Kathleen Can I recommend The Edge by Jacob Wenzel. You can get it on Amazon.com and free in the Kindle lending library. Its a funny, touching Sci-Fi romp thru time travel in a huge Winneabago with a great back story involving a Particle engineer, a female cave dweller and her pet Tiger named Fluffy all watched over by a computer named Bob. It has lots of twists and turns including a sweet love story. I think you would like it.

Heather Branson Seeing your widget on your blog inspired me to make a goal for reading 52 books this year, a little more then you but as I have no family or career at the moment, I have the time. :)
Btw, hope you don't think its weird that I read your blog and then followed you to Goodreads, cause actually I already had a Goodreads account( by at least a week or two before I noticed your widget) just didn't realize that they had a reading challenge on it and that inspired me to make a commitment to read even more this year.
Anyway, not sure if you'll get a chance to read this since you're a very busy man from what I can tell. Have fun in Portland and then on to Emerald City Comicon!

The Goodreads reading challenge is a great way to make sure you read. ;-) 52 Books? you trump my 50.

Heather Branson Sweet I'm gonna beat you by 2 books, and I started my challenge 58 days late! Actually though, I'm quite far ahead in my reading and probably should have shot for 80 books if I wanted to challenge myself. Wil's widget inspired me to log how many books I read, I knew it was a bunch, I just didn't realize it was *that* much, so I figured a book a week would be a lot. Lol, live, learn and read :)
Wtg on your challenge too and best of luck on finishing it before the end of the year.


message 5: by Wayne (new)

Wayne Owens Thanks. But you realise I may now have to up my challenge to 53 ;-P

Just so I can beat you by 1 book

Karen Have you read "Redshirts" by John Scalzi? Such a funny book, and a fun "tribute" to Star Trek!


message 7: by Wayne (new)

Wayne Owens I loved RedShirts.

I had to get am American to send me a copy, since it came out in states so much earlier than in UK.


message 8: by Derek (new)

Derek Allen I liked the book, but I expected more distinct voices from Will Wheaton.


message 9: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Heinrich highly recommnend two mysteries- gritty, set in Northern Ireland in the time of the troubles-

The Cold, cold ground and The Ghosts of Belfast.

worth reading!

Loved Redshirts as well- made my trekkie heart happy!


message 10: by Sara (new)

Sara House of Leaves should count as at least two books. That sucker's intense. And my favorite book EVER.
