    this was a really good book...I am going to be as gentle about this as possible...I am not a homophobe, but parts of this book were...uncomfortable. The main character was a self-absorbed 'twink' and despite that I read thru this in 2 days. There are finnish mythology passages scattered throughout and all of the chapters are labelled with the name of the person who's p.o.v. is being presented...not what you would call 'standard'. For anyone who has ever brought in a stray broken animal...this book will touch you. Highly reccomended.

    King Lear
    Prince George: You know, Blackadder, for me socks are like sex. Lots of it about and I never seem to get any.

    Just finished the Bridge Trilogy by William Gibson, and have moved on to this:


    Also, my church is doing this "Read the Bible in a year" thing, so Deuteronomy (anything's better than Leviticus...).

    I've been on a major Orson Scott Card trip.

    Reading "Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus" right now. This book is killer alternate-history!

    I love Card. Had the pleasure of meeting him and talking to him several times when I worked at Vroman's. Guy would just sit and talk after the signings like he was an old friend...major respect for him.

    Wife bought me my first Orson Scott Card book, Ender's Game a couple months back. I read it in two days. Since then, I've read:

    - the rest of the Ender quartet (Speaker For The Dead, Xenocide, and Children Of The Mind)
    - Empire (an AWESOME sci-fi/political thriller)
    - Maps In A Mirror (his short-story collection)
    - Invasive Procedures (co-written by Aaron Johnston, this book was NOT the typical Card quality, IMO).

    Card rapidly became one of my absolute favorite writers. His character development is absolutely amazing.

    i'm borrowing this:



    pretty good so far, although the "feminine extremists" are a little annoying and the main character seems pretty dumb. :D
