Just finished Pillars of the Earth. Very long and ambitious(59+ years of characters life spans). Not bad, gets you to be invested in the characters pretty well. I get sick of church construction by about page 300 but overall pretty good. It did take about 3 weeks of steady reading for me to finish where a normal book is about 3 days but in the end I think it was worth it.

Yes your right its Night Angel. I am not an accomplished speller, so I use spell check and usually am to lazy to re-check it myself.  But as long as a few of you can figure it out I'm good. Thanks for the catch though!

Apparently there is a widget that allows you to link you goodreads with facebook and myspace type of places.

I just stumbled onto a website called Its a site that allows you to catalog and categorize all of your books while rating and reviewing them. To me this was very exciting as I find that I cant remember all the books i've read. Now I have them all by genre and I have a list of books in my wish list that I found based on the ratings and reviews of others. Just wanted to put it out there for everyone and see if anyone was already on the site that wanted to match up our book lists for some ideas and discussions.

Just finished reading the Night Angle Trilogy. Not the greatest writing but I like the concept of the story so in the end I enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend it as the greatest ever but it was a fun read if you got passed the first book.

I just finished The Chase by Clive Cussler. Very fast and exciting read. I got this book for christmas and didn't want it, I love history, and I love fiction, but historical fiction for me is usually as cheesy as it gets. This book though caught me off guard. It was fun, entertaining and intelligent. Great read. Now I'm onto The Host that many of you suggested. Hope its as good as many of you think.

I just took a moment to look up some info on Nicholas Flamel and it seems to me that the author follows the supposed historical figure almost exactly. Its one of the cases that history is more interesting than fiction.

It's more along the lines of the Made for TV Movie's the Librarian with just a pinch of Potter. I also just finished The Time Machine. Its one the the first classic's that I've read and I found it enjoyable.

I just finished Hero of Ages and I must admit that I was a little disappointed. It was slow and drawn out in my opinion, but admittedly I did have very high hopes for this book, perhaps to high. I'm now onto The Magician: The secretes of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, By Michael Scott. It is a young adult book but when I read the alchemist(first in series) I found it engaging so I hope this one wont disappoint.

I have not read all the posts so I'm sure someone has put this on here but, I just finished the Twilight Series. Let me preface this by saying that I am not a teenage girl or a lonely single mother. I am a normal adult male who loved this series. I started this series with nothing in mind beside reading the book before the movie because I like a good vampire story, and to my amazement I loved it. In fact for three day's I could do nothing but read the series. I had my wife driving to get the next book while I was finishing another. I was blown away. Now there is a lot of overdone googly-eye love pages, and I was able to not just look past it but actually embrace it. I must say I was very surprised, and despite the fact that my father mocked me for having the series on the counter I will still recommend it to all my friends.  Look past the young adults section category, look past the droves of young ladies flocking to both read the book and see the movie, and just pick it up. I did it a walmart and when mixed in with groceries no one noticed it. Now I'm in a mad scramble to find a series that can compare to it in style and hopefully equal it writing ability. If anyone has any recommendations please drop me a line.

For me it combined the best of all worlds, action, adventure, mystery, sci-fi....a little for everyone. I thought it was a little heavy on the CGI at times but I was still on the edge of my seat for most the movie. GO INDY!

I'm into A clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. Fantastic series, I recommend it so far. It is long but quite engaging.

It was always a joy to listen to a comic who could sound both intelligent and vulgar at the same time. George was a rare bread unto himself, he will be forever missed.
