I've been reading a lot more over the last few months than in recent years. Started off just re-reading stuff I've ready before and know I like. I find books to be such a time commitment that I'm often scared of trying new ones because I don't want to hate it and regret it. Re-read all of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books, the 4th and 5th ASOIAF books, Lamb, and World War Z.
Just ventured out and bought a couple new books with some saved up Amazon credits, though. I order stuff from Amazon all the time, and you get a $1 credit if you're a prime subscriber but choose the 'no-rush' shipping option.
The Martian and Ready Player One are the two I just bought. I'm about 1/4 of the way through The Martian and I'm loving it. Excited that some others on here really enjoyed Ready Player One, I took a gamble on that one, and will read it next. The synopsis sounds a lot like Snow Crash which I've read but struggled to get through. But someone with similar tastes to mine told me I'd enjoy it, so gonna give it a shot.
