    Changing my perspective on Stephen King

    If you are a reader and haven't tried a few of Stephen Kings books I think you are doing yourself a serious disservice. You can't go wrong with Carrie, Salem's Lot, the Dark Tower series, the Shaw Shank Redemption, etc etc.

    Nobody reads?

    A lot of people definitely don't read, but there are still those of us out there that do. Young adult fantasy got me hooked on reading when I was 10-11. I believe it was the deltora Quest series. Ps I still watch tv and play video games haha.

    The Stormlight Archive

    I love this series, anything by Brandon Sanderson is usually pretty good.. This and mistborn were awesome. Elantris was okay.. 10 years though.. In for a long haul.

    Has anyone read 'the slow regard of silent things' by Patrick Rothfuss?

    I thought it was going to be the third in the King killer trilogy and bought it off amazon without reading the summary.. Haven't started it yet but I was definitely disappointmented when it was delivered and I read what it is about lol

    Post Book Cover: Your Current Read...

    Just finished the wheel of time.. Finally. Took a long time and there were a couple of books that made me want to give up, but I finally managed it and am glad that I did. The last few books were awesome. It really slowed my reading down and unmotivated me a lot compared to normal but well...

    Buying New Books An Addiction?

    I'm stuck on book 10 of the wheel of time.. the last 3 books have been torturously slow and I bought a lot of books that I am excited to read in the process. It sucks that the wheel of time started out so good and has such a rough spot. I heard it gets better after book 10 though. I have to...

    Fantasy series?

    You should probably try Graceling. It's a young adult novel, probably a little more edgy than most of them and has romance and what not.

    Movies that should have been books

    Who is your favourite author, and why?

    As of right now, Brandon Sanderson. I like pretty much all of his books and he is my favorite current author. For all time.. I don't really know. There are just too many.

    Anyone else get motion sick when reading in car?

    My wife gets really motion sick reading in the car, but I can read for hours just fine.

    The books that started it all.

    For me, it was Del Tora Quest. That book series made me really enjoy reading books. I found it at school when they did that scholastic thing where they set up shop at the school and sell books and gadgets. I picked up Del Tora Quest because it had a cool book cover, then plowed through all of...

    Bookless libraries

    I'm not going to lie, I've had the kindle since the first version came out, I have read maybe 3-5 books on it, but I still love paper books so much more. Nothing like looking over and seeing your book shelf, my opinion of course.

    15 Undeniable Truths About Book Nerds

    "We experience book hangover on a regular basis." that one was my favorite

    Narrative and Philosophy

    David Hume's Natural History of Religion, it's a dialogue and he expresses his ideas differently in this book than his other ones because of this. ( can't go wrong with Hume- was a philosophy major in college and he was definitely my favorite.) @ sfg75- Kant's critique of pure reason has to be...

    The Seven Realms Series

    I second this. This series is really good. Her heir series is good as well, but the 7 realms is just on a different level. It has everything to make you not be able to put the books down, and then make you feel disappointed when you finish because there aren't anymore. On a side note, I emailed...
