Smile What was the last book you read?

Do people still read books? Or are they playing with their 3ds all day long?

I read Earthfall, by Orson Scott Card, the 4th book in Homecoming series and now I'm reading Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd, by Nick Mason

An HP Lovecraft anthology, forget which, I download them now. Before that was the AD&D Second Edition DM's Guide, for the hundred-thousandth time.

I am starting Xenocide by Orson Scott Card. Fellow Card fan I presume? (Oh, and I finished Eye of the Crow a couple days ago. I'm too lazy to look up the author)

The Last Oracle. A friend from work has told me about one called "Song of Ice and Fire". It looks promising! As well as "The Wheel of Time". Anyone read these two?

Lately I've been flipping through cases in a Sherlock Holmes Collection.

The last book I read was "The Gospel According to Biff: Jesus' childhood pal." It was a pretty funny book.

Started reading The Vladimir Chronicles the other day after a friend recommended it to me. It's not that bad, actually. The plot is really good and the characters are lovable. I'm waiting for the second and third books to get shipped.

Last Read: All the Hunger Games books
Currently reading: East of Eden
Plan on reading: 1984


THG series was amazing. Im in love.

East of Eden is pretty sorta alright but its so long that you feel meh all the time. But summer reading is summer reading so it has to be done.

I felt that Fellowship was the weakest of the trilogy. If you can get to Two Towers, you'll be in for a treat.

I just loved Hunger Games books. As I started reading, I couldn't stop until I read them all
Also 1984 is a very good book.

Walking Dead Compendium 2.... Does that count as a book? Graphic novel, whatever!

I have the Rapture book on its way from Amazon. Its basically a prequel to Bioshock One, from what I understand.

That's all I read, graphic novels and books set in a gaming universe. Bleh.

I read the short story a couple of years ago; a very good story. Seeing your post made me remember about the book and I just put the novel version on my buying list
