    I'm not that far into it myself. I quite like it, but I think it might be the effect of him reading it. I suspect I might have been quite annoyed with It if I was reading it on the page as well, it could come off as a bit pretentious, but his delivery of the narration suits it.

    But I'm definitely not as in love with it as I was with Gaiman

    Ancient Greece by Robert Garland. It's a great overview of how the Ancient greeks lived, and while it can get a bit dry, he does a good job of keeping the information organized and easy to understand.

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll. A friend and O are doing a 12 months, 12 books challenge, and February's challenge was to read a book recommended by a friend. She suggested Alice tome, and I suggested Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett for her.

    I'm also on-off reading A Legacy of Magick by Ellen Dugan, when I get a spare moment.
    She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness. ~~(=^._.^)

    I got my war paint on and I'm off to go passive-aggressive all over these socially awkward man-witches.

    Ooh! I should check this one out.

    I'm still working on Mythos, but I just bought Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, so that's next on the docket. I just can't decide if I'm bringing real books to Mexico, or my kindle!

    In my opinion I'd bring one actual book with your kindle, so that if you only have a moment or it's low batteries, you'd still have a chance to read. Also, Garland has other books like Egypt, Viking, etc that I'm gonna have to check out.

    I just found a copy of Pagan Spiritualityby Joyce and River Higginbotham on my bookshelf so I suppose I'll start that too.

    The Expanse series. On number 7, the last one.

    Big space opera.

    Dan Brown's "The Origin". Very good - his usual formula.

    I just started Through the Looking Glass. A friend and I are doing a 12 books in 12 months challenge and February's theme is reading a book suggested by a friend, and I never did read the Alice books as a kid. So I'm doing them now.

    This has been on my radar forever. Thanks for reminding me to find a kindle version of it.

    I'm finished Mythos, also finished Ready Player One (which is SO GOOD btw - I blew through it in two days flying home from Mexico) and now I'm onto "Ask a Queer Chick: a guide for sex, love, and life for girls who dig girls". I needed something in the airport, and it's pretty funny and light.

    In audiobooks, I just finished Bram Stoker's Dracula - Medusa, if you haven't listened to it yet, you should! It was a great performance (and I know how you like them vampire and zombie books )
