I've started to read Andrew Dix's "Beginning Film Studies." So far it's been really enlightening for someone who hasn't really dove into the realm of film studies before. I'm trying to increase my knowledge in film critique, so I envision this book being a big help.

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. After Black Sails ended I wanted to read the original as it's one of those classics that I know about but I don't ever remember reading or watching. Despite some old english words and phrases, it's still an engaging book.

Underground Airlines by Ben H Winters

What if the Civil War never happened? This book takes place in modern-day America, with smartphones and fast food and all that. The largest difference is that War was averted by Congressional compromise. So Slavery is legal in only four states, called The Hard Four. There are all sorts of petitions and movements to stop using slave labor, and to stop buying from companies that use slave labor. But there are just as many justifications for why slaves are needed as well. This novel follows a black bounty hunter as he seeks a runaway slave as his target.

I'm only like 50 pages in so far, but I'm loving the juxtaposition of today's culture and how we congratulate ourselves in the real world for being so progressive, and yet are only scratching the surface as far as real equality goes.

Just finished Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer. mysterious and weirdly fucked up sci-fi at it's best. Can't wait to read the other 2 installments in the trilogy.

Currently reading Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progressivism by Mark Levin. It's definitely heavy reading that requires focus while reading but it has proven to be interesting so far. Levin cites a bunch of philosophers, politicians, and other thinkers. It's good stuff.

Seeing the Ready Player One trailer got me keen to read the book for a second time.

It's been a good few years since I had read it, so hopefully enough time has past so I enjoy it 'fresh', despite knowing certain key plot points.

Already can feel the 'just one more page vibe' that got me the first time around.

I think it makes me sad at the packing of Armada. Let's hope that Ernie get's to rectify this in whatever happens to be his third novel.

Just finished reading (well, listening) to Will save the galaxy for food, which is Yahtzee's book (guy from No Punctuation).

I decided to listen to it since I like his voice and thought it would a nice time to spend some time at work. The book was ok, I enjoyed myself. It's not going into the halls of great literature but sometimes it doesn't need to be that good.

I still can't relate to liking RP1! I tried, I really did.

Ooh good call, I'll check it out. It's only a smidge £10 on Amazon, no brainer!

Have you tried Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Book Store by Robin Sloane? Another book that I couldn't put down. Similar adventure piece to RPO, but none of the reference heavy stuff and the characters are very likeable.

Thanks for the recommendation :). I'll check the audiobook out, to see if it's well narrated.
