    Leviathan Wakes, I am like 70% finished with it, this is the first true space opera I have read(besides hgttg). It is somewhat firefly like, I like it.

    dont forget to pick up ICE's book too they are not part of the book of the fallen but some of them (mostly return of the crimson guard) are very important to the denoument

    The book in bold. I'm about two thirds of the way through it and so far it is just fantastic. If the last third is as good as the rest, you'll not be disappointed when reading it, imo

    Sometimes updated...

    Mark bowden's Guest of the ayatollah. Haven't finished but is pretty good. The other read is an old hunting dog trainer called "gun dog" by Richard wolters.

    Rereading Under the Dome-



    That way I can complain about everything they're changing to the old man (who doesn't read) when it comes on.




    I'm already not happy that King let them change a lot of the main players story lines.

    Im at the end of Earth Strike, the first book in the Star Carrier series by Ian Douglas. Im in love with the book, you really get a good connection with the characters, so if you like a good Scifi book with more than just space battles then this is a good read!

    Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry its a good zombie book so far. I picked it up because of I'm a fan of his Joe Ledger series.

    A Feast for Crows. I'm not expecting another epic awesome-fest out of it like A Storm of Swords, as it seems unanimously the weakest book in the series, but I like it okay so far, though I just started it. But damn, ASoS was crazy...like the whole second half of the book (which would be GoT season 4 next year) is full of 'holy shit' moments time and time again.

    'Nothing to Envy' - Barbara Demick. Vivid accounts of people's experiences of North Korea. It depicts what society is like there, but it also focusses on individuals personal experiences of the famine which makes for very harrowing reading.

    Just finished Crossroads of Twilight from The Wheel of Time last week. Man, these last few books have not been too interesting. And I'm tired of having 50% of the book nothing but describing the clothing and jewelry everyone is wearing. I'll have New Spring finished tonight. It is actually really enjoyable. I guess it has to do with not so many plots and characters going on like the main story. So ready to be complete with this series.

    IMO the story is still great, I just started skimming over the descriptions like that in the later books. The good news is that one more and you'll be on to the books that Brandon Sanderson wrote and he breathed new life into it IMO.

    Myself I've gotten through most of the Dresden files, am listening to Cold Days now (I've done them all on Audio books). Ghost Tales didn't really feel right to me, I think it was because James Marsten didn't read it though.

    Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. By Douglas Hofstadter.

    It was a present, because I enjoy math and logic.

    The Dresden Files: Book 8- Proven Guilty.

    I have the entire run of the series, 13 books and 1 collected anthology of short stories, an it is all great modern fantasy.

    Martin's "Fevre Dream." Good stuff.
    When I want a quick single shot story, I'll read a Louis L'Amour western or one of Elmore Leonard's westerns. Love that genre.

    Johanne Hildebrant's "Krigare", or warriors in english.

    "They woo her as a fearsome mistress, challenge her because it makes them feel more alive than anything else. The warriors has given her many names. Ishtar, Kali, Pallas Athena, Freya, they were all aspects of the lust and terror of near death. For others, she was rather a tough old relative that you had to hang out with sometimes. [...] But it does not matter how hard she flirts and strutts around, for those who did not escape her seduction arts there was only sorrow, pain and death. She was an insatiable bitch that took far more than she gave and the best thing was to stay far away from her. "


    So far so good.

    "You will make lots of money on your book,' said Pierre. 'I think not, documentary books rarely sell well. I must be stupid to keep on with it. I do not even know why I became a war correspondent. It is poorly paid, people are shooting at you, you live a uncomfortable life, you get zero support from home and you get attacked by people who do not have a clue what they are talking about."

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
