I'm reading Lakebridge Spring by Natasha Troop,

I've had a good laugh so far with it and about half through it, it gets dark however, really warped. It is very interesting reading this book after she (author) posted so much here as a moderator at Laura's. I find her writing very interesting, and part of her life was written about here, that gives a unique background into this story.

Hearts in Atlantis - Steven King.

Im not a Steven King fan as generally I find his books over drawn out but I loved the movie, which of course is influencing how I see the book.

Finding Moonshine: A Mathematician's Journey Through Symmetry

by Marcus Du Sautoy

I'm guessing I'll be the only person to enjoy reading Maths here :P

Still, it's not particularly heavy, and if you're interested in finding out why Maths is fun, a good book to read.

Christopher Paolini's second, third and fourth books in the Inheritance cycle are already out.

Hugs,

Holly

Nothing currently, much to my horror. If I had them though, I'd either be reading books 2 and 3 of the Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman, or books 2 and 3 of the Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix. I've read the first book in both Trilogies repeatedly, but I've never managed to find the rest of them without ordering online, and shipping costs for books are ridiculous :angry:

Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series was rather excellent in my opinion. I recently read the first three books in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series and it was fairly funny in a nerdy way. Some other books I would recommend:

(pardon me if I get titles or authors wrong, I rarely remember either)

House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer (I think that is the correct title and author, it has been years since I've read it)

Supernaturalist, Wishlist, Artemis Fowl series, and several others by Eoin Colfer

Incarceron

The Belgariad series (It has been some years since I last read these)

I have quite a few other ideas, if you are into fiction/fantasy, but these are the handful that I remember at the moment (I have read well over a thousand novels and I rarely remember the names or titles of them).

Not at all, I would suggest reading the Prime Obsession by Derbyshire which gives an excellent read into the Riemann Hypothesis (it requires some mathematical knowledge, but only a highschool education would be needed to understand it and get a solid grasp of the topic). I personally have a bit of an obsession with math as well :3 If you ever wanna talk about that stuff, feel free to PM me. I don't know too much, but I enjoy learning new things! I also like to share my math quite a bit, but I save that for other places like Facebook and other forums.

Read Wheel of Time with the exception of the last book, which unless I'm mistaken isn't out yet. I've read both the Belgariad and the Mallorean by David Eddings (read one of the sapphire rose sets too, but I rarely admit that, they were horrible).

If you liked those, you should definitely read Steven Erikson's "Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen" series. It's a bit more grown up than the others mentioned, but it's by far the best fantasy series I've ever read, bar none.

Funny you should ask! :D

While I was taking some time to myself after very busy days here with company, etc., I'd decided to read a book.

I had chosen Kay Henderson's Being Kay/A Transgender Journey. This is an ebook.

I had noticed Kay's book mentioned in the signature line of her posts as a member here. Her posts here are always so very articulate, I'd thought I'd find her book interesting! I was right! It's a great read! :D

I do some educational work and some advocacy work, intermittently. I am going to add Kay's book to my list of suggested reading for persons wanting information on Gender Dysphoria and/or anything Transgender. Kay's writing flows so well! I'd quickly found myself feeling her feelings, living her experiences, and better understanding her personal journey.

Nice job, Kay! Thanks again for sharing your own story so candidly! :D

With Love to ALL,

Brad

After a bit of a chill in the air this morning, minus 30 degrees Celcius ( about minus 22 Fahrenheit) and finished thawing the water pipes.

I decided to take up some lite reading.

The Gulag Archipelago by the late Alexsandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn.

Huggs,

Joann

I just finished reading the fourth installment in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. This one is entitled "A Feast for Crows."

I have to agree with most of the reviewers who said it was more boring than the first three, and several of the main characters, including the dwarf Tyrion Lannister were missing. That was because of a deliberate decision Martin made to divide the story into two separate books.

Still, it was entertaining and kept me going, and the twists at the end (Martin is great for that) were very satisfying and will serve to keep me hungering for the next book. Good stuff, and now the third book will be on T.V. very soon.

I am reading When all Hell Breaks Loose by Cody Lundin.

It's " Stuff you need to survive when disaster strikes." One of the better " prepper" books I have read.

Cool, I'll have to read it at some point, thanks! o.o

Be prepared, it's a 10 book series, and most of them are over 1000 pages. Definitely worth it though. The last book just came out early last year I think, and I've been following the series for almost 10 years. I was always rabid for the next book to be released ^_^ I've read the set a few times.

I actually got started on it by mistake. I bought the second book believing it to be a stand-alone book, I wasn't interested in getting involved with a series at that time. I had gotten a book-store gift card for Christmas, and I just wanted to use it up, so I grabbed that because the cover stood out on the shelf, and I never bothered to look inside to see if it was part of a series. I never even read it for more than a year after buying it, but when I finally did, I was absolutely blown away, and started buying up the rest of the set as I was able.

Gender outlaws - The next generation by Kate Bornstein and S. Bear Bergman.

