It’s winter time, so I’m looking for a bunch of fun books to read. I just ordered two books by John Scalzi (Fuzzy Nation and The God Engines), Two books by Tracy Yuan because I’m training to Pro Girl (Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl and Diary of a Married Call Girl), plus Zero Day: A Novel by Mark Russinovich. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
I’ve gotten some great suggestions for good books to read in previous years. Here’s how I expressed my winter time reading preferences early on:
Okay, I’m looking for fun, light reading for my vacation. I don’t want search stuff, I don’t want heavy reading, I don’t want geopolitics or history.
Things like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Or Terry Pratchett. Or early William Gibson. Cheesy cyberpunk if they don’t get the computer stuff too wrong. Neil Gaiman. Transmetropolitan.
Based on that, what books would you recommend for fun summer reading?
