    Yes, thank you. That's exactly what I meant. Obviously, when a film is an adaptation of a book, it's a different story.

    Published my review of Janet Kagen's 1985 novel, Uhura's Song.

    Finished Cloud Atlas, heading out in a few minutes to see the film!

    Currently (re-) reading The Hobbit.

    278 pages through Terok Nor: Day Of The Vipers. (I know, I'm a slow reader, but with college getting in the way, what can you do?)

    Next, I will read The Persistence of Memory, which I just picked up on Saturday.

    Finished Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions, which was fantastic. Not quite a strong as Sorrows of Empire but pretty damn good.

    Also read "Reservoir Ferengi" which was an enjoyable romp.

    Now onto The Never-Ending Sacrifice.

    Getting extremely literary, I've read the first four issues of the Vampirella/Dark Shadows crossover comic. It's fun, but feels like a Vampirella adventure with Barnabas and Quentin squeezed in. I think it would have felt more like Dark Shadows if it had been set in Collinsport instead of the gritty streets of New York City. (Although the comic gets a bit of comic mileage out of Barnabas being a fish out of water, having to deal with big-city strip joints and sex clubs.)

    Maybe Vampi can return the favor by dropping in on Collinswood in a sequel?

    That's what they say, but we won't really know what that means until we've seen the movie.

    ^If it was a ploy to get me to read a few comics it worked:lol: I finished volume 1 and 2 yesterday. Now I am reading an older book I picked up The Klingon Gambit. So far it is decent. Anyone remember this one?

    I was reading The Humans Who Went Extinct, but it's gone missing, so shortly before thanksgiving I began the so-far wonderful 1493, by Charles C Mann. History meets biology with climate and economics thrown in... :D

    ^I have toyed with the idea of reading the Lost Fleet books in the past. I think I will hold off now:guffaw:

    I finished reading Gemworld book2 by John Vornholt the story was okay but not the best story I've read in a older TNG novel recentlty.I like the Reg Barclay story arc I didn't like Melora Pazlar's character in these novels. I never really liked her attitude towards the other Enterprise members.She certainly should've been kicked out of Starfleet.

    Finished The Never-Ending Sacrifice last night. What a great read. A sequel to a great episode of DS9, a great coda to the series as a whole, too. Can't believe I've finished out the DS9-R. (Yes, I know that there are newer DS9 books but they're in Typhon Pact!)

    Taking a small break from Trek-Lit to catch up on my comics/graphic novel reading. Also, I'm planning on reading The Hobbit over the next few weeks in preparation for the movie. I actually haven't read it before, much to my shame. When the LotR films came out, I read each book right before the film. I had every intention of going back and reading The Hobbit, but never did. Now's my chance.

    When I did read the LotR books, I listened to the Rob Inglis audiobooks at the same time. Which actually made me really enjoy the book the more, with Inglis singing all the songs and speaking elvish. I might do that again.
