    I am, of course, only familiar with his most famous work and finally took the plunge into branching out and seeing what else he's got.

    I finished the final book of the Mistborn trilogy on Friday. It was such a good trilogy. Definitely plan on reading more Brandon Sanderson, but for now I'm back on Bram Stoker's Dracula after putting it down half way through not long ago.

    I have enjoyed all the different genres he dabbled in: sci-fi, horror, fantasy, mystery, literary fiction, etc. Whatever he tried, he succeeded, IMO.

    Latest books: The Age of Napoleon (1975) by Will and Ariel Durant, the eleventh and final (yay!) work from their The Story of Civilization series. It took a couple of decades to actually read them from cover to cover (I got them for free when I joined the History Book Club back in the '90s), but I'm glad I finally took the plunge.



    On my Kindle, I'm also reading Of Plymouth Plantation (1651) by William Bradford.

    In that case, which of his books would you suggest I move to when I finish this one?

    Hmm... since you have only read The Illustrated Man and (I believe) Fahrenheit 451, here are the other essentials to read:

    The Martian Chronicles - his greatest sci-fi work, IMO.
    Dandelion Wine - probably his finest novel of pure literary fiction, it's also the first thing I ever read of his (over forty years ago).
    Something Wicked This Way Comes - his proudest achievement from the horror genre.

    I could add so many more, but that should hold you for a while.

    Has anybody been on a reading retreat?
    I'm thinking about one next year because I don't really like holidays, I just stay at home and read in my library. However, I am awful at switching off from work and inevitably end up doing things. So, I feel like a reading retreat could be good for me
