    I started, or at least read past the first couple of pages of 'Ender in Exile'. After the original book, the series went a bit lower in quality, but I have high hopes for this; it seems good!
    wow, the inconsistency is real. y'all should message me

    I just finished The Extended Phenotype. Dawkins is certainly a good teacher, with the clarity of his explanations and the way he handles analogy. And evolutionary biology is just so darned interesting! I was so engaged and happy all while reading. I wish I could write as well as some of these folks...

    Speaker for the Dead was awesome, but the general weirdness of Xenocide and Children of the Mind (both in regards to their science (biology, xenology, and physics) and their plotlines) made them somewhat less interesting and really didn't help my suspension of disbelief.

    Making my way through The World's Wife by Carol Ann Duffy again. Definitely one of my favourite poets, love her distinctive style and wit which shines through brilliantly in this book. Mrs Icarus and Mrs Rip Van Winkle are my highlights.

    I'm currently reading a book called Resistance: France 1940-1945, a book about the Nazi occupation of France during World War II, and the brave men and women of the Maquis (French Resistance) who stood up and performed guerilla attacks on their Nazi occupiers.

    It's pretty good, it's a historical account book. I like it.

    I agree.

    I finished Ender in Exile after a long amount of time with nothing to do, however I'm afraid I read it to fast - Time to read the Hobbit!

    Kognition: First Fragment by Brandon R. Chinn. It's his first published novella and I'm more than a quarter of the way through it. It's pretty good so far. I've found a couple of things missed in editing, but overall, the story is interesting and it's a good read. (I only quit reading because my Kindle's battery died, that's how hooked I am.) If you like video games, scifi, and Norse Mythology, you should read it. I follow Brandon on Tumblr and he's a pretty cool dude and extremely talented.

    Also going back and forth between The Talisman and the Tommyknockers by Stephen King when I have nothing else to do just 'cause.

    I finished George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords recently, and while waiting to get the next book from my friend I zipped through Veronica Roth's Divergent, the current popular teen novel, in a couple days. Now I'll return to The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, since I've been meaning to finish it for forever.

    Since I now work at a bookstore, I feel like there are a gazillion more books I need to put on my to-read list. On the plus side, I get to take books out for free, so it's like having my own personal library.

    Pokéthon was a huge success! Check out our Facebook page for photos from the event!

    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. I do not know why I'm taking this long since the prose is easy as cheese to go through and I plowed through The Silmarillion in a week.

    Maybe I just don't like rural 19th century America as a setting.

    The Bolo series, created by Keith Laumer and continued by David Weber, among other authors. Being a Transformers fan, sentient machines appeal to me.
