As soon as I saw the new Deluxe edition of Dune I knew it had to be mine.
Sprayed edges, killer cover, and look at those end pages! 😍
There's also a huge picture on the back of the cover slip, but when it's all spread out, it's so big I can't take a proper picture atm. Gonna try later when I'm at home.
Such a gorgeous edition! ❤️
I read this many, many years ago and recently decided to listen to the audio book. The world building is fantastic. It was a long book that I did enjoy overall but there were patches of awesome. There were scenes/events that I just loved. I was excited to read about a new movie version next year with Josh Brolin and Jason Momoa 😊 Great sci-fi ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since I‘m reading this book I figured I‘d share that I read 15-20 pages a day... I know that‘s not much, but I was wondering how many pages a day do you read-ish and what book or just the ish. Anyone willing to reply?
Absolutely loved this damn book.
If you want some really good world building, and a literary universe within a single book that has wheels within wheels, give Dune a shot.
It's not known as one of the best sci-fi book ever written for nothing.
I checked it out for myself and absolutely adore it.
Did find it a bit hard to get into at first, as it throws a lot at you, but stick with it and the payoff is worth it.
This is an AWESOME book so far! I‘m only 157 pages in and I have a lot to go. Grab it up before the movie comes out in Dec of 2020. There is already one out from 84 but I‘m doing my best to avoid it until I‘m done. By god I will finish a book before it becomes a movie.
I finished the first volume from "Dune". The series is one of my favorite.
I love "Dune" not because of its political, religious and other themes, but because of the way the author describes the planet. When I read it, I can feel the sand under my feet and the Sun in my face. The adventure. The wilderness. The silence.
I hate Jessica. She complains all the time. And she controls his son. And I hate that the author made Chani a baby factory.
Okay okay okay I know I‘ve been MIA - sorry friends. Physically okay but went through a sticky depression bog combined with some real-life things I needed@to take care of. An update to the floating shelves question! I still haven‘t put them up because I can‘t find my stud finder (🙄), but I did get my stuff together for the other wall! I like it!
Book #55: Dune is often cataloged as one of the greatest science fiction stories ever told and the precursor to all science fiction that has come since. It is also frequently listed as the first book within the bestselling science fiction series of all time. These are all titles that the book has rightfully earned. Dune contains parallels in religion...
On page 530 of Dune! It's a good read so far, some rough patches for me though to be honest 😅 it gets a little.....DRY 😂
‘Anything outside yourself, this you can see and apply your logic to it,‘ she said. ‘But it‘s a human trait that when we encounter personal problems, these things most deeply personal are the most difficult to bring out for our logic to scan. We tend to flounder around, blaming everything but the actual, deep-seated thing that‘s really chewing on us.‘
Just finished this epic of science-fiction and look forward to the new movie version. Thematically, I can see why it is being re-made, as there are a lot of themes related to nature and conservation which ought to have a broad appeal. It also has a Game of Thrones vibe which is definitely going to land well with viewers!
A couple bookish birthday gifts from my boyfriend: Dune and a subscription to One Story. I think we‘re going to try to buddy read Dune with a friend, so it might be a while before I get to it. I absolutely love the cover though! 😍 #coverlove
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday the other day! 💕
This is a reread for me but I wanted to see how they‘ve changed the wording from the earlier editions 📖😋
Absolutely love the cover art of this version. I bought it while my mom was in the hospital in and out of ICU for 100 days. It was one of my dad‘s favorite but as a child, I always was intimidated by it. Now that I‘ve finished it, I wish I would‘ve read it much sooner. But it‘s nice to have little moments to discover someone after they‘re gone. And I needed some of his wisdom to help me get through the last few months. This book gave that to me.
“Paul sensed his own tensions, decided to practice one of the mind-body lessons his mother had taught him. Three quick breaths triggered the responses: he fell into the floating awareness ... focusing the consciousness ... aortal dilation ... avoiding the unfocused mechanism of consciousness ... to be conscious by choice ...” #float #QuotsyJune19
Just barely a pick- I liked it mostly because of the intriguing world Herbert created. Political intrigue mixes with religious mysticism in unexpected ways, and it's interesting to see heroes with darker sides: you question their motives in the same way you would with politicians. The characters held me back from liking it more- the dialogue and their inner thoughts were a little stilted. But what a world to explore- worth reading just for that.
This is a little random, but do you remember that Fatboy Slim song, 'Weapon of Choice' with the video that has Christopher Walken doing an elaborate solo dance routine in a #grandhotel ? Remember that lyric, 'Walk without rhythm, and you won't attract the worm....'? I'm reading Dune now and I came to this part where the characters are walking without rhythm so as not to attract giant desert worms. Coincidence, or was Fatboy Slim a Dune fan?

Just started this behemoth and have arrived at the desert planet Arrakis. Not even 100 pages in, and there is already much political intrigue and religious lore to interpret in the Dune universe. Off to a promising start overall 🏜️ 🐛
Gonna attempt to do #riotgrams here on Litsy this month.
First up is a small #shelfie of my physical #TBR books. I‘m really working hard to get this stack down to a maximum of ten at a time (currently a couple dozen or so), because it really stresses me out to have books around that I haven‘t read.
My TBR on Goodreads is another matter entirely...
A reread for me. This has all the things that I love about fantasy books, but in a sci-fi package: richly detailed worlds and cultures with a decent helping of the mysterious.
