    This is what I'm currently reading, having finished The Wheel of Time series, just wondering how many of us here are avid readers? If you have read The Wheel of Time series and enjoyed that, check out The Lightbringer series of which The Black Prism is the first book in the series, half way through and this book is riveting I have to say. :)

    I've already bought the second book in this series and it is just waiting for me to turn mine eyes to it.

    Edit: btw the Kindle Paperwhite is currently $30 off for Father's Day, so feel free to pick one up for yourself or someone else!

    Also, when do you typically read? I tend to like reading later in the day, but mostly at night before I go to bed I'll do a little reading, every other night. I don't like to blast through my books, but instead savor the beauty of the writing, and consume the literature nice and slow.

    Bump.

    I'm very surprised to find out that no one else here reads...lol.

    Reading is fun, and hey, I'd forgive even those that do audio books (I prefer to actually read the text, I would read actual books, but with a kindle you can easily take your books places with you - just pop it in your pocket, and it carries thousands of books).

    I used to read a lot but over the last few years have fallen into the habit of watching videos on Youtube last thing at night - that or listening to podcasts or debates/interviews. Haven't bought an actual book in a long time. Last thing I read was Tombland by C. J. Sansom which was a digital download that I read on my phone.

    I have read all the Shardlake books by Sansom. I've always been interested in dramas set in the middle ages in film and literature. I liked The Name of the Rose movie with Sean Connery. I was also a big fan of the Cadfael series. Shardlake is a Searjant (basically a lawyer / investigator) living in Tudor era London.

    Umberto Eco - The Island of the Day Before

    I'm only starting. I loved his Name of the Rose, Baudolino and The Prague Cemetary. Foucault's Pendulum, on the other hand, I couldn't bring myself to finish, on two attempts.
