I'm midway through the second dark tower book. I thought the first was pretty good, but this one is much better.
Can't wait to read the other 5.
Picked up a couple of books - my school was literally giving them away.
Robin Cook - Outbreak
Stephen King - Skeleton Crew (amazing time killer)
Charles Dickens - David Copperfield
Erich Maria Remarque - All Quiet on the Western Front
William Makepeace Thackeray - Vanity Fair
Dennis Overbye - Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos
I'm quite happy.
Read Slaughterhouse 5, it was good. To be honest though I preferred Cat's Cradle and maybe Galapagos, not sure. I think Galapagos was more enjoyable but Slaughterhouse 5 had more substance and depth. It was still good though.
I make ~$1.80 per eBook and ~$2.80 per printed book.
my father just bought me the prince
Has anyone here read the The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963? A pretty good book, if I do say myself.
Just finished reading REAMDE, loved it, but it's Neal Stephenson, so it'd be hard not to. Kinda hated the main character a little, but not enough to keep me from loving it.
After I finished Cryptonomicon for the second time (which is a fucking journey), I've gone on a huge Stephenson bent. Gonna read Cobweb next, then Diamond Age, then the Baroque Cycle. If my calculations are correct, I should be done in about ten years.
Just finished Zahn's Star Wars trilogy. Much better than almost anything else in the EU.
Just got The Book of Deacon for free from Amazon Kindle Bookstore. So far I'm enjoying it. Gotta thank FreeKindleDude for posting it.
Should I read Brave New World or 1984 first?
recently finished At Swim Two Birds by Flann O'Brien.
it's funny, it's weird, it's very Irish. Recommended
it's weird last week i saw the trailer for hunger games, which led me to read about the book and just an hour ago i finished the third book in the triology, very good reads but they don't beat the first book
Finished Cat's Cradle recently.
Christ, that ending sure was bleak. I don't mean to say that it's caused me to re-evaluate my life, or that it was exceptionally dark, but I did not expect that at all. (Not massive spoilers, but I just don't really feel like giving anything away.)
Started on A Feast for Crows yesterday evening.
I'm halfway through already...
Finished the Lord of the Rings Trilogy by JRR Tolkien on Monday and finished Lunatics by Dave Barry and Alan Zwieble today.
I'm now gonna start The Hobbit.
By the way, the ePub is unrestricted. Once you buy it you can do what ever with it. If it gets popular it's going to be pirated anyways vv
Anyway, just finished the first Foundation book, surprisingly good. I mean, I'd heard it was good, but I expected the style to be, I'm not sure, old? But I really liked it. Next, finally get to read the first Game of Thrones.
I'm reading 'A Clash of Kings' ATM, it's amazing.
I'm reading Lone Survivor.
A basic summary is on the cover of the book above^^^. It's also about what it takes to become a Navy SEAL, as it details every part of training Marcus Luttrell had to go through to become one.
I seriously recommend this book to anyone who's interested in joining the special forces of the U.S military. It's really opened my eyes to what it takes to do what they do, which is truly some pretty intense stuff.
bleakness, life goes on. It's not the end. Also, in the first page Jonah says that he started his book "two wives ago", which implies that they do meet up with some more survivors
fucked. They showed no interest is having sex with the only other woman. Furthermore, he made reference to two wive's thing when he was writing his book on the atomic bomb. His first wife is unkown, and his second was Mona.
