Oh no I know it's been around awhile, I'm more back lashing against its resurgence amongst evangelical Christian circles like it's the best Christian-themed fiction written along with the Left Behind series. I go to an evangelical Christian university so I never hear the end of it.

I am not ever going to touch the Twilight series. College chicks dig it though, dunno why.

Yeah I don't get that, I had never even heard of the series and then all of the sudden 3/4's of the girls at my school are way into it.

i'm re-reading the Song of Ice and Fire Series By George R R Martin

i have maybe 250 audio books at this point, and this is BY FAR the best series.



Roy Dotrice is fantastic as a narrator.....but he only did the 1st 3. John Lee is OK, but....

To me it smells like it's made out of giant worm shit!

I'm sure some people must like it though. You can still buy it.

I'm not sure why everyone is dissing the Twilight books. I read them when the darlets were reading them. (before all the hoopla) They're light reading, but reasonably entertaining.

What? Everyone else is reading War and Peace?

By the bye, of the Ender books I've read, I like Speaker for the Dead the best.

Ah. I understand. I can't listen to most Eagles tunes anymore.

I am ignoring Learning SQL by Alan Beaulieu. I should read it. Instead I'm going to ignore it and start looking up pieces of code when I need something I don't already know.

I am ignoring Learning ASL (American Sign Language) because...well, I don't know why. I just am resisting.

I just ended my ignoring streak, finished "Little Bee" last night and started "Up for Renewal". I still need to finish "The Great Mortality", "Stiff", and "Beowulf".

I am actively ignoring Carlos Castaneda's, "Art of Dreaming".

I was embarassed when I picked it up. Oddly....... I think it's kooky but maybe there is something to it....It's on iggy for now.
