King of /sffg/.Simple as.
>>19886009 #>I didn't even really mind her since sheWhy even have this mindet?Why should there be a character (only to represent vagina in the novel) that makes you automatically submit and comply with thought police and purposely 'not mind' her, becauseminding her would immediately have you labeled as misogynist, bigot and female oppresor and sent to jail

Why Sanderson loves diversity so much?
>>19886245Cope, cuck. Keep crying like the little bitch you are.
>>19886282Aren't Mormons racist?
>>19886311Not if they want to be published authors in 2022.
Sanderson's attempts at writing LGBT characters are quite honestly insulting.
>>19886321LGBT characters are insulting, same goes for female characters
>>19886321We should burn down his mansion for not making Jasnah lesbian
>>19886321After reading that post he made over a decade ago about why gays are bad I became convinced modern Sanderson only includes that shit to appeal to hollywood since he really really really really wants his crap to be adapted, and doesn't actually care about proper LGBT representation.
>>19886333I don't care, they are all shit characters. Male and Female alike.
>>19886340No shit, Sherlock . Sando is a shit writer and a great business man, period. It's just cape shit, but written down.
>>19886340Any Sanderson series should be adapted like Arcane, any attempt of making them live action will turn bad, especially by how expensive they must be to make
>>19886311No, they just don't like non-whites.
>>19886370I agree, it's aimed for teenagers anyway.
“Whenever we walked up the stairs with a young woman, I made sure to walk behind her so Isaac wouldn’t grab her tush,” the writer Harlan Ellison is quoted as saying in Nat Segaloff’s biography A Lit Fuse (2017). “He didn’t mean anything by it—times were different—but that was Isaac.”
>>19886383Harlan Ellison was a fag. Is he talking about Asimov here? Asimov was a fag too.
>>19886391Asimov casually grabbed women by their breasts in public
>>19886396He got away with it toohttps://www.publicbooks.org/asimovs-empire-asimovs-wall/
>>19886415>a jew gets away with itGee, imagine my shock.
>>19886370I can't find the quote but I'm sure I've read that he's said he thinks animation is for kids and only wants live action for his stuff.
>>19886427Yeah Mistborn would make a great anime or video game but he's like "b-but I want it to be a heckin kino hollywood hesiterino"
is this one in the mega folder in the OP?
>>19886427And what does he thinks his stuff is? Of all the fantasy authors he is probably one of the most infantile because his characters act like snowflakes who are chaotic good at worst
>>19886538Why would it be? Most of those are shit.
>>19886583why wouldn't it be, this is in it
Hey MaxiTranny, you pay a woman for a cunt timestamp yet?
Bakker came out of the closet while I was fucking his wife, he decided cucking wasn't enough for him and he offered to suck my dick instead.
>>19886588damn liara lookin fine
>>19886595>He still hasn't figured it out.
>>19886605No one cares, retard. Fuck off.
>>19886216How many large-scale battles are there in the Black Company series? If it’s just killing bandits and taking quests for villagers like Mount & Blade then I’ll look elsewhere
>>19886595Oh no no no no
>>19886619>noone cares>but I care enough to take the obvious baitAnd you call me a retard!
>>19886612>dumb faggot still cant figure out how to prove shit>>19886634Aww did the tranny janny get upset?Maxitranny still aint proved shit.
MODSthe americans are raiding us again
>>19886666Aww widdle baby needs troon daddy to solve all his problems?What a faggot little bitch.
>>19886666Does a single day go by in your life that you aren’t thinking about Americans? We don’t think about you at all
>>19886665>He still doesn't get it.Some jokes write themselves.
>>19886628Fuck off loser, only Chad Bakker books are discussed here
Schizos, take your meds. This general is only bearable when you're stable. Right now it's close to its all-time low.
so the next cradle book is called the end. He should have milked that series for another 8 books. I've never read any other books in that genre but since most are written by non americans I imagine none are as good
>>19886756Huh? I'm 90% sure the next book is called Dreadgod(s) and there's going to be one final book after it.
>>19886718What was the all time low?
>>19886769When the general was split because of the weebnovel schizo.
>>19886883God forbid people discuss novels in this general.
Maxitranny janny can lick my balls
Maxitranny the janny is a powerless bitchmight as well prune the thread because you're going to spend your night deleting posts.
