Never read this thread before.  "246 pages!  Must be a lot of good discussions on books."  And this is what I see?  How naive can I be.  This is Grogheads.

Just finished Kenobi and I'm about to start Ken Follett's Fall of Giants.

At least one-third of which are wall-length reviews from me on books no one anywhere cares about.  >:D
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Just finished 1634.  Somewhere in that series, there a great idea, but it's just a hot mess.  The writing in 1634 is just awful.
