Good story.  I liked it better than what they did to the movie (although I enjoyed that, too).  :D

That's nothing, I know this guy who read the complete works of Michael Moorcock one after the other.
mmmm ... Behold the Man ... one of my Moorcock favorites.  ;)

I agree, I Am Legend the book was far better than the movie (but the movie wasn't terribel--though the CGI vampires were terrible).

I've yet to read any Scott Nicholson. Any good?

It will never qualify as great literature, but he has a way with words, and I'm enjoying it so far.

Now that I've finished and thoroughly enjoyed THE POISONWOOD BIBLE by Barbara Kingsolver, it's time for a mind-jarring transition into...

QUARTERBACK OF THE FUTURE by Mike Florio

I've been reading Rip Van Winkle and other stories by Washington Irving. Pretty good stuff, but the language is kinda antiquated at times. After that, I think I'll be reading A Thousand Splended Suns by Khaled Hosseini.

Also, I don't know if this counts, but I'm also in the middle of the first Trigun manga.

Sure it counts, GC. I've been reading Jeff Smith's 'Bone' series myself.

Novel-wise: just started 'The House' by Bentley Little. A little odd and disjointed so far (about 30 pages in), but I can tell he's leading up to something.

Believe it, manga and comics always counts.

I am currently reading 'Sharpe's Escape' by Bernard Cornwell.
My debut novel 'Life Eternal' is now available to buy on Amazon in both paperback and kindle.

Please search 'Aaron J Booth' on Amazon to find the product.

I'm reading "Bloodstream" by Tess Gerritsen. I've read most of her books.
I tend to get hooked on an author and must read all of the books in their series before going on to the next author.  ::)

BBB, I read the same way.  I even did it in China, where bookstores do NOT alphabetize by author.
