Dunno if this is against the rules, sorry quetz or whoever if it is, but I just decided to check this place out after mainly staying on the drug boards. seems great, I see a lot of books I love being talked about, but this board is so slow now that it seems like it'd be hard to have any decent discussion going. Any other forums (preferably chan style but I'm open for anything) you guys know of that are any good?

-Goodreads: runs the gambit from basic bitch to pretentious pedant, but there can be some good discussion to be found as it tends to attract an older audience. Keeping track of what books you read by logging them and easily finding recommendations are bonuses
-circlejerk: Focus on the subcirclejerks; they vary in quality but are numerous enough so that you will likely find a niche to fit in and contribute to. Avoid all the default subs (shit)
-Twitter: pretty terrible and I don't recommend it, but the possibility of interacting with authors whose books you've read is cool, and occasionally you'll find good threads of discussion
-/lit/: Not even memeing, you can find some genuine and excellent discussion on here if you sift through the sea of trash and pretension. Excellent recs to be had as well (see their Wikia charts)

What are you guys reading right now?

Brandon Sanderson just released the third and final book of his Reckoners trilogy, and it was fantastic. Where are all the Sanderson fans in here? It was this board that told me to read his shit, and now that I do, nobody ever will talk about them with me lol

Now starting Altered Carbon. Netflix is making a show based on it, and I like reading books that have adaptions impending so I can compare them later.

About halfway through Feersum Endjinn, my first time reading his non-Culture SF. Really digging it despite the somewhat aggravating phonetic chapters. It could definitely be set in the same universe as The Culture; it seems like he explored a lot of ideas here that would enter The Culture later.

I recently bought a book of translations of Old English poetry and am enjoying it a lot. I used to read a lot of REH as a kid (Conan, kull, Solomon) and a lot of the poetry in this collection reminds me of the heroic adventure type poetry that REH wrote.

Do you guys know of any recommendations for other poetry along these lines? Narrative poems that deal with battles, traveling, exotic lands, etc. I'm mostly familiar with the epics like Homer, Gilgamesh, Beowulf, Theogony, etc but I'm looking for poems that are more in the shorter formats.

Here's one OP: Winter Rose

"The rains began.
Hard, constant, they battered the fields, turned the roads to mud, crushed the gold leaves into the ground and turned them black. In the wood, the sodden trees and brambles bowed beneath the torrents. Leaves fell, clung limply to vines and wildflowers, slowly buried them beneath their sodden weight. Work in the fields, on Lynn Hall, stopped, though I heard him hammering inside, the time or two I ventured into the wood. I went to the well once: the rain-kissed water gave me nothing, not even my reflection. Another time, near evening, when the rains had grown gentle, drops flecking the air like tiny fireflies, I went to gather the last of the crab apples for Beda. So i told myself: I had to pass the ruined hall to reach the tree. Smoke came out of a chimney, smelling sweetly of birch and maple. Crispin had brought him a wagonload of seasoned wood. I did not see him.

Most of the time, I stayed in the house, sewing beside Laurel, or watching the rain. I had frightened myself in the wood: I did not know, anymore, what was true. If I had invented a world that none of us lived in, then the true world was Laurel's, predictable, dependable, with no secrets and no stray midnight gold that turned to leaf by morning. Corbet Lynn had not walked out of light, but had ridden a horse into the village;Laurel loved Perrin as always, and I wanted them there. I made myself teas of camomile and vervain to soothe my thoughts, and watched Laurel move calmly through her world. She never paced, or pulled a window open to feel the rain, the wind; she never moved without grace or purpose. She never went barefoot.

So I wore shoes and braided my hair, and made lace for her wedding dress, as if I sewed time and promises into each airy loop and every inch of it bound Laurel more securely..."

Anyone have any good suggestions for other books/series? Also general star wars literature and legends v. canon discussion.

I remember having a blast with Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina and Tales of the Bounty Hunters back in the day; they're anthologies so the short stories vary a bit in tone/style but overall I found them fun and a quick read.

Have also heard great things about the Thrawn trilogy--as everyone ITT has already remarked upon--some of the Republic Commando books, and the Corellian Trilogy. Honestly I'd just go to your local bookstore and flip through the various offerings to see what piques your interest, but keep these options in mind.

Anyone have some good book suggestions that cover the structure/form of different kinds of poetry, something I desperately need a refresher in. And just recommendations on some poetry collections in general that would be worth reading. Thanks guys.

"Poetry Handbook" by Lennard is an extraordinary overview of the more technical aspects of the craft of poetry (metre, form, layout, punctuation lineation rhyme, diction, syntax etc). It can be a bit dry but its worth working through. The author recommends working through a chapter a month and I would agree with this. Using it in conjunction with the 5th edition of the norton anthology of poetry is a good idea (the 6th edition is out now, so second-hand prices of the 5th edition are low).

On a more accessible level, I really love "poetry in the making" by ted hughes. He wrote it to inspire highschool age kids to read and write poetry, but don't let that put you off. Its awesome.

I'm looking for stuff on modern interpretations of religions and how they intermingle and carry over into each other. How mythology morphs in such cases as pagan Saturnalia translating over to Christmas. Maybe even breaking stuff like investigative religious journalism. I've always been interested in the subject but have done no reading on it. Specifically interested in Christianity but anything interesting on any religion in any time period is cool.

There's this author called E.R. Dodds. He specialized on greek cultural history. He doesn't talk much about our present time, but he has this amazing book called "Greeks and the irrational" about the pagan, magic, mystic roots of greek culture. It quotes really obscure sources and gives a pretty good explanation of some greek cultural and psychological phenomenon. It's pretty well reviewed in the academic community. He also wrote a book on the socio-psychological consequences of the advent of early christianism in pagan cultures, it's called "Pagan and christian in the age of anxiety". I think it's a pretty good place if you want to go beyond scientific divulgation, but still want something sort of general and literary, and not some uninteligible academic mash up of ancient and modern languages intertwined from a thousand different sources.

Karen Armstrong has written several fantastic books that may be of interest. She writes in a fairly concise and engaging manner without being overly academic.
"The Great Transformation" might be what you're looking for as she discusses the development of judasim, Buddhism, Confucianism and the greek philosophers in the axial age. So, for example, she writes about how the aryan religious/cultural practises developed into vedic culture, proto hindu culture and then Buddhism. She discusses the development of judasim and the old testement from the void left by the disintegration of the egyptian empire and the influence of Canaanite/Phoenician cults on the early Israelites and, thus, the abrahamic faiths in general.
Its goodstuff.
In "the history of god" she concentrates on judasim, christianity and islam and is a little less accessible.