Is it just me or did George RR Martin kind of exaggerate the brutality of history at least European history?Like babies being brutally murdered, women always being raped before their death, etc it just doesn't sound right to me
>>19886911yeah, he based it off of east asian history
Maxitranny janny can go sit on a rusty pipe.Got a problem? Fix the fucking general, shitslime
Maxitranny better get in here and pick my shit up off the board.
Maxitranny you're dropping the ballOh wait, you cut those off
>>19886913Yeah that would make senseLike ottomans killing all their brothers and chinese emperors murdering the families of nobles they don't like
>>19886928I made it up by the way in case you're serious
>>19886931Well he had to get the brutality from somewhere unless he's just a sick man who's projecting the violence into european historySo maybe he was reading about asian history and just thought it would make sense in a european world
are the bakkerspammers banned yet?
What's taking you so long? gotta dilate little bitch?Maxitranny flushing out the axewound.
>>19886911You must be really naïve.
>>19886954No I'm notShow me the historical evidence
>>19886947No the Maxipads the tranny janny just doubled down on removing only the other shitposts.SO BURN THE THREAD
>>19886955Have you read the history of the crusades?
Hey Maxi you dicklicking waste of breath, what the fucks your problem? Crying because you saw a mirror?Why is this shit still all over the thread?
>>19886538Choice of Magic and Library of Mount Char is NOT gamelit/isekai.
>>19886960Not in any particular detailThe only example I could think about is the sack of Constantinople by the crusaders, otherwise it's just European brutality against Muslims and vice versa which is not relevant to the story of ASOIAF
>>19886911>>19886928>>19886937War of the Five Kings is based on the War of the Roses, you daft cunt. Fuck off and learn history before espousing bullshit /pol/ history.
>>19886947The false flaggers? Clearly not.
>>19886756Cradle is 12 or 14 books, I forget the exact amount, and even Cradle isn't that good. It plateaus early on.
>>19886976?I know it's based on the war of the roses anon, that's like the most basic fact about ASOIAF
>>19886972>Library at Mount CharI've only read this one, but I'm starting to question the legitimacy of that list.
>>19886976His complaint was about GRRM. Go message GRRM about your /pol/ bogeyman, newfag.
>>19886975If you still haven’t realised what human beings are capable of, I don’t know what to tell you.
>>19886992I know what human beings are capable of, I'm asking whether the violence and brutality we see in ASOIAF is based on the violence and brutality we see in western europe
>>19886985I believe that particular anon views gamelit/isekai as any dimension/world-hopping at all whatsoever, which, like many opinions held by /sffg/ shitposters, is unfathomably bizarre.
>>19887002>I'm asking whether the violence and brutality we see in ASOIAF is based on the violence and brutality we see in western europeit's based on the war of the roses , idiot. What do you think?
>>19886979>>19886981>>19886985>>19886988>>19886989>>19886992You empty headed retards think this thread is for talking about books? Get a fucking grip, this is for discussion of homosex and transexuals.GTFO of this thread with your shit.
>>19887002Yes, they most definitely are. But I don’t understand what you mean by “European”. It’s the same virtually everywhere.
>>19887003>>19887005>>19887007Which one of you bitches pussed out on the timestamp? Come on tranny, fucking cough up the goods or rope yourself!
>>19886718>>19886769I'm sorry, do we have a problem? I specifically wasn't going to participate in this thread as I had recently put out a statement on the discord but have literally no desire to justify myself to people who pretend to know me or the specificity of my lived experiences.Please, you go meet your ideal thread, "challenge" them as much as your gratitude and appreciation for your experience allows, and then read whiny nonsense from random people on the internet that dox and call you by name about how I didn't do enough to make /sffg/ the fucking gentle coddling experience you wanted it to be (an unrealistic expectation from an eccentric collective or anons, if I ever imagined one).And I'm not just picking on you but, as I ask my children, do you want my negative attention or my positive attention.And for posterity my statement on Discord in answer to the question:>On unofficial word, we've plotted more crap posting (which he very much likes as to do) than any actual conversation... I don't know, five to sevenish false flag plot lines and blaming it in American-posting (around the time of 10am NYT time). Whether or not anyone is interested in actually reading seems to be a completely different story.Grow up and smell the Meat, friend, we're living Crash Space right now - I for one am optimistic about the capacity of my fellow humans, especially Bakker readers, but some of you hold a weird ass fucking grudge for those who have knelt before Golgotterath.Just sayin'.
