Pawley's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank *strange start, IMO who is speaking in first person? The starting chapters each character did it, now only one character apparently.

I've just finished reading The Farseer Trilogy (Assassin's Quest) by Robin Hobb.

And I've just started the great classic 1984 by Orwell.

Do you re-sell them afterwards?

I keep all my books... Except the ones I've been made to buy for uni and that I hate.

Some mediocre fantasy trilogy called "The Book of Deacon". Found it among the free kindle ebooks collection. Bit amateurish in terms of writing style and also overall but the storyline is decent.

I give them to my Grandma, who then passes them on to my aunts, then my stepmom sometimes gets them. Afterwards, the hardbacks go to a small town library for their annual book sale. My stepdad's mom has a used paperback bookstore, so she gets those.

Default Re: Which book do you currently read?

The last two books I read were The Dirty Streets of Heaven by Tad Williams and Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett.

Currently I'm reading Neuromancer by William Gibson.

After that, I'll probably start JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy.
