    Yeah, my lack of knowledge was not enough to undermine my enjoyment, but I must confess I was left pretty nonplussed with a great deal of what actually occurred within 3 Body, and ended up skimming over quite a lot of it.

    I liked Oathbringer but it's part 3 of 10 and already a massive series.

    Has anyone read Ann Leckie's Raven Tower?
    I've enjoyed her other work so far, so wondering if this is worth reading.

    Read Gone girl recently. After having watched the movie I was hoping for the book to have a different ending. Just so deeply unsatisfying.

    Has anyone on here read any of the Warhammer 40K books?

    And if so where to start, there seems to be so many, jeepers

    Read the first 4 pages of Hamlet in 30 odd minutes today solely because the librarian is cute. Not a bad book.

    To be fair my reading speed was hampered by factors I couldn't attribute to the book's content.

    Are we talking getting distracted by cute librarians or Hamlet? Agree with both anyway.

    I wouldn't have read a single book if I'd discovered Internet forums as a kid/young adult. They're poison for your attention span.

    I read *two* books over the entire summer. Pretty shameful effort, tbh. Most of that came when I didn't have internet access.
