Yeah I felt the same way. The main reason I wanted to get through it was because I had other books on my to-do list that I wanted to read. But I found myself pretty solidly sucked into the universe that King created there. Really interesting. I liked the ending, too.

And because of what everyone's been saying, I think I'll take up Ender's Game when I finish A Dance with Dragons, which should be a couple days.

I actually read GRRM's Dying of the Light yesterday instead of Ender's Game. I thought it was really well done. I don't fully understand the significance of the ending, but I really enjoy how the book was done.

Started Ender's Game this morning, a little over 50 pages deep. Very cool. I'll finish it some time this week between work and helping people move.

Enjoyed Ender's Game thoroughly. Very cool book. Most people think it's the best in the series, but I'm gonna give the second book a shot. I might read Tolkein's Children of Hurin or King's Under The Dome first, though, since I already have them in the mail.

Just finished up the last book in the Hunger Games series (Mockingjay: Suzanne Collins).

Looking for some suggestions on a similar read.

Edit- Probably gonna pick up the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

How'd you like the hunger games? I placed a pretty big order on Amazon tonight but passed that one up. Worth getting?

Yes, incredibly worth getting. Loved those books.

Just got Blasphemy by Douglas Preston and Under the Dome by Stephen King for Christmas. Reading the latter first.

Definitely. One of the better series I've read in a while.

You should def read girl with the dragon tattoo that series was one of the best ones I've read. Another good book like that one is The Hypnotist

Just finished Ex-Patriots by Peter Clines. Good read.

Now moving onto "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline as it was highly recommended by quite a few fellow nerd's (key being Scalzi).

Then after that I need to finally start knocking out the last few Michael Connelly books (starting with The Reversal).

Just finished The Fed which was interesting, but nothing earth shattering. It put a lot on the table.

I think while I'm still on break I'm going to re-read The Pendragon Series I remember reading it when I was younger and enjoyed it, time to see if it's like I remember.

Edit: Cool tidbit the main character of this series goes to Stony Brook JH, and I go to Stony Brook Uni. IDK I thought it was a cool coincidence. wait "Stony Brook was a little town in Connecticut" not the same.

Digitard, I read Scalzi's blog also and on his recommendation I picked up a few books by Christopher Moore. Reading " Lamb" the Gospel according to Biff Christ's Childhood Pal . Good light satire about jesus and biff starting at age ten.

"Good Strategy Bad Strategy" by Richard Rumelt. It's encouraging to see real thinkers in the field. Too many posers in the business world and this helps expose them.