I really got a laugh out of some of this, funny as all get out, side spliting at times, it's like put the book down and wipe your eyes, you've been laughing so hard.

But really the authors touch on many subjects that we face in daily life, practical in many ways.

Just finished Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella and started with A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison.

I find both of the writers very easy to get into the story.

I hate books people tell me are great but you have to work at the first quarter or something. Uh no I don't. I'mlazythankyouverymuch.

Currently I'm reading Mike's book. And greatly enjoying it as well. It's well written and one of those books you just slip into and enjoy.

Thanks Bulldog for telling us about it.

But I totally forgot to mention the title of the book which I am enjoying so much-The Horse Chronicles.

It's on Amazon and super reasonable too.

And Mike didn't even offer me cookies to endorse it. I genuinely like the book

:)

      @VidanjaliWhen it comes to employment, follow your inner guidance. You know when it is is time to move on and it can be such a rewarding time when choose to move on.   I would get some legal advice about your grievances and how to document them. The HR department is there to protect the organization more so than the employee. A sympathetic HR employee may support you but HR is NOT your advocate. Whether you intend it or not, leaving an organization may burn bridges. That is part of life. You have succeeded in your employment because of your efforts and what you bring much more so than anything the employer provides. When it comes to jobs, the only thing I regret was not leaving as soon as I knew it was time.
    • Hannah Renee
      @VidanjaliI'm not certain what changed from what I was originally told. My new employer is contracted to providing security services for a wide range of companies. My first few days last week were with the HR manager at the local branch office. She originally said she wasn't sure if I could have Hannah on my badge. She subsequently informed me that I could. When I got my ID photo taken yesterday on site, I was told I had to wait until legal name change. I don't know if it's an internal company about face, a policy of the host company, or what. I am going to try to find out what.
    • Davie
      Way to go, @Vidanjali. I support your choice. When I quit my last full-time job long ago, it was very scary. But looking back, it was the best thing I ever did. I stood up for myself and left what people said was a secure job. It also was toxic and abusive (not for your reasons) and it took the right few friends to support my change and to work towards a creative direction for my life. I know you're a fine writer and we have a lot of support here on TgP. Good luck. Believe in yourself. God's speed. —  Davie

      Ooh, I love this one, too!     Thanks for saying so! And for the advice!

      Coming out is a cathartic experience. For me, it really reduced a lot of built-up stress and worry. May you find clarity in expressing all the things you wish to say. This is an important milestone, but it's also a point that you are soon past, and then other important things will be there for the two of you to work on, hopefully together.   As @Susan R mentioned, may you have a distraction-free evening to begin this new chapter in your lives.   Hugs and reassurance,   Astrid

      Luck sweetie! May he be understanding and happy to come on this journey with you, no matter where it may lead.   Hugs!

      Update to everyone:    I'll be coming out to my husband once he gets home from work. I cant hide from him anymore, i feel too guilty. I've had the worst anxiety I've ever felt today. I keep crying and shaking and it just feels awful. I've never felt more afraid in my life. Wish me luck.

      It is sad to hear of  Alan Price's death. His death made me think about one of my best friends from college who has also passed. She was a huge fan of Yes and Rick Wakeman. I'm listening to a few song with my happiest memories, I miss her.        
    • Mx.Drago
      I don't feel like I'm watching, more getting carried away by the tide that is life. Wish I could enjoy it more. Sadly there was never a guarantee things would work out nicely.

      Can you do some sort of harm reduction if you bind for years , the reason am I asking i am unsure if i can have Surgery due to the fact ill not  get approved for it?
    • Kelly2509
      @WillbeAlice that's great news!  Glad it has been going well!  Sounds like they did a good job of helping you come up with a plan of attack as well and that's nice to hear!  Kudos!   I've been back to the office a few times and generally everyone has been fine over the last month.  Some people have a hard time remembering my correct name (which is now legal BTW) and once in a while I'll get misgendered but they have been honest mistakes so I haven't pushed back too hard.  There are still the couple people who seem to really avoid me now, but honestly that's OK.

      Thanks to Jeanette West's Electrolysis Report.  I just started reading through it and I'm learning a lot.  Almost even feeling a lot.  The mind is a terrible thing : )

      Hi Everyone, I apologize if I'm repeating a topic.  I will work my way through the topic posts.  But I was wondering if anyone has advice on Pre op electrolysis for vaginoplasty?  Pain management ?  Would it be less painful after an orchiectomy ?  How many sessions did it take ?  I heard about numbing cream.  And it could take a year to be ready for surgery ?  Thank you, Vini

      Lots of good music ideas, girls!  I may be repeating myself, but classic rock was my escape in my previous life form, so its hard to listen to without bad memories.  Then I heard that Diane Keeton doesn't listen to much music either because of the memories.  But some how, I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys grabbed me today, then the Theme from Out of Africa, Go figure. Thanks, Vini
