Reading The Cinema of Michael Mann right now, it's a pretty in depth look into all of his films up to Miami Vice. Interesting read for anyone who is a fan of his films.

Physics of The Impossible By Michio KaKu. I like his radio show but the book was a little dry and not as interesting as i thought it would be.

Judas Unchained by Peter Hamilton. It's the 2nd part of the story that was started in Pandora's Star. I can't put it down!



Be sure to pick up The Nights Dawn Trilogy. Another page turner by him.

Words cannot describe how good this series is. Be prepared to read about 4k pages. You'll enjoy every last one of them.

Finished John Dies At The End last night. Possibly my new favorite novel, fucking hilarious. Now it's on to A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. Hoping to get most of the way through before my next new book arrives.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Had a lot of down time at work, so read John and Dave and the Temple of X'al'naa'thuthuthu, part one of the sequel to John Dies At The End. I really really want David Wong to finish it now, as it's still hilarious.

Everyone has been blowing their wad about "John Dies at the End" so I grabbed it from the library, will start tonight.

I'm just finishing up Empire Falls which was really surprisingly good.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

The Empire Falls miniseries was pretty kickass. Talk about surprise endings. That shit threw me for a loop.

just finished a game of thrones. loved the first book, it didnt grab me as much as a wizards first rule, but i still enjoy the characters very much. hopefully the series keeps the pace unlike the sword of truth series did. i was a pretty sad with the deaths of a couple characters
Spoiler
but i had a feeling about some of them. oh well.

gonna start a clash of kings sometime today.

I couldn't even make it halfway through Wizard's First Rule. Probably because I read Martin's books first. They really spoil you. It's like trying to get into a cop show after you've already watched The Wire.

i read wizards first rule over a year ago, and subsequently the whole series and really enjoyed the first and most of the others.

i think goodkind might be a slightly better storyteller (so far) but martins characterization is superior. im about 50 pages into a clash of kings, trying to sneak in a few pages here and there while im at work.

yeah i already had one friend say something. he didnt use the characters name, but after reading the first book im fairly certain i know who he was talking about. so, hopefully its not them, and if it is, oh well. i had to cut him off and say i wasnt done yet.

Im currently reading "Go Ask Alice" it's a true story, and in dairy-written form.
It's about a teenage girl who gets into hardcore drugs and dies in the end.
It's very interesting.

I wouldn't rely too much on your own suspicions though. I can't count how many times I tried predicting what would happen and was proven so very wrong. Especially in regards to who will live or die. The third book has an "event" that will just blow your fucking mind and you'll probably stop reading for a few minutes just to process what happened. I get goosebumps imagining how it's going to transition to the screen for the HBO series.

thats the main reason i started reading it now instead of the many other books waiting on my shelf to be read. originally i was going to wait for the 5th book to be released, but seeing as how its been delayed so many times and the HBO series officially being picked up and in production i decided to start.

Just finished Why E=mc2 (and why should we care?). Its a great book for non-physicists to get a grasp on why light is a constant and how time dilation works. Concepts like Minkowski space, Higgs Fields aren't covered to heavily which is why its not too difficult to read. You don't really need to know much mathematics to get through the book, Pythagorean Theorem is good enough. The latter half of the book goes over gauge theory and the Standard Model which may turn off some people but the first half is a very easy read.

Now to decide between The Road, The Picture of Dorian Gray, or one of the audiobooks many audio books on the hdd.

After years of harassment from some friend who are die-hard fans, I started on the Wheel of Time series yesterday. Even thought the books are huge, they seem like easy enough reads.
