Hey Fart Bubble, how is "Ten Cent Plague"? I am thinking about getting that book.


Its pretty good. Though it isn't blatant the writer's personal political bias does show through with the way he chooses his words and it does make it annoying but if you can get past that, its an interesting read

Currently reading "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Philippa Gregory. Been reading it since before the movie came out. I'm reading the original one too. Should be able to finish it this week so I can go see the movie this weekend.

Just finished re-reading (for the 3rd time) Battle Royale by Koushun Takami (the novel, not the manga).


That is such a fantastic book. The movie isn't bad either. I loved it. It's been two years since I read it, I should pick it up again.

I'm currently reading "Into Hot Air" by Chris Elliott. It's pretty silly, and I find myself laughing in public, which is embarrasing.

I'm reading Star Wars: Revelations by Karen Traviss


I started on that a day or so ago, very good so far. I'm trying not to read it fast because the sooner I'm done, the longer it will feel between now and when the final book comes out.

bunch of generic sci-fi/fantasy crap.
read david gerrold's a matter for men - pretty horrible
something by charles schefield - ick


Really? Neither one is really my cup of tea either, but they're both fairly respected writers. Gerrold's "When HARLIE Was One" is decent, and Sheffield won the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Campbell. Do you remember the name of the Sheffield thing you read?

I just finished The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham a little while ago. Great book and I wish I could have met Graham back when he was still alive.

Right now I'm 2 books (out of 10) into The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny. It's nice to find a fantasy book that isn't just a ripoff of Tolken and I really loved some of Zelazny's short stories.

I've still got a giant pile of books waiting for me after this too. A few years ago I found out the Goodwill close to me sells books for $0.75 each and I may have went a little crazy buying them. Now I have a backlog of books as well as games and anime. Once I finish this I think I'll read either The Spy Who Came in From the Cold or All the President's Men. If anyone wants to suggest one or the other feel free.

jlseal reminds me I need to finish the Baroque Cycle. Cryptonomicon was one of my favorite works of fiction I've read in the last ten years.

If you like cryptonomicon and haven't read Snow Crash, read Snow Crash as it is probably the greatest book ever written.

Aw, those are GREAT books. For what it's worth, the second five books are really a pale shadow (no pun intended) of the first five. Still a worthwhile read if you're hankering for more Amber after the first cycle, but bear that in mind. Also, you'll probably notice this on your own, but in case you don't, hit the spoiler tag below AFTER you finish the series.

Yeah, I'm liking it. I'm glad to be rid of the constant flashbacks of The Gunslinger. I've got to get to the book store and pick up the third book soon.


I'm thinking you won't like the fourth book then...

Just finished The Diamond Age and it felt like a complete trudge through the whole thing. I loved Cryptonomican and Snow Crash, but this was a grind.

I'm now reading both a biography on Theodore Roosevelt and the new A. Lee Martinez novel.

Check around your local thrifts. One near me does a 'Bag of books' sale once a month where you fill up a brown paper grocery bag with as many books as will fit for $5. I've also seen church book sales that do something similar on the final day.

How is that?

I've had my eye on it.


I am still relatively early into the book (its 390 pages), I have actually just gotten to the start of the plot of the main story, but from what I have read so far I am enjoying it. Stross does a great job at describing the future and his protagonist has a very interesting way of life, to say the least.
