    As it turns out, I have to work on the day that Palahniuk will be here in Kentucky. It makes me want to punch a baby.

    I just got a box with The Road and Heart-Shaped Box from my sweetie.

    They go into the reading rotation as soon as I finish the Harry Potter re-read.

    You talk way too much about punching babies.
    A true firewasp ninja would never wear such a ridiculous sweater.

    There's logic in nonsense.

    Just started The Bourne Ultimatium. I had read the first two long ago, and just finished re-reading them. Funny thing is I just saw the trailer for the movie. I was like *HUH*? I hadn't seen the first two movies, but I had heard they didn't really resemble the books much. Well, while the trailer for The Bourne Ultimatium looked like it might be a good movie, it sure doesn't resemble the book I'm reading.

    When I bought my tickets and book for the Palahniuk tour, I also got Heart-Shaped Box. I'm excited to read it.

    I just started Wizard for Hire. It is a collection of the first three of Jim Butcher's Dresden books, which the show on SciFi The Dresden Files is based on. I am really enjoying his writing style.

    Favorite quote so far: "But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face. "

    I recommend Imajica, too. It reminds me a lot of the Dark Tower. Or at least its settings and mythology. I need to read it again soon.

    I recently finished up Lisey's Story and the sixth Harry Potter novel. Right now I am reading The Worthing Saga by Orson Scott Card. It's my second time reading it. Card is such a readable little fucker. I'd highly recommend it, especially to anyone who was into Asimov's Foundation series.

    i'm currently reading a bunch of kids books i hadn't rad since I was way younger, like Maniac Mcgee, Red Badge of Courage, Call it Courage, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Banner in the sky. I also ordered all the Prentice-Hall Literature readers they use from 7-12+ in schools. So I'm working my way thru them. There's ALOT of good shorts and excerpts in those books. I'm also gonna start my reread of The Good Earth and The Living Reed by Pearl Buck here shortly, i really like her. Can't wait for the new Harry Potter as well, and my sister hasn't asked me to buy it from her.

    Has anyone here ever read the Tamora Pierce books?

    How about the My Teacher is an Alien series? I loved those books. Hannah even remembers one of them, which gives me the warm fuzzies.

    *sigh*

    If only my teacher really had been an alien. Things would be so different.

    Imajica is a fantastic book(s).
    If I told you about her, the princess without voice, what would I say?

    I'm sure TONS of people know about that book.

    and Aaron, i did read the my teacher is an alien books, i just dont think they were that good.

    I also read all the goosebumps, and even though they were horribly written, the one about the Dummy freaked me out so much, i had to reread it a million times.

    shit, one school year (4th grade) I read the ENTIRE Hardy Boys series. That's a shitload of books. The original set is 66 books i believe, which is as much as the books in the bible. nowadays they've added alot of crap, but I didn't read those. They're not worth it.

    That dummy one was horrifying.

    I also read all the Christopher Pike books when I was a pre-teen. I was preparing myself for Stephen King.

    I also loved the Nancy Drew books as a kid and the Bobsey Twins. I also liked the Little House on the Praire books.

    I'm sure tons do, but you're the first I've known of. That's all I'm sayin.'

    I didn't read Goosebumps much, but yeah, I did read that dummy one. Didn't they turn it into an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, too?

    Oh man, who remembers the Choose Your Own Adventure books?

    I loved those things. I bet I've read them all.

    Those were the best. It was fun going through and deliberately not ending up with the same story every time.

    I loved the Choose Your Own adventure books. I think they are directly responsible for me becoming a Dungeons and Dragons nerd. I had an awesome one when I was in 8th grade or so that you actually used dice and such with, but I read it so much that it fell apart.

    i read the little house on the prairie books, they were ok, for girls. Also the Boxcar Children series, another mystery solving kids series (there were a million of those back then, huh? )

    I never really liked Pike too much, because I had already read IT the first time I picked up one of his books. The Last Vampire Trilogy was really good though, as well as Monster. For some reason that book i really liked.

    Yea, The Little House stuff is pretty girly. So were the Babysitter's Club. But I read those too.