Someone answer my question please >>19886628
>>19887013>still doesn’t get itLike pottery.
>>19887015I get it, you're butthurt over getting banned for being a toxic retard. Move on, or better yet, take your meds. You're an incredibly disruptive fucking cancer in this general.
>>19887015> literally no desire to justify myself to people who pretend to know me or the specificity of my lived experiences.Oh look its that bitch who calls himself madnessWhat the fuck is this reddit tier faggot doing here of all places? Don't you know posting on 4chan makes you a terrorist incel and the reddit mods will cancel you for that?What a fucking joke this dicklicking cockstain is.>literally no desirethen what are you doing here you gigantic whining bitch?! If you didn't care why did you show up here to say so? Because you care, little bitch.
>>19887023Please do not encourage its behavior.
>>19887003>I believe that particular anon views gamelit/isekai as any dimension/world-hopping at all whatsoever, which, like many opinions held by /sffg/ shitposters, is unfathomably bizarre.Because people here don't read. And the few that do read get nothing but shitposts.
>>19887023Not him, but you should lurk more.
>>19887019Please, do help me continue to fuck this thread over!
>>19886538I am reading mother of learning, 20 chapters in and it seems that in the world there are about 1000 females to one male, mc hardly ever interacts with any males, any new person mc meets is almost always a woman. I don't know is author some kind of leftshit misandrist, or some chronic coomer, or is he some retarded tranny, or if he is just incapable writing male characters that would continually participate in story and plot. Mc is mostly introverted so pretty much most dialogue is just trash woman talk, I will probably drop this very soon because it just absolutely boring and every single character and a mc is garbage.
>>19887038It's all fucked and I've become jaded from attempting to change things. Outside from hyper-autistic specific forums, where CAN you even go to get reasonable civil book discussion?
>>19887041The only dickshit who needs to lurk is the bakker faggot.
>>19887042Not my problem, sweetie.
>>19887016Nobody is going to answer your question because all we do here is false flag and shitpost, either get used to it or fuck off
>>19886628There is a fair amount but it focuses more on the actual Black Company. Black Company inspired Malazan and that's all about large-scale battles with a focus on a small group of fellas, to give you an example.
>>19887070I accept your concession.
>>19887045>where CAN you even go to get reasonable civil book discussion?General Forums. But even those can have mixed results, but overall better than /sffg/.
Where the fuck is this useless transexual janitor anyhow? you'd think if the fucked up faggot cared enough to remove the one post he'd be just a rushing to get in here and clean up this fucking mess.Must be trying to explain to some retarded whore what he needs her to write on the sticky note when she takes a picture of her pussy.
Why are people who got filtered by Bakker trying to destroy /sffg/?
>>19887061>There is a fair amount but it focuses more on the actual Black CompanyWhat else would a company a mercenaries be doing besides fighting battles? Unless you mean the book focuses more on the relationship between the characters within the Black Company
>>19887090Whatever you say bakkerfag. Can't have one thread go by without pushing this tired closet homosexual hack on us
>>19887106Does it trouble you?
>>19887106Thanks, you take this shift, I got some shit to do for awhile.
A fun discussion from book 3 of the quadrology I'm reading here >>19875166 >>19875198 Book 3 was primarily a naval adventure. It did have a discussion persuading the importance of combating psychological trauma, from a variety of factors. I'm on book 4 now. Fun stuff. Book 3 is fucking br00tal.
>>19886976Why is /pol/ always shoehorned into any discussion? Rent free
>>19887090They can’t cope.
are we being raided by americans again?
>>19887122Bakker reigns supreme.
I don’t have a dog in this fight (I’m the one asking about The Black Company), but you can clearly tell this guy wrote his own Wikipedia page https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._Scott_Bakker
>>19887098>Unless you mean the book focuses more on the relationship between the characters within the Black CompanyYes. It's narrated and from the view of their annalist.
>>19887129Clearly, you just wondered upon that page.
I’m the real Black company guy and I actually like Bakker. Stop being pathetic.
>>19887165I'm the fake Black Company guy and I've downloaded the ebook of The Darkness That Came Before but never read it past the first paragraph.
>>19887165Then Glen Cook is going to really let you down, there just isn't the required level of persistent homosexuality in the Black Company.
>>19887106> Whatever you say bakkerfag. Thank you for proving my point.
>>19887072Next you should accept the capsules your mom forces into your mouth.
