Let's see, trying to get to the finish of Lord of The Rings, then either Mogworld or Mass Effect: Ascension.

Then trying to catch up on Discworld and hopefully onto some Hamilton SF.

Most books have the page number at the bottom of each page. I assume he just checked that.

As a wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

Reading "By The Waters of Babylon." It's a short story in my English textbook.
The City Of The Gods in that story is actually the irradiated remains of New York. "The strange gods Lincoln and ASHING," (Washington) indeed. Post-apocalyptic stuff rules!

A gram is better than a damn.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Reading Weapons of Choice by John Birmingham.

'Bout a US-led multinational armada from 2021 getting sucked into a artificial wormhole and being sent back in time to a few days before the Battle of Midway back in WW2 and appear next to a American fleet.

Best part of all, other ships get sent back too and get captured by the Japanese.

So yeah, its awesome.

And did I mention they have lasers and Metal Storm weapons?

Reading "Battle: 5000 Years of Conflict: An Illustrated Guide."

Quite informative, really.

I just finished A Clockwork Orange and The Gone Away World. I will recommend both books to any person who needs something to read or even wants something to read. Although The Gone Away World by Nick Harkaway is a bit of a challenging read because the beginning is rather slow.
