    I've finally finished reading Ready Player One by Ernst Cline. It was lots of fun! Although I didn't know most of the 80s references included in the book, it made me want to get to know that era a bit better and I remembered for the first time in a while that my first ever outing to the cinema was for a Godzilla movie. It made me feel rather cool. Parts of the book had me laughing out loud because of something that the characters have said or because of the twists and turns in the plot. A very exciting read!

    Next on my to read list is The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. Another book that I started and was just getting into before things got in the way and I stopped. I'd like to start reading it again!

      @artfellow ready player one has been on my reading list for far too long and seems like it'd be fun summer read. I think I'll have to go pick it up. Thanks for the reminder!

      God luck with the name of the roast - it's a long one!

        Hey @aenea, I highly recommend it. I just read on your profile that you're a fan of Kurt Vonnegut and although I've never read any books by him, I think you'll enjoy the Vonnegut reference in the book πŸ˜‰ Have you read The Name of the Rose?

          @artfellow yes but it was some time ago. Eco can be challenging, but the stories he tells are invariably rewarding. Vonnegut is like fluff in comparison, but also very enjoyable. highly recommend him if you have the chance. maybe start with cat's cradle.
