This topic doesn't work quite well so group it is
How to join & Group Rules:

  • leave a comment in this thread about last book you read, then send a request through Steam,
  • when winning a GA mention a book or author instead of "thanks".
    example: "History of Sparta". Did you know that Spartans were unbeatable till they forgot about Lycurgus austerity laws and indulged in luxury?

FAQ:

  • about applying and GA comments - just a title (or quote) doesn't count, describe your impressions at least in a couple words,
  • any book discussions here are also welcome, no need to join the group.

Legion and Skyward
out of the big list from Brandon Sanderson. I better stop here, else this post will get wayyy to long.


Btw. just saw there is a new public book available from him - playing in the Magic universe. Not sure if I am allowed to share it directly..(I won't)

Problem is that the website redirects you to your language....
English countries: https://magic.wizards.com/en/story

Others who get redirected have to use a proxy like: https://hide.me/de/proxy ....

Excuse me? Bot in? I don't use any bots and I believe that I was kicked before that and entered that giveaway via other steam group.

I don't use any bots

Then you really have no excuse

and you're not a member of the other group, I double-checked before kick. Also you haven't left a single comment since joining - all symptoms of a leech

Okay that's just not true. I'm a member of multiply steam groups that were able to join that giveaway. For example - Dank Side of Force, Original_Giveaway_Group and Broccoli Appreciation. And I do remeber having conversation about book in the comments of the "Stereo Aereo" game. You can double check this, but it's all ok, if you don't want me in the group.

Sorry to meddle, but I think Nera meant commenting in the Literature Club group. Furthermore, just be honest with yourself mate, your purpose in the site is to win the more games possibly while contributing the less amount you can.

Oh, if in the group it self, then yeah I'm not active there.
If you want to touch on this topic - I share games whenever I have opportunity, don't want to bother you with my story, again as I said, I respect the decision.

As for last book I've read - last weekend I've read The Freeze-Frame Revolution by Peter Watts. He is probably my most beloved modern-age hard-sci-fi author, yet as much as I loved this book (still rated it 5/5) it's probably my least favoritue of his works. Beggining and setting are awesome, but conclusion is dissapointing, not really bad but sth I'd expect from space opera, or other soft sci-fi book, not from heavy science-based hard sci-fi.

Also for anyone intrested - my GR profile - yet it's missing a few books I've read in 2018, gonna update them when I have some more free time ;p

Such a Long Journey by Rohinton Mistry - Novel portraying an Indian family, tribulations, poverty and politics with such descriptive narrative and strong characters. I enjoyed reading this whilst travelling through southern India.

I'm currently reading the Storia del giappone by Kenneth G. Henshall. This is because at the moment I am living a phase of intense love for Japanese culture, in fact I am also studying the language and the kitchen, but returning to the book describes the history of Japan from the Paleolithic up to the present day

I recently finished Dan Simmons' Olympos, the sequel of Iium, and I loved it.
Robots, Greek Gods, ancient greek warriors and Shakespeare. All in one!

I finished yesterday Twelve Chairs by Ilya Ilf, it was even cuter and funnier than the movie. :3
I'm in the middle of reading Lód by Jacek Dukaj (sadly no English translation so far) and today I started Nest of the Worlds by Marek S. Huberath.

Последней книгой, которую я прочитал, был "Звездный молот" Кристофера Раули.
Межзвездные путешествия, инопланетные расы, древние машины - это так завораживает, что прочитал от корки до корки за 2 дня xD
Надеюсь когда-нибудь по этой книге сделают игру)

I do not know if it counts but I just bought Playing with Super Power! A guide on NES. I was recommended, and well I'm starting with that, it's a look at the console and its main games with data not revealed so far, tricks and curiosities. Curious and to my surprise comomico at the same time hahaha ... the design of the book has the appearance of an American cartridge of SNES, with a rigid dust jacket to protect even better the volume. : D
