    Don't you just hate it when you pay full price for something, then you find it on sale later after its too late to take it back? Happens to me every time I buy something. Anyways, even though I hate forking out full price, this book 2700 MILES by Norbert Reichert was a good story and it was thick enough that I didn't feel ripped off at all. Save your money, the ebook is on sale on Amazon for a few days starting June 7th.

    Tom Clancy's without remorse is getting a re-read.

    Been too busy to post. Finished the final volume of Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, as good as I remembered.
    Read Night School by Lee Child, seriously lazy story.
    Revisited my childhood comic reading with Zenith phase one and two. Actually better than I remembered.
    Now reading A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    Just started reading the Dresden files currently on book six. Each book stands alone but with a few plot threads running cross the books. Lite and fun.

    Done in a film noir private investigator style. So there are femme fetals, organised crime, and cops , but the private investigator is also a wizard, so thier are also vampires, werewolves and very scary faeries.

    There was a tv series but it didn't do the books justice.

    The first book is called Storm front. worth picking up a copy of Abe.

    I love The Dresden Files, it's a shame that he's lost momentum with the writing though.

    That's in my pile of "to read" books. I'm working on "From Socrates to Sartre: the Philosophic Quest." I'm up to Kant. Very, very good book.

    Reading Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo. I decided to read this to see if I can gain anymore insight into the movie/musical's characters. It certainly does that. It also goes into excrutiatingly detailed explenations of everything else. Hugo drones on for chapters at a time on stuff that, IMHO is only mildley related to the story. I get it, there are nuns and they have certain habits (pun intended)... but good god I don't need THAT much info. The description of the war of 1812 was very detailed as well, but only one little nugget of that saga actualy pertained to the story and a character in it. I'm still digging my way through...
