I will never cease to be amazed by books. Seriously. Just think about it: thousands of people read the same book but in each one’s mind the characters look different and the setting changes and we’re all reading the same thing but it’s so unique to each of us. That is insanely cool.

Basically, if you haven’t read Lock In or City Of Stairs yet, and you’re not working your way towards at least one of them, I’m not sure what you’re doing with your life.

"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".

Do you ever start reading a book by an author you normally like a lot, but then you get about 30 pages in and you find that you’re not really concentrating on it as much as you should, and it’s not a bad book, but you realize you’re just really not in the mood for that particular author’s shit today?

Started reading All You Need Is Kill.  Still haven’t decided whether I’m gonna shell out the cash to go see the movie while it’s still in theaters.  (Unusually enough, I’ve heard from several people whose movie opinions I trust that the movie is better than the book…)

Anybody else ever get the munchies while reading?  Just me?  It’s not even stomach-hunger.  It’s like my mouth just wants to snack on something.

I honestly can’t remember whether or not I’ve read anything by Kim Stanley Robinson.  So it’s probable that I haven’t… yet.  What do you recommend?

paulidus said: I’m about halfway through Dust, looking forward to see how it ends. I was a bit disappointed with Shift, apart from Donald’s section it didn’t reveal much.

Yeah, Shift kind of meandered and didn’t really feel like it went anywhere specific.  Honestly, while I liked the series as a whole, I felt like the ending was kind of anticlimactic.  Like, you already kind of know where everything is going, even if you don’t know exactly how all the pieces are going to fall.  Although, weirdly, it felt less anticlimactic somehow when I reminded myself that the series was originally self-published as a series of novellas.  If that makes sense.  It was like remembering it retroactively calmed down some of the buildup towards the end, in my memory, or something.  Haha.

Getting off the computer early tonight and trying to figure out what I’m going to read next. Just finished the WOOL books. I got the first book of the Southern Reach trilogy, but I know the others are coming out in May and September, so I might wait until I have the whole thing. Possibly starting On Such A Full Sea. Or re-reading House Of Leaves again, like I’ve been threatening to do. Hmmm…

So I found out why I’ve never seen any of the other books related to WOOL in a bookstore.  One of them is just sold out and you can still order it.  The other one is actually print-on-demand.  Like, there are no copies in a warehouse somewhere; the publisher literally just makes one and sends it out when you order it.  I ordered both books, and the guy at Barnes & Noble was surprised that such a recent book was print-on-demand.  Apparently, it’s usually older books.
