Hmm..Anyone here read starship troopers? I'm considering reading that.

yes, read it!

I concur.

I agree also. But "Stranger in a Strange Land" is his best and most profound book by far.

I really need to read that, though I don't know how since I have to much to do.

Just finished reading "Tucket's Travels." Great book, homage to the "old West" of America. And I don't mean cowboys.

I loved it, but I'm kinda biased. I'm a sucker for historical fiction. (How can something even be historical fiction? >_> )

Good show sir.

Actually, it's the second time I've read it, but I'm gonna get rest of the series. Hey Cool AN, do you know if he's written the final Gaunt's Ghosts books?

According to The Black Library, he has.

Um, right.

Anyhoo, I'm somewhat annoyed because the only two places that I can get the rest of the Horus Heresy books don't have them.

Well the book is not in English, but I'm reading stories from British mythology. Quite interesting.

I finally finished Lou Reed's biography.

The book I intend to read next is The Motorcycle Diaries.
