Or perhaps a treatise on the Peruvian Gods, who wield lightning that kills people and knocks down trees!!
Okay I have a bone to pick with Spell and Aahhz! Awhile back you recommend the Dresdan files as good books to read! I have since become an addict and just finished all 12 books - now I have to wait until July for the new book to come out. :( Any suggestions how to fulfill my literary leanings until then? I don't want to resort to eye candy (beach books) from now until July.
Seriously guys - thanks -they were good reads!
In the meantime, I'm catching up on some Terry Brooks stuff that I've had sitting around for a while.
I've been re-reading Sherlock Holmes stories, thanks to Project Gutenberg and my Mom's Nook Color.
On the beer front, I find myself in Oahu going to class on swing shift for two weeks, so I have time in the day to hit the Kona Brewing Co. pub (and probably some beaches and museums and stuff, I imagine). Anything else I should be looking for while I'm here?
Loved the Dresden books, too - good fun; good pick.
Sig, if you like Holmes, you could try a little Nero Wolf (rex stout), also; it's a little lighter than Sherlock, but just as interesting.
(I'd write a little more about what the story is about, but it might ruin it for you, so I shall not).
Wonder if he ever met Douglas Adams...
I like a lot of the writing out there. Amazing stuff.

I wish it were Barnes and Noble that was closing instead. I never liked them. Borders was my favorite bookstore. And the sad part is that they were the second largest bookstore chain in the US, so for them to be closing is a profound statement on the state of the economy right now.
I used to buy media at Borders, but I haven't been buying much lately.
Now... they're going away. A shame, but I have rarely gone to that store in the past several years. I guess I'm part of their problem, heh.
Don't worry - Aahz buys has enough books for both of you. <g>
Heh... probably a lot of truth to that.
Well, no wonder Border's is going out of business then!
don't they whipe aside like they show in the iphone commercial?
Aahz has slowed down his book buying.. Ran out of places for shelves.
Shouldn't have abandoned that self-storage unit... :)
