What are you reading?

Never seen or read Dune so I’m reading Dune (Not sure if I’ll go through the whole series) and then I’m gonna watch the movies after, since the sequel is just around the corner.

I’d suggest tapping out after “God Emperor” but your mileage may vary. In any case the first book is a must-read.

I heard he was told to dial back for the first two books to keep it accessible but could go all out on the third book. I’ll keep that in mind!

I just finished reading an Eighth Doctor, Doctor Who book, and starting Ronda Rouseys first book!

This is a hockey history book I’ve heard tons about and now got my hands on it and hoping to dive into it soon. It tells the story of the WHA and how it put the NHL on notice in the 1970s.

I loved “Loose Balls,” which is about the old ABA, and it’s a wild and tremendously entertaining read. Might pique your interest, @jallonar4040
