    I think a lot of his earlier works are better then what he releases now. That being said i started reading the final W&W book yesterday and it is still miles better then most modern shit on the market.

    I haven't done a lot of reading lately. Mostly because my headphones are utter shit and keep crapping out of me. I need to get new headphones

    I've read through two novels since Mistborn, A Stranger Upstairs which was mid, and I'm finishing Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett and it's great.

    Yes, that does happen early on and it is written as just as horrible as you imagine it to be. I think a running theme in this book is corruption and decay, given that the protagonist has leprosy and this incident will also fall under those themes. It is a good book so far though, albeit very upsetting in a lot of areas.

    I just finished When I'm Dead which I got as an early release from Book of the Month and it was way better than last months. I'm thinking of reading dune but I also want to try some of these cheap ebooks I got.

    Dune is very good but it's also massive. I'd recommend leaving it for a long plane ride or a powercut day

    I think I will probably start reading some Esperanto sci-fi short story collection books I got. Seriously, I heard rumors UEA is going to discontinue their book service soon so I am not sure where I will get them after that. I prefer physical copies of books
