I'm currently reading 11/22/63. No idea how far in I am, but it is awesome.

EDIT: My KF says that I am 33% done. I guess that would put me somewhere around 280 in the actual book.

I like alkido (sp?) - it's icon is a bookshelf. Pretty nice... about 2/3s done with ... Darkness tell us... it's kinda cool. Starts out about a Ouija Board ...

The pacing seems pretty good so far, sometimes it's like I just can't read fast enough.

Though I will say this about the kindle (and all e-readers), I miss the 'book' smell. >.>

I liked 11/22/63 a lot, even the ending wasn't bad, which if you've read a lot of Stephen King you know endings can be a weakness of his.

I actually don't mind spoilers, but other people are so sensitive about stuff like that. I'm still gonna read it, so doesn't matter to me much.

EDIT: Just finished 11/22/63. What a book. I was a little baffled by the ending, but it was a great read nonetheless. I'm going to read Tinker Tailor next.

i'm on the third book of a surprisingly good series called 'The Queens Thief' by Megan Whalen Turner. I'm totally engrossed in it, books are shorter than I would like (avg 200 pages) but I have read the first three in the past week they are so good.

I've read almost all Stephen King, the only ending I had true hatred for was The Dark Tower Series.

I've read most of King as well, he's one of my favorites. It's not that I hate a lot of his endings, it's just that it seems like he doesn't know how to wrap things up sometimes. "It" comes to mind as one of my least favorite endings of his. I haven't gotten around to finishing The Dark Tower series yet. It's been so long since I've read the first ones I would have to start over from the beginning, and that's a big commitment. I'm sure I'll get to it eventually.

Now, I haven't read the book, but the Langoliers (spelling..?) movie was one that I really like, but hate the ending. I remember that feeling everytime I watch it. I do hope to read the book sometime though.

I'm still reading Darkness Tell Us. Not going very fast, especially considering that I started out very fast on it. Eh. Oh well.

Started Tinker Tailor, but stopped for a few days and just couldn't get back into it. LeCarre just introduces way too many characters for me to keep up with.

Finished TTSS and thoughely enjoyed it, takes a while to get into all the names and spy slang and some of the plot is quite vague at times but proves spy story doesnt have to be all guns and chases .

Have no idea what to read next though :/

OMG! That is a GREAT read. I'm absolutely dying for the third one to come out.






I've started a series called "Godspeaker"
Kind a strange but pretty interesting all the same

Yeah, I finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a while back, very cool. It starts off slow, introducing you to all the characters, but it is very cool.

I grabbed that in the market sale a few days ago for a measly 20p.

Done reading the Millennium Trilogy! And I love love all 3 books. It's one of the most well written series I've read. Great and in-depth characters development. Exceptional plot that was never lacking suspense. Only thing I had a difficult time with were some of the character names and names of places around Sweden. I simply love Stieg Larson's writing style and greatly sadden when I learnt (in the 3rd book) that he passed away right after he gave the manual scripts for the Millenium Trilogy to his editor. Which means he wasn't able to appreciate the fame that his series has generated.

For me personally the ending to the Dark Tower was too lack luster and predictable. After waiting for years for the 7th book, I was a bit disappointed with how King ended a great series.

I am currently reading Ender's Game and I enjoy it so far. I'm not really a big sci fi fan as I can't imagine some of the space ships and what not as detailed as the books describe it. The reading level is quite lower than what I'm used to, lol.

I found this site that states what level most books are. I find it very surprising that LOTR is considered a level 6. I would have thought it was a level 9. Ender's Game is also a level 6.

Good to hear it

Ahh this is her: Karen Miller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I agree with all of this (but I've only read the first book thus far), but the names are tricky. And it is quite sad that he passed away before the fame.... many re-prints, movies, more movies.... Very cool writing style though.

Reading Under The Dome, by of course Stephen King. 51% in according to my Fire. Tried reading the hardcover about 2 years or so ago but had to put it down for awhile and lost interest. Good so far, another of King's epic lengthy tales though.

I definitely recommend it....I'm don't know where you left off, but all but the last 2-3 pages is great. But the ending blows. There is another one coming out on 4/24 that takes place between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla, but it's similar to Wizard and Glass in that it is a story told by Roland to the rest of the Ka-tet.

Liked that one a lot except...wait for it...the ending wasn't that great lol. Wasn't terrible but seems like a cop out. But that book reminded me of classic King, how dark it was with the characters being so evil to each other. Let us know what you thought when you're finished.

On the Dark Tower books, I know for sure I read the first three, I have number four but I can't remember if I ever read it or not lol.

Just finished Darkness Tell Us last night, it was okay, not great, but now awful. Thinking it might be time for either A) the girl who played with fire or B) the godfather (again)....

Probably go with the one I haven't read a dozen times... but we'll see.

Yeah, that's probably the right choice.... re-reading a book over and over or reading a new one shouldn't be too much of a choice really, especially when I did quite enjoy the first.
