Current Reading πŸ“š

After finishing the rest of the Nightflyers and other Stories by George R.R. Martin I continued with the first of the Murderbot Diaries, All System Red, by Martha Wells. It is a great read and I will surely read the remaining stories. I’m currently just wondering whether I buy them or simply use one month of Storytel, which would in fact be the cheaper option. Not sure yet.

While I think about that, I’m listening the Audible original audio-drama Alien – Out Of The Shadows. I’m half-way through and so far it is a fun listen.

In terms of podcast listening, I kept up with Limetown and some episodes of Daniel and Jorge explain the UniverseΒ which were very informative and fun.Β 

I got lots of reading done during the last few days. First I finished the audiobook of George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers and enjoyed the story and reading a lot. Somehow the story had this “Shining-vibe” to it. Also I started to read (as in actually reading) V.E.Schwab’s first book in the Villians series – Vicious and have a hard time putting it down. What a great and fast read and I guess I will be through it within this week.

Got me a few more audio-books at the current Audible 2-for-1-sale. Scalzi: The Androids Dream & Agent to the Stars, Stephenson: The Diamond Age and the Complete Blackwater Saga by Michael McDowell. Now I only need the time to listen to them. πŸ“š

The other day I finished the audiobook of Stephen Fry’s Mythos. It was both educating and entertaining. It was bit difficult to follow the names of all the gods. After looking a bit around I decided to continue with the audiobook of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. πŸ“š

Currently “Reading” πŸ“š

I have been listening to audiobooks plenty before but since I started to use Storytel, the audiobook streaming thingy I wrote earlier about, I have been a bit on binge.

After having finished Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry I continued re-reading Douglas Adams’s Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy read by Stephen Fry. I enjoyed how his reading brought the book to life, which also reminded me how much I liked his podcast when it was still around1.

What’s next on my Reading List πŸ“š

Many things work better for me when I have a goal, a deadline or something like this and finding motivation for reading is not that different. Now that I finished my last book it is time to think what I want to read next.

Yes, there is a lot of Scalzi in this list, but hey, he’s great and the first two books are like a collection of blog posts from this site (which is actually a great read in itself).
