Noticed you liked Fight Club, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed bunch of kids and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


What non-fiction titles are you reading currently? I enjoy learning about ancient civlizations, inluding ancient Rome. Any suggestions?

Always nice to find other fans of Cornwell. He is my favorite author at the moment. I'm currently finishing up the Saxon Chronicles. Still have Lords of the North and Sword Song to read. What's your favorite series by Cornwell?

And of course, you have to love Tolkien.

Well, it depends on your scale. I tend to rank them based on the pleasure of reading, in which case he is excellent. In literary terms, eh. Flash is fun, and the ebook was helpful in wasting time at work, so he gets a good rating.
Hey, nerd. Nice Star Wars collection. But seriously, this is so addictive, and just gives me extra impetus to buy like 8,000 new books. Thanks for talking me back into it.
