"Sex, sin, and Zen," by Brad Warner.
Whenever I hear a politician speaking strongly for or against abortion, all I hear is, "I have no idea how to fix the economy!"

Still reading Feist.  I'm up to Shards of a Broken Crown.  I'm still very, very sad about Jimmy the Hand.

Currently reading All Quiet on the Western Front.  It's a delayed follow-up to Generation Kill, and reminds me that soldiers are the same the world over.

Just finished The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton.  It was awesome, and you will never see the ending coming.

In Feist news, I'm up to King of Foxes.

Also reading a YA novel called Blue Pimpernel.  I usually avoid Lulu books like the plague, but this was recommended to me and it's AWESOME.  If you like superheroes, mockery of the GOP, or sci-fi, this is a good book.  READ IT.

Actually wondering what of my book collection to read next, am surrounded by books, can't really decide what to read...  Will read Wargames Illustrated before I make any decision.
I am serious, and stop calling me Shirley!

"The Shift" omnibus edition by Hugh Howey.  His ebooks are pretty good, and it's amazing how much success this dude has had since starting out as a self-published $1 per title sci-fi author on Kindle/Amazon just a couple years ago.

Makes me wish I could write fiction. Best wishes to those of you who are writing books right now for ebook self-publishing - I hope you succeed, too!

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

I've found a few sites that notify me of free Kindle books every day. Since they are free, I'll sometimes buy them. (If I don't like it, no loss...) At the moment, I have about 350 books on my Kindle, most of which I got for free. I am slowly working my way through them, though it's taking a while, and I keep getting more.

At the moment, I have about 350 books on my Kindle, most of which I got for free. I am slowly working my way through them, though it's taking a while, and I keep getting more.

I've done that a lot too. I got complete collections of H.G. Wells and H. Rider Haggard, Jules Verne, etc etc, and it's not just the pre 1923 stuff that's available for free. Plus, there's just tons of $1 to $3 sci-fi, adventure and w/e from new authors - some pretty damn good ones, too.

All in all, my Kindle has been the best digital device I've ever bought for it's value and ease of use. I've even used the browser in an emergency when my desktop bricked, and could hear my tunes on the mp3 function with my headphones on a jack adapter.

I'll spring for a 3g one soon, so I'll have 'net next time we get a bad storm/long power outage here in FL.

The Last Judgment the link is just the excerpt. I read it in the doctor's office, hence the age.

I actually find it to be one of the more tasteful stories involving gender reassigment and such like that.
