What's the consensus?
The school is still out.
George R.R. Martin - A Storm of Swords (Pt 1 Steel and Snow)
Tempted to read some now, but gonna do some more cisco revision.
IMO A Storm of Swords is the best of the books in the series that Martin has so far written.
Nausea by Sartre
I just finished "Slings and Arrows Book 2" and will start "Icebound" by Koontz tomorrow.
Was dusting off the bookcase yesterday. I picked up David Gerrold's "The Trouble with Tribbles" - the story of how he conceived and sold the story. Wasn't really intending on reading it - but I got into it. It's been so long since I picked this up and I am finding it as good a read as I remember - or rather as good a read as I forget, because I don't remember a lot of what's in it.
Star Trek: Devil's Bargain
Reginald by Saki
North Dakota DOT Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction.
Actually, I'm listening to the book on tape in the car. Don't spoil it for me.
^^^ Between Old Yeller, Marley and Me, and the North Dakota DOT Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction, I don't know which ending left me tears more. Damn you for bringing that up.
Right now my fiction book is The Wrecker by Clive Cussler, and for non-fiction it's Pat Summit's autobiography.
No consensus. The test is to determine whether they can summarize, in English, both a written article and audio-only lecture, and describe how the two arguments differ--to describe the arguments given both for and against the given topic. So, yeah, thrilling reading.
How did your move go? All settled in?
Just wait until you see the movie. They really captured all the excitement of the book.
The other day, David was musing about perhaps writing a book about his experiences during the first season of TNG. If he does, I'm sure it'll be quite the read.
Meh, it was a ripoff of the Tacoma Narrows disaster.
On topic... I finished Reality 36 today, and just started Triggers by Robert J. Sawyer. (It took me a while to track down a copy - even though the paperback only came out yesterday, two stores were already sold out.) I'm only about ten pages into it, though.
I own a Lab, don't get me started. Saw Marley and Me on a flight a few years ago and was a blubbering mess. Old Yeller didn't help either.
As for the ND specs...Release the Bakken.
Yeah, that sounds a bit mind numbing. The actual topic is a bit interesting, though.
Downloaded The Complete Sherlock Holmes so I started A Study in Scarlet.
