My first update of the year!!!

Finished:

Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card - 5/5
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - 3.5/5
Xenocide by Orson Scott Card - 4.5/5

Slow at parts, but overall excellent and continued the story very well. Book also had the same conversation occur effectively several times, but it is very heady and makes you think.

Heretics of Dune by Frank Herbert
Endymion by Dan Simmons

How was it? When I first heard of it, I had to roll my eyes. Now I've been reading Unholy Night by S.G. Smith and I've enjoyed it. Here is its trailer.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:



I also picked up a library book of Scandinavian folkore and legends. My background is Norwegian so its been interesting in that regard, even if the stories do depend on characters being incredibly stupid.

Ok, regarding this thread, would it be more efficient and simpler to edit and update a single post? In essence a "sticky" post for each user. This thread is becoming excessive with entire lists being re-posted just to add a single book. Doesn't that seem silly?
