Great book. I never really got into the rest of the series, but will periodically reread Dune.

I've started my reread of the entire Dresden Files series in anticipation of the next book coming out.

I recently read the last couple of Tucker Max books, A$$holes Finish First and Hiliarity Ensues, after reading his first book a couple months ago, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.

For anyone who has never heard of these books, they are sort of like romance novels for men. They are labeled what is called a "Fratire" genre.

These books are very funny and going on my top 10 favorite books of all time list. I guess I can appreciate and relate to some of his stories in those books. I don't normally read many books second or third times, but I can definitely see myself re-reading those some day.

Excellent story.

Watership Down is one of my favorites too.
Did you ever read Tales From Watership Down? It is a book of short stories about Watership Down and was published years later. It isn't the epic story, but it is like a little bonus that is fun to read after reading the original book.

I'm reading Reindeer Moon by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas. It's not as great as I had hoped, but it's something to read. The price was right at the used book store. I'm not sure which book I will move on to next. Maybe one of the other Gary Jennings stand alone novels.
