I just started working through a strange collection recommended to me by a work colleague - The Instrumentality of Mankind by Cordwainer Smith. It's all classic scifi from the 50s and 60s and very... strange. But interesting.

Just finished Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock. Pretty fun to read with an open mind. Theory/evidence of ancient lost civilization.

And Illusions by Richard Bach, wish I would have read that much earlier.

Best American Short Stories 2010. Some years are better than others, probably has a lot to do with the guest editor for that year, but 2010 seems very good. I like the stories he chose.

Is that the year with "Donkey Greedy, Donkey Get Punched" with Richard Russo as guest editor?

At the very least, read "Backbone" and watch his commencement speech "This is Water."

If that isn't appealing, you could always take up cutting.

It's an extremely terrible read. It's a brilliant plot, but there are so many problems with the book it's difficult to withstand.

Right now I'm reading Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami. It's a fairly fascinating read, as a great introspection into an interesting character's mind, with just enough weird fantasy and gay porn thrown in.
Why did you find EG to be a terrible read? It's certainly not poetic, and the dimensions of the war room are hard to visualize via Card's description, but it's not hackneyed.

My daughter loved Ender's Game. I think it's her favorite book.

I abandoned Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston because I bought it during a snowstorm at an airport to kill time. Any tips for getting back into a novel again after being away from it for awhile. It's half done.

I just watched his "This is Water" commencement speech for an Informal Logic class. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Didn't know anything about him prior to that. Checked the book store, and he's written quite a bit. Are his novels any good? Anything I should definitely read? Anything to stay away from? I prefer fiction over nonfiction.

While I'm in the thread, I should mention that I'm looking for some recommendations. Author recommendations, really. I tend to get attached to authors. If I read a book and really enjoy it, then I tend to work my way through that author's works trying to find another gem. Anybody have an author in which you've loved most of their books? Fiction, please. Anything that's not Sci-Fi or courtroom related. Other than that, I'm game. As it stands, I've read nost everything from guys like John Irving, Carl Hiaasen, Jonothan Tropper, Larry McMurtry, and Chad Klutgen.

Contemporary or classic?

Contemporary:
Frank McCourt start with Angela's Ashes. You will cry but you will also laugh. Incredible storyteller.

Classics:
Jane Austen start with Pride and Prejudice.
