What I’m reading

What is so interesting that I can’t seem to be bothered to make new painting/modelling posts every single day? I’ll tell you. 

 

Some of the litterature I have to keep up with

That’s right, it is exam time, which means I’m doing a lot of reading. And, as you can tell from the picture, it’s MOSTLY curriculum litterature. But I also spend some time on the dayly paper, the monthly car magazine and, more relevant to this blog, Warhammer 40K-litterature. Currently Dan Abnett’s The Lost omnibus. Those novels are simply addictive to me; some time ago I decided to take a break from 40k-reading, and started to read this other series. I made it through three books before I had to jump back, and now I’m busy re-learning all the names of those under Colonel-Commissar Gaunt’s command. If you have ANY interest at all in the Warhammer 40, 000-universe, I’m just telling you: The Gaunt’s Ghosts-series. Seriously.

This other Warhammer 40K-series I’m reading is The Horus Heresy. The “40K-break” I had has made me unable to keep up the pace, and so I haven’t read the two latest additions; Nemesis and The First Heretic.  When I’m done with the first of four novels in The Lost, I will most certainly switch over, that I might get back on track in the 31st milennium. For those of you that don’t know: The Horus Heresy-series is about the catastrofic events that broke The Emperor’s great crusade, and plunged the galaxy into a 10, 000 years long war that rages more fiercely than ever in the 41st milennium (the present date of Warhammer 40, 000, hence the name). Epic reading, I can assure you; both dark tragedy and magnificent triumph awaits the reader of this fantastic collaborative series.

Don’t worry though, I’m in the process of assembling a Land Raider Crusader, details will be coming soon.
