A whole lot of book with detailed world building. In for the long haul and at that point will have to look back and see which of these books are remember fondly.
Michael and 24 other people liked Trish's status update
Trish is 70% done with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

By the way: 42 is not only the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. It was also Mulder's apartment number in the X-Files. Coincidence? I think not!
Paper Girls #1 by Brian K. Vaughan
"Meh. The concept was interesting but I felt lost. I had too many questions at the end of the first volume to feel satisfied. I'd give it a second chance, but I'll wait till there are a few more volumes out so I can get more of the story at once."
Michael is 73% done with The Way of Kings: So many stories. I am enjoying this, but it does feel like a bit of a commitment.

The Parade by Dave Eggers

If you read Dave Eggers you know his style. Mostly it is from the point of one person inner dialogue that always seems to suffer from some form of neuroses. That has not changed and you know i enjoy it. He makes it work.

This can be hardly be called

The book seems to meander. I enjoyed the characters but the story just sort of let me feeling meh. IT wasn't bad but it, not one I am sure I will remember after a few days.

Eduardo Galeano
“No history is mute. No matter how much they own it, break it, and lie about it, human history refuses to shut its mouth. Despite deafness and ignorance, the time that was continues to tick inside the time that is.”
Eduardo Galeano

Neil Gaiman
“I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

“Haters are like crickets. Crickets make a lot of noise, you hear it but you can’t see them, then right when you walk by them, they’re quiet.”
