Can anything that has a beginning not have an ending?


Can anything with a beginning be real?

It's always been a principle of my studies, always. It's one of the reasons I have a magazine getting ready to go to distribution.

I don't think baja is an a-hole, and I don't know why you think he's an a-hole either.

The Forever War by Dexter Filkins. It's about his experiences as a reporter in the Iraq and Afganistan wars. A really good read.

Forever war? Pffft. Those are conflicts with clearly defined and achievable goals that will end shortly. And there is no war profiteering going on, either.

A whole year since the last post? Seriously? Has no one read anything good in the last year?

Recent reads:
"The Hunger Games," "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins
These were recommended by a friend at work and are the best "kids books" (yeah, right, teenage kids battling to the death) since Harry Potter.

All five of the "Underland Chronicles," also by Suzanne Collins.
After ripping through the "Hunger Games" books I simply had to read these as well. Not as good, but still fun reads.

All seven of James Alan Gardner's "League of Peoples" series (re-read).
A sci-fi series where humanity is not the central species. While not entirely novel, it's still refreshing when an author can put humans in the back seat (back end of the bus in this case) of the power structure of the far-future inter-stellar community.

Currently reading:
The "Chanur" series by C.J. Cherryh (pronounced cherry).
Another far-future sci-fi where humans aren't the top of the pyramid. This author hasn't even let them on the bus for these books (though she does in other books/series). Cherryh is also one of a very few authors who can do sci-fi and fantasy very, very well.

On-deck:
Not sure, though I'm sure it will be something! My "to read" list has gotten so freakin' long it's sometimes hard to pick and choose. Maybe I'll just head for the library without my list and see what falls to hand. I've found some of my favorite books that way.

My daughter and wife just finished the Hunger Games and liked it. I'd read it, but I'm too manly.

Currently reading Dr. Zhivago.

Ready Player One is a good one especially if you grew up in 80s and are a gamer. Currently reading Tebow's book.

Had not heard of that one. How did I miss it? I'll probably read that. Thanks.

I made the mistake of picking up book 1 of the Wheel of Time series. I am now on book 8.

I read Tell-All by Chuck Palahniuk. It wasn't very good seems to me his stuff has been trending downhill for a while now. Now I am onto the Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin which is amazing. I have never been much of a fantasy reader but I really am enjoying the A song of ice and fire series. Anyone have suggestions for other good fantasy series?

8-9-10-11 are a hard push, but 12-13 are worth it.

^ that. I don't remember 11 being so bad either.

Also you guys should just rest your eyes. You're going to want to read mine a dozen times this summer.

I almost always read Sci-fi. I wanted a break and I was in a book store in Hong Kong when I was traveling (limited options). I had no idea at that time WOT was part of a 13 book (and counting) series. I am enjoying it so far.

You'll hit a wall for a few but worth it to push through.

I thought Catch 22 was a great book and recently read another along that line. Absurdly funny one page, horrifying and sad the next. It's also about pilots, but the setting is WWI instead.

Goshawk Squadron by Derek Robinson. Very good.

Yup - trying to finish Wheel of Time is like competing in an Ironman Triathlon. I believe I gave up after book 9 and one too many chapters describing intricate styles of dress that minor characters were sporting. Sadly our worst fears came to be true when Robert Jordan kicked the bucket before finishing the series.
