Bo: Both more "meaty" and "immersive", I think. I like to get lost in my books, that is to say, immerse myself in them. XD

Blaze: Thank you for the update and please thank Zukyun for weighing in as well. XD

I was convinced enough that I purchased the first three books from Amazon onto my Kindle. I will give those a try first and then see if I want to continue reading. :3

On another note, I have not finished Dave Eggers's A Hologram for the King but I did read The Circle and I have to say that it was exactly the kind of engaging, thought-provoking book that I was looking for previously. I would recommend it, although I know that there is a film coming it too, with Emma Watson and Tom Hanks in the lead roles, so maybe people would like to watch the film instead of reading the book.
Not sure what to expect from the film but the book really made me think twice about my usage of social media and the digital age in general.

All in all, I think I will give A Hologram for the King another try. I was really interested in watching the film too but I put it off because I would like to read the book first.

Btw, I hope people are okay with these mini discussions in the thread. I like to hear my fellow readers' opinions on what they are reading.


OOOOO!!!! I just had an idea: how many of you would be interested in starting a Zantarni book club? XD

I love discussions about books in general XD
And I am definitely interested in a Zantarni book club!

Now that I'm finished with the classroom portion of school, I can read books that are not textbooks now :/
I'm not sure if I'll make my goal of 20 books this year, but I'll at least give it a shot. I haven't been that interested in reading lately, not after everything I just read for school.

A Zantarni book club might be interesting...

Yay, at least two people interested in a book club. Well, three, if you include me.

I will put something together and post some of my suggestions and then we could maybe vote on which book should be under discussion?

Bo did make a book review club on here...but there was no real interest in it. Sad

But Bo might be interested in a book club on here.

I remember that Bo, I posted a review in it but I never followed up. How bad of me! Sad

Anyway, the thread is up, head on over there and post some suggestions. XD
