I am trying to read during the school year (which is not easy for me to find time for :cry: ). Little passages of a 500+ pager at a time right now.
Freightful's Mountain by Jean Craighead George. Its the third in a series of books about a boy who runs away and lives in the woods of upstate New York. This time the book is centered around Freightful the peregrine falcon that the boy Sam raised and trained. Its not as good as the last book which wasn't as good as the first book, that said its still a good read.
Wow; a 3-day off period and I get delusions of grandeur that I can read whenever I want. :p Many students have talked about John Green's books, specifically The Fault in Our Stars. So I read this very quick read. About teenagers and their issues with cancer. Very interesting; included some SW and literary references. I got the edition with author Q&A in the back. Don't know if I'll become a regular reader of his, though.
Kenobi ~ by John Jackson Miller. Obbers lands on a certain twin sunned planet and shenanigans ensue. Actually it was pretty good, it took a bit for me to get into it but it was good. Obi gets a new first name, learns about Krayt Dragon calls, Tuskens and embezzlement all while keeping an eye on Luke.
Got an ARC of Honor Among Thieves. So far (which isn't too far yet, actually), not bad, but a little typical of Han-centric stories.
I have a wife who somehow got chosen for Amazon Vine. The good thing is there are free books. The bad thing is that she orders all sorts of crap because it's free, and now it's just crap in the house. :)
A four-day weekend with very little grading means I can read. I can read!
William Least Heat-Moon's An Osage Journey to Europe: 1827-1830. It's a translation of French documents about six Native Americans who travelled to Paris and other European cities. They were seen as a sideshow by many, and taken advantage of by some of the Americans who took them there. Many racist and ignorant comments from the time, but in comparing three different sources, you get to what likely was true.
William Shatner's Tek Power. I had this book in my possession for a couple years. So I started it, realizing it was a very fast read. It's about a future where people are denying that a virtual reality "fad" is addictive, where an African American president gets replaced by an android replica, and there's an earthquake that comes out of nowhere. The main character seems to get out of his scrapes far too easily, while everyone else seemingly dies with no problem. It was so-so.
