Mason & Dixon I gave up on because Mechanically I just Couldn’t Deal WIth the Capitalization and it Doesn’t Matter to me how Good the Rest of the Book was.


#924

Mason & Dixon is the only Pynchon I’ve finished! Well, except for Crying of Lot 49, but that’s not an impressive accomplishment. It’s quite short!


#925

Only book of his that I couldn’t finish. But I intend to try again. Eventually.


#926

+1, me too. Someday.


#927

Witchmark (only until the 15th):

Amazon has Tim Zahn’s Quadrail series for $1.99. Any recommendations?


#929

I haven’t read the full series but I did read Night Train to Rigel. I liked it. It’s a murder mystery spy thing, kind of like Murder on the Orient Express… IN SPACE! Definitely worth the $2 price tag, IMHO.


#930

If you’re interested in starting a new fantasy series, you might want to check out The Black Prism by Brent Weeks. I liked it quite a bit. Interesting setting and magic system. On the plus side the final book in the 5 book series just recently came out so the series is complete.


#931

Wait what? I’m seeing it come out in august 2019 and that’s on amazon.co.uk
Despite numerous searches on amazon I can only find it in german, can you link me?


#932

If you want the Classics for $0.50:


#933

Wow. Bought.


#934

I tried, but couldn’t find a list of stories included in that publication. I must be overlooking something obvious.


#935

Me neither, but was willing to risk the fifty cents.


#936

Heh. Let me know if there’s any standouts.


#937

I’m waiting for the download now, will report back.


#938

It’s a solid survey of literature at the time.

“I pahked the cah at Hahvahd Yahd.”

— Actual sentence spoken to me last time I was in Boston


#940

Dang. Trigger pulled.


#941

Nice. Re-reading classics I read as a kid has a certain appeal to it. Would I appreciate David Copperfield more now?

I like that Aesop’s fables are in there. I’d love to read those to my son.

My only hesitation is just the logistical sorting required of suddenly having such a huge library of stuff.


#942

Believe it’s literally a single 40,000 page book with each chapter being an actual book/story. So it wouldn’t really affect how you sort your Kindle library.
