Been nerding on books lately. With my newfangled big bookcase next to my bed, it's literally the first thing I see in the morning, so that probably helps. I'm slowly collecting the books I love the most but have read as audiobook for my bookcase. Got myself a nice printed version of Watchmen. Read the first part, but I should really revisit the rest soon. Backintheday I read it as PDF but print is so much nicer.

Also (finally) got myself a physical copy of the D&D PHB and made a D&D corner in my bookcase. Last session my character died, (heroically of course) so I got a bunch of spell cards for my new druid. Wrote him to be the member of a cult of informants who believe in Zoroastrian dualism (in a polytheistic world) wherein everything natural has good spirits, and everything man-made / technological removes those spirits and is thus evil. Basically a doomsday Luddite, because I think that's gonna be a lotta fun.

Picked up some scifi yesterday in the Audible sale - Bacigalupi, Le Guin and Chricton for the prize 'o two. I dove into sci-fi last year, but ended up running back to cozier nonfiction after a few months. But I want to give it another dive. ilex, I now have The Dispossessed and kb's interested too so we might have to do a Sci-fi club. Paging zebra2.

I'm totally down. If you feel like taking the reins and making the thread yourself, I'm in no way opposed. I haven't done much Le Guin before but something tells me I should.
