Yo Imma let you finish but the Death Gate Cycle was Weis and Hickman’s best work.

(Also I’m reading the final book in the Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemison. Once that’s done I think I might re-read The Traitor Baru Cormorant in preparation for the sequel, or maybe start The Fifth Season. Back to vacation-mode for me!)

I am reading my daughter’s new novel. I will post it later, we are going to give the e version away on Amazon for awhile to get her name out there.

I am very proud of her and it is quite entertainjng

My next book will be The Emerald Mile. A book documenting a high water descent of the the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. :rowing_man:‍♂️

I do agree death gate was good. DL is nostalgic though! Those characters. Tanis, Raistlin, Kit etc. Stays with you.

Thanks Jared, I didn’t know about the Death Gate Cycle for some reason, checked it out and it will definitely be my next read.

I first started reading DragonLance Cronicles and Legends about 1990 and have read them just about constantly since!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation :grin:

Recently i have been reading a few books over and over it seems:

  1. Hungry Hungry Caterpillar
  2. Good night moon
  3. The going to bed book.

I read them every night!!!

If you need a little variety I’d recommend.

Before I go to sleep.
Also although not a bedtime story as such.
There’s a hippopotamus on my roof eating cake.

What a sneaky appearance :face_with_monocle:!

To throw in my 2c. One of my all-time favorites would be “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, and love loved “The Things They Carried”.

I’ve read all of them, including the short stories, and I would say the “Ender” sequels were my least favorite. The others, the Bean series and the Formic war series I thought were great. Always good to do a deeper dive into a world you are already invested in.
My problem is every time a new one comes out I feel I have to reread all the previous books so I don’t miss any nuances.It isn’t necessary, just my OCD…

Other than some of the ones mentioned above (looks like @Jonesy and I have the same taste in books) I enjoyed the Old Man’s War series by Scalzi, and though a bit outdated, anything by Niven and Pournelle.

The Wool trilogy by Howey is a new favorite too.

Also, not to be remiss in a War Dragons forum, McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series.