>>19887185We know, honey. You got filtered.Many such cases.
>>19887134I see, would you recommend it for a first time fantasy reader? Up until now I’ve only read political literature and soldiers autobiographies
>>19887199Sounds like something you may enjoy. Just read the first few chapters and see if you like it.
>>19886911He didn't show it enough. Real life was much worse. Empress Irene took the eyes of her own son. In Martin's world someone as insane and evil as Cersei still loves her children.
>>19886911Child murder is 100% legal in the modern western world so I don't see how European history is considered brutal
>>19886937>le europe was kind a peaceful place and europeans totally didn't spend time killing each other when they weren't invading elsewhere
>>19887244had me excited, I thought they deleted the bakker spam
>>19887244How are they based in any way, shape, or form?
>>19887244This. We can finally discuss Bakker in peace now.
I'm looking for a nice copy of dune. All the hardcover ones is a lazy as fuck loose sheet around a nondescript book. What the fuck is this trend? See pic related
>>19887260It’s a niche market. Most people aren’t willing to pay extra for old books on their 20th editions.
>>19887254They removed one guy but clearly decided not to touch the fight with a ten foot pole.Probably can't permanently ban the participants due to power levels.
i wish i had never posted my tits here for you raving mad dogsi have converted to christianity and i reject bakker and black metal. i only read tolkien and st augustine now.
>>19886538I don't remember if I added it yet and I can't be bothered to check. If I have it'd be in the unsorted or whatever I'm currently calling it.
Faggot janny thinks he's going to ban me and it'll stick?This ends when the bakkerfaggots get tossed, not before.Silly janny.
>This. We can finally shill Bakker in peace now.
>>19887275What does this mean? I’m asking unironically.
>>19887268Yeah no shit who's going to pay 50 bucks for this lmao?
>>19887276> i wish i had never posted my tits hereSo do all who live to see such times. But that is not for (You) to decide. All you we can decide is what to do with the tits that were given to us.
>>19887285there are removed posts ITT and there are posts removal worthy that have not been
>>19887260not happeningonly girl books and woke books will have hardcover versions in the future since that's what sells
>>19887276This shit again? Why do you care? Literally no one knows who you are. There are twice as many tits as there are women in the world. Yours, however, shaped the course of /sffg/‘s history for better or worse.
>>19887309Like which ones, for example?
>>19887281You’re mentally ill. And I’m enjoying your meltdown, ngl. Still posting about Bakker, though.
>>19887281Meds. You're not wanted here, shitposting or not. You should seek help.
>>19887281Strike one of us down, and five more with spring up in his place. No man can withstand the collective might and holy madness of the Zaudunyani.
>Still shilling about Bakker, though.
I think left this general right as this new baker posting thing started. I remember the good old days of botns and throne of glass by the queen of ass sarah maas posting.
>>19887351around the time I got banned for posting sex book
>>19887341>BakkerYou have to be baiting at this point. But with the amount of false flagging that goes around here now, I can’t really tell anymore.
>>19887351Not my problem.
>Not my problem.
>>19887351ye halcyon years of 2013-2015 /sffg/
this has to be the undisputed worst general on 4chan
>>19887372nah, this general is merely infested with americansthe /pol/ ones that were started by americans are much Much worse.
>>19887372It isn’t, believe me. I’ve seen far worse on /vg/.
>>19887372unfortunately it isn’t, not by a long shot.all generals seem to become moribund eventually due to how easily they can be infiltrated, exploited and dominated by single or multiple schizo spammers. /sffg/ has been a corpse for years now.
>>19887388The schizo will be gone by the end of the week anyway, it’s cyclical. We’re just on a low point now.it’s always like this.
>>19887336>meltdownYou're not worthy of a meltdownthis half-assed low-effort shitposting is just me finding a good place to blow off some steam and drop a turd at the end of the day, it already stank of shit when I got here.Maybe the fresh disturbance of said shit will spur someone to clean it up though.
alright actual question. Looking for more cradle-like series. Basically weak dude meets some friends and gets stronger and goes on adventures and fights in tournaments etc. I dont need it to be whatever that specific genre is just the common tropes but well done. sci fi or fantasy whatever.
>>19887418No can do, it's 100% bakker homoeroticism now baby!
>>19887418cultivation booksasians got it
BTW I can identify almost every single regular poster here just by post style alone (grammar, capitalization, spacing, word choice and phrasing). None of you are really anonymous, and there are only five or six people here anyway.

