    I read the book about Thrall way back when, "Lord of the Clans" I believe.

    As far as favorite book... I don't really know actually. I'm terribly outdated in terms of modern literature, outside of science tech.

    When I was studying Russian (don't ask why), I surprisingly liked "The Duel" by Chekhov. Although I don't remember much anymore, the impression still sticks.

    College pretty well and good kicked the love of reading out of me. But I’ve been trying to get back into it and really enjoyed Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell. It’s like if Harry Potter was written for adults with something resembling a measure of class consciousness.

    and i do still make a yearly pilgrimage through the LOTR series.

    Ive read some of the older books that take place around the WC3 era and the BFA/SL lead up books. Don't remember too much of the older books and the newer ones weren't anything crazy but was cool seeing one of the characters in the SL book having the same name as one of my toons.

    Most recent reads have been Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive series. Probably gonna read some of the new Star Wars books after I finish the book I'm currently reading. My reading habits are pretty basic

    Silmarillion kicks my ass without fail every time I pick it up

    Typically I prefer nonfiction, or fiction that acts as an allegory for a systems study. I reread Finite and Infinite Games by James Carse every few years. The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason gets a little dense and preachy in places, but I found it uncannily accurate and return to it every few years as well.
