4170 I've read the blog post and the official release. The release doesn't give out any information. The only thing I got out of it is that terms have not been completely determined and stuff is still in the works. I hope what Otis wrote in the blog remains true and that GR will keep to the idea of sharing the love of books, etc. I'm hoping that means GR will not become a corporate drone.

I know data mining is the thing to do. I'm aware I signed up for it to an extent by using Amazing, Facebook, Goodreads, etc. I hope if changes in privacy settings, user agreements, etc are made, a notice will go out to users to give us a chance to read what's happening and let us decide.

I do NOT want to see crappy ads showing up on GR. Nor do I want to see the the relative clean layout change into something clunky & hard to navigate.

It would really suck if GR becomes a commercial machine to sell books/etc for Amazon. The PR that users can give to books and authors is a great tool. I hope that doesn't become abused.

I publish reviews all the time. Will the readers maintain ownership of the reviews?

I loved Stanza! I turned to Aldiko because Stanza died.

I'm not a fan of monopoly and that seems to be one of Amazon's goals. I like having options.

4170 This is pretty cool! Torment is one of my favorite PC games. =)

4170 Finished Sealed with a Curse! =) It's a cool take on vampires & werewolves. The judge is still out on magic but I really enjoyed it. Good mix of everyday & not so everyday heroes, etc.

I'm resisting peer pressure on Frost Burned and looking to read the following:
A Conspiracy of Alchemists (The Chronicle of Light and Shadow, #1) by Liesel Schwarz Seven Kinds of Hell (Fangborn, #1) by Dana Cameron Eden by David Holley

ReReading in Bits: Cast In Courtlight (Chronicles of Elantra, #2) by Michelle Sagara West

4170 I have a stack of need to read right now books but I gave in to peer pressure and cruising around with Ever After. =D

4170 Man, every time I see this thread pop up in my notifications, I get sad. =(

I hope physical books stay in trend because that's my first choice. Ebooks are handy while traveling but it is not the same reading experience for me.
4170 There are two I wouldn't have put on that list. Authors that I would have put on the list: Roger Zelanzey, Steven Brust, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey, Orson Scott Card, Janny Wurtz, & Tad Williams.

Those are authors right off the top of my head. =)

4170 I was thinking more like a flower. I like multi-layered meanings. Haha! Language of Flowers.

4170 When I saw the question, my first response was, "Doesn't everyone?" Hehe

Usually, I reread my favorite books. There are several series I've read more than three times. Other books are reread because I'm looking forward to the latest addition to the series or due to a book discussion that perks my interest.

It seems as though people are in competition with themselves to achieve something by "making" sure to read certain books, meet a plan goal, etc. I do all of that but the most important thing is to enjoy the process. If it's not fun, let it go.

I can't figure out where I left off in the Honor Harrington series and decided to start it up from the beginning. I read all the latest additions to Card's Ender series and I really like the new books. I like them enough to try to read Xenocide & Speaker for the Dead again. I didn't care for them too much before but mostly due to the change in focus of those books.

4170 My reading meandered and I finished: Cathy's Book If Found Call 650-266-8233 by Jordan Weisman Cathy's Key by Jordan Weisman Cathy's Ring by Sean Stewart
and 3 Megan Hart novels. Out of the 3, I really thought Switch was beautiful.

The Cathy Trilogy is a hoot! Book 3 is amazing! Anything I griped about in book 2 was totally put to rest in book 3. I really enjoyed reading that trilogy and I hope more interactive novels are written.

4170 First response is to read the book/story first and then see the movie. But, after a little thought, it's probably better to watch the movie and then read the book/story. If I like the story, it bugs me when the movie isn't made well.

4170 It depends on the game & the console. For most PC games, I like having text on. It's second nature for me to listen and read and watch the ongoing action. Once I'm familiar with in-game dialogue for basic stuff, I just don't read the text.

For console games, I love original voice acting (mostly Japanese games) and subtitles. If I have the choice, I always go for the original soundtrack, etc. Translations aren't completely accurate & US dubs tend to annoy me due to not really fitting the character.

4170 Ryan, woah! That ceiling! Ha! Cool place. I don't think people realize how much moldings have gone out of style as being "extra" trimmings in architecture & design.

4170 Ryan, post a link for the Morrison! Sounds like a fun place.
