Second Child would make a good movie.
Hmmm... noted. I have been looking for some horror novels myself.

I am currently reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I am really enjoying it so far. It has helped me to think about everyday tasks in a different way.

Just started Lisa Jackson's book You Don't Want To Know.

Needed something fast paced, and Lisa's books almost always deliver that.

I'm about a third done with 'The Fix', it's a burn notice book. :/ I like that show, so I sometimes read the books. But I'm a bit busy lately, so not much reading time...

All by same author? Love the series also, if they did the books right that would be a great spy series

I *think* they are all by Tod Goldberg, I don't know that for sure, but I'd think so. I don't even know how many there are, I wanna three or four.

I've read "The End Game" in the past and it was a quick read. And it's nice because the books flow very much like the show does.

Hmm thought I posed already... I'm reading the Nightshade (i think that is the name) series by Andrea Cremer. Rift is a prequel that was just released so I am reading that before the actual series

(okay, so that wasn't quite the spoiler you were expecting)

I think I'm about 70% done with the Burn notice book I'm reading... pretty good. Feels like an episode of the show... which is a good thing for a book based on a tv show.

I don't have a PC capable of gaming.

I wish there was a youtube collection of the storylines from these games.

Everyone mentions how epic of a character Revan was and all I've been able to read about him was in the recent Revan book. There he only briefly shows the extent his power in killing a Sith Lord.

I recently started up the Harry Potter series again... on number 3.

It is what it is.... I'm probably too old to be reading a book featuring 11 year old kids, but whatever.... they're not bad. *shrug*

It is what it is.... I'm probably too old to be reading a book featuring 11 year old kids, but whatever.... they're not bad. *shrug*




When I finish 1Q84 I'm gonna start on book 2 too.
I bought the whole saga, collector edition. Call me fangirl, but I love HP.

I read through 'em every couple of years, I think I read through the whole series in just over a week before the last movie came out.... Good times!

The only bummer being that I've now read them enough that I'm almost too familiar with the story... Last time I re-read them I had forgotten a lot, not this time.

Aha, you're worse than me. I'm a fangirl, but not that hard

I'd like to check out 1Q84. It's supposed to be epic. Is it hard to get into?

Totally agreed. Just buy a cheap original Xbox on eBay or something. You could probably get the console and both KOTORs for $150 or less.

Heh, I do that with a different book series, Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson's The Wheel of Time series. I usually re-read 'em all before a new one is released. The upcoming book in January is slated to be the last one. End of an era.

Currently reading: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, Book 1 of a planned ten-book series called The Stormlight Archive. If you're into high fantasy, this is strongly recommended. Not for the faint of heart, though, it's 1252 pages.

Next up will be a genre switch, I've been reading a lot of fantasy lately. I've got a couple political thrillers I've been meaning to read, I'll probably do one of those. The names are escaping me at the moment, though.

Right now you can get them both on PC via steam for closer to $10. I had a quick look at the requirements for kotor 2 and they are very low (1Ghz single core processor, 256MB Ram, 32mb graphics card, directx 9 sound card), so I'd definitely recommend doing it that way unless your PC is fairly old.

Good call. I've never been much of a PC gamer, I've always preferred consoles, so I didn't even think of doing that. Definitely a better alternative for lowest cost possible.

I'm reluctant to paint myself as a postmodern pedantic but you were actually writing a post in the thread entitled "What are you currently reading?"

Anyway...

I'm currently reading The Migraine Hotel by Luke Kennard, which is a collection of narrative poetry hybrid short pieces of writing that are quite hard to categorize but I'm liking so far. Well actually, I'm not - I'm writing a post in a thread...

Currently reading the Sovereign Stone by David a Wells. It is book 2 in the Sovereign of the Seven Isle series. If you are into wheel of time nd sword of truth it is a good series so far.

Night Angel since you are named after the series from Brent Weeks, have you read Perfect Shadow a short story about the beginning of Durzo Blint.

Started with book 6 today. Probably won't get through this one as fast as I was hoping though, got a lot of non-sense to do tomorrow (and this week)...

Oh well.
