Well in the past 2 weeks I have gone through the first 3 books of the Drizzt Series by R.A. Salvatore, the first book of the Iron Druid series, started Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson on my Kobo (saving the rest of that for my flight home), and just recently picked up Volume 1 of the War of the Spider Queen (more dark Elves from the Drizzt series), The Castle by Franz Kafka (felt I needed some kind of classic) and Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson.

And I also brought Phantom by Terry Goodkind with me, I really should finish that up soon.

Stephen Colbert's America Again, Rebecoming The Greatness, we never weren't.

I decided to read Battle Royale. It is considerably more graphic than the Hunger Games.

The only real similarities are the totalitarian government and young adults fighting each other. A very gripping story however. Less than 200 pages remaining, and I still don't know who will "win".

One of us, one of us...

I finished The Shadow of the Torturer by Wolfe. I didn't enjoy it too much and won't be reading the sequels.

I started Master and Commander by O'Brian.

just finished the second to last book of Terry Goodkinds Sword of Truth. Now I need to wait till I get home in May to read Confessor...damnit.

It's been a good read, I'm going to be sad to see it come to an end. I think they could have made a much better tv show than they did out of the series. Especially now that its ended. Oh well.

Good news also my friend got his Volume 2 of the Drizzt books so I have 3 more to plow through.

Haven't read an actual book in at least over a year. Just bought, The Art of War (been wanting to read this forever), The Inferno (Dante's Inferno), and The Demonologist (some fiction book that was currently a bestseller in fiction, so why not).

Been reading The Art of War. Not sure which book I'll move onto after. They're very similar (both about adventuring into hell), but one is very old and the other new.

Kurt Vonnegut's Palm Sunday. Like a portfolio of a bunch of essays and letters he has written to/for people.

My copy has a lot of sentimental value to me... My history teacher, probably one of my favorite teachers I will ever have and one that inspired me to actually give a s**t about learning, left the school to make a home for his family and his new baby back in New Jersey where he was from. He came into my class one the day he left and dropped a big block wrapped in red butcher paper on my desk, patted me on the back, smiled at me, then left.

I have an insane love for Kurt Vonnegut. He was the author that kickstarted my love for literature and writing. I opened up the paper and saw 2 obviously old but well-kept books in there. Both with your typical kinda cloth & hard paperboard covers. One of them was from like 1956 and the other is from 1972. the Palm Sunday copy is a limited edition with Kurt Vonnegut's signature imprinted in like a "gold" trim on the cover.

Just a nice story I figured I'd share :0 I don't know many other 19 year olds who are as into old books and great authors (or even reading for that matter) as I am.
