I have only a few minutes this morning before I have to leave to take the foster puppies for their first set of shots, and I'd like to use it to start a conversation.
Every so often I like to ask what people are reading. This kind of discussion breaks us out of our bubbles and introduces us to new ideas, and that is almost always a good thing.
I'll go first.
I just finished both of the books in John Scalzi's Collapsing Empire series (it's a trilogy, but the third book isn't out yet). With elements of hard SF, political intrigue, and a richly developed society background, it's not quite space opera but still captivating.
What I am supposed to be reading is a book on branding and marketing (Building a StoryBrand) but I haven't been able to block out enough time to really invest in reading and thinking about how I can integrate its ideas. But it is on my to-do list.
So, readers, tell me - what are you reading right now? Fiction, non-fiction?
