I've tried to read A Prayer For Own Meaney three times now and can't get past the first few chapters. It's good, but I just can't seem to stick with it. It's like I know how tragic it's gonna be, and I just bail before it hits.
I'm reading 'The Martian' right now. Really enjoying it. I've had to stop myself from the watching the movie over the last year because I didn't want the book ruined, so I'm looking forward to watching that after it all!

How did you find it, @orianna?
Finished 'The Martian' the other night. Really enjoyed it... not sure if I want to watch the film, to be honest, I've not heard great things in comparison. Right now I'm looking for a short book to get me through to the end of the year.
So, here's my 'read' list for 2016, not including whatever else I pick up. It's actually 4-5 short of what I was aiming for but three of the books were bloody MASSIVE (over 1000 pages each) so I can let myself off.
Haunted Super You Sex at Dawn The Haunting of Hill House Quiet Genghis Kahn and the making... A New Earth... The Passage Backwards Hallucinations The Penultimate Truth The Knife of Never Letting Go Red Dragon Dead Funny The Martian
Someone got me the "Slash" autobiography. I'm not a huge fan but I can't put it down. We traveled similar Southern California "scenes" so I'm halfway expecting to read, "When I hung out with jxbx..." ...hehe...right!!
This year, I began to read All of Haruki Murakami's work. Fantastic Writer!
I starting with 1Q84 In January of this year. I so far I finished Dance Dance Dance, Norwegian Wood, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Kafka on the Shore and A Wild Sheep chase.
I just started his latest book (2013) Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki.
But im also reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and A Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
both of which i find myself going to more than CTT.
I read "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" and it was outstanding. Thanks for reminding me again of his work.
After reading this exchange, I decided to check 1Q84, I finished the first of the three books..I am definitely enjoying the writing. Thanks for sharing! I passed by a used bookstore yesterday and found a few jems: Zen Master Dogen by Yokoi Imperial Japan: The Art of the Meiji Era Talk to a Stone by Shinagawa Enso: Zen Circles of Enlightenment

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
