 This is the link Mom sent...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-Hur:_A_Tale_of_the_Christ

When I need to stay up for 24hrs to reset my clock I take up the trilogy in one book called the Black Jewel series. There is more to this serious but I love these three books.

This is a great series.  I love it.  I can't wait for the next book in the series.

This is just damn crazy!  How you can go through so many damn books @Druss, I just don't understand. xD

xD Read while you walk?!?!  Nuts. xD 

Currently, I'm reading The Final Empire: Mistborn Book 1 by Brandon Sanderson, and I'm loving it1  I've also recently started the Dresden Files, which I've enjoyed so far.

I’m reading the final book in a trilogy based on Ireland (my spiritual home and family roots), by Juliet Marilier. 

Does this include Audible books? If so, I’m also listening to The Passage, first book in a trilogy I started reading a few years back. This book completely ruined other books for me - I can no longer read substandard books. This one showed me what great writing can be like! I loved it. Now the final book is out, I’m re reading the first two but struggling to read, so Audible is the best thing ever.

@Timberwolf me too! And, good god, the amount I’ve gone through. In a way, audio books can be better than reading books because the narrators can be so good and bring extra life to it. For example, the Angelmaker, Nick Harkaway, comes to life when narrated in a way the book doesn’t. 

Some narrators are awful though. Some of the best audio books though? Harry Potter narrated by Stephen Fry. Oh god yes.

I have two books I've been reading recently: 

Here & There, by Joshua V. Scher  There's a lot of talk of about quantum physics and it's written in a style that requires a little thought about what perspective it's coming from at any given time, but I've been enjoying it.

Drums of Autumn, by Diana Gabaldon  Book 4 of the Outlander novels. I don't normally go for the historical romance, but I love the TV show and after the first half of season one I knocked out the entire series, and am now going through it for a third time. *shrugs* Turns out I enjoy the occasional bodice ripper.

I don't like Stephen Fry - I know, controversial right? xD

I will admit you aren’t the only one. My mum doesn’t like him. However she did admit his narration is pretty awesome.

Most of the Chinese & Korean ones are 1 translated chapter a day. 😀

      ... who is still a book purist? The only one without a Kindle (and who doesn't ever want one)? The only one who still requires her pages be paper and her words be ink? To feel. To smell. To nearly taste. Reading for me is visceral. Books hold magic. Technology is great, but Tolkien would weep to see his books read on a cold, flavourless, magicless screen. I love tech. But, I have no place for it when it comes to my books. When it comes to the telling of stories in the written word, the printing press is as modern as I get. But, I know I am not among a majority here. I just wondered if I'm the ONLY one here (other than @Squarepeg, that is - I know he's as anti e-reader as I am).

      Though, I was talking to @hirondelleabout this last night, and I think it would be a good idea, but to keep it as simple as possible, and to keep the cost down.
      I also decided to make it a poll so people can vote on it.
