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.

"Pulphead" by John Jeremiah Sullivan. An excellent collection of essays. Writing style is very similar to that of David foster Wallace.

"Darth Plagieus" the spelling is off, but I don't have the book next to me. It's about Emperor Palpatine's master, and so far, outstanding.

Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut

Amazing book with a graying theme of morality, and a sub-theme of, "We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be."

Classic Vonnegut.
