Currently I'm reading The Eragon series written by Christopher Paolini.

Nice fantasy book about heroes and dragons.

I'm a succer for books where the underdog wins.

Well I hope he will busy on second book.

What are you reading atm?

I'm allways on the lookout for new books and writers so tips are very welcome.

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,

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).

Finding Moonshine: A Mathematician's Journey Through Symmetry

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.

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.

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

      Hi, that funny. I was actually looking at Tampa/Sarasota as well. I've lived there before and loved it. My Dr is also based out of Sarasota so that would be nice. I use to frequent a club called the castle a lot the first time I started to transition. I think the costs of Florida are pretty much safe but the inner parts are very very intolerant. I don't make a very good country girl at all. I don't hunt, fish go mudding or anything like that. I hate sports ball games. Whats scary is im caring less and less about what people think. Im not sure why but I it doesn't really bother me if people know I'm  trans. A couple girls have guessed it and are cool with it and hang out. They ask moisturizer advice and hair growing advice. The guys though, thats another story. None of them hang anymore and I don't care but I'm so scared of ending up in a sugar cane field dead. Im saving as much as possible, which is hard while transitioning without insurance, to relocate as quickly as possible. I go to Lauderdale a lot, walk around downtown taking pictures and whatever else and nobody notices me. No wispers or weird looks. I love it. Thank you for the compliment btw. Im actually starting like the person looking at me from the mirror. I'm starting to feel like me.   Ashlee

      Hi, I was planning on waiting a lot longer than a few months for sure. I go In to see my dr and get blood work for  my 3 month checkup in about about 2 weeks. I'm hoping all goes well with that and I will figure it out from there I suppose. I guess everyones timeline is so much different. Definitely can't go by someone else's experiences. Don't be surprised if things start going fast for you. Im 45 and holy smokes, the changes are just crazy. My emotions are way way different, my boobs hurt so bad, my skinny jeans aren't so skinny in the butt area anymore but still lost weight, skin is so soft and man muscle is melting away. Things are heavier too me. These are all things coming up for you, and its awesome! Sounds like im complaining but no. Its so great. I wouldn't trade what going on with my mind and body for anything. Just keep on keeping on I suppose   Ashlee

      So, I'm one of the weird guys who actually reads the hate-filled comments, and doesn't take it too personally.  I actually enjoy debating.  I don't call them names.  I like being calm, and not taking their bait meant to upset me.   Anyone else that way?

      Thank you. I'm really just venting. The day I joined the forum, I bought groceries. Walking out of the store I passed a woman who called me a "lez". Normally it wouldn't have bothered me, but my time here in Texas has been so miserable it was almost literally adding insult to injury. I have no hope of ever fitting in. I'm just going to try to focus my energy into what it means to be my true authentic self. If people accept me, fine. If not, fine. I have cats, my photography, and a love of books to keep me company. Contributing to this forum will prevent me from becoming a total and complete troglodyte.   Hugs back atcha   Thank you so much for the encouragement. I needed to hear something positive.  There's a quote that comes to mind: "To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." -e.e. cummings   Nice to meet you as well.

      Kymmie this is good news.  I am so happy for you.  It is interesting that those closest to us know us very well.   My wife had offered to let me have her "girls" also but I told her it doesn't work that way.  I grew my own too.    BIG Hugs!!! Jani

      Hi Ashlee.  You might look into the Tampa area as I know there is an active TG community and the area is fairly tolerant.     You look great for having just started!   Please be safe.   Jani

      You have an interesting mix of music genres there!   Your insurance plan may have a search tool you can use to find the right person.  Also we have a Resources page that may be helpful.  Also try https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists   All my best, Jani

      Hi Larry.  I don't know if you are seeing a therapist but they may have an idea of where you could locate the additional support you need.  You also might try here  https://www.tgrcnm.org  or  http://www.lascrucestrans.org   You don't say why the in-person support groups didn't click with you but I will offer that you should try again.  People come and go and the groups do evolve.  Don't despair, you'll find what you need.     Cheers, Jani  
    • SusanMtF
      Ashlee, I'm about 6 weeks behind you on HRT but I ask myself questions regarding my timeline periodically.  I'm much older so I doubt I'll have as much change as you have experienced.  As some have mentioned to me, the changes sometimes dictate the speed of one's transition and their "coming out" timeline.  I was really hoping I wouldn't have to make any big decisions til 2019 as to coming out to family.  I'm not sure if that'll be possible or not..if things start to change as rapidly as they did in your case.  I'm sort of playing it by ear but right now only my wife knows anything at this point.  I hope I have a little more time before I'm forced to share with my family and friends..but who knows?   SusanMtF
    • SusanMtF
      I am so happy to hear about this.  I applaud your courage & willpower and wish you the very best.  I bet you'll feel wonderful after the initial shock calms down a bit. Communication is a main key to most if not all good relationships.   Im very happy for you! SusanMtF

      I will never vote democrat!!!!!!! I don't like their policies!!!! But I don't vote either. never have and never will!!!! If i were to. I would be an independent. I am not really a fan of trump but i do like some of his policy when i relates to the budget and military and immigration. Sorry but This is how i feel. And i don't think impeachment is in the cards. You can't impeach a president if he has done nothing wrong. Again, I am NOT a trump fan!!!
