    I just finished the entire Dresden files series. I read each book in about 2 days. just loved it.

    I plan to re-read Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality as I just found out he wrote an 8th book.

    If I can mention this here without some sort of violation.

    Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions, by Greg Koukl.

    For those who share my convictions, a very good read. For anyone else, not so much.

    I realized that I was in need of some... well, something.

    So, I started reading The Path To Love by Deepak Chopra last night. I think I'll read a chapter a night and hope it somehow affects my life positively.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Reading "Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War" by Karl Marlantes.

    Excellent Vietnam war book. I highly recommend it.

    I read that about 25 years ago. A quick read, but disturbing.

    Oh jeez. I slogged my way through all 80 gazillion pages of that series (enjoyably so) wondering how in the world he was going to wrap up the story.

    And when I read the last few pages of the last book, I threw the book against the wall and yelled "aaahhhhh!!! nooooooooooo!!!! he can't do that!!!!".

    I muttered to myself for days.

    I love T.C. Boyle's short stories, perhaps the best short fiction writer we have today, IMO.

    I'm going to the library to pick up Franzen's Freedom. I'm pretty excited as I was a big fan of The Corrections.
