One of the best books of this type I have ever read. Utterly relentless.

I started a Shadow of Summer, but could not get into it.


so I continued with the Garrett P.I. series.

If you've never read them, maybe seek out Brian Aldiss' Helliconia sequence of novels which also features that great science-fiction archetype, the winter world.

Just picked up Hannu Rajaniemi's "The Quantum Thief".

There is a part of me that always wanted to be Ron Jeremy. I think he has lead the life that so many wish they could have lead. On the other hand, perhaps there is a sad emptiness associated with that existence. I don't know.

Re: What are you reading? December 2011

I was reading Storm of Swords in the Game of Thrones series, but I was getting burnt out on the books since many of the POV chapters were from characters that I found myself not caring much about. I'll eventually get back to it and finish it and the others out now.

Since that point, I recently finished



And I'm finally getting around to reading and about 25% into

These thoughts permeate the entire book. It was entertaining enough, and he's actually pretty funny, but there isn't much here that would surprise anyone that has a passing knowledge of who he is.

Re: What are you reading? December 2011

Well so far this month I've read
2030 by Albert brooks (great novel. Loved it. Hope Brooks writes another book soon.)

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling (funny stuff. Actually enjoyed it a bot more than Bossypants)

The Leftovers by tom Perrotta (very good. Not as good as Little Children but an interesting Read)

Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America by Leslie Knope (funny)

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (good epic-y novel)

I tried to read the Corrections by Jonathan Franzen and could not for the life of me make it past 10 pages. Uh

The Good, the Bad and the Godawful: 21st-Century Movie Reviews by Kurt Loder (decent)

COLD VENGEANCE by Preston & Child (Enjoyable if preposterous thriller)

Currenty Reading: Conversations with Clint: Paul Nelson's Lost Interviews with Clint Eastwood, 1979-1983 by Kevin Avery and Jonathan Lethem

Starting Tomorrow : Pet Sematary by Stephen King (One of the Few king Works I have not read...Also I have LIsey's Story which I am gonna start reading soon yet another of the few works of his that I have not ever read.)
