I'm currently reading Silverwing, which is a story about bats! It got adapted into a Canadian cartoon as well, so I watch episodes of the show as I read along, and they're quite different!
I plan to read all four books, but I already have my next big read picked out next.

what is everyone using to listen to audiobooks? i'm looking at audible. but i don't really want another subscription and i'm trying to stop giving amazon money.

My library card gives me access to Overdrive and RBDigital. Or I check out audiobooks from the library.  You could see if Overdrive or RBDigital have free books you can listen to.  I think they usually have the classics available for free.

I second checking out what your library has to offer. My library card gives me access to Hoopla, and one other (maybe Overdrive?) that I haven't even looked into yet. It's free as long as you have a library card, and you get 6 borrows a month with Hoopla, plus sometimes they run specials where select titles don't count toward your 6...often classics.

Now re-reading The Three Musketeers but in German, haha. Trying to brush up my skills. There's lots of unfamiliar vocabulary but it helps I've already read the book a couple of times. The last time was probably 15-20 years ago, though, and the film adaptations tend to take certain liberties.  :lol:

This is a lengthy project but I'm almost half way through! I gave myself permission to read other books in the meanwhile, though, so I went to the library to get a couple (now that they're open again, yay! :heart: )

I already read Piranesi by Susanna Clarke (the author of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell). A quick read and very enjoyable! I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy and detective stories / murder mysteries. Or someone who likes journalling, lol!

I started The Long Walk by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) again. It's my favorite book of his and I've read it I think 4 times. I was talking to a friend about his books and movies and remembered that the dude who did the Shawshank and Green Mile movies has the rights to The Long Walk. I think he could do it justice. So anyway, I'm reading it again.

I officially started reading Dune two days ago! I'm trying to read a minimum of two chapters a day, and just hoping I finish by the time the movie is out in October! I've never read a book quite this long and it's my first real venture into sci-fi, I've been enjoying it!

Totally not a “reading this for fun” book, but I’m reading ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’ for my job. I work as a production associate as well as graphic designer and the creative team is reading this one together!

A “I’m reading this for fun” book would be one called ‘Skogluft: Forest Air’. It’s all about bringing natural air and light into your spaces to improve happiness and health (aka going plant crazy in your office!)

Tianbao Fuyao Lu Also known as Legend of Exorcism. Its 221 chapters but only about 60 are translated  :cry:
 It also has a CGI donghua (animation).
So here's a premise: A human man with the power of Heart leads a team made up of a half-demon, wolf gege, one campy Foreigner, an encyclopedic nerd and a fish with hairy legs in the effort to keep Chang'an from the clutches of demons that want to take it over. Stolen from a review on novelupdates

I'm listening to Bulls*t Jobs by David Graeber and thinking about most of the jobs i've had in my life.

It's a really interesting book though. I haven't gotten to the part where any solutions are discussed but i would like to imagine a world where i can build web things for fun and read philosophy books like i did when i was first learning web development.

Before that i ready How Fascism Works by Jason Stanley which provides a really good explanation of how a government can have Fascist elements but not be completely Fascist. so yeah i enjoy the light reading :)

Currently reading The Horses Know by Lynn Mann. In this book's universe, horses choose humans to bond with which of course is what happened with the main character. It's really good so far.
