I've seen so many adaptions of Pride and Prejudice (BBC's 6-Part from 1990s is the best I believe) that I probably wouldn't bother now, plus it's a bit Oprah Book Club.


So far, Pride and Prejudice is being a great read, just for the language and the writing. I think it would be difficult to capture the subtle hilarity of the book in any other medium. Her depictions of both male and female characters are more accurate than mere truth could manage.

A fantasy fiction series I've been reading for years.  Great characters and plot lines. Even named my car after my favorite character.... who just died....  i stopped reading it I cried for about an hour last night.

 :'( :'( :'(

My favorite is the Mord-Sith from the Sword of Truth series


OMG.  Terry Goodkind.  Mordsith are bad ass bitches. This is one of my favorite series.  Have we had this discussion?
 
Zedd, Richard, Kahlan, Nikki.  Gawddd  I loved that series.

It is without a doubt my favorite fantasy fiction series, and The Wheel of Time is a close second.

He was supposed to do a short series based on Nikki and Nathan Rahl, but unfortunately he passed away last year.

Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are

Book by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz

To date I have almost finished reading the title 🧐

A question. Does listening to audio books count as reading?

Yes. Audiobooks are books. Most of my "reading" is done with my ears.

I'm able to listen to favorite authors as I do chores around the house, ride herd on the cats when they're outside and during my workout at the gym.

No matter how the words get to your brain, it's reading.

Well trained and been made compliant....by our two cats.

Thanks.I think so to. For millions of years information was shared through our ears, while writing has only been around tens of thousands, maybe. Then my list of what I'm reading now just got a whole lot longer.