so whats trendy and coming out these days?cant get any decent recomendations out there that arent shitty Tranny Hugo Bait like NK Jemmisen or whatever
>>19887504that's what's trendy these days
>>19887504Nothing is decent anymore.
Seriously janny, it doesn't end until I get what I want, which is the same thing everyone wants really: an sffg where we can discuss sffg.My shitting here does not end with a global ban 4 times and then a temporary ban as some retarded appeal to my manners or whatever.it ends, when the bakkerfaggot ry is removed.whatever value may have ever existed in discussing those works has long since been exhausted.We're all sick of it, so instead of being my little bitch for the evening, chasing my posts in a futile effort to ban me, the symptom, you can instead waste your efforts on the cause of the problem.You already know I am not the first, and that I will not be the last, there are others doing it right beside me that I can see.So why, if your efforts are ultimately to be wasted, waste them on shit leaking out of a fat faggot who has overstayed his welcome? why not instead invest those efforts in getting rid of the fat faggot fuck?
>>19886273well that book is set literally on Desert and China planet, all the white people live in a reservation, you want less diverse go for his mistborn saga or something

>>19887896They also read.
>>19887900/tg/ is probably better than /lit/ at all things /lit/ should be.

I've waited a book and a half for the big "I'm a spaceman from the futuristic past reveal." It finally happens, and our heroes friends generally accept it, move on and then scene change. What the fuck? They're not going to ask him/her what it's like being a thousand years old, or being a robot, or what kind of cool super tech he knows about, or explain the part about aliens killing the rest of humanity and that the chances of finding them are?I just want a comfy scene where Merlin just talks to his friends about what the past was like. But Weber blue balls me with glossing over it to move on to politics. ARGH.
Fuck bros, I wish I hadn't watched GOT, I finished in season 4 but I want to do a read of ASOIAF and now my mental picture will be ruined
>>1988821112 year old me says based, 35 year old me says cringe.if i recall, the first 1/3 or so seemed really fascinating --> WW1-style trench warfare, flamethrowers, major retreats/defeats of the ostensible "good" side, mystic prophet, etc.but then it falls apart with lame/unrealistic love interests, antagonists you can see plotting a mile away, and an underwhelming finale. the last 2 books of the series were semi-interesting, but it got pretty boring and felt like most of it could have been wrapped up in book 2.fine, not-so-generic YA, not really worth much once you move past that level
>>19888735better than me, I played skyrim through all of my teenage years and now every fantasy I read is inside skyrim.
I have never posted here before and I wanted to talk about Acts of Caine after finishing the series for the first timewhat a great seriescaine black knife was a little weak on its own but caine's law was a really satisfying conclusion to both the previous book and the whole series
>>19888735You do know that season one is the only one that's faithful to the books, right?
>>19888878You might have better luck discussing the book Ina forum.
>>19886911It wasn't as common for women to die in childbirth as he makes it out to be but aside from that, yeah, he's pretty accurate. Rape and war go hand in hand
idk why i read this it was kinda boring and not very good and every question and mystery set up over the course of the book just gets exposition dumped onto you on the last 3 pages.
Is anyone else excited for the move adaptation of The Door Into Summer? I just found out about it today and it looks good.
>finally finished Permutation CityOne of the only books I've read where the plot twists and "big reveals" felt like they were properly set up. Way too much media tries to surprise you with nonsense, but I never felt like Egan was just making it up for the sake of it. I'm going to buy the rest of his books, I think.
>>19887590Decent series, though Dresden is better. Fucking can’t stand the person they hired to do the audiobook though.
>>19888597even old MTG knew this
I am looking for a dark fantasy series with intense battles, pitch black lore, highly intellectual themes that dovetail into real world philosophy, poignant character psychology, and just a hint of Lovecraftian horror. Is there anything out there like this?
>>19889098You're basically describing this.
>>19889098This reads like a shitpost, but I'll say Iconoclasts by Mike Shel.
Madness' schizo spergout on leddit is truly /our/ Second Apocalypse.
>>19889122Has he stopped already? The guy enjoys rap music and cape-shit too, which explains a lot desu.
>>19889098Will you stop spamming this shit every thread.
>>19888192This looks amazing thank you
>>19887943>Judging a book by it's coverNGMI>I mean is there anything truly original that doesn’t rely on common tropes?Yes, R. Scott. Bakker.
