LilacBleeds: how are you liking the Kindle? I've been looking into them. The only thing is I would have to convert my current ebooks into a kindle friendly format (and I hear through the grapevine that Amazon is pretty strict about formats...)

I am only reading school texts as of now, but I am looking forward to cracking back into 9 short stories by JD Salinger.

What format are your ebooks in at the moment? I've managed to convert everything I've needed using Calibre so far.

If you install the calibre program I linked to above, you can drag and drop in files that need converting. Right click and go Convert > Convert Individually, set the output at the top right corner as a '.MOBI' file and let it do it's work.

Then you can plug in the kindle and have Calibre send the file to it via USB. Or it can be set up to email it straight to your kindle.

It's a very useful program

Only need that for epubs really. You can email book files to your free kindle email address and it is automatically converted for you. Your personalized email address is listed in settings of kindle

That's true. Although with Calibre you can do a lot of more complex things if you play around with the settings. Like removing gaps between paragraphs (had to do that with some books from the kindle store ) or having it automatically detect and insert chapter markers for books that don't have them.

3/4 through the first book of the Sword of Truth series (by published date, I didn't start with the prequel). Another good call by NA and others, it's been an enjoyable read so far.

Should read the prequel next. It's a very short read. Then it just keeps getting better and better

Maybe that will help me figure out why the Rahl family in this book are the bad guys, and the Rahl family in a previous book I read by him which was the same 'universe' but set on Earth (The Law of Nines) were the good guys.
Or maybe that's coming somewhere in this story.
Or maybe he just reused the family name to confuse the readers and it's really not the same family at all.

I haven't read it, but this is what wikipedia has to say:

It's from the very start of the wikipedia entry so I'm assuming this isn't a spoiler, but you have been warned

You will get it within a couple books

Also law of nines will make more sense after you finish series... I would have waited to read Nine

I didn't realize that Nine was part of that universe, I thought it was standalone. I enjoyed it even without knowing all of what I'm learning now.

Yes, as a life long metal head, check out some of the lyrics from the band Death, (Human album and later), and the album Abigail by King Diamond. (a concept album that would make a great book or movie.

I enjoyed Forge of God quite a bit, and like Bear a lot. After FoG (if you like it) make sure to check out his Anvil of Stars, for more of the story.

Currently re-reading A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge in anticipation of tomorrows release of The Children of the Sky, his 3rd book set in the Tine's world/zones of thought universe. (Yay!!!)

I quite liked Cryptum (although I'm a fan of the Halo back story any way) and from the small amount I managed to get through of FoG. The guy who recommended FoG to me also said Anvil of Stars was worth a shot so I'll probably pick up that one too, thanks.

The Forge of God and its follow-on, Anvil of the Stars, are two I personally recommend.

Great reading!

A Fire Upon the Deep is one of my all time favorite books, and A Deepness in the Sky, a prequel written after is pretty great too. You'll probably get a better picture of what these are about from Amazon (or elsewhere) that what I'd be able to give you in a quick write-up.

Yeap. Last book. I've got Revan's book on preorder for my Nook app. Darth Plageuis is coming out too. I can't get enough of the Old Republic books. Waiting for Palpatine's book...should be a lot of pressure on that author.

I'm now reading Angel Fire East, the last in the Word & Void trilogy by Terry Brooks. I've been so bad at reading my books the past few months due to such substantial changes in my life, especially with work now but I'm finally making ample time to read again and am happy.

Currently read the new Chuck Palaniuk(Fight Club) book 'Damned'. It's decent so far, his last two were pretty atrocious though.
