Cradle is so much fun. It is 'progressive fantasy' where the characters level up. All the books are very fast paced.

Currently reading through The Society of the Sword trilogy from the free Prime Reading library. It's not terrible, but is a bit rough around the edges.

On a positive note.... I'm surprised at how comfortable I am reading on the kindle.

I really love my Kobo. Does the Kindle have an similar e-paper screen? I occasionally miss the feel of holding a "real" book, but the vast majority of my reading for fun happens on the Kobo these days. Being able to have backlight, set the font size, etc. is great.

I've never used a Kobo so I can't offer a direct comparison, but the Kindle is definitely an e-paper style screen (the power-off front page image is a neat trick :) ), and it's got adjustable back lit, and font size options. I tend to do most of my reading laying down so the printed stand I made up (pictures in the 3D printing threads) is perfect.

They look very similar, the Kobo and Kindle. Cool stand!

Not what I am reading, yet anyway, but a question. I finished that Louis L'Amour book Hondo, and it was good, but have any of you read Zane Grey? How would you compare him to L'Amour's style?

Had no idea what this was about before I bought it when on sale. Actually seemed enjoyable so far. But I think it may be fantasy romance. Which ain't my thing in the slightest.

This was really good. Way too raunchy at times for me. But was still really enjoyable.


Finally starting new Cradle.

I don't know why but I can't bring myself to finish the Altered Carbon trilogy, I'm stuck on the second book and just feels soo 'thick'/slow if that makes sense.