NGL, this thread is fucking amazing when the Americans are asleep.
>>19889183The thread is shit.
>>19889186Pretty sure he’s being sarcastic. Thread is shit and still is shit.
>>19887943>anything truly original that doesn’t rely on common tropesThe Gormenghast Trilogy
>>19889226How so? Can't you see the difference between the American Spam and now?
>>19889236Bakkerfags are still spamming, so no.
>>19889242No, not really.
>>19889242Pretty much this.
>>19889242>Everything I don't like is SPAM!!!!You clearly don't know what "spamming" means.
>>19889248Repeating the same bullshit is spam.
>And things went wrong, and time passed, and there were a couple of small wars back home that meant various members of the crew were technically blood enemies for months or years at a time, but it’s very hard to sustain that kind of nonsense when you’re zipping through the asteroid belt with Mars behind you and Jupiter ahead, and no government had managed to get a political officer on board. The only bit of rampant nationalism was Eda Ostrom, a geologist, who taught everyone Danish through sheer force of personality and taking double shifts, so that her native tongue was our lingua franca by the time we arrived. The rest of the long-running edutaintment was Jain Diaz from the NASA contingent teaching us considerate use of pronouns with sufficient patience and determination that ze even had the most hardcore Russians respecting hir life choices. Ze was an indicator of just how much looser things had got in the States after the fighting, which I suppose is some small consolation. By the time the interplanetary satnav told us we’d reached our destination, then, we were fully up on nonbinary etiquette and everyone’s messages home were peppered with incomprehensible Danish slang.
>>19889288Is that your book?
>>19889288Reads like shit.
>>19889248If someone emailed you the same nonsense every day what would you call it?>but but butNo one makes excuses for good posts
>>19889301No one is mailing you anything, though. So that's a false equivalent. Use a filter like everybody else, retard.
>>19889305Would be even better if you stop posting the same shit everyday.
>>19889311Not my problem.
>>19889311No, not really.
>>19889301They don’t care. All they want is to kill /sffg/.
do bakkerfags read?
>>19889305>Just ignore the problemMore excuses
>>19889325I don't remember asking, but then again, not my problem, honey.
>>19889327ExcusesWho asked for Bakkerspam?
if you want to discuss books go to /v/, /tg/ or /tv/ this is not the place for that
If I want a fantasy world + monster hunting should I read The Witcher?
>>19889248All these people do is bitch and moan when filters already exist. Except that's it's harder to filter bitching posts, which in turn becomes the thread's spam. I didn't make picrel, but it pretty much sums these people. They enjoy the bitching and moaning so no point engaging with them. >"OMG ALREADY RUINED THE THREAD!!!"Don't reply to me.
are we getting raided by americans again?
>>19889356Too early for that.
>>19889356No, just the same bakkerfags ruining the thread.
>>19889359It's nowhere near what you're probably imagining it is. I also wouldn't choose books on a specific premise like that, but that's just me.
>>19887576western books normally contain nigs, trannys and faggots, dont you find western books to be fucked up? why do you want to read western?
>>19889360Does it trouble you?
>>19889364Well what is it then?
bakkerchads ruling supremehaters see so they cope and screamseething so hard they blow steam intense emotion fills their pants with cream
>>19889369It's generic fantasy. Read something better.
>>19889342>If I want a fantasy world + monster hunting should I read The Witcher?You should read the novelization of monster hunter
How many books have you read so far? or how many books do you think you have read so far?
>>19889400We don't read. Just take a look at the thread.
>>19886273>someone draws unofficial fan art>start sperging out at the source material???also nice reddit pic
And it's ruined.

I've seen Bakker spam on /a/, /pol/ and /v/Who's paying these autists
>>19889530He's just a very good writer, I honestly don't think there's anything more to it.
>>19889530Ask Reddit. They come from there.
>>19889533There truly is nothing better, that's the issue.
>>1988940022 for the year so far. Read 210 books last year.
>>19889276lol nothey are all words from lotr that I don't understandswear to god i'm leaving this book with a dictionary's worth of geology
>>19889337>/tv/We had some pretty good stealth /sffg/ threads on /tv/ while the wheel of time show was airing. But I think situations like that are the only times you can get away with book threads on that board.
>>19889288ever heard of run-on sentences? most people consider them unpleasant to read
