    That cover is shopped. I've seen that tree scene in it's own image.

    That's actually a legit book, however, when it was first released it probably made use of a combo of stock photos, since the author was not well known or famous before it. "The Name of the Wind" was what made Patrick Rothfuss famous.

    The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark is the first book in The Kingdom Keepers series set inside the
    Walt Disney World Resort, written by Ridley Pearson and published by Disney Book Group. It is set inside the Magic Kingdom. It features five young protagonists battling against villains known as the Overtakers for control of the parks.
    It's a pretty good book series so far, I'm currently reading the second book, Disney At Dawn. Excellent read if you have the time.

    I'm reading the Darkness Series by Harry Turtledove. Stopping by the book store to buy the next book:



    I highly suggest it to those that like history. It's essentially a believable fantasy sci-fi book, based on WWII with guns replaced with blaze wands and bombs replaced with dragon eggs. The entire series is quite interesting, and I read half of the second book in a day or two.

    Once I'm done with this series, it'll be off over to Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged just to see what the buzz is about. I got the cheap paper back version, so microscopic text on 1200 pages.

    Just started reading this in English with my recently bought Kindle.

    As not a native English speaker, there's some words I don't quite understand, but thank God for the built-in Kindle dictionary which is easy as hell to use and makes it all much faster. Even thought there's some words it doesn't catch, I can tell by the context and I can understand the reading.

    The bad thing is I go at a slow pace but hopefully I'll get used to reading in English, I'd really like to improve it. I'll have time to read in spanish when I read some spanish book.

    All the Brian Herbert books are shit and Frank Herbert is a god.
    Dune really didn't grab me when I first read it. I should probably give it another go. It's still sitting in my to read pile

    Reading a novel called "Dance Dance Dance" by Haruki Murakami, it's brilliant, as is everything that man craps out. He could spit on a piece of used toilet paper, and it would still be book of the year.
    I have a feel that this book could burn me if I'm not careful. Also, Gimmethechocolate.

    Murakami's pretty good. I haven't read Dance Dance Dance but I read Kafka on the Shore and Wild Sheep Chase pretty recently. They were good, but I've kinda had enough of him for now so I'm going to wait a while before reading anything else by him.

    Just finished Ready Player One and it's pretty good. The story's OK and the characters are interesting, though I noticed quite a lot of unnecessary pandering to 80's geek culture. Some pandering's OK but it was just too much. All in all a pretty good book though.

    Edited:

    It shames me that it's lesser known than works of pure fiction like All Quiet.

    Just ordered a copy of Mere by Robert Reed.


    I love Reed's previous books - they're a weird combination of hard science-fiction with soft science-fiction.

    I have a kindle 5 and I really like it. I don't think the upgrade to the one with the keyboard is worth it if you have regular access to wifi though. I would ignore the kindle fire, it looks more like a tablet than an eReader, they are just using the kindle name for recognition but it won't have any of the benefits that a regular kindle has. Long battery life, easy to read screen etc.

    Lan is cool, but he's generally boring to me.

    My favorite male character is probably Mat, and Rand second. I never really liked Perrin, even though he reminds me most of myself.

    I guess I don't like myself, derp.

    We talk about books here. Books are good for you. Read some.

    RULES:
    1) Talk about books and only books. No posts that don't have to do with books please.
    2) DO NOT SPOIL BOOKS
    3) When introducing a book, include a picture, breif summary, and personal thoughts on the book.
    4) Do not flame others for their book tastes. Not even 'Twilight'

    Other thread was just autolocked, I think.

    Also I'm reading Eragon again just because.

    I love those books. It's like chocolate, I really know I shouldn't, but I do.

    So far I'm loving it, if you don't mind not owning physical copies of books anymore you'll be quite satisfied, it's easier to hold than books, doesn't hurt your eyes, easy to get books from the internet, a nice easy and fast to use dictionary for various languages, note taking and underlining (people say it's tedious doing this with only the 5button one, but I think it's just a matter of getting used to).

    Probably couple more, but I just woke up and I'm not fully functional yet. The only drawback is not all books are on ebook format which sucks. You can still try to find the pdf for them and get them in the Kindle.

    About mangas, I don't know, it can render images but the quality isn't that good, I don't know how it would fare with mangas.

    I've tried to reading game of thrones and wheel of time before but i could never get my claws sunk into the story line and I don't like many books that start off really slowly.
    My favorite series' would have to be:
    Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind
    The Dark Towers series By Stephen King
    The Inheritance quadrilogy By Christopher Paolini
    Artemis Fowl series by Eon Colfer
    The Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz
    Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordon
    Finnaly, The Captain Underpants Saga by Dav Pikey

    Aye, you can connect to the internet (you need access to some wifi net first) and browse stuff, but don't expect it to be working well, it's still experimental and it doesn't really work that well, for example LMAO pics will crash it, on facebook you can't check notifications, etc. As long as they're not 'complex' sites it won't have any problem.

    Certain models have free 3G, yeah. Only really useful for downloading books though, since the browser is terrible.

        I'm extremely worried for rand after his SECOND brush with semirhage. His touching of the dark ones power may ruin him
