    Is there like a reminder site, maybe you can hit me over the head. Even though his stuff has spanned years for me it's never hit a dead spot where i needed to be "ready" to read it.

    I know what you mean by this. There are authors or book series I love where waiting sucks, and by the time a new book comes out in the series, I've forgotten to check the website or whatever and then "all-of-the-sudden" I'm all like: "WHOA!! THE NEW BOOK IS OUT!?!?! IN PAPERBACK!?!?!? FOR THE LAST SIX MONTHS!??!?"

    Now, reading electronically, I pre-order through Amazon. When the book is released, it is automatically delivered to the Kindle app on my iPad. Never miss a new book.

    Same here. I find the best ways to keep up are to either pre-order the book, or add a reminder to my phone calendar. For some authors, adding/following them on Facebook works, too, but that can be hit or miss, especially if you don't regularly comment or Like posts by them, thanks to the way FB does things.

    Just finished Clockwork Angels, The Novel on my commute home the other night. It was an enjoyable read, for the most part. But that was mostly because of the Rush lyrics and song titles that Kevin J. Anderson wove into the story...kinda like Easter eggs for die-hard fans of the band. The story was fairly good, but the ending left quite a bit to be desired, in my opinion.

    So, on to reading Orson Scott Card's newest!



    By the way, jammer...this is one I'd have totall forgotten about had I not put in the per-order with amazon.com. It automatically downloaded to my iPad's kindle app the day it came out!!

    What did you think of this book? This is the first Koontz book I've read in about 15 years, just getting into reading again, thank you Kindle! It was OK, but nothing like his older stuff and I agree with you, much slower. I remember his older books started from the get go and kept going. I am not sure what I will read next. I was told that Joe Hill is really good, So I think that's next.

    How long is your commute? I'm a slow reader so I'm envious of people that can read a book or two a week.

    Just read the two books of The Vitalis Chronicles by Jay Swanson. Hope a third book is in the works soon.
