    Sweet! I was never really into reading books. I tried ,a lot, while i was in high school, but I never managed to get through a single book. Anyways, this is what I'm having read to me at the moment:



    It's read by Roy Dotrice, who has a pretty good voice for the series, IMO. My only issue with him, and even Dexter pointed this out, is that he has a not so good voice for the female characters. I got used to it as I went on, but later in the series, he changes some of the voices and it just throws me off. This is my second time going through the series. I'll be sure to look for some of the other books mentioned here. Especially World War Z.

    I just finished We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves and loved it. In a weird way it reminded me of Vonnegut, not in the story line but in the voice of the character and the way the story unfolded. Highly recommend it. Book Review: 'We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves' By Karen Joy Fowler : NPR

    Next I'm thinking of reading This Book Is Full of Spiders by David Wong - anybody read it (or his other stuff)?

    Do graphic novels count? I've been reading the Grendel series from Matt Wagner and friends. In the past, I'd read early Grendel (Hunter Rose/Christine Spar era) and late Grendel (Grendel Kahn era), but this is the first time I'm reading the entire series from start to end to see how the story progressed from the early days to the Grendel Kahn era.

    If you can read it, or someone else reads it to ya...I say ALL IN. Ok, cereal boxes,recipes etc...lets don't be wiseasses about it. But any kind of fiction/nonfiction/graphic novel feel free.

    cereal boxes ruled!

    Honestly though reading Gideons Sword. It glossed over the media leak of potential terrorists having a nuke. In and of itself thats a whole novel that doesn't even need a conclusion

    Don't forget the traveshamockery of removing the 'sugar' from 'Sugar Corn Pops'. And I think they are just 'Smacks' now.
