This is a thread for nerds people who want to discuss books they are reading (or have read or want to read) without making a thread about it.

I'm reading a book on quantum theory that blows my mind.

I'm finally reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It's amazing. And also, great idea, Lucius.

Just about done with Jane Eyre as a summer assignment for school (2 more chapters I'll finish in a bit xD)

I'm commenting so I remember to write a review after.

Terry Brooks is one of my favorite fantasy authors, I'd recommend Sword of Shannara if you want to get started on him. Fair warning though, all of his books are pretty dense.

Another fantasy recommendation that's good for all ages (my 12 year old brother and my mom liked it) is the Leven Thumps series by Obert Skye, it's more lighthearted and very adventurous.

A couple book recommendations I have are The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells, and War Of The Worlds by H. G. Wells.
Both are really really good books.
I'm also a nerd for books about space, and astronomy. XD

I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I'm planning on getting the next two books soon. I found it really interesting. :fox-:):
Now I've just been reading Marley & Me since I've only ever seen the movie and even then I haven't seen it in forever.
