Movie. 2 hrs of my life I'm never getting back. I could have used that time watching paint dry

I heard the movie was not that good. How far have you gotten in the series?

Scott (SHissong) | 114 comments I recently read:
The Gunslinger (3rd time)
Needful Things and
Gwendy's Button Box

Now I'm reading The Girl in the Maze. OK so far, just a little confusing with time jumping.

John Devalle | 12 comments As the Koh-i-Noor diamond was in the news recently, I decided I'd read 'The Moonstone' by Wlikie Collins, a novel based on that jewel that's so beautiful but is thought by some to be cursed. Collins novel is regarded as a classic, but I couldn't get on with it. I don't think I've come across a book so laboriously written, and such hard labour to read. So I gave up long before the end.

It is a funny take on Christmas and murder in a small town, with a misguided angel appearance and a hilarious zombie apocalypse ending, sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

I've finished 1-7 of The Tome of Bill - Volume 1 by Rick Gualtieri. It was entertaining.

I've been reading (well, listening) to some S.M. Stirling and his odd dystopian alternate future books. Dies the Fire (Emberverse, #1) by S.M. Stirling and Island in the Sea of Time (Nantucket, #1) by S.M. Stirling. Both enjoyable reads.

I managed book six of MHI, came out in Audio-book form recently.

Some Sci-fi with Barbarians at the Gates (The Decline and Fall of the Galactic Empire, #1) by Christopher G. Nuttall which was reminiscent of Honor Harrington by Webber.

I keep telling myself that I need to start reading more nonfiction. I always seem to enjoy it when I do!


message 4791: by Jim (new)

Jim (JimMacLachlan) | 656 comments Cowboys and Gangsters: Stories of an Untamed Southwest by Samuel K Dolan is a nonfiction account of the early 1900s along the Mexican border from Texas to Arizona. It mostly documents the crazy period of Prohibition. The old meeting the new, cowboys chasing bootleggers with cars, lots of shooting, & other violence, but all told in a factual way through newspaper accounts & reports. Quite interesting. I gave it a 4 star review here:
