    I have, (of course, lol) and I met him. :)

    I asked specifically about that book, told him it was simply to damn short, lol.

    He said eventually he would go back and write a real history of that time period.

    Can't wait for him to finish his current series so he can go back to Kylar and durzo





    You think wrong :)

    After seeing the Jack Reacher trailer, I seriously thought it was a Saturday Night Live spoof at first. Who could possibly be intimidated by Tom Cruise? Wouldn't you just crack up laughing? What were they smoking, and where can I get some?

    That is the best response to that trailer I have seen!

    Currently reading Zero Day by David Baldacci, who I started reading because Lee Child listed him as an author he did not like.

    I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower again. It's a really quick read, I forgot how quickly it goes from the last time I read it.

    I'm not sure what to start next, I'm thinking A Game of Thrones... a friend of mine really digs that series.

    I've only seen the first episode (or maybe the second as well), so I'm hoping that once I get past that part I'll be more engaged with it.

    I haven't found any new books really engaging lately, I keep re-reading old books that I've read a hundred times. Hope this one clicks with me soon. :)

    Yeah it is rare that that actually happens... I think harry potter and others like it should take a clue and follow the books more

    About Time: Cosmology and Culture at the Twilight of the Big Bang by Adam Frank

    I was reading

    The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations That Transform the World by David Deutsch but shelved it for the time being. It was not quite what I thought it was and I kept getting side tracked while reading it.
