Yeah, he wrote one to fall in between books 4 and 5 with some more backstory added in I'm pretty sure. It's like the shortest one of all of them just from looking at it, but it got really good reviews and I'm sure it will be a solid read. I'll kill it in a weekend once I wrap up Song of Ice and Fire.

But we totally got it in the DAY it came out from someone and I told my roommate who was doing that trade I wanted it so he took it in at old hardback price instead of new and I got it for like 2 doll hairs with my discount :afro: Doubt it was ever even read, so I saved like 25 doll hairs on a new book.

Yeah, it's pretty short; it's 307 pages of moderately large text compared to my 718 page paperback of Wizard and Glass.

Has anyone ever read The Wheel of Time? I've heard great things about that series and some even say it rivals A Song of Ice and Fire

Yes I have read The Wheel of Time... Not the last few books by Brandon Sanderson... but I intend to here soon, one of these days.

It is definately an epic saga... Robert Jordan was amazing... but I've heard a lot of people gave up after book 5 because it just began to stall and nothing ever got done. Well this is true, book 5 was the last book that made any real progression through the timeline. But I enjoyed all the rest of the books, I thought all of them had fun content even if the story did not advance very much... there was still character development. And I'm just a sucker for a good series, I couldn't drop it halfway through.

I am told that Mr. Sanderson has really picked up the pace though... but even after 3 books I don't think he has things quite wrapped up.. Robert Jordan had a ton of loose ends.

I finally got to reading Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

I've heard so many people talk about how good it was and now I completely agree with them. The plot is quite complicated but keeps changing as Card show what's happening through more than one perspective including Ender and his sister. The character development is fantastic. The readers watch Ender start as a small 6 year old boy who wants to be like everyone else, to an intelligent 9 year old who is already leader of a small group of soldiers called a "toon."

I'm currently somewhere in between the beginning and middle and I'm always excited to sit down and read it.

good to know, will definitely be my next series then.

Currently reading A Clash of Kings during my spare time. Loving it

The college that I'm attending this fall requires all incoming freshman this year to read the book 420 Characters by Lou Beach. It's basically a collection of short stories all under 420 characters, which was the original limit for Facebook status updates or something. They're actually pretty cool. Most of them fairly twisted, but fascinating. I've only read a handful, but I would definitely recommend checking it out.

I recently finished Speaker for the Dead (Sequel to Ender's Game) and I'm 250 pages into the third book, Xenocide. A very good series.

Been reading some of Stephen King's books The Green Mile is pretty good so far. I'd reccomend it to anyone that doesnt mind a slow beginning
