075 Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story by Adam Rex
076 Heirs of Empire by David Weber
(Empire From The Ashes)
077 Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
078 Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
079 Furies Of Calderon by Jim Butcher
080 Academ's Fury by Jim Butcher
081 Cursor's Fury by Jim Butcher
082 The Gray Man by Mark Greaney

Books that came from an omnibus are listed in parenthesis with the omnibus title.

Anyone familiar with any of those? If anyone likes fantasy/urban fantasy/mystery, I'd suggest the stuff by F. Paul Wilson, Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison and P. N. Elrod. For military bad-assery, pick up Mark Greaney, David Webber and Lee Child. And book 82 on the list should've been added in somewhere just before book 47, and I only now noticed it wasn't on the list... So the current book I'm actually on is Cursor's Fury. Next book is book 4 of the Codex Alera series, Captain's Fury by Jim Butcher.

For some reason, another book I have already read didn't get saved to my list. Not sure where it belongs, but:

083 Brains: A Zombie Memoir by Robin Becker

Update. On book 86. I ordered the last two Codex Alera books from amazon. They'll get here by the end of the week (amazon shipped via USPS. Retarded on their part since it's friggin slow). Wish I had books 1 and 2 in hardcover with the dust jacket. If anyone has a used book store nearby that has "Furies Of Calderon" and "Academ's Fury" (in hardcover with dustjacket) in decent shape for a cheap price, I'd be willing to pay you to buy them and ship them to me...

084 Cursor's Fury by Jim Butcher
085 Captain's Fury by Jim Butcher
086 The Wheel Of Time, Book 0: New Spring by James Oliver Rigney Jr.


I'll finish off New Spring, then move on to the last two Codex books, assuming they get in soon enough. Otherwise, I'll move on to book 1 of the Wheel of Time.

Apparently my two Codex Alera books arrived via USPS. But of course, I have to go to the fucking post office to get them in the morning. *shakes fist at Amazon* Use FexEX and UPS, damnit!

Keep updating. Glad to see that people still value books rather than just 'the internets'.

Renee reads like that - mostly "beach-reading" books - Debbie Macomber/Nora Roberts kind of stuff (I could never really enjoy that stuff). We buy and sell loads of them on amazon, rarely spending more than a penny on each (but shipping still gets us). She frequents the library and used book store too.

Personally I read so much for work, that I'm tired of reading when I get time to do my own.

Apparently I have "Cursor's Fury" on there twice.

085 The Wheel Of Time, Book 0: New Spring by Robert Jordan
086 Princeps' Fury by Jim Butcher
087 First Lord's Fury by Jim Butcher
088 Contact by Carl Sagan

089 The Wheel Of Time, Book 1: The Eye Of The World by Robert Jordan

The novel version of "Contact" was SOOOO much better than the movie (mind you I thought the movie was great.).

I've read some very interesting books so far this year.

Mig Pilot: The Final Escape of Lt. Belenko

Fulcrum: A Top Gun Pilot's Escape From the Soviet Empire
(by Alexander Zuyev)

Monster Hunter Vendetta (by Larry Correia)

The first two books are about two Soviet fighter pilots who defected. Viktor Belenko defected by flying his MiG-25 Foxbat to Japan in the mid 1970s, and Alexander Zuyev defected in his MiG-29 in 1989. Both incredible stories of heroism, culture shock, and the evils of communism in practice, coming from the mouths of two men who were supposed to be highly respected and important in their society.

Monster Hunter Vendetta is the sequel to Monster Hunter International, by the same author. Both are fiction books which tell the story of a man who became a monster hunter after being attacked by his boss-turned-werewolf. Very fun books to read.

Depends on the book, really. A 550 page Jack Reacher or Repairman Jack novel I can probably do in 12 hours or a bit less. The first Wheel of Time novel probably took me a day. Just depends on the pace of the book and how interested n the series I am.

And they're actual books. I don't think I could tolerate reading a book on a screen (and the only e-reader I have at work would be my iPhone, and there's no way in hell I'm going to try to read a book on that tiny screen).

Current update:

090 Pastwatch: The Redemption Of Christopher Columbus by Orson Scott Card
091 The Wheel Of Time, Book 02: The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan


I'd going to say that "Pastwatch" is probably the best novel of all the ones I've read so far this year. How well Orson Scott Card did time travel just blew my mind.

Kindles are completely adequate book readers and an ipad works pretty good too. Just my 2 cents. I think a kindle is better, but I would not buy a kindle if I owned an ipad. Ipads are pretty nifty. I got to play with my brothers ipad last weekend. It's pretty slick.

Yeah, they're slick. I don't have the money for one, though, and I like the feel of an actual book in my hand rather than a $600 gadget.

We have a couple ipads at work. I guess some find them useful, but I prefer a real laptop. If I were to read electronically, I wouldn't want something on a lit screen. Some of the devices that allow you to read on a non-lit LCD are easier on the eyes.

094 The Wheel Of Time, Book 04: The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan
095 The Wheel Of Time, Book 05: The Fires Of Heaven by Robert Jordan

I just got in a copy of the 2nd Gray Man novel: "On Target" by Mark Greaney. I may read it next. Won't be too long until the next Repairman Jack novel comes in, "Fatal Error" by F. Paul. Wilson. Will probably take a break from the Wheel of Time to read that one, too.

Anyone else here read the Wheel of Time series?

From the list of books I have posted that I've read, what, pray tell, would make you think I have an interest in "self development" books?

I've heard some great things about that one from my students - they found it to be rather funny how detailed and how every possibility had been covered in so much depth as if a Zombie attack were actually going to happen. I'm not really into that meme or whatever it is, but I'd still be willing to give the book a look.

Yeah, it was a fun read. It's written as if zombies are an actual threat, and that's what makes it humorous.

I need to get my hands on that XD

I am very impressed with the amount of reading! that is great!

I never really got into reading as much as I would have liked ... I enjoy it but never got really caught up in it to the point that I have done it consistently ... there are usually books or authors I like to keep up with, though ... I read a lot for work so when it comes time to have some free time, reading is not usually high on the priority list unfortunately

2) Hell to Heaven
( book 3, Heaven to Wudang will be released after the New Year)

very interesting series, a co-worker got me hooked I think I've re-read each book at least 5 times each. (I'm a speed-reader, so have to re-read books a couple times to catch everything) I had read the very first two books, had to wait for Blue Dragon to become available at the library, when I did a serious pout with jaz to get him to buy them for me. Books are horribly expensive in Oz, so, after a couple days of searching he was able to find all five books at a decent price.

100 The Wheel Of Time, Book 08: The Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
101 The Wheel Of Time, Book 09: Winter's Heart by Robert Jordan

Book 9 is going to be awesome. Currently only a few pages into it. Friday night at work will change that. But yes, 100 books in a year, and counting.

100 is pretty damn good, considering there's only 365 days in a year.

Don't forget to live before you die.

And an update, of course:

102 The Wheel Of Time, Book 10: Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan
103 The Wheel Of Time, Book 11: Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan
104 The Wheel Of Time, Book 12: The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson
105 The Wheel Of Time, Book 13: Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson
106 Jack Reacher, Book 15: Worth Dying For by Lee Child


And now the long wait for the final Wheel of Time book, "A Memory of Light", due out 2012. At least I didn't have to spend 20 years reading this series.
