    Re: What are you reading in 2017?

    Right now, I am reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". It is an awsome psychological thriller novel by Stieg Larsson O_O
    Great characters, great story, very thoughtful and intelligent.
    By the way, I am going to start using eBooks for reading, even though I love paper books so that I can highlight, underline and scribble down notes.
    It would be great if someone help me to choose a good eReader, cause I am not an expert

    All help and suggestions will be much appreciated.

    the millennium books were good.

    still think the first was the best.

    Yeah, the last one got a little convoluted.

    I haven't read a word of it but it's already my all-time favorite book.

    I'd rather read it two more times than watch Forrest Gump again.

    Just started reading Pin Action: Small-Time Gangsters, High-Stakes Gambling, and the Teenage Hustler Who Became a Bowling Champion

    It's like Rounders but with bowling.

    the first book, for me, was a good thriller/whodunnit kinda plot. the second was the courtroom one, right? and the last kinda struggles to catch my memory.

    have to say, the films were the same. noomi rapace carried all three but couldn't keep the quality going as they went on.

    The third one was more courtroom. Second was kidnapping and biker gangs.

    I thought the first was an overrated thriller/whodunit. Seemed to me it was hugely popular among people who apparently hadn't read much better books in that genre. After the first book, the series goes downhill.

    I decided to try to read a ton of Murakami books after reading my first one, Hard Boiled Wonderland, at the end of last year. Pretty into him

    I'm still dutifully carrying out my responsibility to the kids I work with by reading lots of comics. The Vision, collected in two trade paperbacks, is amazing.

    thought it was better than that but yes, the series didn't hold up as they progressed.

    I've heard a lot of good things about Paper Girls. There's also another Image comic out about the 4 horsemen called East of West.

    Re: What are you reading in 2017?

    The Fleet at Flood Tide by James D. Hornfischer.
    It is about the US Navy battles against Japan during the least two years of the war. His book, Neptune's Inferno, about the battles at Guadalcanal was outstanding and I am really looking forward to his newest book.

    Is that part of a planned Pacific theater trilogy?

    I have the Liberation trilogy about the war in Europe. I read the first one last year (An Army at Dawn) about the Africa campaign. The second volume is about taking on Italy and the last part is from D-Day on.

    No I wish that it were as the books written by Rick Atkinson about the US fight in Europe, are 3 of the best books that I have ever read on the subject. The Guns at Last Light is one of my most favorite books that I have ever read.

    I read both of the Toll books, and will read the third when it comes out, and they were both good reads. I think that when it comes to the subject of the Pacific war, the best books have been by John B. Lundstrom, Tully/Parshall on Midway, and the Hornfischer books.
    I am eaten up with military history and almost on a daily basis, I will still read parts of Guns at Last Light.

    I started Stephen King's It, which is the last of the mega-long King books I hadn't gotten to yet, I believe.

    Ever read The Stand?

    I just finished a few books by Lisa Jackson. Murder mysteries set in Montana. Kinda gruesome but enjoyable anyway. 2 female detectives solve the crimes and catch the serial killers.
