary, congratulate my refuge, the saneside outside sheltering the insane inside: to present the static sane side outside to another outside saneside, to be esteemed for that outsane side while all the while the insaneside attacks your outsane side as though we weren't both playing the same game, and gone down Summer Street (singing unchristian songs) the inane sinside, pocketing a cool million wearing the shoutside outside and the doubtside inside, the vileside inside and the violinside outside skipping dancing and foretelling things to come all ye faithful, or thine own give we back to thee."

The Recognitions by William Gaddis

I want to paste this on the center of the sky, lie down in a breeze caressed meadow beneath it, and stare moonily at this quotation for five-or-so Summers...it is that fantastic to me.

Sony PRS-950 reader because I travel a lot for work. Books as first choice when I'm at home.

Backlit screens are too tiring for marathon reading sessions.

Hi folks.

I need two people who can step up to be moderators on this community, preferably people who are active on Google+. There's not much work to do besides keeping spam out and making sure legitimate posts don't get caught in the spam filter.

If you're interested, leave a comment.

+Ankur Sethi if you still need another mod, I'd be happy to help (since I spend much of my day in front of the computer with a G+ tab open somewhere).

Just finished reading "Age of Miracles."  It was very good, and a quick read.

I've been reading 1Q84 for a while now. I'm almost done, but this semester has slowed my roll to a crawl.

Great book, but I felt it could've used a better editor. Could've been about 25% shorter without losing any of its charm.

Currently reading: The Godling Chronicles: The Sword of Truth.

Just finished with "Beyond Hades" and I would give it 2 out of 5 stars. Not really worth the time spent. It was an interesting concept but the writing was generally pretty flat.
